What is PRP treatment?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is obtained by collecting your own blood and using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets.
Since platelets contain growth factors that promote repair, PRP, which is created by concentrating blood, contains a large amount of growth factors.
It is a treatment that promotes healing by injecting it into the affected area.
PRP is positioned in regenerative medicine.
