Can PRP gel speed up the healing process?

PRP gel contains plasma-derived protein, or growth factors, naturally found in our blood, only at a much higher level. These growth factors carry anti-inflammatory properties, and when injected at the wound site, interact with our body to stimulate the natural healing process. After using PRP—also known as platelet-rich plasma—patients experience a rapid rate of cell growth and repair to the damaged tissues. It does seem to quicken the healing process and result in a much faster recovery. In addition, there are few known side effects to this state-of-the-art treatment.
