The PRP Procedure

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

What is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) ?

A concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from wholeblood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.

What is…;Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) ?

It’s minimally invasive, requires little to no downtime, and is more affordable than surgery.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also known as autologous conditioned plasma, is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from wholeblood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.

As a concentrated source of blood plasma and autologous conditioned plasma, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines.

PRP has been investigated and used for chronic tendinitis, osteoarthritis, [ in oral surgery, and in plastic surgery.

It is now a popular aesthetic treatment for dermal thickness enhancement and rejuvenation as well as for hair regrowth and hair restoration. Learn the technique that all are requesting because it is natural, safe and helps offset age related changes to hair and skin! PRP is also being injected into the vagina and penis, in a procedure called “O-shot” or “orgasm shot” or “M” shot with claims that this will improve orgasms and erections favorably.

Since 2004, proponents of PRP therapy have argued that negative clinical results are associated with poor-quality PRP produced by inadequate single spin devices vs double spin devices. Hence you will learn the difference between the different devices on the market.


There are four general categories of preparation of PRP based on its leukocyte and fibrin content: leukocyte-rich PRP (L-PRP), leukocyte reduced PRP (P-PRP; leukocyte reduced or pure PRP), leukocyte platelet-rich fibrin and pure platelet-rich fibrin.

The efficacy of certain growth factors in healing various injuries and the concentrations of these growth factors found within PRP are the theoretical basis for the use of PRP in tissue repair. The platelets collected in PRP are activated by the addition of thrombin and calcium chloride, which induces the release of the mentioned factors from alpha granules. The growth factors and other cytokines present in PRP include:

platelet-derived growth factor

transforming growth factor beta

fibroblast growth factor

insulin-like growth factor 1

insulin-like growth factor 2

vascular endothelial growth factor

epidermal growth factor

Interleukin 8

keratinocyte growth factor

connective tissue growth factor

PRP is a leading treatment endorsed by the IHRS and top hair restoration experts globally

PRP is prepared by taking blood from the person, and then putting it through two stages of centrifugation designed to separate PRP from platelet-poor plasma and red blood cells. This is usually done by the clinic offering the treatment, using commercially available kits and equipment.
