What is PRP?
PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets, which are tiny cell fragments in the blood which help form clots. Platelets also contain a large number of growth factors, which play an important role in the healing process.
During PRP therapy, Dr. Gul takes a small amount of blood from your arm and processes it in a centrifuge to isolate PRP. The PRP solution contains five to 10 times more growth factors than your normal blood. Then she injects the PRP into your injury site to stimulate healing.
