Platelet-rich plasma, a powerful tool in dermatology.
J Tissue Eng Regen Med. 2019 05; 13(5):892-901.JT

Abstract

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a platelet concentrate contained in a small volume of plasma, has become a promising option in the last decade to treat different diseases related to the skin due to its high concentration of growth factors. When it is of autologous origin, it decreases the probability of suffering adverse reactions and transfusion-transmitted infections, thus it is an optimal and safe therapy for the patient. PRP has been used in the treatment of several dermatological conditions such as acne, alopecia, and skin ulcers. Its use has also extended to other skin conditions such as melasma, hyperpigmentation, and burns, where it stimulates tissue repair and regeneration. The purpose of this article is to review the management and treatment of different dermatological alterations with PRP. Although there are a variety of studies that support the use of PRP, more research is needed to standardise the protocols for obtaining, processing, and applying it as well as understanding the biological and molecular bases of its functioning.
