What is PRP & PRF?

PRP/PRF is a cosmetic treatment. It uses components of your own blood (platelet rich plasma or fibrinogen) to accelerate the natural production of collagen and elastin. This provides overall skin rejuvenation. It can be directly injected into areas of concern. It may also be used topically during procedures like microneedling and laser therapy. Major benefits include skin tightening, increased healing, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhancement of skin tone and texture, reduced appearance of scars. It has even been used for hair regrowth.

How does PRP & PRF work?

The first step to PRP & PRF treatments is collecting the platelet rich plasma or fibrinogen. After a quick blood draw, your blood will then be centrifuged. This separates the distinct layers. When spun at a very high speed, the red blood cells will collect into the bottom of the tube and the top mixture (platelets, white blood cells, and a small amount of stem cells) will be the PRP. PRF is spun at a lower speed to collect even more stem cells and white blood cells. Once the blood is separated, your Synerchi nurse will either inject or microneedle the PRP or PRF into the various spots on the face, neck, or scalp that contain damaged tissue.

What does PRP or PRF treat?

The most common treatment areas for direct PRP & PRF injections are under the eyes, nasolabial folds, and the scalp. When PRP or PRF is injected under the eyes, it helps improve the appearance of fine lines, tighten the skin, and reduce darkness and hollowing. PRP & PRF also help increase blood flow to the scalp, regenerating new hair follicles for increased growth. PRP & PRF can also be used either during or after microneedling or laser treatments. It increases the benefits of skin tightening, promotes additional collagen and elastin production, and decreases healing time.
