What role does PRP have in regenerative medicine?2023-09-11T14:53:05-07:00

As natural components of your blood, platelets have two jobs to perform: they promote blood clotting to stop bleeding and accelerate healing.

When tissues in your body are injured, platelets naturally travel to the area and release growth factors. Then the growth factors:

  • Activate the healing process
  • Regulate inflammation
  • Recruit stem cells to the area
  • Support new cell growth
  • Stimulate new blood vessel growth
  • Prevent degeneration in healthy tissues

Your Restore Health provider makes your platelet-rich plasma or PRP treatment in the office by drawing a sample of your blood and processing it to separate the platelets from the other blood cells.

Then your provider draws the platelets and a small amount of plasma (the liquid part of your blood) into a syringe and injects the concentrated platelets, using real-time imaging to inject them into the injured tissues.
