Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Shore Medical Aesthetics provides patients across Long Island with a wide array of dependable and affordable anti-aging procedures. Among these is platelet rich plasma (PRP) or also known as autologous conditioned plasma. This treatment is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein that is derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. However, this is a new type of treatment, so the long-term benefits are still unclear. Please consult with us to learn more about this treatment and if it can work for you.
As a concentrated source of blood plasma, platelet rich plasma contains several different growth factors and has been investigated and used for such treatments as tendinitis and osteoarthritis, as well as in oral and plastic surgery. And though the benefits may not be entirely evident as of this moment, there have not been any studies that have concluded any adverse effects associated with PRP.
Platelet rich plasma is prepared by taking blood from the patient and putting it through two stages of centrifugation that is designed to separate PRP from platelet-poor plasma and the red blood cells. This step is done by us here at the clinic. The result is a substance that varies from person to person and even from facility to facility, which makes it difficult to understand the effectiveness of the treatment.
