Is PRP A One Time Treatment?

By | PRP Injections

Platelet rich plasma procedures are a form of regenerative medicine that can achieve a variety of goals such as non-surgical hair restoration and as an alternative to filler injections. You may notice that many providers (including PRP In Seattle) price their procedures in packages. So, is PRP a one time treatment or not?

PRP treatments can technically be a one time treatment. However, most procedures that use platelet rich plasma will provide better benefits if a patient undergoes successive sessions. For example, about four to eight weeks after your first PRP injection session, you will come back for another, and so on. 

Since PRP promotes a collagen and healing response, it is best to have another session when the initial one begins to wane. This helps to keep the bodily response constant, which for procedures such as hair restoration and under eye injections is ideal for the best possible results.

Can Your Body Reject PRP?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections

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.
