Depending on the number of areas you want to treat, a different volume of blood will be drawn. Usually this is usually between 10 and 30 ml.
Once drawn, the blood is placed in a centrifuge for about 8 to 10 minutes. In this centrifuge The platelets that will be used for treatment are separated from the rest of the blood components.
Once the cells have separated, the rich platelets are removed and injected into the area of the body where the rejuvenation is to be applied.
Most people will experience mild or moderate swelling in the treatment area, redness, or warmth, which are common side effects and are part of platelet activation. Since a certain volume of fluid has to be administered, swelling is inevitable. Bruising may also appear that may take several days to disappear.
The recovery phase of PRP treatment is minimal and you can return to routine with some care.
Don’t do strenuous activities such as playing, running or intense workouts that induce a lot of sweating and heat, until the recovery phase is completed. Sweating will cause more irritation and will also cause bruising and/or swelling in the treated area.
The procedure itself is safe. You may feel some pain, bruising, and swelling after it.. These symptoms tend to disappear within a few days.
The biggest risks come from the way the blood is handled. It is essential that the blood drawn from the body is kept sterile. Otherwise, you could get an infection. That is why it is so important that you perform this procedure with the help of an experienced professional such as Dr. Marisa Manzano.
