Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

PRF is the next generation PRP.

There’s a general consensus amongst the medical community that PRF has a distinct edge over PRP. Here are some of the reasons why PRF is considered to be better than PRP:

  • Due to the lack of adding coagulants, the preparation process of PRF is more straightforward and less convoluted. It also has the advantage of not using external additives to manipulate the concentration.

  • The higher concentration of platelets (about 3 to 5 times) of PRF makes it a more potent solution.

  • PRP has more stem cells, healing factors, and has a reduced risk of blood cells experiencing trauma or damage.

 

We take a small amount of blood from your arm and then spin the blood in a centrifuge.

 

This spin separates the platelets, white blood cells and mesenchymal stem cells from the red blood cells. The resulting fluid looks like liquid gold! We then reinject the PRF back into the skin.

 

The platelets contain growth factors which stimulate collagen, the white blood cells create a controlled inflammatory response (a good thing!) and the stem cells will reproduce the collagen and elastin that has been depleted with the aging process.

 

Hollowing, crepey skin and texture are all improved over time. 2-3 treatments sessions are ideal.

Uses:

  • With microneedling as a collagen booster and to speed healing. $675

  • Under the eyes to fill hollow spaces, treat skin crepiness and reduce darkness under the eye.  (2-3 treatments needed). This treatment reduces some of the risks and complications of using filler under the eyes. We call this treatment Liquid Gold Eyes. $400

​​

  • In the lips it gives a gentle rejuvenating plump particularly for older lips that just need an anti-aging boost. Just ask for Liquid Gold Lips! $400

  • In the scalp PRF will stimulate hair growth for those with thinning hair. $400

  • Mixed with filler to boost the longevity of the filler, improve the quality of the skin and stimulate collagen. We call this our Filler/PRF Slushy because the result in the syringe looks like a strawberry slushy! $900

  • Liquid Gold Facial. As a skin quality booster over the whole face. We stamp a vial of Dysport, HA Filler and PRP with needles thinner than a hair into the skin for an airbrushed appearance. Smaller pores and reduction of fine lines contribute to the glow! $600
