TLDR Platelet-rich plasma might help with hair growth and skin conditions, but more research is needed to prove its effectiveness and safety.
The document from 2014 reviews the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in dermatology, with a focus on hair restoration, skin rejuvenation, and healing chronic ulcers. PRP, which is rich in growth factors, is thought to aid tissue repair and regeneration. The review points out the low level of evidence supporting PRP's effectiveness due to scattered data and calls for more well-designed, larger trials to validate its use. It describes PRP preparation methods and types, and while some studies show PRP's potential benefits, particularly in increasing hair density and aiding skin conditions, the overall quality of evidence is low to intermediate. The document also notes PRP's safety as an autologous preparation but stresses the need for further research to confirm its efficacy and long-term safety.View this study on ijdvl.com →
