Add PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) to your microneedling or dermal filler treatment and dramatically magnify the rejuvenating effects of your procedure. PRF uses your own platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells to promote collagen production, tighten skin, and more.
Platelet Rich Fibrin, or PRF, is a newer, more natural treatment option that combats the signs of aging and restores a youthful appearance. PRF contains platelets and white blood cells that produce powerful growth factors that dramatically magnify the rejuvenating effects of certain treatments including: Microneedling, Dermal Fillers, and Hair Restoration.
Prior to your treatment, a small sample of blood is collected to prepare your PRF serum. The blood sample is slowly spun in a centrifuge, isolating the white blood cells and platelets to create a nutrient rich concentrate. Your provider will incorporate the PRF concentrate into the treatment, using the nutrient-rich serum to enhance results.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, rejuvenates the skin by harnessing the body’s natural rejuvenation abilities in a process known as controlled wound healing. During a microneedling procedure, microscopic punctures, known as micro-wounds, are created along the skin. Though superficial, the micro-wounds stimulate a ‘wound healing cascade', causing the body to increase circulation, release growth factors, create more cells, and produce more collagen. The result is beautifully restored, naturally rejuvenated skin.
In addition to stimulating a wound healing cascade, microneedling provides an excellent delivery system for topical serums such as PRF, or Platelet Rich Fibrin. The small punctures created in the procedure act as micro-channels that facilitate the delivery of PRF into the deeper layers of the epidermis. This improves both the absorption and mechanism of action. Adding PRF increases the production of collagen, activates platelets and growth factors without the need for synthetic additives, and extends the activity of the blood cells from a couple hours to 14 days.
This treatment is great for acne scars, stretch marks, skin tightening, and overall skin rejuvenation.
Adding PRF to a dermal filler treatment introduces growth factors to the area, helping to stimulate new collagen production and reverse the signs of aging.
The treatment starts by drawing your blood and spinning it in the centrifuge to separate the PRF from your red blood cells. Your provider will then add the PRF into a filler of your choice such as Juvederm or Restylane, or inject it by itself.
PRF is great as an under eye filler because it helps with the dark circles, wrinkles, and loose skin in the area. It can also be injected to other common areas to smooth and rejuvenate the skin.
Because the PRF uses your own blood for the injection, it is very safe with little to no side effects. The potential side effects include redness, swelling, or bruising.
If you’re looking for a more natural treatment and don’t want to rely too much on dermal fillers, PRF injections may be the right treatment for you.
