Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment where a doctor takes a small amount of your blood, spins it in a machine to separate out the healing parts called platelets, and then injects or applies them to the area that needs to heal.
Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that help with clotting and healing. They contain special proteins and growth factors that can help your body repair damaged tissues and reduce inflammation.
By concentrating these platelets and their healing properties into a solution, doctors can use PRP therapy to speed up the healing process and promote tissue regeneration. It can be used to help with sports injuries, joint pain, skin conditions, and even in cosmetic procedures for rejuvenation or hair loss.
