How do doctors increase platelet concentration when preparing tubes for PRP?
PRP preparation is a bit of a delicate process.
Dec 10, 2021
Thanks for the great question. Preparing PRP well is a bit of a delicate process and there are a variety of PRP systems on the market. Common ones in use are designed to be quick and yield a high volume of PRP, but not necessarily a high concentration of platelets. In general, PRP can be prepared through a single- or double-spin process. Single spin is limited in terms of the concentration which can be produced, maximum usually around 2-2.3x, but usually lower, on average 1.25x. This is from…
Can a PRP with Microneedling shrink fat or cause fat loss in the face?
PRP is generally very safe with no risk of volume loss or fat reduction
Dec 1, 2021
PRP contains many growth factors and cytokines which improve blood flow, and recruit stem cells to the local area, to help with tissue regeneration and repair. It’s important to ensure that both the PRP kit and microneedle device being used are approved by the FDA and/or Health Canada. Risk of scarring is very low, in fact PRP and microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of scars and some microneedle devices have received approval for this indication.
Sometimes, PRP can be injected…
Is a technician supposed to wipe my face after PRP microneedling?
We don’t usually need to wipe the skin after PRP microneedling.
Dec 1, 2021
Usually, the skin is cleansed (e.g. wiped with chlorhexidine) before such a procedure, but not afterwards, as there might still be some PRP on the skin surface and you don’t really want to be wiping it off. Sometimes there is excessive serum visible on the skin afterwards and this excess could be gently dabbed with a clean dry non-woven gauze pad. Most PRP is absorbed quickly into the skin during the procedure, so even if the skin was wiped after the procedure, not much PRP would be removed…
When injecting PRF in the under eye area to rejuvenate, how many ml of PRF are recommended for each und
Anywhere from 1-2 mL, more if upper cheeks are included.
Nov 19, 2021
PRF stands for Platelet-rich fibrin, and differs from Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP), in the fact that the platelets are activated in PRF. Fibrin matrix is a kind of gel which acts to support cellular repair and rebuilding process. It’s very sticky and difficult to inject through a needle, but there is a small window of time when it can still be injected, up to 15 minutes after the activation process starts. Activation could be through an external agent, such as a tiny amount of calcium…
I am curious if I could do Acell + prp twice a year, 6 months apart?
Yes, Acell + PRP could be done twice a year. The right frequency depends on the situation.
Oct 29, 2021
First, it should be stated that using Acell for hair growth is considered off-label. Even PRP for hair growth is still considered by many as experimental, although a quick search on PubMed will show the evidence for PRP is growing quickly.
Having said that, ssing Acell + PRP every 6 months should not be a problem. I suspect it may even be a good frequency for many patients with mild to moderate androgenetic hair loss. On the other hand, if your hair loss is mild, you may be fine with once a…
