Platelet-Rich Plasma is almost like magic. Here’s how it works. We draw a patient’s blood and put it into this high-tech machine (called a centrifuge) that spins it until the platelets separate from the red and white blood cells. Then we inject those platelets into the skin and let them do their work. Platelets are really good at healing, and because we concentrate them up to 18 times the normal amount, getting a shot of PRP is like supercharging your body’s regeneration process.
