PRP therapy involves taking a person’s blood and then separating the platelet rich part from that blood sample with the help of a specialized centrifuge. There are various types of centrifuges which produce different quality PRP.

So, it’s a detrimental factor that high quality centrifuge is used to prepare a PRP sample which is capable of full regenerative potential. A good quality PRP sample contains high numbers of platelets and growth factors which play pivotal role in the regeneration.

The prepared PRP is then injected into the targeted area of the body where it stimulates healing and regenerative process with the help of growth factors and cytokines.
