The first step in the process is to draw 30 to 60 ml of blood from a large vein in the arm. The second step is to spin the blood in the centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. The part of the body to be treated is anesthesized and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected. The entire process will take about 30 to 45 minutes. Before and After the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) procedureaspirin and any non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications should be avoided 7 days before and 14 days after the injection. These medications cause platelets to not react positively to the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. For the same reasons, alcohol and tobacco is also to be discouraged. You can resume normal activity but you should avoid strenuous activities. Some pain and sometimes bruising in the area of injection is normal and should go away within 24 to 48 hours.
