PRF in Burnaby
PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is a part of your blood that contains growth factors, regenerative cells, and stem cells – all of the components necessary to stimulate collagen growth. PRF facial injections are a natural way to stimulate your body’s ability to repair and build new collagen to slow down the appearance of aging. Firstly, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red and white blood cells resulting in plasma concentrated with platelets, growth factors and proteins.
PRF differs from PRP in that the blood is processed in the centrifuge at a slower speed and no additives are added to the blood. When the blood is spun slower, more growth factors are released over time which means that it continues working for you even after the procedure is done. This concentrated solution is then injected into the skin to stimulate the regeneration of soft tissues and build collagen, to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles and scars, and improve overall skin quality.
This procedure is personalized to your specific aesthetic concerns. Injections can be done all over the face to improve the look of the skin, fine lines, wrinkles and scars but it can also be done on the neck, décolletage, and hands, etc. PRF treatments can also be used for joint pain and hair restoration purposes.
