- Injection therapy with platelet-rich plasma involves our doctor’s assistant drawing blood the usual way from the vein in your arm into four to eight collection tubes.
- After that, we will centrifuge the whole blood in a special centrifuge to separate out the components in the tube in a process that takes around a quarter of an hour to complete.
- The assistant will then pipette off the blood components you will need in therapy in sterile conditions, and fill them into a syringe.
- She will then prepare this syringe together with a smaller mini-syringe for the doctor. The platelets will be activated in serum using the small syringe just before application of PRP.
- After that, the doctor will apply the sterile syringe, possibly with the help of ultrasound, depending on the target.
- Finally, we will disinfect the injection site again and apply a small patch.
- This may be followed by a brief observation period.
- We recommend that you avoid any form of strenuous activity for the first two to three days after the injection to improve the effect of the treatment.
