In human blood, platelets play a critical role in wound healing, allowing the blood to clot, and stemming the wound. But platelets have a much larger role in wound healing and skin rejuvenation. Blood platelets contain fundamental protein growth factors.
What is PRP? (platelet rich plasma)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) simply takes a typical blood sample and removes the red blood cells. What is left is concentrated blood platelets, white blood cells, and plasma — platelet-rich plasma. This is now a powerful healing serum that is fueled by seven growth factors. In the body, growth factors are the messengers between cells, signaling the cells to perform their different functions. In wound healing, they initiate various healing processes.
