Why PRP is so beneficial

How PRP Works?
To prepare PRP, a small amount of blood is taken from your arm with a special kit similar to a normal blood test. It is then placed in a special centrifugation machine that separates the platelets from the blood in order to be extracted in a concentrated form called PRP. The activated PRP containing healing growth factors is injected to the specific area and act as signals to instruct your tissue to multiply and regenerate new blood vessels. This brings fresh oxygen along with other growth factors to replace old and damaged cells. It stimulates and speed up the healing process.
