Patient Information- PRP Skin Rejuvenation Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
What is PRP Skin Rejuvenation Therapy Procedure?
A small sample of your own blood [approximately 60mls], is processed in a highly specialised, state of the art Arthrex Angel® system or the Arthrex ACP™ Conditioned Plasma System, specifically designed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] in a safe, clinical manner and then this Platelet Rich Plasma [ PRP] is injected or applied in combination therapies.
What outcomes should I expect immediately following the procedure?
Slight swelling and redness may be present after the procedure but this is normal and temporary and your specialist surgeon will provide you with appropriate treatment and care.
Is there discomfort following the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment?
Each person is unique and the response to intra-dermal injections will vary, though adverse reactions are rare. Your specialist may use a topical anaesthesia before injecting the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP]. You may feel a ‘tingling’ sensation after the procedure and there may be redness, slight swelling and bruising. These symptoms will disappear. Please discuss this with your specialist.
How long will the procedure take?
The procedure will take on average 30-90mins.
What changes will I notice?
Platelet Rich Plasma encourages tissue growth and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as new tissue cells grow and visible results may take 3-6 weeks. The results continue to improve over time months and last approximately 1 - 2 years. Best results are attained through 1 to 3 consecutive treatments.
We are all unique and so results will depend upon a number of factors including your overall health status, age, dietary variations, whether you smoke, as well as a number of other health factors, including your unique skin type.
Are there any contra-indications to the use of Platelet Rich Plasma?
You must inform your specialist if you are taking medication, including blood thinning [anti-coagulant] medication, undergoing steroidal, or any long-term therapies.
