PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) – The ‘Virtuoso’ of Medical Aesthetics
…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. They help men and women achieving a fresher and younger look by using their own cells. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is the next step in evolution of natural skin regeneration and rejuvenation.
Many places in GTA offer 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 GTA to use Platelet Rich Fibrin and has most experience applying PRF for natural skin care regeneration.
What does PRF mean?
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. Because there is no anticoagulant in the tube that the blood is collected to, the plasma actually forms a platelet and white blood cell-rich fibrin scaffold once injected into the treatment area.
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.
How does it work?
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. Platelets circulating in the blood rapidly bind to the Fibrin scaffold. When this happens, the cells become activated and release growth factors, which start the healing process by forming new skin cells, collagen and blood vessels.
