PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma, is a natural component derived from the human blood. It has a high concentration of growth factors, giving it the ability to encourage bodily healing and growth. Growth factors are the components responsible for your body’s natural healing processes. When you’re bruised or injured, the growth factors rush to the injured site to promote healing.
PRP therapy is a procedure wherein a small sample of your blood is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRPs and growth factors. The PRP solution is drawn into injections and delivered into the targeted areas of your body. PRP Injections can be used for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes, i.e., they can improve your cosmetic appearance and minimize the pain from injuries and chronic conditions.
