Do you want to get rid of your lines and wrinkles? Once we age, the natural signs of aging start to appear, making us lose our confidence. Aging is a part of life, but not everyone likes it! PRP/PRF can eliminate aging signs and help you achieve a younger-looking skin!
At Maki Wellness and Medspa, PRF, or platelet-rich fibrin, is one of our therapies to help you regain your youthful appearance. PRF is similar to PRP (platelet-rich plasma), but it’s even better! Are you interested to know more about what this treatment can provide? Continue reading!
What is PRP/PRF?
PRP (PLATELET-RICH PLASMA) or PRF (PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN) is a non-invasive treatment option for enhanced function and the overall appearance of aging or damaged skin. During a PRP or PRF (for tear trough area) treatment, the patient’s blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge to separate the yellow plasma, which is 5x more concentrated in platelets than whole blood, during a PRP or PRF (for tear trough area) treatment.
Platelets secrete growth factors that aid in the body’s natural healing processes. PRP stimulates the synthesis of collagen and fibroblasts and enhances cell regeneration when injected into the skin, improving overall tone and texture and boosting the skin’s youthful appearance from the inside out.
Most patients are suitable candidates for therapy with PRP and PRF because it is a natural solution that is very safe. PRF Therapy is a standard treatment for tear troughs that focuses on safely tightening, moisturizing, and decreasing the hollows without the drawbacks of dermal fillers, which can be problematic for patients with specific hereditary or vascular issues.
What will PRP/PRF treat?
This treatment will help you solve your signs of aging. In particular, you can expect that:
- Collagen and elastin production should be increased.
- Fine lines and wrinkles will appear less prominent.
- Improve hydration while firming and tightening the skin
- Create a tone and texture that is more youthful.
Why Choose PRP/PRF?
PRP and PRF are similar in ideas and objectives, but they are not the same. Due to its ability to release growth factors over time, the platelet-rich fibrin treatment is superior and more efficient than PRP, resulting in longer-term benefits than the platelet-rich plasma procedure.
While PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a cosmetic treatment that targets the superficial layers of skin, even when done through microneedling, PRF, or the vampire facelift, is injected into the deeper layers of skin for long-term effects.
Here are reasons to consider the Maki Wellness and Medspa PRF cosmetic treatment:
Everything is Natural
PRF is a treatment that uses your platelets, one of the treatment’s most distinguishing features. Your treatment will begin with a blood draw, similar to what you would have in a lab. After that, the blood is spun to isolate the PRF (platelet-rich fibrin).
Treats acne scars and improves skin texture
Dehydration, pollution, smoking, insufficient blood flow, and a bad skincare routine are just a few elements that can harm our skin cells. All of these factors and many others can contribute to the dreaded dull skin tone, which adds years to our appearance.
PRF can give moisture to your skin and promote blood flow to combat the appearance of a tired complexion and refine skin tone by utilizing the healing powers of platelets. The platelet-rich fibrin therapy is an excellent ally in the fight against UV damage and the consequences of smoking. It encourages the skin to create more elastin, giving it a younger and smoother appearance.
PRF face injections are also an effective treatment for acne scars when used in conjunction with microneedling. While microneedling is commonly used to increase skin thickness, when paired with PRF, scars are visibly minimized. We offer various services at Maki Wellness and Medspa that can produce the best results. Based on your goals and medical history, our professionals collaborate with you to decide the best course of action.
PRF/PRP has been used in the medical field to speed up the healing process after surgical treatments such as bone grafts, dental implants, and other procedures. It can also aid in the recovery of patients who have had cosmetic surgery. PRF can be strategically injected anywhere on the face or body, resulting in an improvement in your skin’s texture, tone, discoloration, and overall health.
Eliminates Wrinkles and Folds
PRF claims and provides an enhanced skin tone with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. PRP is made by spinning the tubes slower and isolating the platelets and white blood cells from the red blood cells. In contrast, PRF is made by turning the tubes slower and separating the platelets and white blood cells from the red blood cells.
Without anticoagulants, this approach allows for a larger platelet concentration while maintaining the fibrin matrix. The fibrin matrix binds the platelets together and enables them to discharge over 7 to 10 days in the area where PRF is injected.
A slower release equates to longer-lasting results over the next few weeks. In 48 hours, you’ll notice the first evidence that your PRF therapy is working.
How many treatments should I take?
A good beginning treatment strategy is three to four treatments spaced one month apart. Because PRP works by stimulating cellular development and tissue regeneration, it can take up to 3-4 months before you notice results. PRP and PRF treatments are available as single or part of a package deal.
PRP/PRF For Skin Rejuvenation
In comparison to PRP, PRF is a 100 percent pure blood product with higher concentrations of healing platelets (platelet-rich plasma). It also produces growth factors over a longer time, all while remaining confined within your own body!
PRF is a one-of-a-kind therapy that rejuvenates your skin by utilizing your body’s healing cells. Kati has been doing and teaching PRP for years, and PRF is the next stage in the progression of stem cells and growth factors in the modern-day.
