If you’re looking for an easy and non-invasive way of getting rid of wrinkles and acne scars or improving your sexual wellbeing, platelet-rich fibrin could be right for you. This treatment uses the natural healing properties found in our blood to rejuvenate and repair the skin cells. Here at Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, we offer a variety of treatments featuring innovative EZPRF technology. Let’s examine the benefits and how it could serve you.
Types of Blood Concentrate Therapy
Blood concentrate therapy is a way of using our own blood to rejuvenate and restore tissues that are damaged by either trauma or aging. There are two main types of treatment currently available, called PRP and EZPRF. They both utilize substances from our own blood, but EZPRF is a newer and more effective method.
In contrast, PRP, platelet-rich plasma, releases the growth factors more quickly and contains less of them than a PRF treatment, so that the effect is lessened. What’s more, it does not contain Mesenchymal stem cells like PRF does because of the higher duration and G-force used when spinning the tubes. PRP also contains an anticoagulant additive, which is absent in the more innovative treatment. Let’s examine more closely how EZPRF works.
What Is EZPRF?
EZPRF is an autologous blood concentrate, 100% natural, free of additives and chemicals, and packed with powerful cells for skin rejuvenation purposes. EZPRF produces Platelet-Rich Fibrin from your own whole blood sample.
How Does it Work?
It works by isolating your own regenerative cells using a slow and short centrifugation process. These cells will then be used for skin improvement purposes.
Why Is EZPRF Better Than Traditional PRP?
This second-generation concentrate doesn’t require the use of any additive nor anti-coagulant to unlock our bodies’ natural healing properties. It uses the latest technologies to maximize natural body response without damaging its environment. The results? A concentrate that is richer in platelets and longer-lasting growth factors for maximum stimulation and best results!
What’s in Your Blood?
Your blood contains 55% Plasma, 5% Platelets, and 40% Red blood cells. Platelets and white blood cells are two important producers of growth factors that are essential for the rejuvenation process. The plasma, composed mostly of water and proteins, also plays an important role in obtaining The Ultimate Blood Concentrate. Once removed from its natural environment, plasma coagulates and a fibrin scaffold starts to form.
This network of proteins will keep the blood cells more active, allowing for a longer, slower, and more durable release of growth factors. The EZPRF process will separate the red blood cells from all other cells and proteins that will be collected and reused.
What Is the Procedure Like?
First, a small sample of your blood is collected in the EZPRF tubes. Secondly, the EZPRF tubes are then spun in order to separate your red blood cells from everything else. The centrifugal force generated pushes the heavier red blood cells to the bottom of the tube.
Lastly, once the centrifugation is complete, the top layer of the tube’s content is collected. This layer (approx. 10% of the tube) is composed of your very own Platelets and White blood cells: The Ultimate Blood Concentrate!
How Does Platelet Rich Fibrin Work?
As mentioned, the EZPRF treatment uses your own cells to heal and rejuvenate your body and encourage it to grow new, healthy cells. In essence, PRF is your blood without the red blood cells. It contains all the different substances, such as platelets, white blood cells, and Mesenchymal stem cells, held together by a fibrin scaffolding. But how can these components help to rejuvenate other cells?
Platelets and white blood cells are essential in wound healing. When you get injured, your body sends them to the site and they promote both the removal of old, broken cells and the formation of new ones. That’s why you’re able to form a scab and the skin naturally heals underneath it. By injecting these substances directly where they are most needed, they can improve the texture of your skin, reduce wrinkles, and even enhance your sexual function.
What PRF Treatments Can Be Done?
There is a wide range of treatments available using PRF technology. Because of the low risk and the fact that they can be performed very quickly, they are extremely popular. Whether you’re looking to reduce wrinkles on your face or improve your sexual pleasure and performance, an EZPRF treatment could be just what you need.
The PRF Facelift
As we are exposed to sunlight on a daily basis, the skin on our face changes in appearance. To retain our youthful complexion, a facelift can work wonders. As part of this treatment, a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is first injected in several spots of your face, which will work to add volume to the skin. Then, blood is taken and the PRF is extracted.
This will be administered in the second round of injections and the platelets are delivered to the spots where you most need them, such as your smile lines. Over the next days and weeks, they will encourage your body to produce more collagen locally, which will improve your skin texture. The effect should be complete within two to three months, and you may want to occasionally repeat the treatment to ensure a long-lasting youthful look.
The PRF Facial
If you would like a slightly lighter treatment, an EZPRF treatment may be suitable for you. This does not use the dermal fillers of the facelift but relies on the platelets and white blood cells of your own PRF solution to rejuvenate your skin and give it a smooth texture. Because it is composed of only one round of injections, it may be appropriate if you would like a less drastic change or are new to this kind of treatment.
In case you would also like to rejuvenate the texture of your hands, neck, and upper torso, the same technique can be used as with the facial. Consult your doctor to see whether this could be a good option for you.
Microneedling with PRF
Microneedling with PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is the gold standard in natural skin rejuvenation. Microneedling with PRF is a popular choice for improving skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, acne scars, under-eye bags, and dull, tired-looking skin. The biggest reason why PRF is much more effective than PRP is that it gives patients the same benefits as PRP, while also releasing more growth factors over time which means that it continues working for you even after the procedure is done Long-term effects, such as skin tightening, collagen production and enhanced skin quality, may take up to three to four months to be noticed and can last from six to 12 months. The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after six weeks from initial treatment.
You will have a consultation with your doctor to evaluate your general health and discuss your reasons for seeking out the treatment. Before your appointment, your doctor may advise you to follow a specific diet to ensure you get the best quality platelets possible.
Your Visit at the Clinic
Fortunately, the EZPRF treatment is generally comfortable and quick. If you opt for a PRF facial, you may be in and out of your doctor’s office in as little as 30 minutes to one hour. This is a treatment you could even do on your lunch break. You will also be able to resume all of your normal activities almost immediately after your visit to the clinic.
Generally, there is not much aftercare required and you can return to your normal routine as soon as you walk out of the clinic. Your doctor will encourage you to schedule an appointment a few months later to check on your progress and how well the treatment worked for you, as well as to evaluate the need for future PRF injections.
