What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and what are PRP injections?

This therapy uses injections of a concentration from patients’ own platelets in order to accelerate healing. The process starts with taking blood, running it through machines that separate out any damaged red cells for disposal while promoting new healthy growing skin.

How Do Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections work by utilizing the body's natural healing mechanisms to stimulate new tissue growth and collagen production. PRP is a concentrated preparation of platelets, which are blood cells that play a crucial role in clotting and wound healing. When PRP is injected into specific areas of the skin, it releases a cascade of growth factors that trigger cellular regeneration and collagen synthesis.
