Platelet Rich Plasma is made from a small sample of your own blood (approximately 1.5 oz). The process concentrates the platelets found in the blood sample. These concentrated platelets contain huge reservoirs of growth factors. Growth factors are natural components of your body. Clinical data has shown that growth factors may enhance and accelerate your body’s normal healing process. After being processed, your growth factors are then re-injected into the area being treated.
This treatment is natural in that your own cells are used, treated with a chemical that is not foreign to the body. Since a distillate of growth factors from your own blood (PRP) is used, there should be no sides effects from the material injected.
The body reacts to the treated cells as it does to a wound and immediately starts repairing the tissue. This builds the underlying tissue with tightening, smoothing, and increased blood flow (which makes the color more attractive). You should see improvements within 12 weeks, though there is usually a return to prior treatment status in 3-5 days as the water is absorbed and prior to the complete action of the cellular regenerative process. Within 2-4 weeks you will see improvement with continued charges for 12 weeks.
There’s actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of stem cells, so the change is not from something foreign being in the body but from the body actually rejuvenating and growing. The PRFM stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels (neovascularization).
Studies have proven that the greatest results from PRP are derived from a double spin, opposed to a single spin. The reason for this being that more platelets are concentrated in a double spin device. Sarnia Anti-Aging clinic is proud to be a provider of a Harvest SmartPrep 2 system.
The results of this treatment should last, but results may vary and research documenting the longevity or results are ongoing.
Dr Al-Saadon uses top of the line diagnostic tools to identify concerns and help treat his patients. Therapeutic treatments often require additional testing in order to properly diagnose concerns.
Ultrasound machine is used for guided bone marrow expiration and guided delivery of stem cells to the joints. This reduces the risk of injury and to improve safety.
