PRP and PRF treatments on the face are known to stimulate collagen and elastin production which causes the firming and tightening of thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help boost collagen and can be a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It is also wonderful for acne scarring or hyper-pigmentation.

These two new cosmetic procedures are gaining a lot of traction among the beauty conscious that are looking for non-invasive treatments to reduce the visible signs of ageing. PRP and PRF treatments can do just that. They help reverse the effects of time by firming, tightening, and toning the skin to give those that opt for the treatment a more youthful appearance in as little as 30 minutes!
PRP and PRF - What Do They Mean?
PRP is Platelet-Rich Plasma, while PRF stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin. Although both are fairly similar in terms of treatment time, both PRF Face Treatment and PRP Face Treatments are beneficial for your skin.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. It is a concentrated source of growth factors that your body uses for tissue repair. These growth factors are very beneficial for enhancing the effects of skincare procedures as well as speeding up their results. The PRP procedure is done by taking a little blood from your body and then separating the platelets from it. The platelets contain a concentrated level of growth factors, proteins, minerals, and a cocktail of other beneficial ingredients that make your skin look younger, brighter, and healthier. The PRP is then injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This leads to a tightening of the skin and a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. The PRP procedure is used as a standalone treatment or can be used in conjunction with other skincare procedures like laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. It can also be used to treat sun damage, acne scars, and pigmentation. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the treatment is seen as safe with a low risk of allergic reactions.
PRF Procedures for Skin Renewal
PRF stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin. It is a new treatment that uses the same growth factors and proteins found in PRP. The PRF procedure is also used to enhance the effects of other skincare procedures and correct issues like sun damage, acne scars, and pigmentation. PRF is made from a fibrinogen solution that is derived from your own blood. The PRF procedure is slightly different from the PRP procedure partly because it involves a two-step process. The first step is where the blood is drawn from your arm and then the PRF solution is prepared using your blood. The second step is where the PRF solution is applied to your face.
The Famous ‘Vampire Facial’
You might have heard about the whole host of celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham who all swear by the effects of the so called ‘vampire facial’ treatment. PRP skin rejuvenation, often dubbed the “vampire facial” is a popular type of facial treatment at Hair Skin Science that uses the patient's own blood. First, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient. Then, the blood is separated into its component parts: plasma and platelets. The plasma is then injected back into the patient's face, and the platelets are applied topically.
The vampire facelift is said to be beneficial for a number of reasons. First, the injection of plasma into the skin is said to stimulate the production of collagen, which can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Additionally, the platelets that are applied topically are said to help to heal the skin and reduce the appearance of scars. Finally, the vampire facial is said to be helpful for patients who have acne, as the injection of plasma into the skin is said to help kill bacteria and reduce inflammation.
