After your consultation, local anaesthetic cream is applied to your skin for 30 minutes. Just before your treatment a small amount of your own blood will be taken (about 10-20mls). This is then placed in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and platelet portion. The platelet-rich fibrin component is then either injected into your skin in small amounts using a very fine needle or applied to the skin with MicroPen skin needling. Most people find this treatment very comfortable.
After the treatment the skin will appear swollen pink and you will feel some warmth in the area. This will settle over the next 12 – 24 hours. Bruising can occur, particularly around the eyes. Results take up to 2-3 weeks to see, with improvement continuing over several months. Great results can also be seen by combining PRF with Fraxel Laser, IPL Rejuvenation or Plasma Pen Fibrolift treatment.
