Newer research shows that PRF has an even higher concentration of platelets than PRP and a concentration of some white blood cells and stem cells. Higher concentrations mean there are more healing factors within PRF than seen in PRP. PRF is an all-natural solution used to treat an area in the face that shows aging signs, including undereye hollows, deflated cheeks, and the scalp for hair restoration.
PRF is produced from a blood draw in the same manner as PRP and placed inside a centrifuge designed to separate PRF from other blood components. The PRF can be used in combination with hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers, and microneedling treatments.
It takes about one and a half hours for the total procedure, similar to PRP treatment, after which you may resume normal activities. There is some social downtime due to the swelling and slight bruising that may occur. You will notice an improvement after 1 to 2 weeks.
At HerSpace MedSpa, we offer the EZPRF centrifuge system. The EZPRF tubes and centrifuge settings are designed to create a blood concentrate rich in platelets, leukocytes, and Mesenchymal stem cells. We find that using PRF at HerSpace MedSpa is giving our patients outstanding results with microneedling and injections under the eyes, nasolabial folds, jowls, and cheeks.
