At Empire Medical Training we create standards for platelet rich plasma (PRP) protocols, preparations and techniques that serve the needs and interests of patients, providing the best outcomes.
We have developed guidelines to assist Physicians and Aestheticians in performing safe therapies, promote patient education, encourage robust clinical research and begin to define the scope and anticipated effects of these procedures.
Platelet Rich Plasma has been used for almost 20 years in dental medicine and is also playing a prominent role in Aesthetics, Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, where the procedure is widely used among professional athletes to accelerate the natural healing process after injuries.
In recent years, PRP have been used in the Aesthetic field, as an accelerator of the healing process. Aiding in aesthetic procedures like Laser Resurfacing & Skin Rejuvenation.
Great results have been shown in the Aesthetic aspect such as:
- Crinkling skin around the eyes.
- Cheeks and mid face.
- Chest and décolletage.
- Back of hands and arms.
- Most body areas.
- Stimulates hair growth on scalp.
Because the goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives.
The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
There is an extensive history in the use of PRP for pain management dating back to 1987 for cardiac surgery. Since then, PRP has also been used by other specialists in dentistry, cosmetics, and burn surgery. PRP has been used over the past ten years in the musculoskeletal field, with publications by orthopedic surgeons—including randomized clinical trials in repairing:
- Tennis elbow.
- Achilles tendon.
- Plantar fasciitis.
- Anterior cruciate ligament.
- Rotator cuff.
- Lower back pain.
