There are a number of environmental and internal factors that influence how our skin ages. As we get older, our skin stops producing collagen and elastin. These proteins that are essential for maintaining firm, supple skin. As our skin gets less firm, it starts to show fine lines which eventually lead to wrinkles. Environmental factors, such as UV rays, also damage the skin, making it less able to heal itself and also leading to the appearance of darkened patches known as sunspots. While there are many products on the market that can help decrease the appearance of aging, there are very few that can help the skin heal itself and produce dramatic results from the outside in. PRF is a treatment designed to help the skin rejuvenate and restore its youthful state.
What Is PRF and How Does it Work?
The PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) treatment takes some of the most powerful healing factors available directly from your body and places them in the skin where they work to rejuvenate and restore damaged skin. Your blood contains plasma and platelets, which contain proteins involved in rejuvenation and healing. The treatment is different from PRP (platelet-rich plasma) in that it also contains fibrin, which forms a rigid structure, allowing the plasma to clot after it’s been injected under the skin. This clotting makes sure that the plasma has time to penetrate and affect the skin much more effectively than PRP, producing far better results. The treatment promotes the formation of natural collagen in your skin, meaning that you’ll quickly see firmer, younger-looking skin after the PRF treatment.
When you book an appointment at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach, FL, one of our specialists will first have a consultation to determine what you expect and want from the treatment. They will explain how the procedure works and give you some time to raise any questions or concerns that you might have about the treatment. The specialist will then apply a numbing gel for your comfort during the procedure and will extract some of your blood. They will separate out the PRF and use a sterile needle to inject it into your treatment area. The procedure can take between 15 to 45 minutes, depending on your particular needs and the area being treated. You’ll notice results immediately, and they will persist for some months after the treatment.
