Common

QUESTIONS

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is similar to Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) in that it is a substance derived from a patient’s own blood, but the process of creating it is slightly different. PRP is created by centrifuging a small sample of blood in order to separate out the plasma, which is then concentrated to create a high-platelet concentration solution. This solution is rich in growth factors and other proteins that promote tissue healing and regeneration, and it is also used in various medical procedures, such as orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, and hair restoration.

PRF is made by additional step of adding an anticoagulant and then centrifuging again and the resultant gel is rich in clotting factors which makes it more thrombogenic, and it is more effective in bone regeneration and wound healing as compared to PRP.

In short, PRP is plasma with a higher concentration of platelets, while PRF is a fibrin matrix containing a high concentration of platelets and also contains leukocytes, growth factors, and other cells that promote healing.

PRP therapy encompasses extracting a minute quantity of blood from the patient, segregating the platelets from other blood components, and subsequently injecting the concentrated platelets back into the skin. PRP contains an array of growth factors and cytokines that facilitate tissue regeneration, collagen synthesis, and enhanced blood circulation within the treated area. By harnessing the body’s innate healing prowess, PRP for facial rejuvenation stimulates skin revitalization and effectively addresses a myriad of aesthetic concerns.

The process of PRP for facial rejuvenation commences with a straightforward blood draw. The extracted blood is then subjected to high-speed centrifugation, meticulously segregating the platelets from the remaining blood constituents. Once the platelets are concentrated, the resulting PRP is meticulously injected into specific facial regions, such as the cheeks, forehead, or under-eye area. The growth factors inherent in PRP serve as catalysts for collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture and overall rejuvenation.
