The above article grabbed my attention since I have recently evaluated the cosmetic applications of platelet rich plasma (PRP).

This article explains the promising effects of a platelet cryoprecipitation product rich in growth factors augmenting osteogenesis and bone repair. Does it have any effect on fibroblasts? Can we tweak the technology into an anti-ageing product? Or as I concluded from my PRP evaluation, platelet derived products have an established role in wound/bone repair but not in cosmetic dermatology? Obviously nobody wants a bony skin.
