Revitalizing Your Skin
What is PRF?
PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is a rich serum that contains growth factors and platelets, the components responsible for blood clots and your body’s natural healing process. PRF is derived from a sample of your blood through a centrifugal process. After drawing a sample of your blood, the doctor spins it in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasmas from the red blood cells, essentially producing a serum with a high concentration of growth factors.
PRF is used for bone and soft tissue regeneration in several medical fields due to its excellent repair and renewal capacities. However, in recent years, PRF injections have also found success in cosmetic treatments, specifically skin rejuvenation. When injected, PRF can activate skin cell regeneration, collagen production, and various other processes to heal and improve your skin quality.
About PRF for Skin Rejuvenation
PRF is an excellent treatment for skin rejuvenation because it promotes skin cell regeneration and activates your body’s collagen production capabilities. Collagen is a fibrous protein that provides structure and firmness to your skin. It’s basically the structural framework for the skin, holding it taut across your body to prevent wrinkles and fine lines. However, the aging process reduces your body’s ability to produce collagen fibers, leading to skin laxity, wrinkles, and other age-related skin concerns.
By encouraging your body to produce more collagen, PRF injections restore your skin’s youthful firmness and tautness. The collagen fibers strengthen your skin tissues and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, PRF injections also activate your body’s healing process and skin cell regeneration, replacing the old and damaged skin tissues with new and rejuvenated skin. Skin cell regeneration also helps cover up the depressions from acne scars, thus smoothing the skin’s uneven terrain.

PRF Treatment Overview
During your initial consultation, our advanced care providers carefully examine your skin, review your medical history, and discuss your aesthetic expectations to curate the ideal treatment plan. They structure the treatment and identify the injection spots based on your cosmetic goals and ideals.
Our advanced care providers collect a small sample of your blood, which is then processed in a centrifuge to isolate the PRFs. The purified PRF is then delivered into the chosen treatment areas via small injections. Our advanced care provider will deliver it on your skin. The number of injections depends on your goals.
You may experience soreness, swelling, and mild discomfort for the first few days, but the side effects will dissipate gradually. You should avoid heavy exercises or massages in the treatment area for at least 72 hours. However, you can resume normal activities as soon as you leave the clinic — there’s no downtime.
The results from PRF for skin rejuvenation will start appearing in 3 to 4 weeks after your body produces sufficient collagen fibers and elastin. The results will continue improving for several months. Your doctor may provide a schedule with follow-up treatments for optimal results.
