PRP / PRGF FAQs
IS PRGF THERAPY SAFE? ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Because PRGF employs your own blood, you have a very low risk for an allergic reaction or any other side effects. However, PRGF does involve the use of needles and side effects are possible. It is possible – but very rare – to have a reaction to the solution or the anesthetic agent used.
Typically the only side effect is some minor pain or bruising at the site of the injection site which should resolve in a few days or less. At your consultation, your health provider will review the risks and benefits with you. You will be assessed if you are a candidate for this procedure.
HOW LONG DOES PRP / PRGF TAKE?
The appointment and process will take 45-60 minutes to complete. There are a few forms to complete prior to your infusion as well as a quick medical assessment.
IS PRP / PRGF PAINFUL?
We always use numbing cream and if necessary, a local injectable anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
WILL I NEED MORE THAN 1 PRP / PRGF TREATMENT?
While patients see dramatic benefits from a single PRP / PRGF procedure, depending on the treatment, you may benefit from multiple sessions.
ARE DISCOUNTS AVAILBLE?
Yes! Discounts are available when you purchase a multi-treatment package.
