You may have heard about famous stuntpersons and athletes getting PRP injection treatments in Melbourne for quick healing of severe wounds. PRP injections are the latest development for treating ligamental, muscular and joint wounds. These shots, which are based on your own blood, are increasingly being used to treat sports injuries and to help wounds heal at a faster rate after surgery. Some doctors even use it as a cosmetic procedure to target signs of ageing, such as wrinkles.
Our body’s natural blood platelets make our blood clot, stopping our cuts and wounds from bleeding excessively and promoting healing. When these cells are injected inside any targeted area of your body, they break down and release compounds which help your cells to repair themselves and grow quickly. Externally, this may come off as your wounds healing quickly.
This is a new and effective shot made using this property of our red blood cells to heal wounds and medical conditions like arthritis quickly.

PRP injections Melbourne are composed of the platelet-rich plasma cells found in the human body. To collect these plasma cells, the doctor draws blood from your body. The doctor then uses a machine to separate these platelet-rich plasma cells from the rest of your blood cells.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma that originates in the red blood cells found in the human body.
Consult your doctor to know the best option for your condition before making an informed decision.

PRP therapies work differently for each and every one. The results of your PRP injection therapy will depend on the underlying disease and the treatment will depend on several factors like your medical history and health condition. It also depends on how well PRP injections will respond to you and how long will you be needing the treatment.
The results of PRP injections are permanent. These shots will heal your wounds completely. But it can not prevent any future injury or health conditions. You may get medical conditions like arthritis several years after you get PRP injections.
You can start losing hair much later after getting PRP injections or you can get injured again and you may need to return for pop injection treatments again. We can not predict whether you’ll need to come back for further treatment as time goes on. Sometimes patients do have to come back months or years later for further treatment; sometimes they do not.
When the PRP arrives at the site of the injury, the platelets unleash the growth factors. These growth factors cause a regenerative inflammation around the area of the injury, thus it speeds up the healing. The result is restored ligaments and tendons as well as stronger, more resilient cartilage. In other words, you recover from injuries and get a healthy body.
Yes, the PRP therapy responds differently for everyone but in the end, it gives effective results so all in all, PRP injection treatments are well worth the hype.
All cosmetic treatments pose some risks. This is also the case with PRP injection treatments Melbourne.
Research has shown that in extremely rare cases, people who opted for this treatment may experience symptoms like :
However, the researchers noted that these were non-specific and no more significant than the side effects of other injections and can be easily remedied. No permanent damage is caused to any part of your body after getting PRP injections Melbourne.
PRP injections are painful cosmetic procedures. It is non-surgical and minimally invasive. So, the actual pain is associated with how the PRP shots work internally for you.
You may feel more pain at first since PRP is causing swelling in the area that was already sore and wounded. But the swelling is essential. It is needed for the blood cells to start helping you heal the treatment sight effectively and completely in a short time.
Platelets release many chemicals that summon or call other reparative cells to the area of injury. When the platelets release their chemicals, it causes an inflammatory response. This inflammation is also why PRP injection treatments are painful while the injection is working in the wounded site. PRP injection treatments into the tendons, muscles, and ligaments will hurt more than other parts of your body.
Generally, the normal time for recovery after a single session of PRP injection treatment in Melbourne is about 4 – 6 weeks. The actual time of recovery depends from person to person depending on the extent of their injury, their age, and the response of the treatment to their medical conditions.
Particularly, lethal injuries in joint portions of your body need about 6 weeks to get over a single session of PRP injections.
For example, a person getting PRP injection treatment having low haemoglobin or conditions such as anaemia will heal much slower than a healthy person. A healthy person can bounce back from the PRP injections as soon as 4 weeks.
The price for getting PRP injection treatment varies depending on the wounded areas you are getting treated or the medical condition you are getting treated for. The number of PRP injection sessions you need and the response of your body to the therapy are also essential in determining the total cost. A customized treatment plan will be created when you opt for a consultation with our PRP injection specialist that will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Typically, insurance does not cover the cost of aesthetic treatments. But in cases where you have to get cosmetic treatment for medical reasons, on the recommendation of a doctor, some insurance companies may cover the cost of the PRP shots.
PRP injections in Melbourne do not work like pain-killer medications or skin-numbing anaesthetic creams. It can not mask your sensation of pain, but it will heal the wounds so it does not cause you pain anymore.
When PRP treatment has been effective and helpful in treating your wounds, you will notice a difference in your overall pain level and function.
Most patients will see an increase in their overall pain levels initially after getting the injections, but as the platelet starts working and the healing process is carried out, symptoms of the wound, as well as the pain, are expected to resolve gradually over the course of 4 to 6 weeks on average. You will be able to function better as the wound heals.
This is the basic theory. But the actual effect of the treatment depends on the patient’s overall level of health, age, diet, and activity levels. For some patients, more than a few sessions is essential.
