What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
For thePlatelet Rich Plasma therapy, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, it is then put into a special tube and is centrifuged to separate out the platelets and obtain Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This plasma is then injected to the patient.
Platelets or thrombocytes are blood components that include growth factor needed for tissue repair in our body. When a tissue is damaged in our body, thrombocytes (i.e., platelets) are accumulated into this tissue through blood circulation and start a kind of repair process. PRP application is intended to provide the target tissue with a higher number of platelets than that would be provided by the natural process. The number of platelets obtained by PRP is 2 to 4 times higher than the platelets in the blood stream. This procedure enables the repair process for the damaged tissue to start faster and stronger.
