PRP Treatment Uses Your Own Blood
PRP Treatment uses your own platelets to help restore tissue naturally; this is the precursor to stem cell therapy. In the past 20 years, the discovery of activated blood platelets that release healing proteins or growth factors has continued to expand. Learn about how YESPRPKIT utilizes this safe and unique process of increasing the baseline concentration of platelets, yielding a more powerful cocktail of growth factors.
Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP Treatment Contains Growth Factors
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), a type of therapy that utilizes the growth factors in the patient’s own blood, uses components called platelets to aid in the healing process. Leveraging the innate wound-healing ability inherent in the platelets, the protocol is performed by separating the injecting the PRP harvested from the blood. Platelets contain growth factors that activate the cells in your body. The growth factors induce the generation of new cells that have been shown to rejuvenate from within. In clinical studies, the PRP treatment has show to be effective for wound healing and reversing non-healing trends.
PRP treatment has been studied since the early 1970’s. It’s healing properties have been attributed to increased concentrations of autologous growth factors and secretory proteins that may enhance the healing process on a cellular level.
Growth Factors Are Proteins
Platelets play an important role in wound healing. They provide initial Hemostasis and release mediators to help modulate the inflammatory response and many of the cellular functions involved in healing of a wound. Contained in the alpha granules of platelets are multiple growth factors. Growth factors are proteins that impart particular biochemical messages to specific target cells through precise membrane receptors. Growth factors possess paracrine related properties that are stimulatory for mitogenic activities, cellular differentiation, protein transcription, chemotaxis, angiogenesis, and collagenase activities.
