Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), frequently referred to as the “vampire facial” has become popular in the aesthetic world due to its proven results. A new treatment immerging of late is the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) for both microneedling and direct injection. Compared to PRP, PRF has a higher concentration of platelets, fibrin, white blood cells as well as stem cells.
Fibrin is what platelets bind to as they circulate in your blood. When platelets bind to fibrin, they release growth factors which accelerates tissue healing and boosts skin regenerative processes (e.g., new collagen formation).
With a simple blood draw, a concentration of natural growth factors in your own blood can be collected and used to stimulate new collagen growth, as well as treat a variety of common skin concerns (e.g., acne scars, hyperpigmentation, large pores, fine lines/wrinkles).
The best thing is it’s all natural! The absence of additives in the blood collection tubes produce a 100% natural and unmodified form of fibrin which is proven to release a significantly higher concentration of natural growth factors over a longer period of time. This results in more youthful looking results that extend far beyond the initial treatment.
