PRF Under Eye Rejuvenation
The Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) similar to PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a regenerative therapy that utilizes the body’s natural ability to heal itself and reducing signs of aging. The use of PRF concentrates to generate a complex Fibrin Matrix rich in platelets and leukocytes , which results in constant release of growth factors and interleukins which accelerate tissue healing and regenerating processes. PRF injections under the eye helps to facilitate improvement in under eye pigmentation & tone, enhances skin firmness, texture and thickness.
PRF treatment begins with the patients own blood draw, that is then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the PRF. This Platelet Rich Fibrin contains very high concentrations of white blood cells and fibrin. Once introduced back into the body, this cascade of healing and revitalization begins. The platelets attach to the fibrin network and release growth factors responsible for creating new skin cells, collagen, and blood vessels.
