We use PRF, Platelet Rich Fibrin in a series of gentle injections on the face as a subtle, all-natural alternative to dermal fillers. The growth factors found in PRF are key to helping reverse telltale signs of aging.
About Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Injections
For an all-natural filler option, you may want to consider Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Injections. PRF is collected from your very own blood. PRF can treat common areas that show the first signs of aging, like under-eye hollows and deflated cheeks.
PRF is the next generation of PRP and contains very high concentrations of white blood cells, fibrin and stem cells. PRF becomes a gel-like consistency immediately upon being injected into the face or body.
PRF acts as a temporary volumiser, however the true advantage of this treatment is the rejuvenation of skin quality. Unlike injectable fillers that serve a single purpose of addressing volume deficiency, the purpose of PRF injections is highly directed towards skin rejuvenation. When PRF is injected it stimulates fibroblasts, collagen and elastin to grow and therefore remodels and strengthens your skin.
Number of Treatments
PRF is performed in a series of treatments, spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
Some clients may experience swelling and minimal bruising.
Swelling tends to settle over 48 hours and bruising within 5 – 7 days.
The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after 6 weeks from initial treatment.
The price for PRF depends on the area treated and the number of vials used. From $299.
Both PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) are blood concentrate therapies. At Elucell, both are being successfully used for topical skin treatments, collagen induction, facial volume and hair regrowth.
PRF is spun in the centrifuge at a low speed. With PRF, the collection tubes do not contain coagulants. PRF is naturally thicker than PRP and forms a gel when injected into the dermis.
PRP is spun in a centrifuge at a high speed and the collection tubes contain a coagulant which forms a gel separator. This gel separates the platelet-rich and platelet-poor plasma from the blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma is collected and used for treatments.
As skin ages, it gradually loses collagen, elastin and fat. Strategically placed dermal fillers take the place of lost fat pads and collagen. Some even promote the production of collagen. This helps to enhance areas, such as the lips or cheeks, by adding volume in a controlled way.
At Elucell, we offer Anti-wrinkle injections, which help prevent dynamic wrinkles from becoming static wrinkles. Administered by a medical practitioner, these injections temporarily block the signal between muscle and nerve to smooth the skin for rejuvenated, younger-looking features.
A cosmedical peel is a minimally invasive treatment which can help with a plethora of skin concerns including uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation, congested pores and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment involves an acid solution being applied to the face which removes layers of the skin, unmasking the brand-new skin underneath and stimulating the formation of new skin cells.
