Outline & Course Description: PRP/PRF TRAINING included in Therapeutic & Aesthetic Botox-Dermal Fillers-TMJ / TMD


Hands-On Training in Medical and Aesthetic Applications for PRP and PRF



PRP treatment can be the ideal complement to other aesthetic injectable

procedures, including Botulinum Toxin-A and dermal fillers.

During a PRP procedure, the patient’s blood is separated via a variety of

techniques, which extract a concentration of autologous platelets. When

activated, these platelets release adhesive glycoproteins as well as growth

factors, which form a fibrin mesh beneath the tissue.

The growth factors that are released when the concentrated autologous

platelets are activated in the soft tissue include:

  • Connective tissue growth factor
  • Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β)
  • Insulin-like growth factor – I & II (ILGF)
  • Epidermal growth factor (EGF)
  • Interleukin-8
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)
  • Keratinocyte growth factor
  • Fibroblast growth factor

When these growth factors and proteins bind with the cellular receptors of

skin tissue at the injection point, they trigger a variety of inter cellular

events that help mediate:

  • Production of extracellular matrix proteins
  • Migration of stem cells to injection area
  • Angiogenesis
  • New cell proliferation

This growth, as well as tissue repair, will continue up to five weeks after the

patient receives injections. This results in the promotion of local tissue

growth and permanent repair of damaged tissue.

This comprehensive course will cover the component factors of platelet-rich

plasma as well as the two FDA-approved PRP/PRF preparation processes

and re-injection techniques and protocols.

Clinically, PRP has been used by oral surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and

plastic surgeons for over 15 years. Platelet-rich plasma procedures have also

received considerable attention in the popular media because of their use in

treating sports injuries in professional athletes.

Advanced Dental Institute has included this PRP/PRF Training into it’s

Therapeutic & Aesthetic Botox-Dermal Fillers-TMJ course. This training

will provides hands-on training through live demonstrations on patients for

aesthetic uses. 28 ceu
