What is PRF?

beautiful face with healthy skin close up smile happy face Some of the top athletes in the world (as well as athletes who are weekend warriors) use PRF to help them heal from injuries – but PRF can also be used cosmetically, to help give saggy, wrinkled skin a whole new youthful look. Read on for more information about PRF, what it is, and what it can do for you.

What can PRF therapy do for you?

“PRF” stands for “platelet rich fibrin.” PRF contains some stem cells and a very high concentration of white blood cells and fibrin – these work together to form a “scaffold” that releases growth factors, which create collagen and new skin cells.

In a PRF therapy procedure, your own blood is drawn. This blood is processed to separate the PRF from the rest of the blood, which is then injected into the problem area. Because PRF is taken from your own blood, you don’t have to worry about an adverse or allergic reaction. Often, other fillers (such as hyaluronic acid) are added after PRF, depending on the results you would like to see.

PRF therapy is performed in a series of treatments, typically about 6 to 8 weeks apart, and although the results can vary (especially if you get a filler as well), many patients see improvements to their skin that last up to a year.

After a treatment, you may have some mild pain, swelling, soreness, and bruising, but these can be treated with ice and a topical anesthetic.

What can PRF be used for?

PRF therapy can make skin look youthful and smooth. It can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars, minimize pores, and reduce the appearance of blemishes. It can improve the skin’s tone and texture and can plump up the area under the eyes. It can help to give volume to thin lips and can help to remove lines around the mouth. It can even be used to restore hair.

PRF is a quick, easy way to grow new, youthful looking skin and to correct some common imperfections. Call Zinney Facial Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Center in Marble Hill, GA, for a PRF consultation. Call 678-717-4969 today!
