Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a component of blood that contains special factors and proteins to support cellular growth and blood clotting. A sample of your own blood is taken and spun to isolate the concentrated plasma. Research suggests that PRP injections can successfully treat pain by delivering special factors to intensify the body's natural healing process. PRP is also used in aesthetic procedures to promote faster healing and boost collagen more effectively after microneedling treatments. Platelet rich plasma is even beneficial to those experiencing mild to moderate hair loss desiring thicker hair.
