Platelet Rich Plasma for Aesthetics is organized by Empire Medical Training (EMT), Inc and will be held on Dec 09, 2019 at Le Meridien Dallas by the Galleria, Dallas, Texas, United States of America.

Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Description: The popularity of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments among patients for aesthetic purposes has exploded in recent years as patients are now realizing the long-term and permanent benefits of this procedure. With the average treatment cost of $600 - $1,800 per patient depending upon indications aesthetically or medically, it allows for the physician to realize additional cash revenues within their practice with little or no capital expenditure. Empire Medical's Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Training is the perfect complement to other aesthetic injectible procedures (i.e. Botox/Dermal Fillers) and can be easily incorporated into any type of medical or aesthetic practice. PRP therapies allow for the separation of a patient’s blood through a variety of harvesting techniques to extract a concentration of autologous platelets (2.5x – 9.0x). These platelets when activated release adhesive glycoproteins (fibrin, fibronectin, and vitronectin) and various growth factors forming a fibrin mesh under the tissue. Program Overview: The Platelet Rich Plasma course will review all of the indications for the use of PRP for all aesthetic, medical, pain management, and alopecia indications. This evidence-based course allows you to understand and fully integrate this popular procedure within your practice. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to: • Identify appropriate candidates for nPlatelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections based on medical and/or aesthetic need determined by evidence-based protocols to optimize outcomes. • Describe the various standards of care to safely administer secondary uses of Autologous PRP injections for medical pain management. • Apply proper injection technique of PRP to safely administer the product, minimize complications and provide optimal patient outcomes.
