Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, platelet rich plasma contains and releases through degranulation several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate the healing of bone and soft tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma is produced from a person’s own blood. It is a concentration of one type of cell, known as platelets, which circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma of the blood contain essential factors for the cell recruitment, multiplication and specialization required for healing.
