What are PRP & PRF Injections for Face & Skin?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) injections are advanced regenerative treatments that harness the healing power of a patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the face and skin. By isolating the platelets and, in PRF’s case, the fibrin matrix, these treatments create a potent serum or gel. When injected into the skin, they stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, enhance skin texture and tone, and promote the repair of scars and stretch marks. These innovative approaches are gaining popularity for their ability to improve skin health and appearance, leveraging the body’s own regenerative capabilities.

How Do PRP & PRF Injections Work?

The process for both PRP and PRF begins with a small sample of the patient’s blood. For PRP, the blood is centrifuged to separate and concentrate the platelets, which are then re-injected into the treatment area. PRF, using a slightly different preparation method, yields a higher concentration of platelets and growth factors, along with a fibrin matrix to provide a scaffolding for tissue repair. This enriched serum or gel is then carefully injected into targeted areas of the skin. The growth factors released by the platelets stimulate skin cells to regenerate, producing more collagen and elastin, which are essential for youthful, healthy-looking skin.

Benefits of PRP & PRF Injections

Natural Rejuvenation

Utilizes the body’s own healing mechanisms to enhance skin texture and appearance without the use of synthetic substances.

Improvement in Skin Texture and Tone

Leads to smoother, firmer skin with a more even tone, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Reduction of Scars and Stretch Marks

Promotes healing and regeneration of skin, diminishing the visibility of scars and stretch marks.

Long-lasting Effects

PRF injections, in particular, offer a longer duration of action due to the slow release of growth factors.

Minimal Downtime

Both treatments involve minimal downtime, allowing for a quick return to daily activities with little to no disruption.

PRF is a newer generation of treatment that produces a higher concentration of platelets and growth factors, and includes a fibrin matrix for longer-lasting results.

How long does the procedure take?

The entire process typically takes about an hour, including preparation, blood draw, and injections.

Is the treatment painful?

Discomfort is minimal, as a topical anesthetic is applied before the injections to ensure patient comfort.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of sessions depends on individual goals and skin condition, but generally, 1-3 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
