What does PRP-PRF Mean?
PRP-PRF Therapy, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma – Platelet-Rich Fibrin Therapy, is an advanced regenerative treatment. It utilizes the patient’s blood to promote healing. By separating platelets and fibrin, creating a concentrated solution.
Then we inject this solution into the affected area. The platelets release growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration.
