Before PRP Treatment
Prior to the treatment, there are several things you should do to maximise the quality of the PRP taken from your blood. For at least a week prior to the treatment, you shouldn’t smoke, drink alcohol or caffeine, or eat particularly fatty foods. It is also recommended that you take advantage of the hyperbaric chamber facilities available at Malvern Health and Fitness (9822 7951).
The use of hyperbaric chambers has been shown to increase the number of stem cells in the blood and enhance the effects of PRP.
Anticoagulant medications (“blood thinners”) such as Warfarin, Clopidogrel and Aspirin should generally not be taken during the course of your treatment. Discuss this with your doctor before ceasing any medications.
