…The next generation of ‘vampire’ facials – more efficient, more beneficial, purer…
The blood concentrates usage is becoming very popular in anti-aging and medical aesthetics fields. The treatment is suitable for both men and women and helps them achieve a fresher and more youthful look using only their own cells. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a revolutionary step in natural skin regeneration and rejuvenation.
Many places in the GTA offer the already very popular PRP procedure. PRF, though, is not performed by many. It requires great knowledge and practice, and exceptional technique.
MDA Medical Aesthetics Inc. is one of very few places in the GTA to use Platelet Rich Fibrin and has the most experience in applying PRF for natural skin care regeneration.
PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, a newer procedure, which has evolved out of the PRP therapy method and has gone few steps further. Blood is drawn quickly into special tubes without any preservatives or anticoagulants, and it is then centrifuged immediately. The resulting product is a ‘vibrant clot’, which needs the virtuousness of a great injector, as the procedure has to be performed within a short time frame.
There are many reasons to choose PRF treatment:
First, the injected material is your own blood, without anticoagulants or any other chemicals.
Second, as it takes a different speed while centrifuged, the ‘vibrant clot’ contains more white blood cells, which are extremely important as they release Growth Factors, which are crucial for healing, collagen production and skin regeneration.
Third, there are more substantial amounts of stem cells and platelets, being of great importance for skin regeneration. The tube where the blood is collected contains no anticoagulant. Therefore, after the plasma has been injected into the area that is being treated, it forms white blood cell and platelet-rich fibrin scaffold.
Fourth, the growth factors are released slower, which allows the skin to benefit more from them and for longer period of time.
And last, but not least, the ‘vibrant clot’ stays in the skin for some time, and acts as a ‘filler’, until the first signs of skin improvement start to show
When any injury occurs in the human body, a complicated healing process takes place, where, through a collective-stage process, the biological scaffold, called Fibrin, is formed. The platelets that circulate in the blood rapidly bind to the Fibrin scaffold. When this happens, the cells activate and start releasing growth factors, thus triggering the healing process by forming new collagen, skin cells, and blood vessels.
