How Is PRP Applied?
The use of PRP varies from procedure to procedure and can be applied in a variety of ways. Generally, it is sprayed on topically at the end of the procedure to control post-op oozing, to fixate small bone graft material, and to spread the concentrated growth factors under and around soft tissue and tissue grafts. PRP can also be injected into an injury site without an incision to help the injury site heal. The presence of the high concentration of platelets starts and accelerates the healing process and reduces post operative swelling, bruising, scarring, and pain.
