IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA SAFE?

For over twenty years, PRP has been used in many different fields of medicine1. Research and clinical data show PRP derived from the patient's own blood is safe, with minimal risk of adverse reactions or complications.2,3 Because the platelets are produced from your own blood, there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission. As with any injection into the body, there is a small risk of infection, however it is very rare.
