What to Expect from PRP Treatments
A doctor will perform a simple blood draw and then place it in a centrifuge. Once it is done spinning, the platelets and plasma will be separated from the other blood components, leaving you with platelet-rich plasma. At Elias Dermatology®, the PRP is injected into areas where the patient would like to see improvement. This treatment is often used in conjunction with microneedling to maximize the results. PRP therapy typically takes a total of 30 to 40 minutes. In order to minimize discomfort, a numbing agent is applied.
Initial redness will occur after the procedure and will fade away within one to three days. Some patients heal in as little as one day. It is recommended to repeat the procedure once a month until you have achieved your desired results.
