Benefits of PRP Regenerative Therapy

PRP Regenerative Therapy stimulates healing through injection of one’s own growth factors into affected areas.

 PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelet cells taken from the patient’s blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process.

These platelets are the center of PRP Therapy which is derived from the blood drawn from the patient’s arm. It will be put in a centrifuge and spun at a certain RPM. That forces the blood components to separate. The resulting blood will have distinct components of Red Blood Cells (RBC), Normal Plasma (PPP) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The PRP portion of the blood is then separated, and injected into the injured area. Clinical trials prove the effectiveness of PRP treatments for almost all types of chronic healing.

Injection with PRP increases the amount of  collagen.  Another benefit of PRP therapy is that it is taken from the patient’s body, so there’s no matching to be done and no risk of rejection.
