Over the years, our skin can become dull, brittle, and damaged. Much of this damage is preventable, but many individuals don’t take the necessary steps to protect their skin while it is still supple and youthful. Other lifestyle choices, such as sun tanning, can contribute to damaged skin later in life. Other signs of aging, like wrinkles, are completely unavoidable. That’s why we offer PRP and PRF for skin rejuvenation.

What is PRP?
PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, is a golden serum that is derived from your own blood. The serum can be obtained by spinning a sample of your blood at high speeds in a centrifuge. This process separates the red blood cells from the rest of the components, which leaves the golden liquid behind.
PRP contains a concentration of growth factors, which is essential for rejuvenating your skin. When the serum is injected into the target areas, the body will start to produce more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in response. These components can effectively turn back the hands of time for a wrinkle-free, revitalized appearance.
What is PRF?
PRF, also known as platelet-rich fibrin, is one of the newest non-surgical options for skin rejuvenation. The body has natural processes that it goes through when an injury occurs, and one of those processes is sending fibrin to the site. Fibrin actives and releases growth factors, which is what starts the healing process.
When it comes to skin rejuvenation, PRF can be used to generate collagen production, just like PRP, but it also generates skin cells and blood vessels. The main difference between these two treatments is the fact that PRP immediately begins to rejuvenate your skin, while PRF is a more gradual process. This can lead to a PRF treatment having longer-lasting benefits.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Anyone who is looking for a non-surgical way to rejuvenate the skin may be a good candidate for PRP or PRF. It is important, however, that you do not have any blood clotting disorders. PRP and PRF can be used to treat a variety of blemishes, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Dull complexion
- Puffy eyes and dark circles
