This book details the uses of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) techniques for dermatologic purposes and describes the techniques and protocols for its application in clinical practice. Concise and practical, this reference covers not only the procedural steps in collecting PRP from a patient, but also applications in wound healing, hair loss, skin rejuvenation, scarring, and face and body augmentation. It addresses the issues that are caused by fad procedures, such as the "Vampire Facelift," and emphasizes the importance of reliable information in these cases. Chapters are supplemented with multimedia including high-quality images, illustrations, and an instructional video. Platelet-Rich Plasma in Dermatologic Practice is written for clinicians in practice looking to offer alternatives to more invasive aesthetic surgery techniques.
