When to do PRP:

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.

What to Expect

Pre-numbing

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.

Injection

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.

Results

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.
