What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
PRP is plasma that is combined with a high concentration of platelets. Platelets contain growth factors and other proteins that allow the growth of new, healthy tissue. Your platelets are an essential component in natural healing processes.
PRP is recommended for:
activate hair restoration
rejuvenate the skin
For joint pain, platelet-rich plasma is injected directly at the joint. This triggers a temporary inflammatory process and stimulates collagen production. It's like if you hit your skin, it usually becomes inflamed, red and hot. The same thing can happen here because we are injecting plasma and it contains growth factors.
