Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment
With recent advancements in both the field of medicine and technology, there are unique ways to capture the body’s own ability to heal itself and magnify that effect 1000x fold. That is the concept behind platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments. PRP is harvested from a patient’s blood. Blood is drawn from the patient and is concentrated using sophisticated centrifuges. The goal is to obtain a high yield of one specific component found in blood plasma (the liquid part of blood) called platelets. The main function of platelets is to help form blood clots; however, these microscopic cell fragments play critical role in the inflammatory and thus the healing process. That is due to the various enzymes, chemicals, and factors that are contained within the platelets.
