PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatments, have been performed for years. There is evidence that it supports wound healing and collagen stimulation. In aesthetics we use PRP or PRF as an anti-aging concept. The Platelet-rich plasma uses your own blood to promote collagen production and trigger growth factors which can aid in rejuvenating the skin.

PRP or PRF can be combined with microneedling techniques as a topical application or injection techniques for facial rejuvenation.

PRF (platelet rich fibrin) treatments are similar to PRP in that your own blood is used and centrifuged without an added anticoagulant so that the fibrin is retained in the treatment. Fibrinogen is a protein that aids in the clotting process and wound healing. Some may consider it as a boosted version of PRP. It is centrifuged or spun at a slower speed retaining fibrinogen and decreasing platelet separation, this potentially keeps more of the growth factors and stem cells intact.

What is the Mechanism of PRP and PRF

Blood contains plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets help our blood clot and produce growth factor proteins essential for healing. PRP procedures use platelets from your blood to help heal and renew your skin. Growth factors are critical for our skin to keep it looking plump & full of elastin.

Procedure: A small vial of blood is drawn into a tube. The tube is then spun in a centrifuge at a certain speed to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the red and white blood cells. (PRF is spun at slower speeds.) The PRP or PRF layer which is concentrated with growth factors is separated and is used for the application of skin rejuvenation.

The PRP or PRF is applied topically or used in combination with microneedling for better absorption.

Who is a Candidate for PRP or PRF?

Candidates for PRP or PRF are those that have fine lines, sun damage, discoloration or baggy eyelids. It is effective in all skin types and ages. PRP is a nice option for individuals who want a treatment with low risk and great results.
