PRF treatments are one of the hottest cosmetic treatments around right now, but is it just a fad? Is there more to it than what the headlines tell us? Is it an effective treatment or just another social media obsession? Why should you try a PRF treatment?
All these questions and more will be answered in this post.
As one of Australia’s leading PRF specialists, Hair and Skin Science have extensive experience of providing PRF treatments to thousands of men and women across the country.
We’re going to use that experience to provide the information you need to make an informed decision about PRF treatments.
Whether you’re considering them purely for cosmetic reasons or to tackle a particular problem, we can help.
What are PRF treatments?
PRF treatments use Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to tackle common skin and hair loss conditions.
Platelet Rich Fibrin is extracted from your blood by a very simple process. It provides a potent plasma solution full of growth factors, stem cells, white blood cells, fibrin, platelets and other good things.
Your body uses blood plasma to heal itself.
All those elements above are what your body uses to regenerate cells, heal wounds, repair skin and keep your body running.
PRF treatments harness that healing potential and target it at problem areas.
They aren’t a fad either. They have a basis in science and are delivering exceptional results.
How do PRF treatments work?
The process is very straightforward. Appointments last less than an hour and leave very little sign you had anything done.
It begins by taking a small blood sample. We pass the blood through a medical centrifuge to separate the blood plasma from the rest of your blood.
We then prepare the solution and load it into a microneedler or syringe.
We apply the solution directly to your skin or scalp to deliver the payload where we want it to go.
While talk of needles may make you feel uncomfortable, you’ll hardly feel a thing. The Hair and Skin Science team are experts in their field and promise to keep discomfort to a minimum.
What types of PRF treatments are there?
There are a number of PRF treatments that target common skin and hair conditions.
PRF treatments can include:
- PRF hair treatment
- PRF skin treatments
- PRF eye rejuvenation
- PRF facial treatment
- PRF acne scar treatment
- PRF beard growth treatment
- PRF stretch mark treatment
- PRF hand rejuvenation treatment
- PRF neck and decolletage treatment
PRF treatments can tackle many common conditions and be applied to most areas of the body.
Conditions that can be effectively treated with PRF treatments
PRF treatments are derived from PRP treatments. PRP was initially used to treat wounds and sports injuries.
The effects were so positive that other applications were quickly developed, including cosmetic treatments.
There is an impressive amount of scientific evidence showing the effectiveness of PRP and PRF is rapidly proving itself a worthy successor.
PRF treatments can tackle:
- Signs of ageing
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Loose or sagging skin
- Acne scars and other scars
- Stretch marks
- The many causes of hair loss
- Thinning hair
- Bags under the eyes or dark circles
- Discoloured skin
As PRF treatments use your own natural processes to heal, there’s no real limit to what it can treat!
Top 5 benefits of PRF treatments
So that’s the what and how of PRF treatments. Now let’s share some compelling reasons we consider these treatments to be worth trying.
1. It’s 100% natural
PRF treatments use your own blood as the cure. That means no medication, no chemicals, no fillers and nothing that doesn’t come from your own body.
Not only is this a very effective way to treat issues, it’s also the natural way. Your body uses plasma, fibrin, white blood cells, stem cells and the other ingredients in healing anyway.
We just concentrate it and target it where you need it most.
Being completely natural means almost zero chance of side effects too, which is another point in its favour.
2. Non-surgical hair regrowth
While not all hair treatments require surgery, some do. PRF treatments don’t.
There is no surgery required and no intrusive procedures aside from an injection. The microneedler is designed for minimal discomfort and our team are experts in applying them.
We do everything we can to make you comfortable and ensure a positive experience.
No surgery also means no recovery time.
When our lives are so busy and we have so much going on, the ability to walk out of our clinic and go about your day cannot be underestimated!
3. It is proving very effective
There are no guarantees of course, this is medicine after all. However, the vast majority of recipients of PRF treatments experience tangible results over time.
This is no social media obsession or headline grabbing fad. This is a real, tried and tested treatment for a range of conditions.
We treat thousands of women and men every year for a range of common hair and skin conditions. The vast majority of them have experienced positive results and would have the treatment again.
That should tell you all you need to know.
4. Results over time
Another benefit of PRF treatments is that they generate results over time.
It takes a few weeks and 3-4 treatments to begin generating results, but once they do begin delivering, they last a long time.
PRF is a slow-release treatment. The payload is delivered quickly to the skin but the body takes a while to use it to regenerate cells.
The advantage is that it uses the growth factors to deliver results over the coming weeks and months.
We recommend top-up treatments, but the initial course of treatments can produce results that last many months.
5. Tackle the many signs of ageing
The final, and for some, the most important benefit of PRF treatments, is the ability to effectively tackle the many signs of ageing.
No need for surgery, fillers, medications, chemicals or strange herbal creams or concoctions.
PRF treatments are proving exceptionally effective at treating wrinkles, fine lines and ageing skin on the face, neck, hands, shoulders, upper back and front (decolletage).
As many of you will already know, cosmetics and cosmetic treatments are only ever partially effective. Few can tackle the hands and neck, so there’s usually some sign of your true age.
PRF treatments regenerate the skin rather than remove it, replace it or pull it into position.
Your skin cells regenerate, more collagen and elastin are produced and your skin repairs and regenerates itself.
PRF treatments and their benefits
As you can see, PRF treatments have real, tangible benefits. They aren’t something only influencers can try or a fad that will disappear in a few months.
They are real, effective treatments for a range of medical and cosmetic conditions that really work.
Whether you’re trying to tackle something or want to look younger, PRF treatments are delivering confidence and joy to people across Australia every day.
