What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is isolated from whole blood that is preferentially enriched for platelets. Platelets not only play an important role in hemostasis and thrombosis but also the natural reservoirs for growth factors. The high concentration of growth factors released by platelets may modulate inflammatory response, control infection, accelerate wound healing and promote tissue regeneration.
Where does PRP come from?
PRP comes from your own body. To proceed a PRP preparation, 10 mL of venous blood must first be drawn from you. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased by the process of centrifugation. Gently mix the increased concentration of platelets with remaining plasma while other cells are separated by our separation gel. Within 10 minutes, your PRP is ready for injection.
