PRP Treatments FAQs
What is PRP Science, in a simple explanation?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from your blood is processed and inasf jected into areas in need of rejuvenation. The PRP acts as a “messenger” to signal your body to send stem-cells and heal the injection sites. The net result is accelerated tissue, vascular, and collagen growth in the entire injected area, be that hair, skin, joints or sexual organs.
What is The P-Treatment, in detail?
The secret is harvesting and concentrating the perfect Platelet Rich Plasma. After drawing a minimum of 60 cc of your blood, Dr. Dunn uses specialized equipment to separate, isolate, and concentrate the fraction of the plasma clinically proven to stimulate stem cells. Blood must be concentrated by a factor of 10- fold in order to create a cell/volume ratio that produces results. She then meticulously mixes your PRP with an all-natural activator and injects this cocktail into the desired areas. Activation of PRP is time- and technique-sensitive, and delay in injection once activation occurs will diminish effectiveness. Dr. Dunn uses this knowledge to separate the PRP into multiple small syringes and thus only activates the exact amount to be injected in each area.
Once the cells are injected in to the desired areas, a communication cascade occurs within the body between the injected cells, the particular anatomical site and circulating stem cells to “heal” and rebuild defective and aging anatomy. The body recognizes and identifies anatomy, so that the injected PRP cells “know” to enhance the immediately available tissue/hair/vessels/nerves in most need.
This translates into increased vitality, health, performance, size, and sensitivity of the treated areas.
Are there any side effects? Risks? Downtime?
P-Treatments are simple, in-office procedures. The injection itself takes about five minutes, although your total time in office will be about 1.5 hours. Proper processing of PRP, according to Dr. Dunn’s requirements, require more time than other clinics.
There is little or no downtime. For hair and facial treatments, most patients will want to take about 24-hours at home, due to temporary redness and leaving some product on the hair, in particular.
As far as side effects go, that is really one of the beauties of the P-Treatments: since it is made from your own blood, there are little or no known side effects!
