PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin)

PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) is an advanced skincare treatment that uses the healing properties of one’s blood to rejuvenate the skin and restore tissues. It involves drawing blood from a patient and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate fibrin and platelets. The resulting substance, rich in growth factors, is applied or injected into the targeted areas of the skin. PRF treatment can address various skin issues, including wrinkles, scars, and under-eye hollows. Applying it to the scalp can also stimulate hair growth.

Benefits of PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin)


People with fine lines and wrinkles or hair thinning issues are good candidates for PRF. It is also suitable for enhancing skin texture and healing scars.

The results of PRF gradually appear over several weeks as the growth factors stimulate tissue healing and regeneration. Optimal results usually occur after multiple sessions.

The effects of PRF can last up to a year or more. Regular follow-up treatments can help maintain and extend the benefits of PRF.

PRF has minimal downtime. There may be mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites, but these typically resolve quickly.

To prevent bruising, it is essential to stay hydrated before treatment and avoid using blood-thinning medications. As a precaution after treatment, you should refrain from strenuous exercise and direct sunlight for a few days.

During PRF treatment, your arm will be pricked to take a small blood sample. Afterward, the blood undergoes centrifugation to concentrate the platelets and fibrin. The PRF is then injected or applied topically to the targeted area. Typically, the procedure lasts about an hour, including preparation and treatment time.
