Thanks to certain growth factors and stem cells, your skin has the natural ability to heal itself gradually. However, aging tends to diminish this ability, thus causing signs of aging to appear on your face.
But, why is it that your favorite celebs don’t seem to age at all?
The answer is amazing skin rejuvenating therapies such as PRF therapy, that have been garnering massive popularity due to their countless aesthetic benefits.
Read on to discover more.
What Is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF Therapy)?
PRF therapy or Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy is a non-surgical skin rejuvenating treatment that uses special growth factors and stems cells from your own blood to trigger more dramatic regeneration results in the treated area.
It can enhance the natural healing abilities of your skin, promote tissue regeneration as well as increase skin cell turnover to make your skin look and feel healthier and rejuvenated.
What Is The Difference Between Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF Therapy) And Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP Therapy)?
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy is often confused with a similar skin rejuvenating treatment known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP therapy). However, they’re not the same.
To obtain Platelet-Rich Fibrin, your blood sample is usually spun at a low speed to extract stem cells, growth factors, immune cells as well as fibrin - an important clotting protein. In contrast, with Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, PRP serum lacks this same clotting protein.
PRF therapy can be considered a second-generation PRP therapy that can offer three times the number of growth factors allowing for enhanced facial aesthetic benefits.
What Happens During The Procedure?
The treatment is completed in two steps (i.e., extraction of PRF from your blood and injecting the resulting serum into the area/s of concern).
Once the serum is injected, it triggers the natural healing response in your skin, which then addresses and corrects common skin concerns such as acne scars, uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines, and wrinkles.
What Are The Benefits Of PRF Therapy?
PRF therapy is relatively new compared to other aesthetic procedures. However, it has taken the market by storm due to its numerous benefits, such as:
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Evens out the skin tone to make it appear brighter and more radiant
Helps you achieve smooth and supple skin by improving skin texture
Enhances natural skin elasticity
Promotes collagen production
Reduces the appearance of pores as well as minor scarring
Is It Safe?
Yes. PRF therapy is completely safe with little to no risk of side effects. Some people might experience slight bruising and swelling at the injection sites but that usually subsides within a day or two.
Since PRF is extracted from your own blood, it further reduces the risk of allergic reactions, infections, or rejection.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy can heal and rejuvenate your skin at a cellular level, making your skin look and feel evenly textured, brighter, and more youthful. However, the safety of treatment depends on the expertise of the provider as well as on maintaining a sterile environment during the procedure.
