PRF Injections: What Are They?
PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin. It is a concentration of platelets and growth factors isolated from your blood through a simple centrifugation process. When expertly injected into areas of concern, PRF Injections stimulates cellular regeneration and tissue repair.
Common PRF therapy treatments include:
– PRF facials – Revives skin tone, texture, plumpness and glow
– PRF hair restoration – Stimulates hair growth and thickness
– PRF joint injections – Reduces inflammation and pain
– PRF microneedling – Combines PRF with collagen induction therapy
The many growth factors in PRF support your body’s own healing mechanisms for natural revitalization without surgery.
How Do PRF Injections Work?
During PRF therapy, your provider will first draw a vial of your blood, usually from your arm. This blood then undergoes centrifugation to separate and concentrate the PRF. Local numbing is often applied before injections.
Using an ultrafine needle, your provider will strategically inject the PRF into the targeted treatment areas. For example, this may be the face for a PRF facial or the scalp for hair restoration.
Once injected, the growth factors and proteins in the PRF begin signaling your body’s regenerative processes. This stimulates cell proliferation, new tissue and collagen production, and other healing cascades tailored to the injected area.
Over a series of treatments, PRF progressively enhances the targeted tissue for natural-looking improvements that continue evolving over time. Maintenance sessions sustain the benefits.

How Soon Will I See Results From PRF Injections?
Many patients notice an immediate glow and plumping effect after their first PRF facial session as the skin is volumized. However, it takes a few weeks for your body to fully stimulate new collagen growth using the growth factors.
Most patients report seeing significant improvements in tone, texture, fine lines, and sagging skin around the 6-8 week mark following a series of PRF facial treatments. The regenerative effects continue over the next 3-6 months with ongoing refinements.
The gradual timeline allows for subtle, natural-looking enhancement. Full effects are seen once the collagen regenerative process has completed. Follow all recommended sessions and be patient as your most vibrant complexion unveils.

How Long Do PRF Injection Results Last?

Consistent maintenance PRF injections keep regenerating tissue, promoting smooth, youthful skin, a full head of hair or pain-free joints over the long term. Be diligent with follow-up appointments for lasting improvements.
