Treatment Information

Platelet Rich Fibrin Treatments at LumiereMD

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) addresses the following problems: volume loss, hyperpigmentation, scars, lines and wrinkles, undereye circles, and hair restoration. PRF is safe for skin types and tones.

Why PRF?

PRF was first introduced in 2000. PRF offers all the clinical benefits of platelet rich plasma (PRP), plus a greater therapeutic benefit by its slower and longer duration of release of growth factors. PRF naturally forms a fibrin scaffold that guides clot formation, serves as a supportive template for tissue regeneration, and sustains growth factors and stem cells. PRF is centrifuged with no additives. 

What is the treatment experience like?

We will begin by drawing your blood. It is very important to hydrate the day of and the day prior to your treatment. If you prefer numbing cream for your treatment, please arrive one hour ahead of time for the numbing cream to be applied. After your blood is centrifuged, your provider will then pull the PRF into syringes for injection. Depending on your chosen treatment, the PRF will be injected into your hairline, tear troughs, lips, global facial rejuvenation with cannulas, or mixed with your filler for injection. It can also be injected after your SecretRF treatment (or other treatment) to problem areas, and then placed on top of the treatment area for a quicker and superior healing process. 

How does the treatment feel?

There are no additives in PRF, so there is no stinging or burning sensation that is commonly felt with PRP injection. The area will feel full and this can be an uncomfortable sensation that typically resolves within 5-20 minutes. After treatment, patients typically report the area feeling very tight later that day and for the next few days. 

When will I see results?

It can take up to three weeks for the initial effect of the volume added to dissipate. The lasting effects of the PRF treatment, such as new collagen growth, new active follicles, tissue repair, etc., is typically seen at 6-8 weeks post the initial treatment. These results typically last 6-12 months.

To sustain results over time, ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged.

How many treatments will I need?

Hair Restoration: 5 treatments are recommended. These are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. 1-2 maintenance treatments are recommended yearly. 

Global Facial Rejuvenation: 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. At least 1 maintenance treatment yearly is recommended. 

Filler + PRF: Follow your provider's recommendation for filler. Typically filler maintenance is every 9-12 months, depending on the area injected. 

Add-On Filler: Follow your provider's recommendation for your chosen treatment. We strongly recommend adding PRF to each treatment in your package for optimal results. 

Single Area Injection: 3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. At least 1-2 maintenance treatments yearly are recommended. 

How long will results last?

Generally, results from PRF last 6-12 months. This can vary greatly by patient and lifestyle. 

Your lifestyle plays an important part in your skin’s health and upkeep. You can extend results from your PRF treatment by limiting sun exposure and wearing a sunscreen year-round, quitting smoking, exercising regularly, and committing to a medical-grade skin-care regimen.
