Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), already frequently used in orthopedic medicine, has become more and more popular for esthetic dermatology treatments. It is now an evidence-based practice used all over the world. This illustrated guide introduces all the relevant aspects of PRP application in esthetic dermatology. In addition to basic principles, possibilities and limitations, it also provides a practical presentation of current systems for harvesting PRP. One chapter is devoted to a series of striking photographic case histories extending over the course of several months, which demonstrate both the potential and the limitations of this method. Other tools include in-depth diagrams of various regions of the face, neck, and hands and how PRP should be applied in each area as well as patient information sheets and forms. Therefore, this book serves to equip potential practitioners with all the information they need to be able to perform PRP treatments in esthetic medicine.
