PRF Treatment for Aging Skin,
Scaring & Stretch Marks

The Power of Your Own Collagen to Create a Youthful You!

PRF FOR SKIN REJUVENATION

As we age we lose volume in our face, under our eyes, in our cheeks, and around our mouths. This is due to the loss of collagen and elastin. To stimulate collagen production, tighten loose skin and add volume back to the face there are non-surgical options, including dermal fillers, thread lifts, lasers, PRP and PRF.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Stimulates Your Body’s Own Regenerative Ability.

PRF is obtained from your own blood and is rich in growth factors and platelets which stimulate your skin to function like younger skin. Fibrin is uses to eliminate fine lines, diminish deeper lines and re-build lost volume naturally over time. The results are gradual and therefore look very natural. The Best Version of You!

Both PRP (platelet rich plasma), and PRF (platelet rich fibrin) are platelet based growth factor treatments that are extracted using centrifuge. PRF is different from PRP in that there is no anticoagulant (blood thinner) added during the spin.
And here is the technical detail : The avoidance of clotting is physiological and is achieved through negative charge of the collecting tube to mimic the conditions within our own blood vessels (their lining is negatively charged) that prevent fibrin from creating a clot within them, thus, obtaining a platelet rich injectable fibrin. Once PRF is injected in the tissue it transforms from liquid into a gel, which not only lead to filling of voids in folds and wrinkles but also provide a powerful regenerative matrix that releases platelets’ growth factors in a physiological controlled slow manner that enhances tissue regeneration in a better way than PRP. In addition, the enrichment of platelets in these two products are not the same. In PRP, the platelets are enriched two to four times above the physiological concentrations available in blood and PRF contains all the platelets with no elimination of the powerful regenerative matrix (fibrin) in addition to a rich source of growth factors. Research explains that Fibrin functions as a matrix that traps the platelets and controls their release of growth factors “very slowly and continuously over a time period of more than one week”. Growth factors release rate into the target tissue is important for tissue receptors to respond over a prolonged period of time following treatment.

“It’s not the amount of growth factors that’s the most important, but it is released rate into the site. To treat severe infection, antibiotics can be injected drop by drop in an IV perfusion, ensuring that a stable concentration is maintained. This is the same in PRF biology—to obtain the most important function a stable concentration must be maintained. The best is a drop-by-drop infusion”. Platelet growth factors in a fibrin scaffold is the first response to injury observed in all human tissue. Thus, the applications of PRF for healing and regeneration is not limited only to skin. Accelerated healing, new blood vessels and proliferation of cells producing collagen (fibroblasts) have been well demonstrated in biomedical research investigating the basic functions of this regenerative products. The vast clinical applications have been well documented in the literature by peer reviewed systematic reviews, Dr. Trigg will discuss with you upon consultation how PRF could be used sole or in combination with other treatment to address your aesthetic regenerative concerns from skin rejuvenation to tissue regeneration.

In the course of treatment to re-establish collagen production, PRF is injected into deep and fine lines to soften their appearance and provide some volume. The PRF growth factors activates the skin’s collagen production which continue to produce collagen for an extended time after each injection. Consequently the skin’s collagen production will continue to reactivate generating results that can last several months.

PRF can be injected or used with micro-needling into the face – under eyes, forehead lines, crow’s feet, lip lines, laugh lines, cheeks and marionette lines.

  • Reduction of facial wrinkles/aging skin
  • Reduce pore size
  • Reduce/remove brown spots from sun damage or melasma
  • Improves dry or oily facial skin.
  • Improve dark circles under the eye
  • Diminish acne scarring and stretch mark, and rosacea

PRF is performed in a series of three or four treatments, spaced four (4) to six (6) weeks apart. The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after six weeks from initial treatment. Long-term effects, such as skin tightening, collagen production and enhanced skin quality, may take up to three (3) to four (4) months to be noticed and can last from six to 12 months.

HOW DOES IT WORK & THE BENEFITS?

PRF can be injected or used with microneedling into the face – under eyes, forehead lines, crow’s feet, lip lines, laugh lines, cheeks and marionette lines.
