Is PRP safe?

Mild injection site bruising, swelling, or redness can occur but usually resolves after 3-7 days following the procedure. Other risks include infection and pain at injection sites. 
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves the injection of high concentrations of Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) directly into the dermis. The PDGF is a stimulator of collagen synthesis that, when applied, improves the appearance of flaccid, dehydrated, and aged skin. It is currently also used to treat androgenetic alopecia due to its ability to promote hair growth.  
The procedure is simple and consists of 3 steps where a small portion of the patient's blood is drawn, followed by placing the blood in a centrifuge for a few minutes to separate fibrin and platelets from blood cells. Finally, the fibrin and platelets are injected into the area to be treated.
