Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated solution of healing components. When you have an injury, no matter how small, your brain sends out signals to begin multiple healing events.
Blood rushes to the area to clot and close up the wound, while growth factors start stimulating cell turnover and helping tissues heal from underlying layers. Over time, a new matrix of tissues and collagen develops to heal the wound entirely.
Platelet-rich plasma speeds up all of these effects. The treatment involves you providing a small blood sample, which then gets processed in a machine called a centrifuge.
As the centrifuge rapidly spins your blood, powerful growth factors and tissue-generating cells separate into a concentrated solution. This solution — your PRP — is then ready for injection into damaged or injured tissues to promote healing.
