Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has become an innovative, non-operative tool in the Regenerative Medicine community, utilizing a person’s own blood to accelerate healing and strengthen injured regions of the body.

PRP is a concentrate of platelets and growth factors derived from whole blood. Platelets play a central role in wound repair and are rich in growth factors. When concentrated down and injected back to a specific region, it stimulates a cascade of healing that can provide long-term improvements and strengthening.

Services offered at Natural Medicine of Seattle include:

Other conditions treated:

  • Scar healing: C-sections scars, acne scars, damaged skin surfaces
  • Cosmetic Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation

What is the Process?

The procedure to obtain PRP is very straightforward and fairly quick. A regular blood draw is performed to collect your blood, which is processed in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets from your blood, creating the PRP used for your treatment. The PRP is then removed and prepared for your doctor to inject/apply. 

What are the side effects?

Side effects are minimal, especially since we’re using PRP derived from your own blood. Depending on what procedure you do, your doctor will review all the post-procedure care to get you back to your activities with very little downtime. 

When will I see results from PRP?

Each procedure will have its own number of sessions needed for maximum results. Most people notice a difference after just 1 session. These treatments do rely on your own body’s natural healing process, so rate of improvements will vary.

“I appreciate that Dr. Ikeda spends a lot of time with her patients… She looks carefully at both symptoms and test results to make a holistic healthcare plan, and then helps you triage the treatment options so you aren’t overwhelmed. I’ve experienced more relief with Dr. Ikeda in the past 6 months than I have in the past 10 years with other doctors and modalities.”
