Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Body and Skin Therapy
What can PRP Therapy Do For You?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood sample that contains high levels of platelets, a critical component of the wound healing process.
Platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair.
How is PRP Made?
Preparation of PRP is a simple procedure that can be performed in an office or outpatient setting. The clinician draws a small volume of your blood at the time of treatment. The blood is placed in a specialized centrifuge that spins and automatically separates the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma is then further centrifuged to concentrate the autologous platelets and hence your natural growth factors. The PRP is then available for your clinician to use as needed. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and adds no extra time to the procedure.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated sample of your own blood composed primarily of high levels of platelets. Platelets are a critical component of the wound healing process. Importantly, platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair. Harvest PRP delivers a concentration of platelets and growth factors that is roughly 4-6 times greater than that found in whole blood.
What are Growth Factors?
Growth factors are necessary to initiate tissue repair and regeneration at the wound site. Growth factors derived from platelets are responsible for soft tissue repair, bone regeneration, development of new blood vessels, and stimulation of the wound healing process. The highly concentrated level of growth factors found in Harvest PRP may optimize conditions for healing.
Am I a Candidate for PRP?
The use of PRP is considered by many to be a “new frontier” of regenerative therapy. Since clinical studies have shown that PRP can be used in many types of procedures for a wide range of patients, you should discuss your specific treatment with your doctor.
