Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a medical procedure that uses small injections of your body’s platelets and plasma. Platelets are the blood cells that your body uses to heal itself. Platelet-rich means plasma that has an extra concentration of these blood cells. This treatment encourages your body to heal and promotes cell reproduction. This procedure can heal sports injuries and muscles, promote hair growth, and rejuvenate the skin.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a slightly different version of the platelet-rich plasma treatment (PRP) but requires a blood draw. Fibrin is an insoluble protein that plays a role in your body’s natural healing process and is essential for blood clotting. PRF is generated using your body’s plasma, white blood cells and fibrin. 15 minutes after being drawn from the body, these natural materials turn into a gel. This process is immediate when injected into the skin, making it the perfect natural formula for facial treatments.
