Transformative Treatments

What are PRP and PRF?

At VitaLab Wellness in La Jolla PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that uses a person’s blood platelets to stimulate collagen production. PRP can be used to trigger natural growth factors that your body uses to heal tissues. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is often considered next-generation PRP and uses different harvesting techniques to prioritize extracting the fibrin and concentrating its healing and immune effects. PRP can be used to address aesthetic concerns such as:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture
  • And more

Both can be especially helpful when it comes to injury.

The Treatment

Your PRP Procedure

To begin the treatment process, a small amount of your blood will be drawn from your arm. Then your blood will be placed into a machine called a centrifuge, which will spin to separate the protein-rich- plasma and/or fibrin from the rest of the elements of the blood. Platelets are then extracted, and the sample is concentrated, creating what is called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin (PRF).

Next, PRP/PRF can either be used for aesthetic outcomes or regenerative results. For aesthetic purposes, the PRP will be spread onto your face, and microneedling will be performed to help your face absorb the proteins. To execute microneedling, a special pen-like tool with many small needles on the end will be moved across the skin, creating micro-wounds. These micro-wounds stimulate the body’s natural healing response, kick-starting the creation of collagen as well. Overall, this combined procedure encourages cell turnover for tighter, smoother, fuller skin.In cases where PRP/PRF is being used for regenerative purposes, it is injected directly into the injured ligament, muscle, joint, tendon, or intravenously to promote healing.

Healing from Within

PRP Results, Recovery and Aftercare

Generally, recovery time for PRP injections is about four to six weeks, while recovery from aesthetic PRP is about one week. Temporary redness, swelling, or tenderness at the treatment site may occur. It may take several weeks to months to see full results. Repeated treatments are usually recommended for the best results. It is important to follow Dr. Oberg’s specific aftercare instructions, including using a daily moisturizer with SPF to keep the skin protected.

PRP therapy is generally considered safe because it uses your blood, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or rejection. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. These may include temporary swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site. Infection or nerve injury may occur in rare cases, but these complications are uncommon when a qualified and experienced healthcare provider administers PRP. Before undergoing PRP treatment, discussing your medical history and any concerns with your healthcare provider is important to ensure the procedure is appropriate for you.
