Normally platelets work by inducing the healing process in an injury. Lack of blood flow or aged tissue stop optimal healing and restoring of that tissue.
Now, because of it’s high concentration of platelets, PRP kickstarts the stalled healing mechanism, or aging process.
The PRP substance is made of plasma (the colorless fluid found in blood after it’s centrifuged) and an enhanced platelet rich count. Platelets that usually help your body heal, after being centrifuged increase in potency or “growth factor”.
The PRP substance is injected into the wounded, damaged or aged area in order to stimulate the body’s healing process, this results in faster healing and a fresh apperance (in aesthetic procedures).
The idea is that by using your body’s own healing mechanismfocused in one area, it will accelerate the restoration process.
A specific procedure is used to extract your own blood, process it in a specialized kit, centrifuge it and use this new PRP substance to stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
