PRF combines skin resurfacing with the application of blood-derived growth factors to regulate cell growth, repair damaged tissue and promote collagen and healthy cell production. PRF is used to treat texture, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and hair restoration. It also reduces stretch marks caused by weight and muscle gain or loss. PRF is a two-step treatment including Micro-needling or Fraxel and the application of your body’s own nutrient and protein rich plasma.
Frequently Ask Questions
1- How is PRF derived?
PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) is derived from whole blood. During your visit, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, similar to a basic lab test. The patient’s blood is then placed into a centrifuge. During the centrifugation process, the red blood cells, white blood cells, and other inflammatory cytokines are separated from plasma, which contains platelets along with several platelet derived growth factors. Once the platelet-rich Fibrin is separated, it is drawn up into a syringe and either micro-needled into the skin, or applied directly to the skin post-Fraxel.
