Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

As part of the natural aging process, we lose volume in our face, cheeks, temples, and under our eyes. As we approach our 40’s and 50’s the elasticity of our skin is diminished, and our skin and muscles start to stretch from loss of collagen and elastin.  PRF, or Platelet Rich Fibrin is a natural filler that can stimulate collagen growth, tighten skin, and add volume back to the face.

PRF is the evolution of blood-concentration therapy. PRF stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin, a concentrate of your own cells, used as an alternative to synthetic solutions. Therefore, ezPRF is an autologous blood concentrate, 100% natural, free of additives and chemicals and packed with pBlood Concentrate. The therapy utilizes our own blood to get platelets, white blood cells, fibrin for different aesthetic purposes.

Your Blood is All You Really Need

Platelets and white blood cells are two important producers of growth factors which 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 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 the other cells and proteins which will be collected and reused.

What is the procedure like?

  1. Draw Blood: A small sample of your blood is collected in the ezPRF tubes.
  2. Centrifugation: 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.
  3. Collect Concentrate: Once the centrifugation is complete, the top layer of the tube’s content is collected. This layer (approx. 10% of tube) is composed of your very own Platelets and White blood cells: The Ultimate Blood Concentrate!
