How does PRP therapy work?
Valencia Medical Center takes a small amount of your blood (around 30 milliliters) and then uses the centrifuge in the on-site sterile lab to isolate your PRP. She then injects or otherwise delivers your PRP where you need it to experience optimal regenerative benefit.
If you’re suffering from COPD or another respiratory illness, you’ll get PRP therapy through a nebulizer for maximum effect. If you have dry eyes, Valencia Medical Center creates a special eye drop solution as your PRP delivery vehicle. Valencia Medical Center customizes each PRP treatment for your unique needs.
How many PRP therapy treatments do I need?
Most patients get the best results with several treatments over a four to six month period. Three to four treatments is average, but you could need more based on the extent of damage and how quickly your body heals.
Is there any downtime after PRP therapy?
There’s usually no downtime needed after PRP therapy. Valencia Medical Center will give you specific guidelines about returning to physical activity based on where you had the treatment and your current condition.
When will I get results from PRP therapy?
Results aren’t instant, but it’s important to remember that you’re getting a long-term solution instead of a short-term fix. You may experience symptom relief within the first six weeks, with results getting even better as your body heals.
