What is PRF?

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a technology that uses your own body’s powerful healing proteins and concentrated growth factors from the blood to naturally rejuvenate skin and speed up recovery. It is three times more effective than the previous generation of PRP.

PRF encourages collagen production, treats acne scars, stimulates hair growth, eliminates wrinkles, and tightens loose skin—all made possible by the power of a simple blood draw.

What is the Difference Between PRF and PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the first-generation platelet concentrate known as the “vampire facial” as it uses the patient’s own blood to heal and treat the skin. It involves placing the blood sample in a centrifuge and spinning it at high speed. Unfortunately, this procedure requires anti-clotting additives that can compromise the potential benefits of the PRP.

On the other hand, Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is considered an advanced version of PRP and far more superior in enhancing skin rejuvenation. Also called the “true blood therapy,” it has become a popular alternative to PRP, with studies showing that PRF is three times more effective than PRP even without chemical additives. Since no additives are used, it forms a “super” blood clot with significantly elevated concentrations of regenerative cells,  and growth factors capable of stimulating collagen and elastin. This results is a facial esthetics method that reduces the signs of aging, treats scar tissue, lessens acne scarring, and addresses hair loss.

What are the Benefits of PRF Treatment?

PRF Treatment has gained wide popularity because of its excellent healing and rejuvenating properties.  

  • Lighter and plumper skin under the eyes                          
  • Smoother skin texture and more even skin tone
  • Healthier, younger-looking skin
  • Reduced wrinkle appearance
  • Firmer and tighter skin     
  • Fewer acne scars and dark spots
  • Restored volume in the cheek areas
  • Thicker, fuller hair
What to Expect From a PRF Treatment

Here’s what to expect when you visit a CARE Esthetics clinic for PRF Treatment:

  1. Blood Extraction
    First, we will draw a small amount of your blood through a virtually painless procedure. 
  2. Blood Centrifugation
    Your blood will be processed in a centrifuge and spun slowly to produce PRF, ensuring that the blood will not separate as much as PRP.
  3.  PRF Collection & Injection
    The PRF will be collected from the vial through a syringe and injected into the treatment areas.
