Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is an innovative treatment that utilizes elements from your own blood to naturally rejuvenate the skin. It is a second-generation technique following platelet-rich plasma (PRP), offering a more natural solution for addressing signs of aging and other cosmetic skin concerns.
How does PRF treatment differ from PRP?
PRF contains a higher concentration of growth factors ,platelets & fibrin, compared to PRP. It is obtained by centrifuging blood at a lower speed, allowing for a combination of heavier components (growth and stem cells) with lighter platelets and plasma found in your bloodstream.
What is the procedure followed in PRF treatment?
The procedure begins with the extraction of a small amount of blood from the patient. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge, where it is spun at high speeds to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the rest of the blood components. The resulting PRF, containing a concentrated amount of platelets and growth factors, is carefully applied or injected into the skin. These platelets and growth factors work synergistically to stimulate collagen production and promote tissue regeneration, leading to improved skin texture, tone, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. This natural and minimally invasive treatment offers the advantage of utilizing the body’s own healing properties to achieve desired skin rejuvenation effects.
How does PRP work?
PRF works by kickstarting new cell growth and collagen production. When your body is injured, in this case by microneedling, or an injection, the platelets in your blood become activated and release growth factors. These growth factors start the wound healing process by creating new skin cells, collagen, elastin, and blood vessels. This results in firmer, plumper skin, and a reduction in fine lines and dark spots.
What can be treated with Platelet Rich Fibrin?
PRF is commonly used for facial skin rejuvenation, as well as hair restoration and treating stretch marks on other areas of the body. It effectively addresses lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, mild to moderate skin laxity, acne or injury scars, and enlarged pores.
Why is PRF sometimes combined with dermal fillers?
Platelet Rich Fibrin can be combined with dermal fillers to thin the hyaluronic acid component, resulting in smoother and more natural-looking outcomes, especially for patients with thin skin who desire improvement with fillers.
Am I a candidate for Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) treatment?
If you’re in good overall health and wish to improve fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, skin laxity, and other common cosmetic concerns associated with aging, PRF treatment may be suitable for you. A consultation will help determine if it aligns with your aesthetic goals.
What are the results of PRF treatment and how long do they last?
Results vary based on factors such as overall skin health, number of treatment sessions, and treatment area size. Immediate improvement is often noticeable, but optimal outcomes in terms of skin tightening, collagen production, and improved skin quality may take a few months to become prominent and can last between 6 to 12 months.
Are there any side effects with PRF treatment?
Since PRF utilizes your own blood, the risk of rejection or allergic reactions is minimal. Following injections, mild redness, swelling (2 to 4 days), and slight bruising (typically subsiding within 24-48 hours) may occur, but they are temporary and well-tolerated.
