Your blood contains a liquid called plasma. It also contains small solid components: red and white blood cells and platelets. The platelets play a part in blood clotting, but they also contain growth factors that are especially beneficial in healing injuries and promoting cell regeneration. PRP is plasma that’s platelet-rich, meaning it contains more platelets than what’s normally found in your blood. Dr. Yuen obtains the platelet-rich plasma through a special process called centrifugation that’s used to concentrate the growth factors until they’re five to 10 times richer than normal. Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) was originally designed to speed up your body’s natural healing process and help people, including professional athletes, recover from injuries. The many benefits and uses of this natural treatment method were soon noted, and PRP is now an effective form of regenerative medicine used in different medical fields, including aesthetics. PRP has been used for hair restoration, treating arthritis, for aiding tissue healing during some surgeries, and more.
