We are now introducing PRP!! What is PRP?? PRP is an abbreviation for "Platelet-rich plasma".
What Is (PRP)? PRP is plasma with a higher concentration of platelets than what is typically found in blood. Although blood is mainly a liquid (plasma), it also contains small solid components: red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs) and platelets. Platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. In addition, platelets contain proteins called growth factors, which are important in the healing of injuries. How is PRP obtained? To obtain PRP, blood is first drawn from a patient. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge where the platelets are separated from other blood components in order to increase their concentration. The concentrated platelets are then re-suspended in a fraction of the plasma after the centrifugation process. What Is Adipose Tissue? Adipose tissue, or fat, is an anatomical term for loose connective tissue composed of fat cells (adipocytes). Its main role is to store energy in the form of fat; it also cushions and insulates your body.
