PRF for Face

Who doesn’t want younger-looking skin? Today, the anti-aging skincare products industry is worth around 17 billion and is likely to grow at a higher rate. From a hydrated and balanced diet to no stepping out in the sun, many skincare experts advise taking the best care of your skin. Besides, many options for skin rejuvenation, such as chemical peels, laser therapy, cosmetic surgery, and facial injectables, are available for skin rejuvenation.

However, advanced methods are creating pathways and transforming patient-centered care. PRF Platelet-rich fibrin is the second-generation platelet concentrate that contains platelets and growth factors in the form of fibrin membranes prepared from the patient’s blood. PRP Platelet-rich plasma is a standard treatment to heal injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints using a patient’s platelets. At the same time, PRF is more advanced and makes the effect last longer than PRP improving overall health and appearance of the skin.

Benefits of Platelet Rich Fibrin

Platelet-rich fibrin is the next-generation platelet therapy with immense potential in several medical fields. It has several benefits, such as:

  • Enhanced collagen production
    Collagen accounts for 30% of your body’s protein and provides structure, support, or strength to your skin, muscles, bones, or connective tissues. It helps keep our skin from sagging and drying out. However, our bodies’ collagen production naturally slows down. But PRF has concentrated growth factors that can stimulate collagen production.
  • Lighter and plumper under-eye skin
    Our most sensitive skin is located around the eyes. Dark circles and lines are common as we age, and PRF can naturally reduce the appearance of dark circles and lines.
  • Reduced facial wrinkles
    PRF can restore your youthful appearance by reducing your facial lines and wrinkles.
  • Faster healing
    The platelets the fibrin matrix holds can speed up the skin’s healing process for different conditions. It also encourages natural tissue regeneration.
  • No adverse effects
    PRF uses platelets from the patient’s own body. The procedure helps your overall facial appearance.

How Does PRF Work?

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is the second-generation platelet therapy after the platelet-rich plasma. Fibrin is an insoluble protein produced in response to bleeding and is the major component of the blood clot. The healthcare practitioner will first discuss your medical history and conditions, such as blood clotting, collagen vascular disease, an active infection, etc. PRF can be injected like a filler or be a part of a combined treatment with fillers for some areas, such as under the eyes. First, PRF is drawn from the patient’s blood with a process like PRP, depending on the surface area we want to cover. Then these tubes of blood are centrifuged, and the process will separate the blood cells from all the nutrient-rich cells we want. When the centrifugation is complete, the top layer is collected. This layer contains your own platelets and white blood cells, and then use it. The clot forms a strong natural fibrin matrix that concentrates almost all platelets and growth factors, enhancing wound healing and regeneration.

PRF can work on any skin type and produce results, whether normal, dry, or sensitive. It is a natural aesthetic injectable that can rejuvenate the appearance of your face. So, schedule an appointment with Clarity Medical Spa at (408) 599-3088.
