What is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an autologous high concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma measured as 1,000,000 platelets per mm3 or two to three times the native concentration of whole blood at a pH of 6.5 - 6.7 (whole blood pH is 7.0-7.2).

How is PRP processed?

Approximately 8ml of the patient’s blood is drawn and the tube is spun in the centrifuge. After centrifugation, the different cellular components of the blood are clearly separated in the tube. Approximately 4ml of concentrated PRP will be obtained for each tube.

PRP derived Growth Factors used in Treating Wounds
“Autologous platelet concentrate suspended in plasma, also known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), can be prepared from samples of centrifuged autologous blood. Exposure to a solution of thrombin and calcium chloride degranulates platelets, releasing the various growth factors and results in the polymerization of fibrin from fibrinogen, creating a platelet gel. The platelet gel can then be applied to wounds or may be used as an adjunct to surgery to promote hemostasis and accelerate healing” (quote taken from BCBS of NC corporate medical policy)

How are some doctors currently applying PRP’s wound healing properties in their practice? Watch the videos below to hear doctors discussing their use of the treatment:

PRP discussed on The Doctors TV show:

Dr. Charles Runels, inventor of the Vampire Facelift, discusses applications of PRP in his practice:


The treatment, which has also been titled in the press as “Dracula therapy”, is designed for patients that are looking for a natural treatment without the risk of allergic reactions or rejection like there is with substances like Hyaluronic Acid
or Botolinum Toxin. The patient acceptance is superior to most other aesthetic treatments and it’s fascinating to see what results our own biological material can achieve in comparison to conventional treatments.
