Plasmolifting PRP FAQ

  • Do I have to worry about the use of blood products?

    The patient’s own blood is used for the procedure so there are no transfusion risks or blood borne infection from a donor.

  • How long does it take?

    Generally a PRP injection requires an initial visit to see if the injury would benefit from such treatment, then a follow-up visit for the treatment itself is scheduled. The actual injection process takes about 45 minutes and a majority of that time involves drawing and processing the patient’s blood for the injection.

  • Is PRP Painful?

    Patients typically tolerate the procedure well, although post-injection soreness is expected given the PRP-induced inflammatory response, in some cases.

  • Are there any exclusion criteria that inhibit someone from getting PRP?

    Severe anemia, low platelet count, abnormal platelet function, active systemic infection or active cancers are all contra-indications.
