About Platelet Rich Plasma (or PRP)
Plasma is a part of your blood that is rich in platelets and has special proteins that both help the blood to clot and, significantly are vital for cell growth and healing. Platelets release small molecules which regulate tissue healing and stimulates the production of collagen.
How do you collect the PRP?
PRP is a part of you blood. For us to be able to use this, we start by drawing a small blood sample from your arm. This will be performed by one of our experienced and trained RNs, or one of the physicians. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge for 5 minutes which separates the red blood cells from the plasma. We then draw off the plasma to use for your treatment.
