How Does a PRF Facial Work?

At Este Medical, our PRF facial shares a starting point with our PRP Facial. A small blood sample is taken from the patient – giving reason for the name “Vampire Facial” - which then undergoes a specialised centrifugation process. By separating the platelets and growth factors from other components in the blood, the centrifuge creates a PRF solution that is highly rich in platelets and bioactive proteins essential for regenerating and revitalising the skin.  

Similar to our PRF Hair Loss Treatment, our PRF treatment for face goes a step above PRP, as it does not involve the use of any anticoagulants or chemicals and uses up to 10x more platelets.  

The absence of chemicals in PRF treatments means that the plasma is allowed to form a fibrin scaffold that is rich in platelets and white blood cells when introduced to the treatment area. This causes the gradual release of growth factors over time which help to sustain the results for longer, as opposed to PRP’s quicker release, which offers shorter term effects.  

Additionally, the blood in PRF is cooled before centrifugation, resulting in a higher volume of PRF liquid—up to 20-50% more. This results in better treatment coverage, and more enhanced and reliable facial rejuvenation.

Benefits of PRF Therapy for Face

  • Natural Rejuvenation

PRF facial treatments at Este Medical Group promote natural skin rejuvenation without the use of any anticoagulants or chemical, harnessing the body's own platelets and growth factors to stimulate collagen production for enhanced skin vitality and radiance.

  • Long-Lasting Results

A slower and more sustained release of growth factors in PRF contributes creates much longer-lasting results compared to PRP, providing a continuous stimulation of collagen production for a lasting impact.

  • Enhanced Cell Adhesion

The absence of chemicals allows the PRF plasma to form a platelet and white blood cell-rich fibrin scaffold, enhancing cell adhesion and optimising the effectiveness of the treatment.

  • Increased Volume for Better Coverage

The cooling process before centrifugation results in up to 20-50% more volume of PRF liquid. This helps to ensure comprehensive coverage when injected into targeted facial areas for optimal results.

  • Minimal Downtime

Our PRF facial treatment is known for its minimal downtime, meaning you can get back to your daily activities as soon as possible.

PRF Facial

Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (bFGF):

Known for stimulating cell growth, bFGF plays a significant role in tissue regeneration and wound healing. It supports the growth of new blood vessels and aids in the repair of damaged tissues.

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor-BB (PDGF-BB):

This growth factor is important for cell division, promoting the growth of connective tissues, blood vessels, and cell migration to the treatment site, significantly contributing to tissue repair.

Transforming Growth Factor β-1 (TGF-β1):

TGF-β1 is instrumental in regulating cell growth, production, and differentiation. It helps in the formation of new blood vessels and collagen, and is crucial for wound healing and tissue remodelling.

Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1):

Vital for cell growth and development, IGF-1 stimulates the production and differentiation of various cell types. It aids in tissue repair and regeneration.

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF):

VEGF also stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, improving blood supply to the treated area and supporting tissue healing.
