Platelet Rich PlasmaPRP Injections

Can Your Body Reject PRP?

Platelet rich plasma is a substance that is derived from a patient’s blood. It exists naturally within blood, but has to be isolated via spinning in a centrifuge. Anticoagulants are often used during the process as well to prevent the platelets from clotting together prematurely. Let’s look at the question, “Can your body reject PRP?”

Since platelet rich plasma comes from the patient’s own body, it is nearly unheard of for the body to reject it. Higher risks of rejection would occur if using PRP from someone else, but this is not done when preparing PRP treatments. While it is not technically impossible, it is highly improbable.

The skin often does become slightly irritated and inflamed following PRP treatment. However, this is usually due to the injections themselves and not the PRP. Rejection of PRP is unlikely to happen and patients generally do not need to worry about such complications with platelet rich plasma.
