PRP Injection Procedure

PRP Injection Procedure

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are getting famous for different circumstances, from sports wounds to going bald/hair loss problems. The treatment utilizes a patient’s own platelets to speed up recuperating in a particular region. A variety of ailments, including musculoskeletal discomfort and injuries as well as cosmetic operations, can be treated with PRP injections.

Platelets, a part of blood that plays a vital role in healing the body, and plasma, the liquid portion of blood, make up platelet-rich plasma. Although platelets are known for their ability to clot, they also contain growth factors that can stimulate cell division and promote tissue healing or recovery in the treated area. In other words, platelet-rich plasma is blood that has more platelets than usual.

A blood sample is taken from the patient and placed into a centrifuge isolating the platelets from other blood components and concentrating them inside the plasma. This creates platelet-rich plasma.
