What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a simple procedure done here in our office using the patient’s own blood. We extract the component of blood that is rich in platelets and enzymes and carefully inject it back into specific areas of the body over the course of 30-45 mins.
When injected back into the skin, PRP releases a large dose of bioactive proteins (growth factor) which are responsible for attracting macrophages, mesenchymal stem cells, and osteoblasts. These promote the removal of necrotic tissue and enhance follicle rejuvenation, tissue regeneration and collagen repair.
PRP has proven its effectiveness throughout many medical specialties. Including:
- Sports medicine
- Dental implants & sinus elevations
- Dermatology (chronic would healing)
- Cosmetic surgery
