Your skin is your body’s largest organ. Beauty experts around the world agree that healthy, vibrant skin is the secret to being beautiful. You’ve probably spent much time trying to restore your skin and a good deal of money on skin care products. However, most of the beauty products you’ll find at the store are packed with harmful materials.
Now there’s an all-natural way to get radiant skin by using your body’s healing properties. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a life-changing treatment that uses your blood to reverse the signs of aging. At Dontage, we service PRF to patients in Falls Church, Virginia, to help make their skin care goals a reality.
More effective than PRP
You might have heard of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and how it’s used as an anti-aging treatment. PRF is a second-generation form of PRP that focuses on using fibrin, an insoluble protein that aids the body in blood clotting and promoting your body’s healing. In both PRP and PRF, growth factors play a vital role in stimulating cellular growth and division.
PRF is more effective than PRP because it releases growth factors in your body for up to a week, while PRP only emits them for a few hours. Growth factors are responsible for encouraging youthful collagen and elastin, so the longer release time in PRF equates to dramatically better results.
How it’s done
When you come in for your PRF treatment, Waseem Garbia PA-C takes you back to one of our comfortable suites. He first explains the procedure and answers any questions you may have. Next, he draws some of your blood and places it into tubes.
Next, he centrifuges the tube for five minutes. Instead of spinning them at a high speed as is done with PRP, he uses a low G-force to isolate the white blood cells from the red blood cells. This method keeps a higher level of anti-aging blood cells intact to give you tighter skin.
Dr. Garbia takes the tubes out of the centrifuge and prepares them for your treatment. The PRF is injected into your problem areas like under eye hollows, forehead wrinkles, and jowls.
Your PRF can even be used with a microneedling treatment by replacing the growth factor serum.
Benefits of PRF
PRF is an all-natural way to regain a more youthful appearance. The skin under your eyes is one of the thinnest parts of skin on your body. PRF can improve this delicate skin more effectively than many heat-based skin tightening treatments.
PRF can address skin multiple skin concerns in one treatment. Some benefits of PRF include:
- Tightened skin
- Reduced wrinkles
- Diminish under eye circles
- Improved skin texture
- Healthy, even-toned skin
- Lessen the appearance of scars
