Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is composed of concentrated, autologous platelets suspended in a small amount of plasma after centrifugation. More simply put, PRP comes from a patient’s own blood. It is unique to them and is therefore more easily assimilated by the body after being prepared through a centrifuge and injected into the patient’s target area.
