Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is the second generation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and is used to regenerate skin through injections. At Dental Specialists of North Florida, PRF injections are created using your blood, and a protein matrix is known as fibrin. When harvested, it transforms into a gel containing a high concentration of white blood cells, fibrin, and stem cells.
What Is the PRF Procedure?
PRF is extracted from your blood. One vial of blood is obtained before therapy. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge designed to isolate PRF from other blood components. The PRF is extracted from the top of the vial into a syringe after spinning. PRF is then combined with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to increase facial volume. Our practice has had outstanding results in rejuvenating under-eye hollows with a combination of PRF and Restylane.
Who Is a Candidate for PRF Injections?
PRF injections are safe for anyone seeking younger-looking skin. PRF injections are also used to encourage hair growth. Therefore they may be a viable therapy option for patients experiencing hair loss. They also aid in wound healing, which is why PRF injections are used in the dental business.
Most people are suitable candidates for PRF therapy, depending on their concerns. One of the most significant advantages of PRF is that it is a minimally invasive technique with a low risk of consequences. It also provides excellent clinical outcomes, such as lowering the risk of problems or implant failure, which is especially advantageous in elderly patients suffering from age-related disorders.
The Benefits of Using Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
- PRF is created quickly and conveniently in the doctor's office while the patient is undergoing an outpatient surgical procedure, such as the placement of dental implants.
- The supersaturation of the wound with PRF and, thus, growth factors increases tissue synthesis, resulting in faster tissue regeneration and healing.
- One of the primary benefits of PRF is that it is a minimally invasive method with low risks and excellent clinical results, such as reducing complications or implant failure, especially in older patients with age-related diseases.
- PRF has a wide range of therapeutic uses, including bone grafting for dental implants, ridge augmentation operations, the closure of cleft, lip, and palate deformities, and sinus lift procedures. PRP allows the body to use the regular healing pathways much faster; the body rushes multiple cells and cell types to the wound to begin the healing process.
