THE VANITY BAR PRF
Platelet Rich Fibrin
At The Vanity Bar we offer the latest treatments and new technology. Platelet Rich Fibrin is a treatment that stimulates new cell growth and promotes healing. This treatment can also help give you a more youthful appearance, and smooth out lines or wrinkles.
What is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
PRF stimulates your body to grow new cells and promotes healing when injected into the skin. Our PRF procedure uses a person’s own blood to create a mixture of growth factors and stem cells to help stimulate natural healing and cell growth. PRF is fast becoming a favorite in the aesthetic industry due to its versatility and natural ability to rejuvenate the skin.
This treatment uses ONLY your blood. There are absolutely no additives such as anticoagulants, chemicals, or fillers.
When PRF is injected into areas of your skin this helps allow new collagen to grow, and regenerate tissue and hair. Another benefit of PRF is that the procedure can help smooth and tighten your skin. PRF is also used to promote a healthier scalp, and thicker, fuller hair.
What Can PRF Help With?
PRF creates a smooth and even skin tone and can help with dark eye circles, puffiness, sagging and volume loss around the mouth or jaw, cheeks, eyes, and treats fine lines or wrinkles. PRF treatment can also help thinning hair and promote new hair growth.
How can PRF boost your Skinpen® Microneedling results?
SkinPen® is a microneedling device that is meant to treat sun damage, age and brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven skin tone and large pores by creating micro-injuries in the dermis, which takes advantage of the skin’s natural healing process. The skin naturally produces new collagen and elastin in the treatment areas, leading to a fresher skin appearance. SkinPen® is safe for all skin types and requires very minimal down time. Platelet Rich Fibrin, or PRF, is your own body’s super serum, aka liquid gold!
Our clinician will draw your blood and spin it at select speeds. This spinning process separates the cells that are rich in growth factors which are then used in your treatment. When PRF is placed back into the skin by microneedling or injection, it activates growth factors which can promote faster healing time, stimulate skin renewal, and can maximize your results overall.
How Can PRF Help Restore Hair and Promote Growth?
Platelet Rich Fibrin or PRF is a substance created from your own blood. When injected into the scalp, PRF can repair damaged hair follicles by increasing blood flow to the tissue. To schedule your consultation and learn more about the benefits of PRF please contact The Vanity Bar.
How Does the PRF Procedure Work?
If you have decided to move forward with the PRF procedure in our office, the first appointment begins with a blood draw. This blood draw is then placed in a machine to separate the components and create the liquid mixture. This mixture is injected or microneedled into the area of concern or used as a serum post procedure.
The recovery after a PRF treatment is minimal. Patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or soreness around the injection site. This should subside after a few days. We do recommend patients relax and refrain from exercising at least 24-48 hours after their treatment. Avoid aspirin or ibuprofen for one week prior to the procedure. This can cause bruising and may interfere with the treatment.
When Will I See Results?
PRF treatment helps to improve skin texture and tone, and softens lines. PRF tightens your skin and gives you that beautiful glow. Patients can see results typically 3-4 weeks after their treatment. We typically recommend 3-4 treatments for best results. During our detailed consultation process, our Nurse Practitioner will discuss the procedure and provide recommendations depending on your goals and areas of concern.
