Are PRP treatments safe?

Within the last few years platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has become an in-demand skin rejuvenation treatment. The regenerative properties of PRP make it a very effective anti-aging cosmetic treatment. It can reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and also stimulate collagen. The benefits are clear, but are PRP treatments safe?

What is PRP?
PRP is a treatment that uses your own blood platelets to rejuvenate the skin, and improve your complexion. The platelets are rich in growth factors that help to initiate skin repair, by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, andnew cells.

PRP treatment can be used on various parts of the body, but is commonly applied to the face and neck. PRP will enrich the tone and texture of your skin. Results can be seen about 3 weeks after treatment, and improvements will continue for several months.

How does it work?
A small amount of blood is extracted from the patient, and it is then passed through a centrifuge allowing the platelet rich plasma to separate from the red and white cells. The PRP is then injected into the targeted area of the skin.

Are PRP treatments safe?
PRP treatments are generally quite safe, since the platelets are derived from your own blood. There is therefore little likelihood of an allergic reaction. However, PRP therapy is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
