04 Mar CASE STUDY
This is a 70 male patient 24 days post CRP treatment for 2nd degree grease burns. He was referred for treatment 10 days after being burned. An initial session of CRP was done on 1-31-12 then a second treatment on 2-7-12. These are his results 24 days later. The patient is very active, plays tennis and is an oil painter. Today, 24 days post treatment, he admits that he played tennis and has been painting the past week
What is important in the initial photo is that the patient was facing a “burn contracture” of the right hand and in the second photo note the black area at the tip of his finger demonstrating “vascular compromise” before and after.
The left thumb healing in the last photo speaks for itself. Note the lack of scaring on the thumb and in all the treated areas.
We use PRP effectively for burns and wounds because PRP contains increased levels of white blood cells WBC’s that help fight infection.
CRP does not contain any WBC, RBC or Platelets, just growth factors, cytokines and plasma proteins.
I was curious to see the effectiveness of proteins on serious burns and this case demonstrates the regenerative healing of growth factor therapy and CRP.
The best way to evaluate a patient is to arrange a personal, in-depth consultation. However, this is impossible for many patients who fly in from other parts of the country or world. For this reason we have developed the remote consultation package, which is an acceptable alternative to the in-person personal consult.
Once your photos and questionnaire are reviewed, we will telephone you to discuss your questions or concerns regarding the procedure. You will also be given a suggested treatment plan and the costs involved. Click here for more complete information on our free on-line hair restoration consultation process.
