What is PRP treatment for Eczema?
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP therapy has been used to treat a number of conditions for about forty years. However, it has not been used for many aesthetic purposes despite its proven ability to quickly heal wounds and promote growth factor release, but this is all about to change. During this process, a patient’s own blood is drawn, typically from their arm, and is placed into a machine that works to separate the blood into three different layers. Then the platelet-rich plasma is drawn into a syringe and injected in the problem area of a person’s body. This treatment is considered natural since it is the patient’s own blood that promotes healing and growth.
How it works?
PRP injections are a therapeutic practice where biological cells and tissues are used rather than their replacements. The Platelet-rich plasma that is used is cell-free and has a concentrated level of platelets that go above the baseline number. This practice became increasingly popular when dealing with and treating sports-related injuries since the dealing time was so much faster than other treatment options.
Eczema is classified as the inflammation of the skin that causes itchy, discolored, and dry patches. Some patients experience small bumps that leak fluid and become crusty all over. While others have scaly or raw skin that becomes red and an itchy rash breaks out after they come in contact with something in particular. There are many different forms and causes of this condition, which is why it can be difficult for your eczema doctor to figure out the right treatment immediately. Although atopic dermatitis is the most common type of Eczema, the same treatment doesn’t work for everyone with it. Due to the fact that there are limited options available to help relieve the pain of this condition, many patients are looking for new ways to get comfort. PRP therapy may require a number of sessions to get the results you are looking for. During the procedure, your doctor will draw a sample of blood and put it into a centrifuge. After about ten minutes in the device, the PRP injections will be prepared and injected into the problem areas of your skin, wherever your Eczema is most apparent. Each of the treatments can cost between $1.500-$3.500 depending on a number of factors. Make sure you speak with your provider at your consultation about the number of treatments they think you’ll need.
