PRF Facial / PRF Injections / PRF Hair Restoration
Thrive Skin + Wellness is located in Holly Springs.
A Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) facial and PRF injections are leading, custom-designed non-surgical procedures. PRF is the next generation of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and contains more growth factors and fibrin than traditional PRP. They are offered to treat aging skin and hair regeneration. If you want to restore a youthful appearance, try a PRF facial or PRF injections in Holly Springs.
PRF is drawn from a patient’s own blood and has been used in medical procedures to regenerate new cellular growth and assist with healing for years. But not until recently was it discovered to have cosmetic benefits as well.
With a PRF facial or PRF injections, the human body uses its natural capacity to heal itself, regenerating new tissue by utilizing your own bioactive proteins and growth factors for the natural production of stem cells, accelerating tissue repair. Start using your body’s own regenerative powers!
Micro-needling with PRF jump-starts the body’s healing response which causes new collagen to form, improving damage caused by acne scars, wrinkles, and long-term sun exposure. Micro-needling with PRF has also been shown to improve the appearance of many different types of skin conditions such as tone, texture, Melasma, and stretch marks.
Unlike microneedling with PRF, PRF injections are done below the skin’s surface, and they can be safely administered anywhere on the face. Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The effects of Cosmetic PRF can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual.
While it creates a longer-lasting effect in the skin, it does take time to work. For women looking for an immediate effect, Cosmetic PRF can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers for quick volume correction. Fillers provide a matrix for building new collagen and can be used to accelerate and sustain the benefits of Cosmetic PRF.
PRF Gel Injections
PRF Gel is the next generation in collagen-formation techniques that use the healing properties of your blood to repair and reverse signs of aging. It is a great option for someone who is not looking for traditional HA dermal fillers.
One of the many benefits of PRF Gel is that it can be injected where HA dermal fillers are not safe to use. While HA fillers fill specific lines and folds, PRF Gel improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone.
PRF Injections for Hair Regeneration
PRF hair restoration therapy is an innovative procedure that utilizes your body’s own platelet blood cells to reactivate dormant hair follicles when injected into targeted areas, providing you with a fuller head of hair. This minimally invasive procedure employs a technique that has been successfully used for several years in conjunction with other medical and cosmetic procedures such as microneedling.
Your PRF hair restoration therapy will begin with a preliminary consultation to determine your candidacy for the procedure. If you qualify for treatment, you will be given a plan as well as pre-treatment steps and medication.
Ideal Candidates for a PRF Facial or PRF Injections
Most people are excellent candidates for these treatment options. You are a good candidate for a PRF facial or PRF injections if you want youthful-looking skin or are suffering from hair loss.
Since the platelet concentrate is extracted from your body, there is no risk of allergic reaction. A PRF treatment is also a good option for people who want to avoid the scarring that can accompany surgical rejuvenation procedures.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women should wait after childbirth and nursing to ensure a safe and effective treatment. Patients with cancer, an active skin infection, or a low platelet count should discuss these during their consultation.
To confirm your eligibility for PRF injections, schedule a consultation with us.
Your PRF Treatment Consultation
A PRF consultation involves a conversation about your appearance goals to help our team determine which PRF treatment can best achieve these goals. You will be asked about your complete medical history to confirm your eligibility for the treatment.
Next, a PRF treatment option will be recommended. Our team will provide a personalized treatment plan. Your treatment schedule, preparation, aftercare, and potential results will be discussed to help you learn more about the benefits of this treatment.
For best results, PRF patients are encouraged to avoid smoking, prolonged sun exposure, and other activities that speed up skin or scalp aging.
How to Prepare for a PRF Treatment
Before your PRF treatment, you will need to avoid blood-thinning medications and certain herbal supplements for at least one week. Consult with your doctor for recommended temporary medication changes.
It is important that you stay hydrated so that we can create the highest-quality PRF from your blood. Drink eight glasses of water every day.
On the day of your PRF session, wash the selected area for treatment with mild soap or shampoo. Avoid applying skincare products to prevent complications.
The Treatment Session
Before either treatment, a vial of your blood will be taken and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the other blood components. The process will pool the platelets, which are responsible for stimulating faster healing, into a syringe.
Next, either the PRF facial or the PRF injections are performed. During PRF injections, the PRF is precisely injected into the neck, face, or scalp.
During a PRF facial, a microneedling handpiece is held against the skin of the targeted region and passed over it for even coverage. Next, the PRF serum is applied, traveling through the newly created microchannels down to the deeper skin layers.
What Is Aftercare Like?
The PRF facial and PRF injections have no downtime, although some swelling, mild irritation, or redness may occur. These may disappear after a few hours or days.
You will notice improved skin within four to six weeks of getting a PRF facial or PRF injections. Multiple sessions are usually scheduled every two to three months. You can have as many PRF treatments as you like, so you can make them a part of your regular anti-aging routine.
How Much Does PRF Cost?
The cost of your rejuvenating PRF procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area and on your aesthetic goals. Complete details about the price will be provided at your consultation once your unique treatment plan has been developed.
