What is PRP?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma. Since the autologous platelet-rich plasma is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors. The treatment utilizes a leading-edge, patented technology that is specifically designed. With a simple, quick, and advantageous process, your platelet-rich plasma professional is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma.

PRP Knowledge

The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors and signaling proteins. Because all constitutes retrieved in platelet-rich plasma are exclusively from the patient (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of intolerance. Most indications for the treatment require three treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart. Improvement may be seen as early as 3 weeks and can take 3 months for collagen regeneration and other growth factor effects or longer. Some may require less treatment to see improvement, others may require more treatments. After a series of treatments results may last up to 12 to 18 months. To maintain results treatment is recommended every 9 to 12 months.

Platelet-rich plasma can be used with micro-needling only or be injected in the areas of need. Treatment involves collecting your blood then injecting the isolated PRP into the treatment area.

How does a provider harvest PRP?

PRP Step 1: Utilizing a specialized blood collection tube from the PRP Treatment kit, a practitioner draws a small amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test.

PRP Step 2: The tube is then placed into a centrifuge which spins the blood at a very high speed, causing the platelets to separate from the other components of the blood.

PRP Step 3: Once the platelets are concentrated into the plasma they can be applied to the patient. Activation causes platelets to release essential growth factors and signaling proteins, which are responsible for the wound-healing process.
