MEDtube Science 2015 - The Use Of Platelet-Rich-Plasma In Aesthetic And Regenerative Medicine

3 years ago

Case description

The use of platelet-rich plasma, which is concentrated blood plasma enriched with platelets, is a relatively young but dynamically developing technique used in many fields of medicine. Growth factors released from platelets promote tissue regeneration and constitute an important part of tissue repair. There are several techniques to obtain PRP such as double spin method, which gives an opportunity to receive various concentrations of thrombocytes and leucocytes, and hence- various content of growth factors. Due to great regenerative potential with it high content of growth factors and other biologically active substances, PRP could be used in medical treatment aimed at skin rejuvenation and mesotherapy of head’s skin in the case of alopecia. There are also a number of reports confirming positive effects of PRP usage in scar reduction and minimization, improving results of wound therapy and in treatment of diabetic food ulcer. Recent studies show that platelet- -rich plasma could be used in orthopedics in bone regeneration, osteoarthritis and tendinopathy. Autologous platelet rich plasma does not stimulate immune response, which translates into minimal therapeutical side effects. Therefore it is probably one of the safest available methods of treatment in many cases. The aim of this publication is to present the outcomes of platelet-rich plasma usage in aesthetic and regenerative medicine.
