Patients who have PRP treatments in Northern Virginia have their blood drawn in the office. It takes about 10 minutes for the blood to be spun in a tube in a centrifuge. Next the PRP is removed from the tube and divided into multiple syringes.
Once the PRP is ready, the scalp is cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Then, a device is used to numb the area and the PRP is injected.
