The usage of your own blood concentrates, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) are a naturally occurring concentration of platelets in our blood that are crucial to wound healing, and stimulation of healthy new cells.
Because PRP/ PRF treatments use your own naturally derived blood platelets, most people are good candidates for the treatment. However, patients who have anemia, those taking blood thinning medication or NSAIDS may not be suitable for the treatment, all patients must have a consultation with our naturopathic physician to pre-determine candidacy and effective applications.
A strong topical anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to treatment to reduce discomfort of the procedure. Your blood is drawn by our naturopathic physician into an approved collection kit. The blood is spun to collect either PRP or PRF depending on patient treatment protocol.
The downtime post-procedure is minimal, typically a patient may experience redness and minor swelling for 12 to 48 hours afterward, akin to a minor sunburn.
The most significant results will occur after 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Further improvements will be seen over the next 6 to 12 months post treatment with proper home care regimen.
