Platelet-rich plasma of PRP treatments are becoming more popular. They are being used for sports injuries, to treat hair loss, and much more. The treatment uses a person’s own blood cells to improve healing in the specific area where it is injected.
Platelet-rich plasma consists of plasma, the liquid portion of your blood, and a type of blood cell that is important in healing. The clotting properties of platelets are well-known. They also are imbued with growth factors that encourage cell reproduction, tissue regeneration, and healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma concentrates more of your blood’s platelets to increase the healing components.
The process of creating this platelet-rich plasma is done by a clinician. They will draw some blood from you and place it into a machine that will rapidly spin the sample. These separate components of your blood, leaving the platelets in your plasma in a more concentrated form.
PRP injections can be used to treat injuries like torn tendons, muscle injuries, tendonitis, arthritis-related pain, and joint injuries. These are also becoming very popular for cosmetic treatments, as well. Medical professionals have found that PRP injections work well for encouraging hair growth in balding areas, especially for the condition of androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness in women and men). Some dermatologists are using this for facial treatments which are commonly known as vampire facials. PRP injections are also being used to increase sensitivity in the genitals. It can encourage better sexual function.
The number of PRP treatments you need will depend on what issue you are addressing. If you are using PRP for hair loss it is recommended that you have three treatments done at four to six-week intervals. This will be worked out with the clinician for the best results.
In the case of injuries, PRP injections have been done at eight-week intervals, but only require one or two injections.
If you are considering a vampire facial the frequency of PRP treatments is much less. You may only need to have recurring treatments anywhere from six to twelve months apart.
For other uses of PRP injections, you will need to check with a clinician to talk about what is recommended for the best result.
As with any procedure that are many things that get factored into the cost of a procedure. Since there are very few insurance companies that will cover the cost of PRP injections, the cost can be an important factor.
The cost of PRP injections can run from $500 -$3000. This price range is taking into account that different areas of the country have different cost structures. Keep in mind that some of the treatments will require multiple sessions to achieve the goal that you are looking for.
The time it takes to see results from PRP injections will depend on what type of treatment you are getting, your age, and your body’s natural healing process.
In the case of hair loss treatment, you should start to see improvement in your hair texture in as little as two weeks. Hair growth tends to take longer to be noticed, more in the range of three to six months.
For a treatment like a vampire facial, the PRP treatments will most likely see the best results in two to three weeks.
