REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN
PRF, or “Liquid Gold” as we like to call it, is the perfect solution to stimulate cell growth within the body. PRFM stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, which is one of the most natural ways to induce collagen. The main benefit of PRF is that is employs your body’s own cells through drawing the patient’s blood, processing it and then using it for the treatment. The amazing benefits of PRF can be used to stimulate hair growth, diminish the appearance of scarring, treat wrinkles and lines, encourage the body’s production of collagen, and much more.
In simple terms, PRF injections use your own blood to help rejuvenate your skin. It contains autologous growth factors that stimulate and enhance the healing response. PRF bears similarities to the popular PRP treatments athletes sometimes undergo for injuries and is rapidly replacing PRP because PRF contains more platelets and also contains leukocytes that accelerate the healing of soft and hard tissue. The rich concentration of cells in PRF will release growth factors over a longer period of time contributing to an even better rejuvenation process.
TREATMENT & RESULTS
The main benefit of PRF is that it employs your body’s own cells in a way to promote the health of your skin. PRF injections start with one of our technicians drawing blood which is then placed inside a centrifuge. After the blood is done spinning, the PRF becomes separated from other blood components and withdrawn from the top of the vial. Once completed, the PRF is then injected into the treatment area.
