At Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery, we offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in Minnesota. This is a revolutionary treatment used to repair and rejuvenate the skin and tissues. In this article, we’ve provided answers to the frequently asked questions about platelet-rich plasma.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is a portion of the patient’s own blood with a high concentration of growth factors and platelets. PRP rejuvenates the skin, scalp, vagina and other parts of the body. The treatment can also be used to treat conditions such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, patellar tendinosis, UCL tears and rotator cuff injuries.
Who Is the Right Candidate for PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is recommended to patients who want to achieve a beautifully radiant complexion, restored volume and increased skin firmness. This therapy is also recommended to patients who are experiencing thinning hair and want to restore their luscious locks without surgery. We also offer the O-Shot, which addresses issues such as vaginal laxity and dryness.
What Happens during a PRP Injection?
The patient’s own blood is put into a centrifuge to separate platelets and growth factors from red blood cells. Our doctor then uses a syringe to inject platelet-rich plasma and growth factors into the treatment area. This natural approach grows new tissue and smooths the skin’s texture.
• The treatment typically takes between 30 to 40 minutes to complete depending on the treatment site.
• You need to avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs after treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects to PRP?
No serious complications or side effects have been reported related to platelet-rich plasma therapy. To avoid damage to a blood vessel or risk of infection, PRP should be administered by a qualified doctor.
