PRP stands for Platelet-rich plasma. It is a patient’s own blood which has been spun down using a centrifuge, to separate out the portion of the plasma most rich in platelets from the red and white blood cells. Those platelets, when activated release numerous growth factors which helps repair tissue. Normal platelet counts in blood range between 150,000/µl and 350,000/µl and average about 200,000/µl. Because the scientific proof of bone and soft tissue healing enhancement has been shown using PRP with 1,000,000 platelets/µl, it is this concentration of platelets in a 5-ml volume of plasma which is the working definition of PRP today. Using your own blood-derived growth factors to make you look and feel Ageless.
Once the PRP is harvested, it is then injected or applied to the area of concern to help regenerate and repair tissue. A few of the conditions we treat using PRP therapy:
PRP is extremely safe, natural, and has very few contraindications making it a great choice for most patients. Not only is it safe, but the results are phenomenal!
All PRP is not made equally. We defined the working definition of PRP, however, anytime platelets are more concentrated in plasma than in whole blood, and red and white blood cells have been separated, one could technically call a sample PRP.
While you still would likely see some improvement using a sample that was concentrated at 1.5-3x, at Ageless Rx, we didn’t just want improvement, we wanted the BEST, which is why we chose PureSpin PRP kits by EmCyte. You will notice in the attached comparison study performed by an independent third party, that PureSpin PRP® technology is unsurpassed yielding a platelet concentration of 5-7 x baseline and the highest percentage of growth factors released.Download PDF
