PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN - PRF TREATMENT
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a new generation treatment in blood therapies. It focuses on natural healing properties found within the body. PRF Treatment is a completely safe and natural solution for most skin problems, hair loss and now we are finding it is able to reverse the signs of aging!
WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN?
Platelet-Rich Fibrin or PRF is a technology that uses your own body’s natural and powerful healing proteins and concentrated growth factors to rejuvenate skin, treat hair loss, and speed up recovery. With a simple blood draw, a high concentration of natural growth factors in your blood can be collected and used for enhanced facial esthetics.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRF AND PRP TREATMENT?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the first-generation platelet concentrate. It is known as the “vampire facial” as it uses the patient’s own blood to treat the skin. It involves placing the blood sample in a centrifuge and spinning it at high speed. However, this procedure requires anti-clotting additives that can compromise the PRP’s potential benefits.
Meanwhile, Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) or “true blood therapy” has become a popular alternative for PRP. It is considered an advanced version of PRP with far more superior effects; studies show that PRF is three times more effective than PRP even without chemical additives. Since no additives are used, it forms a “super” blood clot with significantly higher concentrations of regenerative cells and growth factors that can stimulate healing. This results in a facial esthetics method that reduces the signs of aging, lessens scarring, and treats hair loss.
PRF Treatments we offer at F.A.T.
PRF Microchanneling - In this treatment we will use your liquid stem cells (PRF) topically with our microneedling service. We recommend adding this service to your current tox and skincare regimen to promote healthy, glowing, youthful skin.
PRF EZ Gel for Volume Restoration - In this treatment we will heat your liquid stem cells (PRF) to create a gel-like substance and then inject it into the dermis in the areas you are missing volume. Two to three treatments are recommended for optimal results. May take 4-6 weeks to notice the full effect of this treatment. We can also combine this with HA filler to yield a more immediate "fill" effect while the PRF works its magic to repair and restore the tissue.
PRF to Brighten and Restore - In this treatment we use a combination of your liquid stem cells and the gel we create from them and inject it into select areas of the dermis. The new tissue growth and new nerve endings generated in this treatment work together to promote stronger, brighter and more even skin tone.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A PRF TREATMENT
Here’s what to expect when you visit a Facial Aesthetics Team for a PRF treatment:
First, we will draw a small amount of your blood through a virtually painless procedure.
Your blood will be processed in a centrifuge and spun slowly to produce PRF, ensuring that the blood will not separate as much as PRP.
PRF Collection & Injection:
The PRF will be collected from the vial through a syringe and injected into the treatment area OR
Turning PRF into a Gel for Subdermal Injection:
The PRF will undergo a heating process to thicken the liquid and create a gel substance like that of a hyaluronic acid filler. The gel PRF will be mixed with the liquid PRF and together this will yield the perfect all- natural filler, safe for any client!
