Platelet rich plasma injections have a variety of cosmetic and medical uses. When undergoing treatment, patients often want to know: how long before PRP injections work? The answer depends on the treatment and the way your body responds to the injections.
First off, PRP injections work by stimulating collagen in the treatment area. Collagen takes time to produce. Therefore, some patients may not begin seeing results for a few weeks. This is also why patients may require more than one PRP injection session to see the best results. Generally, patients will begin to experience results a few weeks following PRP injections.
Secondly, the aspects of your body and lifestyle can contribute. If you smoke, this can slow down your body’s healing responses and consequently slow your PRP injection results. Additionally, drinking and certain drugs can slow the rate at which your body heals. Which, in turn, slows the collagen production rate of your body.
Finally, as mentioned, some procedures may require more than one session to see the best results. Such as, PRP hair restoration or PRP for tear troughs may require more than one session.
