What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is found in the blood. The platelet is the special factor which is found in the blood that helps in clotting. These platelets are very important in the healing process.
PRP is prepared by drawing blood from a patient and by separating platelets from other blood cells. The concentrations of these platelets are increased by a process called centrifugation. Then this PRP which has increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood.

Platelet-rich plasma is mainly used for faster healing and to avoid more invasive or radical treatments. PRP substance is injected into the affected tissue, which leads to local inflammation which helps for wound healing and results in the deposition of new collagen and bioactive proteins found in platelets.
