What is a PRP Treatment?
Another name for PRP Treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments. As you may remember from your human health class in school, there are several different parts of your blood, including platelets. When your body senses an injury, they are dispatched to help the area heal itself. We take this powerful healing factor, concentrate it, and inject it into a treatment area. It jump-starts your body’s natural renewal and repair process. It will add volume to your skin, reversing the signs of aging and help reduce inflammation, a common issue with chronic injuries.
Can I just walk in and get a PRP Treatment at Vanitas if I want one?
First, you will need to meet with one of our experienced providers before we start treatment. We will review several things with you carefully, including your medical history and the goals you’d like to meet with this specific treatment. Our experienced staff will work with you to make sure this treatment is right for you and more importantly, will contribute towards achieving your goals. Once that is reviewed, and you’ve been approved, we will schedule a treatment for you.
What should I expect during my visit to Vanitas for a PRP Treatment?
When you arrive at Vanitas for your scheduled PRP Treatment, we will draw some blood from your body. We will process this blood through a special machine that extracts the platelet-rich plasma from your body and concentrates it into an injection. Once it is ready, it will be applied to the treatment areas as selected by our providers based on your conversations with them.
How long does it take to complete a PRP Treatment and how much recovery time should I expect? Are there side effects I should look for?
A PRP treatment should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. There is no need to take time off from work or activities to recover. In fact, you can resume the rest of your day with no restrictions. There are no side effects other than some occasional bruising or swelling. Since we are using your blood to create this injection, there is no risk for rejection or other side effects. Any bruising and swelling should subside within three days.
What are the advantages of a PRP Treatment at Vanitas?
Unlike medications or implants, there is no chance of an allergic reaction. We are using your blood to create the injection, so your body will accept it without any issues. PRP Treatments have been used for years to refresh someone’s look, jump-start the healing process, and reduce inflammation.
PRP Treatments can also be used in conjunction with other services we have a Vanitas. In many cases, PRP injections can be used to enhance the overall results of the variety of treatments we have available. They can be safely combined without any issues. Chat with our staff to see if a PRP treatment could help enhance another treatment you are receiving here.
When should I start to see improvements after my treatment and how long will they last?
Some patients will experience immediate improvement after a PRP Treatment. Most patients will see significant improvements in about two months. Treatments last up to two years, although you may need an occasional maintenance treatment to maintain your results. PRP Treatments have been shown to be very useful and long-lasting in many patients.
