What is PRF, and What is it Used For?

Are you curious about boosting the health of your skin, body, and hair naturally? PRF Therapy is an excellent treatment option for those looking to repair, heal, and renew their skin. Here, you can learn more about the many restorative uses of PRF therapy.

What is PRF?

Platelet-rich fibrin, or PRF, is used to help skin rejuvenation, hair growth, and wound healing. This 100% natural injectable treatment can rejuvenate your skin by giving you a more youthful and glowing complexion.

PRF treatment is similar to PRP therapy because it uses the patient’s blood to improve skin texture, increase collagen, and boost hyaluronic acid production. This treatment can repair wounds and burns and provides the antiaging formula that your skin needs.

Differences Between PRP and PRF

Both PRP and PRF require blood to be drawn from your body. Once the blood is drawn, your specialist will spin the blood in a centrifuge causing separation between the red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. PRF has a higher concentration of growth factors.

The PRF treatment’s slower spin speed allows for some of the white blood cells and stem cells to remain within the platelet layer collected for treatment. PRF has no blood thinning agent in the blood collection tube – that means 100% your blood/plasma.

PRF requires less blood to be removed from your body and offers increased effectiveness over time.

What is PRF Used For?

Stimulate Healing

Platelet-rich fibrin injections stimulate healing within the body. The Platelet mixture helps build tissue while the fibrin stimulates your stem cells/growth factors improving collagen and elastin in your skin.

Youthful Glow

PRF treatments provide a more youthful appearance of the face and neck by injecting your body’s own growth factors from your blood directly into the tissue areas that need increased regeneration and stimulating collagen and hyaluronic acid production.

These treatments can assist in regenerating skin and tissue around the mouth, temples, and under your eyes. Platelet-rich fibrin injected in the loose skin and dark circles under the eyes can brighten your face, making you appear less tired.

Similar to the skin, these injections can also stimulate hair growth, combatting scalp issues and hair loss as you age.

Treats Acne Scars

PRF adds moisture to the skin and boosts the skin’s natural blood flow. This can combat dull skin and scarring you may have noticed from dehydration, poor skin regimen, and pollution.

Long-term Anti-Aging Results

Although the treatment is brief, only lasting 45 minutes, the results can benefit you long-term. The treatment uses your blood in a concentrated area, stimulating lasting skin rejuvenation and regeneration. Once the results start to fade, you can come in for another treatment to maintain your skin goals.  At your consultation, your aesthetic provider will recommend a customized plan based on your goals.

Used in Combination with Other Treatments

Platelet-rich fibrin treatment can be used in combination with other procedures at our office. Combining this treatment can maximize the benefits of both treatments, getting you closer to achieving your skin goals.  As always, the importance of using medical-grade home care to support your in-office treatment is necessary to obtain optimal results.
