PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, this treatment uses injections of the patients’ own concentrated platelets. Plasma is the liquid aspect of blood, carries the well known red and white blood cells but also contains proteins, nutrients, glucose, and antibodies. Platelets are natural cells within your body in your blood that are part of your body’s response to an injury.
They are sent to the site of an injury to help clot the blood to stop bleeding and contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors that are important to healing a wound or injury. By using these concentrated platelet cells there is likewise a concentration of growth factors that increases the healing potential of a PRP treatment as compared to other treatments.
During a treatment first blood must be drawn to extract the platelets and concentrate them, then they are combined with the remaining blood and injected directly at the site of an injury, encouraging healing and new cell growth. This treatment can be used all over the body, even helping treat difficult areas like around the mouth and lips, cheek and chin, forehead, neck, scalp, and hands.
