Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is an alternate variation of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRF can help treat areas in the face that are notorious for showing the first signs of aging, such as the under-eye area, sullen cheeks as well as in scalp for effective hair restoration.
The team at Kumar Aesthetics Institute offers both PRF and PRP as we understand the unique benefits they offer, each one effectively repairing specific areas of the human body. Our team of practitioners is expertly trained in the extraction and administering of Platelet-Rich-Fibrin therapy. We provide an expert diagnosis and treatment protocol uniquely designed to help manage your condition.
Who Is PRF For?
At Kumar Aesthetics Institute, we provide Platelet Rich Fibrin therapy for patients that are looking to:
- Increase facial volume and fullness
- Fight signs of aging, such as sunken eyes
- Boost the results of Hair Restoration procedures
How Does The PRF Procedure Work?
PRF is extracted from a small blood sample. Prior to your treatment, a small vial of blood is collected. Next, the sample is placed into a centrifuge, which is designed to separate the PRF from the remaining sample components.
After being spun, the PRF is carefully extracted from the top of the sample, into a new syringe. The isolated PRF sample is then injected into the target site, primarily to enhance facial volume, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and boost the results of hair restoration on the scalp. Kumar Aesthetics Institute has helped patients from all walks of life achieve excellent results using PRF.
The Science Behind Platelet Rich Fibrin
PRF utilizes components of your own blood – platelets, and fibrin – injected into target areas to provide a three-dimensional cellular scaffold that creates volume within the face. Fibrin acts as a mesh for the platelets to adhere to; allowing for the gradual release of growth factors resulting in the healing of facial tissue.
By injecting PRF into an area on the face or scalp, a controlled and targeted inflammatory response is created, encouraging new cell development and increased collagen production. These are two of the fundamental building blocks for healthier-looking skin, including reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
How Is PRF Different From Traditional Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
The main difference between PRF and PRP is the preparation method and the ratio of its components. PRF is spun in a special, low-speed centrifuge, designed to isolate the platelets and white blood cells from the red blood cells. PRP on the other hand, requires centrifugal force up to 6x faster, to eliminate all Red Blood Cells (RBC) from the extracted sample.
In PRF therapy, the plasma forms a fibrin scaffold out of platelets and white blood cells once injected into the treatment area. This fibrin clot allows for a much slower and longer-lasting release of growth factors and cytokines, providing the opportunity for more promising clinical results.
