Overview

PRP is the process of taking the patient’s own blood and purifying and separating it into a healing liquid. This is then put into a syringe and injected into the treatment site. Early studies have shown that PRP help stimulate hair growth and aid in wound healing.

History of PRP

PRP was first developed in the 1970s and first used in Italy in 1987 in an open heart surgery procedure. PRP therapy began gaining popularity in the mid 1990s. It has since been applied to many different medical fields such as cosmetic surgery, dentistry, sports medicine and pain management.

How It Works?

A small vial of blood is taken from your arm – less than that is normally taken for routine blood tests. The blood is then placed in a vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and plasma. The process concentrates the platelet count to about 4X normal. It is this platelet-rich plasma that is then activated and injected into the skin – or applied topically in a surface regeneration action.
