What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) uses your body’s own plasma to stimulate the skin’s ability to produce collagen, which means the treatment is ideal for everyone regardless of skin type. Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood, which is rich in growth factors and proteins and provides a medium for red and white blood cells and platelets to circulate throughout the body. Platelets are blood cells that cause blood clots and other necessary growth healing functions.

These treatments are safe for all skin types and tones and can be a great option for patients looking to leverage the body’s remarkable ability to heal and rejuvenate itself.

PRP also plays a significant role in hair restoration. At Koniver Aesthetics, we use PRP with and without exosomes to treat hair loss with great success.

What is Platelet Rich Fibrin?

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) uses your body’s own fibrin to stimulate the skin’s ability to produce collagen. This process uses is a fibrin matrix of platelet cytokines, growth factor and cells used to help promote skin rejuvenation. PRF gives a slower release of growth factors – up to one week instead of a few minutes with PRP – and offers progressive benefits of new collagen growth and increased circulation.

Fibrin forms in response to injury. Platelets bind to the fibrin “scaffold,” become activated and release growth factors from tiny granules that create new skin cells, collagen and blood vessels. Areas most popularly injected with PRF are under eyes, fine lines around lips, nasal labial folds and marionette lines. PRF naturally rejuvenates, lifts and corrects.

Like with PRP, a syringe of blood is drawn, usually from the arm, while the face is numbing. The blood is then put into a centrifuge, which separates the PRF from other components of the blood. A slower and longer spinning process separates the fibrin and growth factors from the red blood cells, which affords the opportunity to keep all active cells and growth factors intact for immediate use.

Treatment Options

Platelet Rich Plasma & Microneedling

This popular combination rejuvenates the skin by promoting the growth of collagen and elastin, making it more youthful, tighter, and smoother.

In this treatment, PRP is massaged into the treatment area after a microneedling procedure. The microneedling treatment creates small controlled micro punctures or micro channels in the skin, allowing for enhanced penetration of the PRP.

When using PRP + microneedling for skin rejuvenation, our patients report improvements in fine lines, skin texture, hydration, radiance, and acne or surgical scarring.

Platelet Rich Fibrin & Sculptra®

Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable collagen stimulator that addresses the loss of collagen, an underlying cause of facial aging, to result in a more youthful appearance. Sculptra® is a bio-friendly injectable made from Poly/Lactic acid that can be used as a targeted therapy to address specific areas of the face and body that lack structure and volume.

When Sculptra® is used in combination with PRF, the result is an immediate lift and a more youthful structure in areas such as under the eyes, the cheeks, and around the lip. This combination gives you the progressive benefits of PRF, which is greater new collagen growth and increased circulation over time – improving structure, volume and lift in one procedure.

What to Expect

During the treatment, a syringe of blood is drawn, usually from the arm, while the face is numbing. The blood is then put into a centrifuge, which separates the PRP/PRF from other components of the blood. Once you’re numb, your practitioner will inject your own plasma/fibrin back into the area being treated. This process usually take about 30 minutes, though it can vary depending on the area you’re targeting.

The treatment area may be sore for two or three days, and you may notice some bruising. Acetaminophen can help ease discomfort.

Treatment Guidelines

Follow your practitioner’s instructions regarding medications that prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen or blood thinners. You should not take aspirin unless a doctor has prescribed it, but acetaminophen is fine for a headache.

When PRP is used to treat hair loss, wash your hair the day of treatment and do not use any products. A clean hat should be brought to the appointment and worn after the procedure to protect the area.

Because both PRP and PRF therapies involve drawing blood, it is important to eat a meal before your procedure to avoid lightheadedness.

Results

The effect of treatment is most noticeable after at least six months. Repeat treatments may be necessary to maintain optimal results.

Platelet Rich Plasma/Fibrin: FAQs

Is PRP or PRF considered a non-invasive procedure?

PRP and PRF are non-invasive, safe facial rejuvenation treatments. They are autologous which means they use blood plasma/fibrin from your own body to rejuvenate the skin.

What are the key differences between PRP and PRF?

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is more concentrated with growth factors and takes longer to release, but results last longer. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is better for treating areas where larger volumes are needed. PRP is recommended for treating hair loss because of the volume needed to achieve optimal results.
