Platelet Rich Plasma "PRP"
Platelet Rich Plasma is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
How does Platelet Rich Plasma work?
The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors. PRP utilizes a leading-edge patented technology specifically designed. With a simple, quick and advantageous process, your PRP professional is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma.
1. The practitioner draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test.
2. The practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
3. The platelet rich plasma is activated to release at least 8 essential growth factors and signaling proteins. Platelet rich plasma is a technology that deploys aspects of blood based biochemistry. Because all constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from the patient (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Always disclose all medication you are taking with your doctor.
