WHAT IS PRF or the new age PRP treatment???

 WHAT IS PRF or the new age PRP treatment???

(PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin): The Ultimate Blood Concentrate)

The use of blood concentrates is becoming more popular in medical aesthetics to help men and women achieve a younger and fresher look by using their own cells. PRF is the next step in the evolution of natural skin and hair rejuvenation.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is the second generation treatment after Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRF is a natural solution that can treat areas in the face that show the first signs of aging like under-eye hollows, deflated cheeks and the scalp for hair restoration.
Harvested PRP has platelets, fibrin and white blood cells, which helps achieve wound healing, collagen production and improved elasticity. PRF contains a very high concentration of white blood cells, fibrin and a small number of stem cells found circulating in our bloodstream. PRF becomes a gel after 15 to 20 minutes of being isolated and immediately upon being injected into the face or scalp. This process allows it to be used for cosmetic volume and hair restoration.

How Is PRF Obtained?

1.  First, we do a simple blood draw into tubes.
2.  The tubes are then centrifuged for 5 minutes.
3.  The tubes are taken out of the centrifuge and the top portions of the centrifuged tubes are drawn up to obtain the PRF for clinical treatment.

How Is PRF Different From Traditional Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

The blood that is collected for PRF is spun in a special low-speed centrifuge to isolate the platelets and white blood cells from the red blood cells. The reason the centrifuge is spun at much higher rate to obtain the PRP is to eliminate all Red Blood Cells (RBC) by pushing them down with gravitational force. This is a good idea; however, by spinning the tube too fast for too long we also eliminate the good cells that are necessary.

The tubes are 100% Natural and devoid of any anticoagulant or additives. As a result, fibrinogen molecules can be converted to thrombin into fibrin during the blood clot formation.
Since there is no anticoagulant in the tube that the blood is collected, the plasma actually forms a platelet and white blood cell-rich fibrin scaffold once injected into the treatment area. The fibrin clot allows for a much slower and longer release of the growth factors and cytokines (up to 1 week versus few hours with PRP), again resulting in more clinical results.

Since the blood is spinning at very low g-force to obtain the PRF, the platelet recovery is close to 100% with the PRF.  We are also using only 1/10th of the volume collected. Hence, PRF contains more platelets per mcL than PRP. Additionally, PRF also has leukocytes (WBC) & mesenchymal stem cells, unlike PRP, resulting in more potential clinical results.

How Does PRF Work?

Fibrin is a biological scaffold that forms in response to an injury anywhere in the body. Platelets circulating in the blood will bind to a scaffold of fibrin. When platelets bind to the fibrin scaffold, they become activated and release growth factors, which start the wound healing process by creating new skin cells, collagen and blood vessels. By injecting PRF into an area on the face or scalp, a controlled inflammatory response is created, which kickstarts new cell growth and collagen production.
How Is PRF Used?
The prepared PRF is immediately ready for injection into the face to fill facial folds and wrinkles, to plump the hollows under the eyes and dark circles, and to improve skin tone and texture. The PRF can also be injected into the scalp to aid with hair restoration and growth.  

How Does PRF Treat The Under-eye Loose Skin And Dark Circles?

The skin under the eyes is one of the thinnest skin on our body. It can be one of the first areas that show signs of aging.  PRF is one of the ideal treatments that improves this area and can be a better option than heat-based skin tightening devices.
PRF can also enhance the results of fillers under the eyes. Injecting fillers under the eyes can instantly improve the hollowness under the eyes and is a fabulous treatment to instantly rejuvenate this area. However, too much fillers under the eyes can make the eyes look puffy or cause a bluish tinge if injected too superficially. Also, it can be very difficult to treat the dark circles only with fillers. Injecting PRF in additional to the fillers can significantly enhance the results of the fillers by tightening the loose skin under the eyes and improving the dark circles.

What is the success rate of PRP or PRF?
 A 2017 study in Italy found male patients had increased hair and density in areas where doctors used PRP/PRF therapy.
We believe that it takes a minimum of three months to see an improvement. After that time, most of our patients – both male and female have regrown 30% to 40% of the hair they've lost.
