Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that contains a concentrated source of autologous platelets. Growth factors and/or cytokines present in PRP include:
When activated, platelets release adhesive glycoproteins and various growth factors. These proteins and growth factors interact with present cells residing in tissue, such as skin fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and osteoblasts.
Once these proteins and growth factors bind to cellular receptors, they activate intercellular events, which
help mediate:Regeneration occurs within the tissues and fibrils ensues. Growth and repair continue for up to one month after these injections. The result is new, healthy tissue(s) that is permanent.
