What is Autologous Platelet Healing Gel?
Autologous Platelet Healing Gel is made from a natural component of the patient’s own blood that is used to aid in the quicker recovery following certain cosmetic procedures. It is used at the end of a procedure and sprayed under the skin where it reduces bruising, swelling and speeds healing. Because it is so concentrated, it acts as a wound sealant (tissue glue). This reduces the need for dressings and drains, and also reduces the incidence of hematomas (blood collections) and seromas (fluid collections). It also reduces bruising and swelling. In addition, it promotes more rapid healing by secreting healing and growth factors which enhance recovery.
