Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a therapy that involves using a patient's own blood, which is processed to concentrate the platelets and growth factors, and then injected into a specific area of the body to promote healing and tissue regeneration.
Platelets are small, disk-shaped blood cells that play a crucial role in the body's clotting process. They are also rich in growth factors, which are proteins that help to stimulate cell growth and tissue repair.
To create PRP, a small amount of the patient's blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and growth factors. The resulting plasma, which contains a higher concentration of platelets than normal blood, is then injected into the affected area.
PRP is great for Skin rejuvenation: PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and sun damage.
It's also great for Hair restoration: PRP injections can be used to stimulate hair growth in patients with hair loss.
