Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated platelets and growth factors that stimulate the healing and regeneration of damaged tissue. It’s the super-charged version of traditional plasma and has proved to be an effective and natural way to treat chronic and acute pain.
Plasma is a component in blood that protects the body and promotes healing. Plasma is isolated by taking a small sample of your blood and placing it into a centrifuge to be spun at a high speed. Once the plasma has been isolated, it is then placed into a centrifuge once more to obtain the purest form of platelet rich plasma. Once it is removed from the centrifuge, the highly concentrated PRP is ready for injection. PRP is 100% natural and provides a way for your own body to heal itself.
Platelet rich plasma is a very simple and safe nonsurgical procedure that is performed by a qualified physician. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 2The special device is then centrifuged at a high speed, two separate times, to isolate the purest PRP.
Step 3Once the PRP has been isolated, it is ready to be injected into your affected site. It is carefully injected using refined techniques to ensure advanced healing and regeneration.
