WHAT IS A PRF TREATMENT?
A PRF Treatment is an aesthetic solution harnessing the power of your own blood to rejuvenate deflated cheeks, enhance skin tone, address under-eye hollows, and combat hair loss. This approach utilizes platelet-rich fibrin to instigate a healing response within the skin at a cellular level, ensuring a revitalized and radiant complexion.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
The perfect candidate for a PRF treatment is someone seeking natural rejuvenation without opting for fillers or invasive procedures. Whether combating signs of aging, enhancing skin texture, addressing hair loss, or accelerating wound healing, the goal is to achieve holistic revitalization through this non-invasive and natural approach.
HOW IT'S DONE:
During a PRF Treatment, your blood undergoes a precise centrifugation to isolate the PRF from other blood components. The concentrated PRF is then delicately transferred into a syringe, ready to be skillfully injected into your skin.
RESULTS, RECOVERY, FREQUENCY
Experience no downtime with a PRF Treatment. Schedule a series of treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart for optimal results. Enjoy the benefits lasting 1-4 weeks between sessions. Witness long-term effects like skin tightening, collagen production, and enhanced skin quality emerging gradually over 3-4 months, with results that can endure for 6-12 months.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Swelling and bruising at the injection site is normal after a PRF Treatment.
You can expect to feel the fibrin clot under the skin. This will slowly dissolve over 5-7 days.
For injections: Come in as is! You will be numbed in office.
For microneedling: A numbing prescription will be sent to you. Apply it 45-60 minutes before your appointment.
Avoid applying ice or heat to the treated area for 72 hours after your procedure
Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen for one week
Blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins for 3-4 days post-procedure should be avoided (Fish oil, CoQ10, Turmeric)
You may shower after your procedure but don’t take a hot bath or go to a sauna for the first few days post-procedure
Avoid aggressive washing of the treated area.
