About the Course
Benefits of using PRF in wound healing:
Platelet-rich fibrin is a second generation platelet concentrate which can enhance both soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages over platelet-rich plasma include ease of preparation, ease of application, minimal expense, and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). This considerably reduces the biochemical handling of blood as well as risks associated with the use of bovine-derived thrombin. PRF also contains physiologically available thrombin that results in slow polymerization of fibrinogen into fibrin which results in a physiologic architecture that is favorable to wound healing.
Subjectively less pain.
This lecture workshop will introduce the participant to the realm of PRF and how they can use it in practice to improve surgical outcomes, promote hair regeneration and provide facial esthetic solutions. The key is REGENERATION!
