Arch Facial Plast Surg. 2001;3(4):251. doi:

I WOULD like to commend Drs Powell, Chang, and Farrior1 for this much-needed scientific evaluation of the very promising new method of using concentrated autologous healing factors found in platelets to improve the outcome of cosmetic facial plastic surgical procedures. Autologous platelet gel, one form of concentrated healing factor, has become an integral part of my "aging face" practice. I have fairly extensive experience with this new surgical method, having used autologous platelet gel in more than 250 cases during the past 18 months, and I have been very pleased with the results. We have seen many impressive improvements, including accelerated resolution of bruising, accelerated healing, and more predictable healing. Furthermore, the need for closed suction drains and pressure dressings no longer exists. All of these improvements have led to increased patient satisfaction.
