What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that is enriched with platelets. From concentrated form, the blood plasma undergoes two intensive cleaning stages to remove the platelet-rich plasma of white blood cells, from the platelet-poor plasma of red blood cells. Once the cleaning process is complete, the PRP is left with the positive healing proteins that stimulate natural growth factors that boost restoration of cartilage, soft tissue repair, and bone redevelopment.
Platelet-rich plasma is collected through a regular blood sample taken from the intended client. By utilizing the client’s own blood cells, known as platelets, that undergoes a meticulous cleaning process prior to introduction back into the affected area(s). Once injected into the body, the platelet-rich plasma boosts the body’s natural healing and begins the rapid process to recovery. This non-surgical treatment is extremely effectively since the body will not reject its own genetic cells.
