The mechanism of effect is the same for all of them honestly.... any or either should work.

Prolo is generally a salt solution, and PRP/autologous blood is obviously platelets etc.

Basically they're aiming to irritate the area to try to induce inflammatory processes to heal the area or hypertrophy some structures if there's either chronic degeneration or laxity.

Platelets function similarly to the salt solutions in this regard -- they both signal inflammatory processes to come to the area to initiate healing/hypertrophy.
