What are the Benefits?
- Efficient Recovery
- Minimal Side-Effects
- Low Risk of Allergic Reaction
As a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure, patients typically do not require the extensive rehabilitation period that is needed after a surgical procedure. PRP patients may begin to feel the benefits of platelet therapy anywhere from 3-6 weeks following treatment.
Some patients experience bruising and soreness at the injection site, but adverse side effects are extremely rare.
Because PRP is autologous, or derived directly from the patient’s own body, the risk of an allergic reaction is significantly lower than other injectables.
Blocking signals along the sympathetic nervous system may reduce constriction of blood vessels.
