WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a preparation with a particularly high platelet count (PLT) in a limited volume of plasma.
PRP contains growth factors and bioactive proteins that regulate differentiated cells, modulate cell growth and activity, all of which are vital for tissue regeneration processes and formation of technical tissues.
In PRP therapy, autologous PRP is derived from the patient’s blood. During a course of PRP therapy, concentrated PRP is either injected or applied topically to improve the condition of tissues and wound healing processes.
ADVANTAGES OF PRP THERAPY
• wide range of applications
• the natural possibility for the body to heal itself – autologous active substances
• high efficiency and proven results
• no risk of infectious
• very low risk of allergic reactions
AREAS OF APPLICATION OF PRP
Skin rejuvenation, wrinkles, acne irregularities, hair loss, fat transplantation, laser treatments
Bedsores, leg ulcers, burns, wounds
Orthopaedics and pain
Treatment of cartilage and ligaments, arthritis, tendonitis, post-surgical pain, inflammation relief, chronic pain
Bone grafting, including insertion and finishing, sinus lift, bone defects after tooth extraction, small cysts or cracks, implant surgery in dentistry
Corneal epithelium defects, dry eye syndrome, eye surface lesions, post-surgical laser syndrome
Tendon and ligament injuries, wound healing, osteoarthritis therapy
WHY GLO PRP?
• It takes into account the initial differential between RBCs (red blood cells) and PLTs (platelets) -> consistently high PRP quality
• It has a layer of platelets and white blood cells (leukocytes) (so-called buffy coat) -> highest PRP concentration
• Adjustable PRP concentration
• Platelet-poor plasma (PPP) can be applied to other areas
• Great value for money
• Independence of the initial RBC and PLT count
– The system takes into account individual initial differences in PLT and RBC concentrations and standardises the plasma.
• Simple and accurate separation of a platelet and the white blood cell (leukocyte) layer (buffy coat)
– PRP with a platelet and leukocyte layer (buffy coat) allows increase the initial concentration level of PLT by 4 to 8 times, while without this layer the concentration can increase at most by 3.
• No need for manual infusion
– Manual infusion leads to the mixing of the contents and increases the risk of infection and decreased PLT concentrations.
