Platelet Rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is a viable and intact concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma.

 

PLATELET RICH PLASMA DEFINED?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concetrated source of autologous platalets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.

 

BLOOD-DERIVED GROWTH FACTORS

The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors. PRP utilizes a leading-edge patented technology specifically designed. With a simple, quick and advantageous process, Dr. Smiley is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich plasma.

  1. The practitioner draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test.

  2. The practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from other components of the blood.

  3. The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least 8 essential growth factors and signaling proteins.

Platelet-rich plasma is a technology that deploys aspects of blood based biochemistry. Because all constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from the patient (autologous in origin) there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless, before any treatment disclose all medications you are taking (including herbs) to Dr. Smiley.
