What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a medical treatment that utilizes a patient’s own blood to promote healing and rejuvenation in various areas of the body.


  • Natural Healing: PRP harnesses the body’s own healing mechanisms, making it a safe and natural treatment option.

  • Minimal Risk: Because PRP uses the patient’s own blood, the risk of allergic reaction or rejection is minimal.

  • Versatile: PRP therapy has a wide range of applications, from cosmetic to medical, offering potential benefits across different specialties.


  1. Blood Collection: The PRP procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the patient, typically from the arm. The amount of blood drawn is relatively small, similar to a standard blood test.

  2. Centrifugation: The collected blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine, which spins at high speeds to separate the blood components. This process separates the red blood cells, plasma, and platelets.

  3. Isolation of Platelets: After centrifugation, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted. PRP contains a higher concentration of platelets than normal blood, along with growth factors and other proteins that aid in tissue repair and regeneration.

  4. Injection or Application: The PRP is then injected or applied topically to the targeted area. This could be joints (for orthopedic purposes), skin (for cosmetic rejuvenation), scalp (for hair restoration), or other areas requiring tissue repair.


  • Cosmetic Use: PRP is often used in aesthetic medicine to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and promote collagen production. It can be applied via microneedling or injected directly into areas needing rejuvenation.

  • Orthopedic Use: PRP is utilized in sports medicine and orthopedics to treat tendon injuries (such as tennis elbow or Achilles tendonitis), osteoarthritis, and other musculoskeletal conditions. It’s believed to accelerate healing and reduce inflammation.

  • Hair Restoration: PRP injections can stimulate hair follicles, promoting hair growth in individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning.

Is PRP Therapy safe?

  • PRP therapy is generally considered safe but should be performed by trained healthcare professionals to minimize risks and ensure proper technique.
