1. More Cells!
Not only does PRF contain more platelets per mcL, it also has leukocytes (WBC) & mesenchymal stem cell! We could also call it the "Platelet, Leukocyte & Mesenchymal-stem-cells Concentrate”, but that would be a bit long, wouldn’t it? (#PLMC)
2. Fibrin Scaffold!
The fact that the plasma actually clots into fibrin allows for a much slower release of the Growth factor and cytokines. We have more cells, resulting in more GFs, kept alive longer and released for a much longer period of time.
Up to 10x the platelet concentration.
In order to obtain PRP, it is necessary to spin the tubes at up to 6x the G-Force of the EZPRF process.
The idea of the high spin method is to eliminate all Red Blood Cells (RBC), by pushing them down with gravitational force.
It's a good idea, but spinning it too fast, for too long, PRP methods also eliminate the cells that we DO want.
Platelet-rich fibrin facials start with microneedling, which involves using a SkinPen® to poke hundreds of tiny holes in the outer layer of your skin. The PRF, which has been derived from your own blood, is also applied to your face. The microneedling process makes your skin especially receptive to the healing factors in the PRF.
The platelet-rich fibrin is exceptionally high in growth factors, and the microneedling process stimulates skin regeneration. When combined in a PRF facial, your skin is prompted to turn over cells and create fresher, more supple skin.
Your skin also boosts its collagen production with PRF therapy. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its firm, elastic quality, and youthful appearance. As you age, collagen production naturally reduces.
A PRF facial can greatly improve the appearance of your skin and is a valid noninvasive alternative to a face-lift. However, you won’t get exactly the same results as you would with surgery. Talk to Jill Girany about your aesthetic goals to determine if a PRF facial is right for you.
Recovery following a PRF facial is much less intrusive than following a face-lift or intensive chemical peel. Expect to have some minor swelling and redness, and even some light bruising, for up to five days following treatment. These side effects can be masked with makeup.
Once the initial inflammation has resolved, your skin will look tighter and smoother. However, it takes up to six weeks for optimal results to appear as your body needs time to develop new collagen and skin cells.
