About PRF

The human body is an incredibly powerful machine with amazing regenerative capabilities. When you’re injured, your body initiates a wide range of physiological processes to heal the wound and aid recovery. In recent years, we have learned to harness these regenerative properties to heal numerous skin conditions, such as scars, stretch marks, skin laxity, loss of collagen, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. MAEVA Aesthetics provides highly personalized injections of PRF  to stimulate natural cellular regeneration and collagen production, helping you achieve smooth, even-textured, and youthful skin.

What is PRF?

PRF, short for platelet-rich fibrin, is a component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors. The human blood has numerous components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and growth factors. The growth factors are responsible for most of the body’s healing processes. When you’re injured, for example, the growth factors rush to the injured site to stimulate cellular regeneration and clot formation. PRF treatment allows us to harness the regenerative properties of the growth factors.

The cosmetic provider draws a small sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich fibrin, which rises to the top of the vial as a golden-colored serum. The platelet-rich fibrin has an incredibly high concentration of growth factors, which is carefully injected or applied to the targeted treatment areas on the skin. The growth factors in the PRF serum stimulate collagen production, skin cell turnover, and other regenerative processes, making your skin look smooth, even-textured, soft, and youthful.

Your PRF Treatment Options

Your PRF  can be performed in two forms — as PRF injections only or in conjunction with microneedling. PRF injections are simple — we inject the purified platelet-rich fibrin serum into targeted areas on your skin. But if you want even better results, we can combine PRF treatment with microneedling, a skin rejuvenation procedure that involves making thousands of micro-punctures to stimulate collagen production. The cosmetic provider can apply the PRF serum to your skin after microneedling, ensuring superior results.

The PRF Treatment

MAEVA Aesthetics performs a highly personalized PRF treatment after a thorough consultation. The cosmetic provider will examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history. After the evaluation, the cosmetic provider will draw a small sample of your blood from your arm. The blood sample will be spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich fibrin, which will be drawn into a syringe. The cosmetic provider will inject PRF into targeted treatment areas using ultrafine needles.

Side Effects of PRF

Your PRF  involves minimal post-treatment side effects, such as mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the treatment areas. The side effects dissipate within a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a few days.

Onset & Longevity of Results

PRF produces gradual results over several weeks and months. You will notice the results after several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers and skin cells. The results will continue improving for several weeks. Some patients may need additional treatments for optimal results — our cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency.
