PRF Injections For The Face

Platelet Rich Fibrin or PRF is quickly becoming an integral aspect of cosmetic treatments used for rejuvenating the skin. This procedure uses the patient’s own blood, spun at a very specific speed and duration to separate out the PRF. The growth factors found in PRF are key to helping reverse the telltale signs of aging. Compared to PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), PRF has a higher concentration of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells, and stem cells. The platelets attach to the fibrin network and release the growth factors that are responsible for creating new skin cells, collagen, and blood vessels. The growth factors in PRF are also released much slower than in PRP, which provides the added bonus of a longer-lasting anti-aging treatment!

PRF injections can naturally enhance facial volume through collagen production, increasing skin elasticity, improving skin texture and thickness, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smooth creepy skin, and improving scar appearance. The true advantage of PRF injections is the rejuvenation of skin quality. Patients may choose to have PRF injected alone or in combination with hyaluronic acid fillers.

FAQ’s – PRF Injections for the Face

What is PRF?
Platelet Rich Fibrin – PRF is a part of your blood, which contains a high concentration of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells, along with a small number of stem cells. They are like little “powerhouses” that are activated by contact with body tissues, increase blood flow and release proteins called growth factors.

What are Growth Factors?
Growth factors stimulate new collagen formation/production, improve wound healing and repair the skin. How do they do that you might ask? Growth factors activate the multipotent stem cells already in the skin, tricking them by thinking there has been an injury and new tissue is generated. The result, younger-appearing skin!

How does the PRF injection work?
The PRF – Platelet Rich Fibrin is injected below the skin into the areas where there has been a loss of volume, wrinkles and crepey skin have appeared. This natural process can sculpt a younger appearing face, stimulate collagen production without looking overdone.

What are the 2 different PRF injection options?

*PRF Facelift with (HA)Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler:

  • Blood from the patient is drawn and put in a centrifuge machine, which spins and separates into its components. After spinning, the PRF is harvested from the top of the vial into a syringe.
  • As the blood spins the injector uses HA dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, or Restylane to create a beautiful shape of the face.
  • Finally, the PRF is injected into the face to give it a rejuvenating effect. It can be injected all over the patient’s face or in specific areas of concern.
  • The benefit is an immediate increase in volume and smoothing of wrinkles.

*PRF injections without HA filler:

  • Blood from the patient is drawn and put in a centrifuge machine, which spins and separates into its components. After spinning, the PRF is harvested from the top of the vial into a syringe.
  • Then the PRF is injected into the face to give it a rejuvenating effect. It can be injected all over the patient’s face or in specific areas of concern.
  • The treatment is completely safe and the major advantage of a PRF procedure alone is that you are treated with your own body substance. It’s as natural as it gets!

When the growth factors enter the face the muti-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue.  This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

What can I expect from this treatment?
The growth factors in the PRF will improve skin quality and texture, by stimulating new collagen. It will decrease dark circles and improve the hollowness in the under-eye area, which many of us struggle with. Smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pores, and an overall rejuvenation of the face, all from your own plasma.

Who can benefit from getting a PRF “Face Injections”?
Any age group can benefit from PRF. Younger clients in their 20s and 30s will notice an improved skin quality overall, and if you suffer from acne scarring this is excellent to add on to micro needling treatments. Clients with significant signs of aging from sun exposure and collagen breakdown will see a smoothing of lines, wrinkles, crepey skin, and an increase in facial volume. Those over 40 will probably have the most benefit because it is active plasma, reduce aging issues, and it is preventative by slowing down the aging process. The effects of the procedure continue to improve for 2 to 3 months and last up to 2 years!

How often can I get PRF injections?
It is recommended that clients in the over 40 age group get a series of 3 PRF injection treatments 4-6 weeks apart. Younger patients often notice benefits from one single treatment. Once the initial series of PRF is complete, it is recommended to have one treatment per year to maintain results. Although the PRF injections are not permanent they are long-lasting.

Is it safe to drive after having PRF injections?
At The Laser Image Company, we treat clients with PRF injections for the face from Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Torrance, Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, and Los Angeles and there is no problem for them to drive after the procedure.

How much does PRF face injections cost?
PRF face injections price can be done in a single area like under the eyes for $550 and can be added to a dermal filler injection for a cost of $450.  The number of syringes of the HA filler needed to achieve that goal will be discussed with the nurse injecting the PRF before anything is started.
