Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a volume of plasma that has a platelet concentration containing huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including the source of hematopoietic stem cells and growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the wound healing process.
To prepare PRP, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient- because PRP is developed from autologous blood, it is inherently safe and is free from transmissible diseases. In order to separate and concentrate the growth factors and proteins, the donated blood will be placed in a specially designed centrifuge. As the source of hemopoetic stem cells, application of the PRP will help seal the tissues and enhance the healing process.
