Patients who are dealing with skin issues, hair loss, or issues relating to wound healing will naturally seek out procedures that can address their concerns effectively. With the multitude of treatments out there that claim to address these conditions, it can be difficult to determine which one will elicit the best results. Finding a ‘magic bullet’ treatment is considered by most to be a fantasy. 

At The Ariel Center, PRP in Tijuana is a proven treatment for everything from wound healing to skin conditions and hair loss.

What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a technique that involves drawing the patient’s blood and extracting platelets and growth factors, similar to stem cell treatment. The resulting formula is then injected back into the patient’s body in the targeted treatment areas. 

Since its inception, PRP treatments have shown great ability in stimulating the repair of tissues in the body, such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. PRP mimics the body's natural injury response by triggering the activation of platelets. This platelet activation plays a vital part in the healing of soft tissues. 

Data shows that PRP effectively treats everything from osteoarthritis and tendonitis to psoriasis and dermatitis. The anti-inflammatory properties of platelet-rich plasma make it an especially potent treatment for wrinkles and hair loss.

Who is an ideal candidate for PRP?

Virtually everyone age 18 and older is considered to be a good candidate for PRP in Tijuana at The Ariel Center. 

That said, patients with the following conditions may not be good candidates for PRP therapy treatments:

  • Ongoing infection or a metastatic disease
  • Chronic blood or bleeding disorders
  • Currently attending anticoagulation therapy sessions
  • Have anemia
  • Are currently pregnant 

How does the PRP work?

The process involves a few steps. First, the blood is collected from the patient. The quantity taken is usually less than two ounces. This blood sample is then placed into a centrifuge. The centrifuge processes the blood, separating out and collecting the platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the targeted treatment areas. 

Both the blood draw and the injections are carried out in one outpatient procedure.

What is the recovery process like?

Generally speaking, the recovery period for cosmetic PRP therapy is 4 weeks. However, this recovery period doesn’t require much downtime. Patients need to avoid strenuous activity for a few days following the procedure, but they can get back to work and other normal activities almost immediately.
