PRP (“Platelet Rich Plasma”) is nothing but autologous blood with concentrations of platelets above baseline levels and contain at least seven growth factors. Normal blood contains only 6% platelets. However, in PRP, there is a concentration of 94% platelets, which translates to a powerful growth factor “cocktail” with a variety of growth factors and cytokines. This stimulates cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing. And since the platelets come from the patient’s own blood, there is absolutely no possibility of infection or other side effects. The only precaution you need to take is to stop any anti-inflammatory medications while administering PRP.
