Platelets are known for their role in clotting when the skin is damaged, and blood is exposed. Plasma also contains hundreds of proteins called "growth factors," which are crucial to speed the body's healing process. By extracting platelets from our own blood and injecting them in a concentrated form to the injured area, we can stimulate our own body's healing response and begin to rebuild tissue.
PRP injections are simple and can be done in a physician's office. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to withdraw the blood, separate the different types of blood cells, and inject the platelet-rich portion into the injured area. Sometimes, an activating agent may be added to the blood to stimulate quicker platelet response to jumpstart the healing process. Once the PRP is injected, the platelets should help your body heal by clotting at the areas of distress to begin reparations and new tissue growth.
