What is PRP-PRF therapy?
PRP-PRF treatments use the healing power of your own blood to reduce the signs of aging, rejuvenate the skin, speed healing, and treat hair loss. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is the liquid part of your blood that is made up of water and proteins that help treated areas heal quickly. PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is the most recent advancement to PRP therapy that includes platelet cytokines and more healing factors, like white blood cells, growth factors, and stem cells. PRP-PRF therapy is commonly used as an add-on with a microneedling service or facial laser service to help produce collagen and reduce healing time. Adding PRP-PRF therapy to an aesthetic treatment will ensure that you get quicker and higher-quality results. Get the most out of your aesthetic treatment by adding this simple service!

"I am a very satisfied client! Before I decided to have 360 Lipo with Pearl Med Spa, I had two other options SculpSure heat treatments and AirSculpt. By far this 360 Tumescent Liposuction was the best decision I made. The staff and Dr. Phillip Conrardy were very attentive to my needs. They made me feel comfortable and addressed all my questions with the highest level of professionalism. Not only was I treated with a lot of patience and compassion...I was blown away with how affordable they made this procedure! I am 4 weeks post operation, and I look and feel great! I am happy to recommend this procedure to any of my friends or family looking to enhance their self esteem."- W.B. / Google / Jan 15, 2022

Am I a Candidate?
PRP-PRF therapy can reduce wrinkles and lines, improve acne scarring, and decrease the amount of downtime from getting microneedling done, as well as treat other signs of aging. PRP-PRF uses your own plasma and healing factors from a blood draw, whereas other fillers use hyaluronic acid, calcium, or other man-made substances. PRP-PRF helps more textural issues and usually takes multiple sessions but gives a lot of injectable solutions per treatment for the cost. Fillers use smaller amounts and may take fewer sessions as it volumizes the tissue more. The FDA has approved the PRP-PRF kits that are used in the platelet collection process, and they have been deemed safe. PRP-PRF has always been shown to be safe and is effective at rejuvenation and healing.
What Should I Avoid before Treatment?
To help prevent bruising, stop taking aspirin one week before your PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) injection. Three to four days prior, stop taking any fish oil, Vitamin E supplements, over-the-counter medicine, and other NSAIDs, as well as blood thinners. PRP-PRF contains platelets and signaling proteins. The platelets contain growth factors that signal your body’s regenerative cells and facilitate the regeneration of your collagen, elastin, and blood vessels.
What to Expect from a Treatment
The PRP-PRF solution is absorbed in a few days; however, the signaling continues to encourage regenerative cells and repair proteins to come to the site of injection to heal and regenerate. Activated platelets create a scaffolding of growth factors and stem cells to regenerate the tissue, including blood supply. The effects start immediately and are still working beyond 12 weeks. Annual PRP-PRF injections are helpful to address the normal ongoing cellular degenerative aging process.
