PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. It is a medical procedure that utilizes a concentrated form of platelets derived from the patient's own blood to promote healing and regeneration in various areas of the body. Platelets are rich in growth factors and other bioactive substances that play a crucial role in tissue repair and rejuvenation. PRP therapy involves extracting a small sample of the patient's blood, processing it to separate the platelets from other components, and then injecting the concentrated platelets back into the targeted area.
