Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a collection of platelets, proteins and growth factors known to accelerate healing. Derived from the patient’s own blood, these substances optimize our healing potential and tissue regeneration.
Platelets contain numerous growth and healing factors which initiate and accelerate wound healing. They release additional chemical signals that attract stem cells to the area and stimulate them to begin the rebuilding process. By concentrating platelets as we do when PRP therapy is performed, these beneficial effects are dramatically increased.
This innovative technology is available in our office to maximize the results of your surgical procedure.
This technology may be used to improve:
- Outcomes in previous operated sites
- Healing in medically compromised patients
- Results from bone grafting
- Closure of wounds or other tissue defects
