What is PRP?

PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma. The blood has a cell called platelet. These tiny cells are involved in healing and blood clot formation, and contain plenty of growth factors necessary for wound healing and repair. When separated by centrifugation, the platelets remain suspended in plasma and this plasma is called Platelet Rich Plasma.

There are different methods to obtain PRP. The blood is obtained by venepuncture under sterile conditions, just like drawing the blood for a blood test. Then, the blood is placed in a special kit to which anticoagulants are added. This is then centrifuged till the platelet rich plasma separates from the cells. It is then drawn into the syringes for treatment. During the whole process, there are two very important considerations. One, all the steps need to maintain sterility to prevent any chance of infections. Two, there is no addition or mixing of any actives, which makes this a very safe treatment.
