PRP facial, with Factor V Leiden; would it be dangerous?

I really want to have a PRP facial, but I have Factor V Leiden, heterozygous . In an advertisement I've seen it said that no one with clotting issues should have one. I'm 60 years old and have never had any problems. I was tested because my father has it. Would it be dangerous?

PRP Treatment and Factor V Leiden

I have treated many patients with coumadin, plavix, aspirin without complications.  Those with factor V should have no problems with this treatment.  Best, Dr. Emer.
