The procedure for injecting Ascent is very similar to a simple steroid injection. It is quick, easy, and unlike other regenerative therapies, doesn’t require an invasive procedure. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes.
The physician will begin by cleaning the injection site with alcohol or an antiseptic solution to remove any bacteria present on the skin surface.
At the physician’s discretion, a local anesthetic or numbing agent will be used. This could be a topical agent sprayed on the skin or an injectable solution. Some physicians may also use ultrasound for guidance.
Ascent will be injected into the site of injury and the physician may ask you to flex and straighten the injected area to help spread the solution. The physician will conclude by cleaning and bandaging the injection site.
