Advantages and Disadvantages of PRP Therapy
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a unique and advanced treatment that uses the patient’s own blood to prompt the body’s natural healing process. After years of being used in sports medicine, this technique is becoming mainstream, as medical professionals discover the amazing benefits of using PRP therapy for a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as hair loss and aging. Although this treatment may at first sound unusual, rest assured, we are committed to providing only the safest and most effective procedures available. Here are a few advantages and disadvantages of PRP therapy to keep in mind:

One of the main advantages of PRP therapy is that the procedure uses your own blood. This reduces the risk of the body rejecting or negatively reacting to the treatment and increases the safety and sanitary nature of the entire process.

There is also no downtime required, so you can get back to living your life. In most cases, patients are able to experience the results of their procedure within a few short weeks.
