What is PRF Facial Injection Therapy

PRF is a high concentration of platelets containing fundamental protein growth factors that contribute to healing. This platelet rich fibrin is used in aesthetics to regenerate the skin, improve texture and discoloration. Our West Palm Beach PRF injections work differently than other cosmetic filler injections. The injections of the PRF work to stimulate cell turnover, increasing your own collagen and elastin, resulting in a natural, healthy skin appearance. By using the patient’s own blood there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or rejection

What to expect during and following PRF Facial Injection Therapy

The practitioner will draw an amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. Numbing cream may be applied to the face to help minimize the discomfort of the injections.

Depending upon the area that is treated, injections take approximately 15-30 minutes. There is no recovery or down-time after the procedure. You may resume most of your daily activities. Most injections are performed in a series of 2-3 sessions spaced about 1-2 months apart.

Full results are seen 6 weeks after treatment with long lasting results, although patient’s can see a noticeable difference in skin texture and tone after only 3 weeks. Once desired effects are achieved, patients may need touch-up treatments once or twice a year.
