Rejuvenating Your Skin With PRP

Medical aesthetic treatments have advanced year after year. Particularly exciting, more and more practitioners are offering their patients platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. This injectable treatment uses PRP derived from the patient’s own blood to trigger regeneration in the skin.

At our office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Dr. Norman J. Pastorek and Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, take it one step further, offering platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) treatment for skin rejuvenation. This more advanced version of PRP treatment helps you get even better results. 

To help you understand what PRP and PRF can do for you, here’s a quick overview.

How PRP and PRF work

When you choose PRP or PRF treatment, we take a very small amount of blood from your arm. That blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets and fibrin in your blood from the other components.

Platelets are rich in growth factors, which are your body’s way of signaling that it’s time to start a healing process. PRF is similar to PRP, but it uses concentrated fibrin to deliver significantly more growth factors to the area.

By injecting the PRF into targeted locations on your face or applying it after microneedling or laser treatment, Dr. Pastorek tells your skin it’s time to kickstart its rejuvenation processes. Ultimately, PRF can help to create smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin. 

With this treatment, Dr. Pastorek can help to reduce the appearance of:

PRF can also help to reduce volume loss throughout your face, minimizing facial folds and sagging skin. And it does all of this with a solution derived from your own body, so it’s both safe and natural. 

The right skin-rejuvenation treatment for you

Generally, you’ll get even better results with repeat PRF treatments. When we combine PRF with microneedling or laser treatment, the PRF can penetrate more deeply into your skin, driving improved outcomes for you. 

Talk to Dr. Pastorek about your skin-rejuvenation goals. That way, he can customize a treatment plan for you.

Because he’s an expert in leading-edge cosmetic treatments, you can rest easy knowing Dr. Pastorek will only recommend safe, effective treatments for you. With PRF, he improves on the results available with PRP treatment, ultimately helping you reach your skin-rejuvenation goals. 

If you’re ready for a fresh start for your skin in this new year, call our office or schedule your appointment online today. Dr. Pastorek and Janice Pastorek can help you choose the best skin-rejuvenation treatments for your unique cosmetic goals.
