PRP is produced from a person's own blood. It is a concentration of one type of cell, known as platelets, which circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain many factors that are essential for the cell recruitment, multiplication and specialization that are required for healing. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the blood into its many components. Platelet rich plasma can then be collected and treated before it is delivered to an injured area of bone or soft tissue, such as a tendon or ligament. PRP is given to patients through an injection or PRP Machine.
Offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapies for your practice is a natural progression of services needed for a successful aesthetic practice as the popularity of these procedures has skyrocketed. Reimbursement for aesthetic applications average $1,000 per treatment and can easily be incorporated with your other aesthetic offerings. The cost to incorporate PRP within your practice is relatively small while the return on investment is as little as (3.5) patients total. Patient satisfaction concerning this new procedure is very high because of the results received. PRP cell therapies repairs and regenerates damaged skin of all ages do to its biological mechanism of action and attraction of stem cells in repairing soft tissues. PRP unlocks the biological potential for healing of skin tissues and is an effective cellular therapy for a number of aesthetic conditions.

PRP procedures allow for blood platelets from a patient to be concentrated in such a manner that by re-introduction to the body certain biological activities take place that allows for repair of damaged tissues. Autologous platelets when activated release concentrated growth factors in the form of glycoproteins. These cytokines and growth factors that are activated and released during degranulation include:
A.A.O.P.M.'s Platelet Rich Plasma Training will prepare you for what is needed to create these essential healing factors and allow for precise and highly reproducible separation of blood components. Platelet Rich Plasma is an effective cellular therapy for stem cell migration, progenitor cells that can be converted to soft tissue (tissue genesis), and signal proteins to modulate the repair and regeneration process. Regeneration and repair occurs within (10) days but the true results are apparent within 4-5 weeks after the injections. The results to local tissue repair and growth are permanent and does not get synthesized and reabsorbed by bacteria like other aesthetic treatments such as Botox© and dermal fillers that has a limited life span. All areas of the face and neck can be enhanced using PRP which includes the following:
Attendees during the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) training will receive didactic on the various FDA approved spin methods, advantages of dual spin vs. single spin, and a full understanding of the biological mechanism of action for these procedures. Other therapies such as the use of PRP in alopecia treatments and the pain management/orthopedic uses for PRP will be reviewed and protocols given for:
Patient selection, indications for use, different forms of PRP, and contraindications for the use of PRP will be given as well as hands-on training through demonstrations on live patients.
