What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)?

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a specialized concentration extracted from a patient’s blood fibrin, applied through injection or microneedling to rejuvenate areas such as the under eyes, smile lines, neck, and scalp for hair revitalization. Often dubbed “liquid gold” for its abundant growth factors, PRF serves as a revolutionary skin therapy. It triggers collagen synthesis and activates wound repair, revitalizing cells from within!

Moreover, PRF lacks anticoagulants, forming a natural fibrin matrix filled with platelets, white blood cells, and diverse growth factors. This matrix fosters a sustained release of these vital elements, fostering natural healing and tissue regeneration.

The Result of PRF Injections

Unlike fillers, which offer instant results, PRF injections produce more subtle outcomes, gradually manifesting and enduring longer. Notably, while under-eye fillers may not suit everyone, PRF injections are generally more inclusive.

While under-eye fillers mainly enhance volume without addressing concerns like dark circles or thinning skin, PRF offers comprehensive benefits. It leverages the body’s growth factors, ensuring a natural appearance. Typically, PRF injection results vary based on individual responses, treatment area, and frequency. Typically, PRF effects can last up to 2 years.

Benefits for the Under-Eye Areas Reduction of Dark Circles:

  • PRF injections can enhance blood flow and improve tissue quality, minimizing the appearance of dark circles.
  • Tissue Regeneration: PRF’s growth factors stimulate collagen production, rejuvenating skin texture and elasticity.
  • Volume Restoration: PRF subtly plumps the under-eye area, reducing hollowness and deep tear troughs.
  • Natural Approach: Derived from the patient’s blood, PRF minimizes the risk of allergic reactions or complications.
  • Long-lasting Results: PRF’s natural fibrin matrix ensures sustained growth factor release, offering prolonged benefits.

Benefits for Hair Growth:

  • Enhances blood flow to hair follicles PRF serum promotes increased blood circulation to cells and hair follicles. Enhanced circulation supplies the body with more nutrients and essential components for repairing damaged or weakened cells.
  • Enhances hair growth and thickness PRF stimulates hair follicles with growth factors, reinforcing follicular strength and promoting the production of thicker, stronger hair strands.
