Platelet-rich Plasma or PRP is derived from a patient’s own blood sample and is composed of highly concentrated platelets and growth factors. PRP has been shown to stimulate healing by supplying growth factors, cytokines and other bioactive proteins. PRP can also act as a biological scaffold for stem cell treatments which can potentially enhance healing even further.
There are numerous PRP methods available so be sure to do your research on which might be best for you and your particular condition. RBI’s proprietary Plaletet-rich Plasma, called PlateletMax™, is optimized for healing by reducing leukocyte (or white blood cell) concentration while maximizing the number of platelets. Leukocytes can promote inflammation resulting in inferior repair with scar tissue. Therefore, leukocyte-reduced PRP such as PlateletMax™, may be the optimum preparation to stimulate superior healing with less scar tissue formation.
