Platelet Rich Plasma better known as PRP is the latest cutting edge, non-invasive treatment. The growth factors in PRP we acquire from your blood can activate cells in the body, healing and regenerating new connective tissue, capillaries and collagen in the skin. In addition, the platelets initiate hemostasis (the stopping of bleeding) and balance the inflammatory response which is necessary during the healing process.
How it Works
The provider draws blood from the patient, the blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins for 5 to 10 minutes to separate the growth factors in the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections promote faster healing and transferring these growth-factor proteins to other areas of the body essentially helping any damaged area. PRP has the ability to increase connective tissue regeneration, collagen formation, skin thickness, and reduce inflammation quickly.
