Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) are the most natural way to rejuvenate the skin using your own body’s blood and triggering your body to go through its repair, healing and rebuilding process stimulating new cell growth and healing the damaged tissue. During this process the body triggers new collagen and elastin production essential for natural anti-aging as these generally only decline with aging. This treatment will give you healthier, firmer, tighter, and more youthful looking skin.

PRP and PRF Injections: What You Can Expect From Both

The purpose of both PRP and PRF injections is to use platelet-rich plasma to introduce platelets and growth factors into your skin. In addition, these treatments ramp up collagen production to give you fresh, young skin. This is important because the slowdown of collagen production that occurs naturally in all people after age 20 is one of the top causes for the appearance of aging skin. Both treatments offer a natural, chemical-free way to turn back the clock.

Here’s a look at the shared benefits offered by both PRP and PRF treatments:

  • New collagen and elastin production
  • Overall tissue rejuvenation and regeneration
  • Reductions in the appearance of acne scars
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Pore reductions
  • Reductions in wrinkles and fine lines
  • Correction of dark spots or hyperpigmentation
  • Erasure of stretch marks
  • Correction of sun damage
  • Reductions in skin sagging and laxity

You might be wondering why PRP and PRF injection are considered to be separate treatments when they produce such similar results. The difference between them rests in how long you have to wait to see your results. With PRP injections, you’re getting faster results because this method releases platelets and growth factors more quickly. PRF injections take slightly longer to become noticeable. However, the benefit of PRF is that you’re getting longer, sustained results with more blood flow due to a slow release of platelets and growth factors. Your body simply has more time to utilize the growth factors.

What Happens During PRP and PRF Treatments?

PRP and PRF are both considered natural, well-tolerated treatments that utilize your body’s own platelets and growth factors to create fresh, beautiful skin that truly turns back the clock on a biological level. Both procedures begin with a blood draw. Once blood is taken on the day of your appointment, it is immediately placed into a centrifuge to separate plasma and white blood cells from red blood cells to create a thick concentration of platelets. When doing PRF versus PRP, PRF is separated using a slightly different angle with a lower spin rate than PRP to create a thicker concentration within the vial. Next, the platelet-rich material is injected back into your own skin. Clients seeking deep rejuvenating and corrective results may benefit from booking a series of three treatments over the span of three to six weeks for best results. There’s generally no concern about infections, rejections, or complications with PRP and PRF injections because you’re simply injecting your own blood back into your body. This means that PRP and PRF can be good options for people who have concerns about allergic reactions with fillers and injectables.

Frequently Asked Questions

During this procedure a sample of you own blood is drawn into a tube. We then take the tube of your blood, and it is spun in a centrifuge. PRP or PRF will separate from other impurities and is then injected or can be combined with Microneeding directly needling it into the skin.

The biggest difference lies in how your blood is collected and how it is spun in the centrifuge. With PRP, your blood is spun at a much higher speed which will completely separate the plasma layer. With PRF your blood spins much slower and for a shorter period, resulting in fewer damaged cells, a higher concentration of healing platelets, and it triggers more blood flow and spreads more slowly when administered allowing your body to take advantage of these growth factors for approximately one week post injections.

PRF can deliver 8-10 times more growth factors, stem cells, and fibrin than PRP can. Another notable difference is that PRP tubes have additives within the PRP tubes (anticoagulants). These additives help to thin the blood and prevent it from clotting during injections. Its additives and faster spin times allows its growth factors to remain active for approximately 24 hours post. PRF once spun and separated must be injected quickly as it will clot off sooner since it does not have any of these additives within the tube.

Typically, with PRP and PRF you will see results in 4-9 months, although results are variable from person to person. It is also recommended that you complete a series, completing a series will yield in more noticeable results.

Results from PRP and PRF treatments are expected to be long- lasting, although results vary from number of treatments completed in a series and from person to person.

The number of treatments vary depending on multiple factors, but on average, we recommend at least 3-4 sessions separated by 4-6 weeks, and then recommend 1-2 treatments per year for maintenance.

For injections, bruising and swelling is always possible and can vary from person to person. We do recommend avoiding injections within 2 weeks of any major events or vacations.
For Microneeding, the recovery is typically 2-3 days with a sunburnt/reddish color of your skin, no peeling but occasionally flaking
