PRF Therapy Q&A

What is PRF therapy?

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) therapy is a treatment that utilizes anti-aging components from your blood to transform your skin. There are many powerful healing proteins in your skin, and experts are beginning to harness their abilities for your benefit with treatments like PRF therapy. 

PRF is similar to platelet-rich plasma (PRP), its predecessor. One key difference is that PRP treatments require anti-clotting additives, which may compromise the regenerative benefits. PRF is more advanced and seems to have more benefits.

In fact, some studies show it to be three times more effective than PRP for their intended purposes. 

During your consultation at CynSational Aesthetics, Ms. Sanchez evaluates your health and makes sure you can safely go through the PRF therapy process. She also makes sure the treatment can meet or exceed your specific goals. 

What are the results of PRF therapy?

PRF therapy can treat or minimize certain facial features and has other benefits for your skin’s health too. You can use PRF therapy to stimulate healing within your skin and treat age-related features like:

  • Age spots
  • Forehead lines
  • Sunken under-eye areas
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Thinning or wrinkled lips
  • Jowls
  • A sagging neck
  • Acne scars

Overall, your skin becomes firmer, brighter, and smoother after treatment with PRF therapy. It’s also possible to treat hair loss with PRF in many cases, but anti-aging uses are its primary purpose. 

What should I expect during treatment with PRF?

Once you’ve had a consultation and know that PRF therapy can provide the benefits you need, you can prepare accordingly for your appointment. Ms. Sanchez gives you the necessary instructions to follow as the date gets closer.

When you first come in, Ms. Sanchez draws a sample of your blood in a pain-free procedure. She then centrifuges the blood, which causes the cells and other components to separate into layers inside their container. The centrifugation process is slower with PRF because it doesn’t separate the cells as much. 

Ms. Sanchez then collects the newly formed PRF from your blood sample. She transfers it from its original vial into a syringe and injects it into the treatment areas.
