Platelet-rich plasma therapy: from facial rejuvenation to bone regeneration

Platelet-rich plasma therapy: from facial rejuvenation to bone regeneration Fibroblast proliferation and collagen production are key to facial rejuvenation. Just as topical growth factors are used to rejuvenate photodamaged skin and increase collagen production (Sundaram et al, 2009), the administration of a solution high in growth factor proteins into the dermis or subdermis may prove a valuable tool both in the regeneration of facial tissues and the treatment of other common aesthetic indications (e.g. stretch marks and scars). Platelet-rich plasma therapy acts as a scaffold in vivo and allows aesthetic practitioners to administer a high concentration of growth factor proteins into various tissue types to stimulate fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Fibroblast proliferation and collagen production are key to facial rejuvenation. Just as topical growth factors are used to rejuvenate photodamaged skin and increase collagen production (Sundaram et al, 2009), the administration of a solution high in growth factor proteins into the dermis or subdermis may prove a valuable tool both in the regeneration of facial tissues and the treatment of other common aesthetic indications (e.g. stretch marks and scars). Platelet-rich plasma therapy acts as a scaffold in vivo and allows aesthetic practitioners to administer a high concentration of growth factor proteins into various tissue types to stimulate fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis.
