Platelet Rich Plasma Filler for Hair Loss
Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma 1. Platelets are vehicles for the delivery of growth factors (PDGF, TGF-ß, IGF, EGF, VEGF) that induce proliferation of fibroblasts, osteoblasts and endothelial cells, promoting and accelerating healing of hard and soft tissues. Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma also contains fibrin, fibronectin and vitronectin that act as cell adhesion molecules for osteoconduction and as a matrix for bone, connective tissue and epithelial migration. Application of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma has been evaluated in various medical disciplines including orthopaedics, sports medicine, wound healing, neurosurgery, dentistry, ophthalmology as well as cosmetic, plastic, maxillofacial and cardiothoracic surgery.
