Your blood has powerful healing properties designed just for you. You take it for granted that blood clots – think back to a time that you grazed a knee or an elbow. Now medical experts can teach us so much more about using our blood to heal many different conditions.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP) has been shown to be safe and efficient in promoting natural wound healing.
Speed of treatment
Using traditional methods, injuries might have been treated with medication, physical therapy or even surgery. In contrast, Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment can bring healing quickly. It carries less risk than some conventional treatments as it uses individual healing abilities.
Blood platelets are tiny disc-shaped particles. They take microscopic granules to damaged tissue. At the site of damage, they release enzymes and growth hormones to promote repair and regrowth.
To the naked eye, blood looks like a red liquid and nothing more. Under a microscope, the different cells are identified. Red Cells carry oxygen to the body’s cells and remove carbon dioxide. White Cells help the immune system to attack infections and foreign materials. Platelets are involved in the repair, replacement and regrowth of damaged tissue. Plasma is a fluid that transports blood components, provides a supply of proteins, and carries away cellular-level waste.
Because it is your blood, there are no problems of allergic reaction or rejection. This highly- effective medication from your body’s own resources can be administered to you within a very short time span.
Simple and effective
Patients can relax when an Angel™ Platelet Rich Plasma system is in use. It’s chosen by operating theatres, wards and outpatient departments.
It takes only 17 minutes to produce platelet-rich plasma from your own blood. Up to 180 millilitres (6 ounces) is needed to concentrate your platelets into a much smaller volume. Medical staff apply this directly to areas needing repair – surgical incisions, wounds, tissue damaged by wear and tear.
The technology built into the Angel™ system allows different concentrations of platelets to be produced, each specific to you and the treatment you are receiving.
