Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
100% Natural Skin Rejuvenation in San Francisco
PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, a concentrate of your own cells, used as an organic alternative to synthetic solutions. In the past this procedure would have been compared to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) but PRF is unique because of its slow short centrifugation and absence of anti-coagulant or synthetic additive. This process will keep the growth factors more active for a longer period which contributes to the rejuvenation process. Similar to PRP, this is the perfect alternative for those patients looking for an organic approach to treat the first signs of aging.
What Can PRF Treat?
- Dark circles
- Acne scarring
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Tear trough and deep folds
- Brown spots (face, neck and décolleté)
- Volume loss and symmetry adjustment
The procedure of Platelet Rich Fibrin Skin Rejuvenation is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Blood Draw
One vial of blood is drawn from the patient to fill at 13ml tube.
The blood is placed in a special centrifuge and spun.
- Collect concentrate
After spinning, the PRF is carefully harvested from the top of the vial into the syringe and used immediately
How Long Do PRF Results Last?
PRF generally is a series of treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Long term benefits, such as enhanced skin quality, collagen production and skin tightening may take up to 3-4 months to be noticed and can last from 6-12 months. The initial increase in volume will last 1-3 weeks. It can be used in conjunction with micro-needling and dermal fillers.
