Platelet therapy is increasingly being used in aesthetic procedures. PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) is a component of the blood that is rich in fibrin, fibrinogen, and a small number of stem cells. Blood platelets typically travel through the body and bind to a fibrin matrix. Platelets activate when they attach to the fibrin scaffold, releasing growth factors from microscopic ‘granules.’ These growth factors kick off the production of new skin cells, collagen, and blood vessels, which are essential to the wound healing process. PRF injections can be used in conjunction with microneedling to rejuvenate the skin and even encourage hair growth.
Platelet-rich fibrin, or PRF, is a cell concentrate that can be used as a natural substitute for synthetic solutions. PRF is usually compared to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), although PRF is unique due to its slow short centrifugation and lack of anti-coagulant or synthetic components. The PRF treatment promotes rejuvenation by extending the growth factors’ active periods. If you’re seeking an organic alternative to PRP for treating the early symptoms of aging, this is it.
