Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is derived from you the patient. We draw your blood at your home or office and then place your blood into a special centrifuge to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet Poor Plasma and White Blood Cells). The Platelet Rich Plasma containing monocytes and various plasma proteins are collected into a syringe. The activated platelets are then injected with in the next few minutes as a medical intervention. As the platelets organize in the clot, they release enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells and growth factors to repair damaged tissue and cause regeneration and rejuvenation.
BENEFITS of PRP: PRP is autologous (using your own blood) therefore eliminating allergy potential. PRP has been shown to have tissue regenerating effects. Other benefits include: minimal down time, safe with minimal risk, short recovery time, and no general anesthesia is required.
