Growth Factors

Platelet Rich Growth Factors permit the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell types to the wound in order to initiate the healing process.

 

One of those cell types is platelets. Platelets perform many functions, including formation of a blood clot and release of growth factors (GF) into the wound. These growth factors function to assist the body in repairing itself by stimulating stem cells to regenerate new tissues.

 

The more growth factors released into the wound, the more stem cells stimulated to produce new host tissue. Thus, one can easily see that PRGF permits the body to heal faster and more efficiently.
