What is PRP?
We all have blood platelets. After every blood test, we get a blood report where our blood platelet count is mentioned. These platelets are available in our blood cells and through the PRP method, these platelets are separated from blood and plasma. PRP is a three-step procedure that is involved with the platelets in the blood.
The process includes
- Drawing blood from your arm.
- The blood sample is filled in a tube, which is placed in the centrifuge machine that separates platelets from the rest of the blood sample.
- The yellow composition of platelets is injected into your body because it is the only part of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets without any other component.
