PRF (Platelet-rich fibrin) is a revolutionary new treatment and the second generation of PRP therapy. PRF has a higher concentration of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells.PRF promotes better healing from within your own body because it is made from your own blood.
As we age we lose volume in our face, under our eyes, in our cheeks and around our mouths. This is due to loss of collagen and elastin.
To stimulate collagen production, tighten loose skin and add volume back to the face there are non-surgical options, including dermal fillers, thread lifts, lasers and platelet rich plasma (PRP) and platelet rich fibrin (PRF).
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a new, all-natural solution that can treat common areas that show the first signs of ageing and hair loss.
The first changes after PRF treatment is seen within couple of weeks, the maximum effect is reached in about six to eight weeks.
The PRF products are spun at a lower speed so that the layers of the blood do not separate out as distinctly. This allows some of the white blood cells and stem cells to remain within the platelet layer that is collected for treatment. Thus, there are more healing factors within PRF than is typically seen in PRP. In addition, the lower spin speed causes less trauma to the individual cells of the blood, allowing more stem cells to remain in the final PRF product.
The doctor will initially assess if you’re a candidate for PRF treatment. Patients with blood clotting disorders cannot take advantage of this treatment. That will collect a sample of your blood. The blood is spun at a lower speed so that the layers of the blood do not separate as distinctly. This allows some white blood cells and stems cells to remain within the platelet layer collected for treatment. Thus, there are more healing factors within PRF than is typically seen in PRP. In addition, the lower spin speed causes less trauma to the individual cells of the blood, allowing more stem cells to remain in the final PRF product.
After PRF, we use a micro-needling pen with very fine needles that pierce the top layer of the skin in a controlled and precise pattern. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process resulting in increased elastin and Collagen production. The PRF or Platelet Rich Fibrin is driven into these micro-injuries to accelerate and improve the body’s healing ability. This process tightens, lifts and rejuvenates the skin, giving a smoother, firmer, younger-looking appearance!
Combining microneedling with PRF prompts the body to create even more collagen and Elastin resulting in healthier, youthful-looking skin!
PRF is performed in three or four treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. Long-term effects, such as skin tightening, collagen production and enhanced skin quality, may take up to three to four months to be noticed and can last from six to 12 months. The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after six weeks after initial treatment.
Platelet-rich fibrin application is now becoming more popular and is used widely. PRF is entirely safe, as the blood will come from your body, and disease transmission is not a factor. Almost all patients report a much greater comfort immediately after their procedure.
There are several advantages of PRF:
