Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Vampire Technique

PRP is a revolutionary treatment that uses the patient’s own resources to treat health problems, its main quality being the start of the process of building healthy epithelial, muscular and connective tissues. Plasma therapy simultaneously influences all stages of regeneration and provides the necessary synergy for all recovery processes in the body.

PRP therapy offers a high content of primary, secondary and tertiary growth factors, combined naturally, as opposed to treatments with many artificially created preparations.

Plasma therapy

PRP procedure

Special test tubes of different sizes are used, depending on the amount of plasma required. Then, the blood is collected in these tubes, after which it is centrifuged, obtaining plasma enriched with platelets (platelets). It is injected / infiltrated into the affected areas and releases growth factors, inducing a biological process of tissue repair, impossible to reproduce by other methods.

The advantage of therapy

Anti-inflammatory drugs should not be used during treatment. The patient must have a sufficient level of vitamin D in the body, because this aspect potentiates the effects of the procedure.

Duration of treatment

It is recommended to perform 6 PRP sessions, at a distance of 21-30 days from each other.

More about therapy

Platelet-rich plasma injection (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment based on the following concept: the use of internal resources to heal and regenerate tissues in the body. Among the most important factors involved in these complex processes are platelets, cells that are found in the blood and that intervene in the post-traumatic moment, ensuring both the cessation of bleeding (initiates the coagulation process) and the healing of wounds.
