PRP therapy can tackle a wide range of skin conditions and other problems using the healing powers of platelets taken from your own blood. PRP therapy can be very effective, but it does take some time for the full results to appear, so it is important to know what to expect after the treatment.
After the Treatment
The treatment usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes. The more injections you need, the longer it will take. If you are having PRP therapy in combination with another kind of treatment, such as micro needling, it can take a little longer too. You shouldn’t need any downtime after PRP therapy. You can go back to your normal routine right after your appointment, so you won’t need to take any time off work or avoid any social events. Although the impact of the treatment won’t be visible immediately, there won’t be any negative effects either.
You may notice a small amount of redness or bruising where the needle went in, but this should go away quickly. However, there are no known side effects of PRP therapy, which is very safe as it is performed using a natural ingredient taken from your own body. We aren’t putting anything into your body that doesn’t belong there as we take the platelets from your own blood.
The Results of PRP Therapy
The effects of the PRP treatment should appear over the next few months, but you may need to come back for additional treatments in order to ensure the best results. The number of treatments and the time it takes for the results to show will depend on your reason for having PRP therapy and the severity of the problem. Most people will see results within three months, after having several treatments. The effects of the treatment can last for a couple of years.
