PRP (PRF) treatments, either for scalp or face (“vampire facials”, have been increasing in popularity in Brevard County cities such as Melbourne, Viera, and Merritt Island due to the results, lack of downtime, and the continued scientific data that has proven this treatment to be a true standard in natural skin rejuvenation.
PRF, or platelet rich fibrin, contains platelets and white blood cells that produce powerful growth factors that significantly magnify the rejuvenating effects of a procedure – such as microneedling, RFMN (radio frequency microneedling), scalp treatment (for hair loss). When combined with microneedling for example, PRF is topically applied to the treatment area, allowing this nutrient rich serum to penetrate deep into the layers or your skin via the microchannels created by the microneedling pen. We combine Vivace microneedling with Selphyl PRF for the best results. Patients can expect improvement in skin texture, firmness, fine lines, some types of scars, and complexion.
On the scalp, we see an improvement in health and hair growth. PRF of the scalp is done when there is early hair loss, post hair transplantation, or as a proactive measure to support hair growth. Nutrafol is a must have supplement when treating the scalp. We prefer to do a series of three to four treatments each spaced one month apart.
The fact that PRF therapy is without recovery and is all-natural has made this one of the most sought after treatments of the year, including during the summer months!
What can PRP (PRF) therapy be used with?
As mentioned above, PRF can be used with microneedling or radiofrequency microneedling. It is also used post carbon dioxide (CO2) laser resurfacing to augment results, promote cell regeneration, and reduce recovery time. The growth factors in PRF remain active for 14 days,
allowing the skin to fully utilize all the healing properties of the rejuvenating serum.
PRF can also be used as a stand alone treatment where it is injected – often in the undereye area and around the mouth to help the skin quality in these delicate areas.
The goal is to stimulate cell renewal and then trigger the production of collagen and elastin so that your skin looks younger!
Take a break from your summer and visit us in Suntree, just over the Pineda Causeway from Satellite Beach for a consultation and Selphyl PRF treatment. Of course, PRF treatments can be part of a treatment plan that includes Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport, and especially added to enhance the benefits of Sculptra for collagen stimulation and revolumization.
