Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets

As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains and releases through degranulation several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.

The popularity of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments among patients for aesthetic purposes has increased in recent years because of its long-term and permanent benefits

PRP is also used as a clinical tool for several types of medical treatments, such as nerve injury, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, cardiac muscle injury, bone repair and regeneration, plastic surgery, and oral surgery.

The therapies allow for the separation of a patient’s blood through a variety of harvesting techniques to extract a concentration of autologous platelets. These platelets when activated release adhesive glycoproteins (fibrin, fibronectin, and vitronectin) and various growth factors.

Contrary to other solutions for the skin such as Botox and Dermal Fillers, PRP is natural (non-synthetic) and will not be reabsorbed or synthesized by bacteria.
