Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has gained a great deal of attention in recent years, but what exactly does platelet rich plasma therapy do?
Platelet Rich Plasma is relatively simple to obtain and the entire process can be done in-office in less than a half-hour. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets – which comprise just a tiny percentage of the blood – from red and white blood cells. By isolating the platelets, you’re able to produce a highly-concentrated plasma. This is then injected into the area of skin being treated, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. Since platelet rich plasma is produced from the patient’s own blood, it is the ultimate in “natural” healing.
