Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a medical treatment that uses a patient's own blood to promote healing and tissue regeneration. 


1. Blood collection: A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, usually from the arm, just like a standard blood test. A PRP blood tube is used here. 

2. Centrifugation: The blood is then placed in a Medical Blood Centrifuge the Medifuge, a device that spins to separate the components based on density. This process separates the blood into different components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets.

3. Concentration of platelets: The centrifugation process concentrates platelets, small cell fragments that play a crucial role in blood clotting and wound healing. The concentrated platelets contain a higher concentration of growth factors than ordinary blood.

4. Injection: The platelet-rich plasma - i.e. the PRP portion is extracted from the blood tube and injected into the specific body part to be treated. 

This could be a joint with osteoarthritis, a tendon injury or even the scalp for hair restoration and for skin regeneration.

5. Healing process: The growth factors in PRP stimulate the body's natural healing processes. They can attract stem cells, increase blood flow and promote tissue repair and regeneration.

PRP is used in sports medicine to treat various injuries, especially those of tendons, ligaments and joints. It has also is used in gynaecologie, dermatology for skin rejuvenation, to stimulate hair growth and in orthopaedics for conditions such as osteoarthritis.
