Not all PRP is the same in that there are various ways PRP can be processed and different techniques of treatment (for instance stimulation of the scalp varies). Examples like the roller to stimulate the scalp after PRP has been injected into the scalp. it can both stimulate and be used as a delivery device during the procedure and after (for application of Rogaine for instance) by the patient.
Types of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP):
- Platelet Rich Plasma
- Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma
- Platelet Rich Plasma with concentrated Protein Enriched Plasma
- PRP with filtered RBC’s
- Leukocyte rich PRP
- Leukocyte poor PRP
- Pure cytokines (GF’s) without RBC’s, WBC’s or platelets ( where the GF’s were activated and removed from the platelets).
Therefore, not all PRP is the same, it can be processed in different ways to achieve a desired result, used it in many different ways.
