PRP Growth Factors
PRP Growth Factors Released by Platelet
PRP is very rich in not just platelet but also rich in multiple growth factors which are essential in the speeding up of wound healing.
PRP growth factor: Platelet derived growth factors released by platelet brings about robust and speedy wound repair
As can be seen in the diagram and its relationship above, it is a very complex and interdependence of various factors is in the work.
Among the growth factors are:
- Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF);
- Fibroblast growth Factor (FGF)
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
- Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
- Transforming Growth Factor Beta 1 (TGF-B)
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
All these factors are involved for the PRP therapy procedure done by our doctor in the clinic for aesthetic skin enhancement, treatment for the knee pain, ankle pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, muscle injury, collagen repair for wound, hair growth etc.
The various growth factors has a separate, specific and overlapping functions as can be enumerated below:
- The Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) help in the cell growth, the generation of new and repair of new vessels, and also help in the collagen synthesis which is critical for any repair of tissues after injury.
- Fibroblast growth Factor (FGF) help in cell growth and repair of tissues. It also help in the collagen formation and synthesis just as PDGF.
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) helps in the epithelial cell formation and growth, angiogenesis and wound repair.
- Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF) specifically help in the repair and growth of keratinocytes.
- Transforming Growth Factor Beta 1 (TGF-B) help in the promotion of growth of epithelial and vascular cell, i.e. endothelial ell growth and also in the wound repair.
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) as the name suggest helps in the growth and repair of endothelial cell growth which is mainly involving the vascular system.
- IGF I and II
