When the body detects a wound, it begins the healing process by rushing different cells to the wound. One of the main cell types is Platelets. Platelets are the cells that circulate in our blood and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessels. When you get a cut or a wound, the platelets bind together at the site causing a blood clot which stops us from bleeding. This stimulates stem cells that help create new tissues. This overall process allows the body to heal faster and more efficiently.
In addition to oral surgery procedures such as bone grafting, sinus lift and ridge augmentation procedures, APRF has many additional clinical applications such as repairing bone defects caused by cysts and extractions, and even trauma to the skin such as sun damage, acne scars and wrinkles. It has even been used to regrow hair in patients.
