Platelet rich plasma therapy uses a patient’s own platelets to encourage and accelerate healing in a variety of tissues. With the growing popularity of using platelet rich plasma for aesthetic procedures, the need for a book that ties together all of the current literature in one place has become more pressing. This book fills in that gap as a comprehensive guide that covers history, basic science and clinical utility of platelet rich plasma with its uses in hair restoration, facial rejuvenation, and some wound healing. It includes the latest studies/literature from peer reviewed journals and clinical, anecdotal experience. Chapters provide an extensive look at how to describe the mechanism of action of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the skin and hair; how to identify the difference between PRP, platelet rich fibrin, and stem cells; and identify the various PRP preparation systems and how to calculate dosing.
Aesthetic Clinician’s Guide to Platelet Rich Plasma is written especially for the aesthetic clinician, whether dermatologist or plastic surgeon. This book will find utility across specialties and with it’s extensive coverage it is a vital reference.

Consider PRP treatment for alopecia
““ I really enjoyed watching the PRP Hair Restoration webinar with Dr. Reena Jogi and Dr. Shilpi Khetarpal. The information was easy to understand and scientifically well supported. I cannot wait to implement this procedure in my med spa! Grateful for the opportunity to have learned so much from the safety of my living room.””CharvayevPA-C
“I can't say enough good things about Dr. Khetarpal. EXCELLENT, EFFICIENT, PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, KNOWLEDGEABLE! Top notch for sure.”
“I have been getting PRP scalp injections now for approximately 6 months, spacing out the injections once a month or so. I have definitely noticed that there has been more hair growth globally that really became apparent around month 3-4. The injections themselves are relatively painless and the procedures take no longer then 10 minutes. I am doing the treatments in conjunction with biotin supplementation and head and shoulders shampoo. I continue to notice positive results and will continue to proceed with the PRP injections. I think you have to realize that the treatments will not completely resolve all the hair loss, but it will definitely recruit new hair growth and make the hair you do have gain more volume.”
