Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a preparation with a particularly high concentration of platelets (PLT) in a limited volume of plasma. PRP contains growth factors and bioactive proteins that regulate differentiated cells and modulate cell growth and activity: all of which are vital for tissue regeneration and the fabrication of engineered tissues. In PRP therapy, autologous PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood. In the course of PRP therapy, concentrated PRP is either injected or applied locally to improve tissue conditions and wound healing.
Advantages of PRP
It can be used for wide area of applications based on boosting our body’s natural ability to heal itself by producing autologous active substances. Therefore it can bring very effective and proven results without risk transmissible infections and very low risk of allergic reactions.
PRP Applications – Clinical Areas
1) Aesthetics skin rejuvenation, wrinkles, acne scars, hair loss, fat graft, post-skin laser treatment
2) Pressure sores, leg ulcers, burns and unhealed wounds.
3) Joint pain cartilage, ligament injury, arthritis and tendonitis.
Procedures of PRP treatment
Your physician will collect a small amount of your blood. The blood is then placed into a high speed centrifuge. The centrifuge concentrates the platelets from the blood. The concentrated platelets are then harvested and injected into the injured area or target area. Responses to treatment vary, but most patients will need one to three injections. Each set of treatments may be spaced approximately three to four weeks apart.
