Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your own blood which contains healing factors, such as white blood cells and bioactive proteins called growth factors. These cells are vital for tissue regeneration and repair.

Platelets were once thought of being responsible only for clotting but have been scientifically proven to be a reservoir of these vital healing components. With advanced techniques, we can concentrate these regenerative healing cells in a simple outpatient setting.
