When you want to enhance your skin to help you look younger, regenerative treatments can often be some of the most helpful options. The talented team at The Kaplan Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is able to perform platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) therapy, an all-natural procedure that can improve deflated cheeks and hair loss. This treatment takes advantage of fibrin and growth factors found within the patient's own bloodstream in order to stimulate their body's natural regenerative abilities. Dr. Gordon Kaplan and his experienced staff have utilized this treatment to enhance the aesthetics of many of our patients in Edgewater, NJ.
PRF therapy can be used for a variety of purposes by a number of different types of patients. In addition to its anti-aging effects, it can also be used to thin HA fillers for patients with thin skin who still wish to add volume to their face. During your consultation, our staff will discuss your specific goals, as well as any questions or concerns you may have before determining if PRF therapy is the right method of treatment for you.
At the beginning of the treatment, we will take a small sample of blood, which will be placed into a centrifuge. This begins a process, which separates the growth factors, fibrin, and other beneficial elements of the blood from the other components. This PRF is then injected into the treatment area(s) where the serum is able to encourage growth and healing within the skin. This entire process usually takes anywhere from 12 – 18 minutes in total.
Unlike other treatments that use artificial serums, PRF therapy uses elements drawn directly from the patient's own blood, which means there is usually no risk of having an adverse reaction to the procedure. However, there may be some slight redness and/or discomfort near the injection sites for a few hours after the treatment. These symptoms are completely normal and will subside naturally within just a short time. To maintain your results, we usually recommend patients schedule maintenance appointments about every 4 – 6 weeks.
Wrinkles, fine lines, and other concerns can often lead to a lot of insecurity about your appearance. Don't let this hold you back, thanks to PRF therapy, a revolutionary treatment designed to leave you looking and feeling younger without the need for surgery. Our talented staff is led by Dr. Gordon Kaplan, an expert in the field of aesthetic medicine, making us the premier cosmetic facility in Edgewater, NJ.
