Understanding the Process
Platelets are the components of your blood that are best known for blood clotting. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called Growth Factors and Cytokines, which are necessary in the healing process.
Stem cells are found throughout the entire body and play a key role in repairing damaged tissue.
The Platelets’ growth factors and signaling cytokines help stimulate stem cells, trigger the healing cascade, restore new blood growth, begin collagen synthesis, and aid in new cell growth and new tissue regeneration.
PRP Treatment is the separation of those platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood, which results in high concentration of the platelets; hence, Platelet Rich Plasma.
The theory behind Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is to promote the repair of various structures by harvesting concentrated blood components and injecting them into damaged structures.
The platelets act as a scaffold, and various growth factors and cytokines attract stem cells to the area and differentiate into various cell types.
