Platelet-rich plasma and vampire facials have taken over the beauty industry in a big way. By using your own protein-rich plasma, PRP is a great way to help encourage new stem cell growth in the skin which leaves patients with smoother, more youthful looking skin the process. Even though PRP is a successful way to treat patients with a variety of both cosmetic and medical concerns, there’s a new kid in town that may be giving it a run for its money: PRF.
What Is PRF?
Platelet-rich fibrin or PRF is considered to be the next generation of PRP for cosmetic purposes. To help you understand PRF, let’s take a closer look at what fibrin is. Fibrin, in basic terms, is what platelets bind to as they circulate throughout your blood. When platelets bind to fibrin they release growth factors which help to start the healing process by creating new collagen, blood vessels, and skin cells in the process. By extracting the platelet-rich fibrin from the blood, facial specialists at our office can help give patients, like you, more youthful looking results that extend beyond the treatment.
Why Is It So Effective?
The biggest reason why PRF is that much more effective than PRP is that it gives patients the same benefits as PRP, while also releasing more growth factors overtime which means that it continues working for you even after the procedure is done.
Here at our office, Dr. Peterson is pleased to announce that in addition to providing traditional dentistry services, we are using PRF surgically and will be introducing cosmetic applications in the future. If you want to learn a little bit more about PRF and how it’s transforming the cosmetic industry, contact our Park City office or give us a call at (435) 658-0678.
