Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Q & A

What is platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)?

Derived from a small sample of your own blood, PRF is a concentrated solution of platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells, all encased in a natural fibrin matrix. This unique composition accelerates tissue repair, promoting cellular regeneration and rejuvenation.

What are the key benefits of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)?

  1. Collagen Activation: PRF serves as a potent stimulant for collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful skin. It aids in minimizing fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

  2. Natural Volume Restoration: Unlike synthetic fillers, PRF offers a natural approach to facial rejuvenation. It replenishes lost volume, enhancing facial contours and creating a more youthful appearance.

  3. Revitalized Complexion: PRF treatments improve skin texture, tone, and overall luminosity. Experience a refreshed, radiant complexion with reduced signs of sun damage and uneven pigmentation.

  4. Under-Eye Rejuvenation: Target tired, puffy eyes with PRF. This safe and effective treatment reduces under-eye hollows and dark circles, revitalizing your gaze.

  5. Scar Reduction and Skin Resurfacing: PRF's regenerative properties make it an excellent option for improving the appearance of scars, including acne scars. It complements skin resurfacing procedures, accelerating the healing process.

  6. Hair Restoration and Thickening: PRF stimulates hair follicles, promoting thicker, healthier hair growth. It's a natural solution for those seeking to improve hair density and quality.

What technologies can be used to assist PRF in rejuvenating your skin?

  • Novalis Clareon - the Clareon IPL arm employs intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of red and darker discolored patches, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots.  It uses krypton light that is cooler and more effective for treating these issues, making it a more comfortable experience. The Clareon ST arm can be used to firm and tighten sagging skin.
  • Clear and Brilliant - a leading fractional laser that delivers smoother, younger-looking skin via a handheld device that is gently moved across your skin. This 30-minute treatment boosts collagen production as it evens out skin tone and may reduce the appearance of large pores. The Clear and Brilliant Permea arm is used to enhance the removal of brown pigments, lesions, and sun damage. It can increase the penetration of appropriate topical products up to 17 times greater than normal, making them more effective.
  • Venus Viva - a radiofrequency device microneedling device that incorporates magnetic energy to reduce fat and/or firm and tighten the appearance of your skin.
  • VariLite laser - targets vascular and pigmentation skin flaws including spider veins, enlarged capillaries, freckles, hair, and more.
  • Phoenix laser - a CO2 fractional laser that reduces the signs of aging of your hands. It can improve color, tone, and texture.
  • Micro-needling is also used as a pre-treatment results booster with PRF.
