PRP is an old technology. Its new incarnation is not drastically different from its former self. There is clinical proof for its usefulness in wound healing.

Besides few of them like VEGF and IGF are known to contribute to not-so-pleasant cutaneous effects. I give only 2 peels for Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in cosmetic dermatology.
