How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP is made from a person’s own blood (just 2-4 tablespoons) by a special FDA-approved machine located in the PRP Regeneration Specialists office. The process concentrates the platelets naturally found in the blood sample. The highly-concentrated plasma contains growth factors and cytokines that work to accelerate and enhance the body’s normal healing process. This large amount of growth factors are injected and released at the site of injury or desired location for rejuvenation. These concentrated platelets induce an inflammatory response to initiate healing.
For joint or tendon injuries, the platelets are able to restore tendons and ligamentous proteins as well as strengthen cartilage. For skin and hair rejuvenation, the platelets can stimulate collagen and create new cell growth in the treated area.
