EZ PRF TREATMENTS
At Laser Aesthetics of Cape Cod in Hyannis, MA, we offer EZ PRF treatments that use the growth factors in your blood to rejuvenate your skin. Whether you want to brighten your complexion, achieve a healthy and youthful glow, or substitute this natural filler for a synthetic option, we can design a treatment plan that helps you unlock healing properties found in your very own blood.
EZ PRF Treatments
EZ PRF treatments use platelet-rich fibrin in a gel form as the primary active ingredient. Instead of using invasive techniques or harsh topical solutions to improve your skin, we use the growth factors from your blood to naturally improve the appearance. Not only can we use these growth factors to target different concerns on the skin, but we can also use them during our hair restoration treatments to stimulate the body to regrow healthy hair naturally.
The Difference Between PRP and PRF
Platelet-rich plasma and fibrin are both found in the blood, but PRF is superior to PRP. PRF is essentially the next-generation version of PRP. It contains a higher concentration of growth factors, and because of the way we prepare it, those growth factors are released slowly after being administered into the skin, which delivers better results.
PRP contains growth factors, but once administered, they are short-lived. PRF contains cytokines, stem cells, and growth factors, and because of its slow-release properties, they will continue healing the treatment area for several weeks, which enables you to benefit the most from your treatment.
Preparing Your PRF: The Ultimate Blood Concentrate
When we prepare our PRF Gel for use during treatment, we use the Ultimate Blood Concentrate process so that you can get the most out of your treatment. We will perform a standard blood draw, place it into the easy PRF tube, and use a specialized centrifugation process with low-speed gravitational forces to isolate the PRF from the rest of the plasma.
Once we complete this process, we will remove the top layer, which will be the platelet-rich fibrin, free of any synthetic products and solutions. This platelet-rich fibrin will contain a combination of plasma, platelets, red blood cells, mesenchymal stem cells, and white blood cells. Since we don’t add anticoagulants or synthetic ingredients to your PRF, the fibrin will clot, allowing the growth factors to slowly release into the tissue and continue working for weeks following your treatment.
PRF creates new blood vessels and skin cells, naturally rejuvenating the skin. Those whose skin feels dull, aged, or lifeless can undergo a skin rejuvenating treatment with EZ PRF to restore youth, life, and vibrancy to their skin.
Collagen is the key to many aging-related concerns. This protein is responsible for healthy and youthful-looking skin. Still, as you age, your body produces significantly less collagen every year after the age of 30, and this begins to negatively impact your appearance. This treatment can help naturally stimulate collagen production to resolve the most common signs of aging.
Once you undergo this treatment, the PRF will release growth factors for up to two weeks, and those growth factors will stimulate natural collagen production. Increased collagen production provides a natural solution to the most common signs of aging, including hollow areas, lines, wrinkles, facial folds, large pores, and skin laxity.
Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
We can also use the proteins and growth factors from your blood to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the face. Lines and wrinkles typically form due to aging, as your body produces less collagen. Skin laxity can cause wrinkles and facial folds, as can the general weakening of the skin. We can use this anti-aging blood serum to help reduce lines and wrinkles in rejuvenate your skin.
Reducing the Appearance of Acne Scars
We can also use this treatment to help reduce the appearance of acne scars. The platelet-rich fibrin will stimulate natural collagen production, which can help improve the appearance of scars. Increased collagen production in the area surrounding and beneath the scar will create a more uniform appearance.
EZ PRF treatments for hair restoration provide a natural way for patients who have experienced different types of hair loss to promote new hair growth and force the body to naturally heal the scalp and any damaged hair follicles. The growth factors from your blood can significantly improve hair growth in different areas.
Patients who have experienced a receding hairline, thinning hair, bald patches, or balding can benefit from this treatment and how it uses the natural growth factors and regenerative properties in your blood to improve scalp health and stimulate hair growth without chemicals or oral medications.
Enhancing the Results Microneedling and RF Microneedling
Another way that patients can benefit from the growth factors found in their platelet-rich fibrin is by adding the EZ Gel to microneedling and RF microneedling treatments. Both of these needling treatments increase the skin’s ability to absorb topical products. By applying the blood-based serum directly to the skin during the treatment, the growth factors will be absorbed into the microchannels and will continue to release those growth factors for weeks following treatment.
Using EZ PRF in Conjunction With Dermal Fillers and Laser Treatments
Another of the benefits of platelet-rich fibrin is that we can add it to other treatments, including dermal filler and laser treatments. This, combined with other anti-aging treatments, can help you achieve comprehensive results and benefit from the proteins and growth factors in your blood.
Am I a Candidate?
The best candidates for EZ PRF treatments are patients who want to address specific skin concerns or restore hair growth with a natural treatment that will deliver results. Since this anti-aging serum contains your blood, and no additives or chemicals, you can undergo the treatment without fear of an allergic or adverse reaction.
Rejuvenate Your Skin With Your Body's Natural Healing Properties
Skin rejuvenating and anti-aging treatments don’t have to involve invasive measures to deliver results. Our EZ PRF treatments can make a significant improvement in the health and appearance of your skin, promote hair growth, and reverse the aging process without any adverse reactions.
