Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (i-PRF) is the next generation of PRP
PRP (often called the 'Vampire Facial') has been improved upon with i-PRF. It offers an innovative concept to overcome previous limitations within regenerative medicine. i-PRF offers excellent cell viability and bio compatibility with superior tissue regeneration. This advanced form of Platelet Rich Plasma does not use anticoagulants or other chemical-based additives, therefore offers a completely natural treatment to improve volume loss, photo damage, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, poor texture, and hair restoration. What's more, the concentration of growth factors within the i-PRF sample is much higher than in PRP, giving better more noticeable results.
For patients with significant hair loss, then a combined approach with transplant procedures is needed. i-PRF works well for both men and women, especially those in the early stages of hair loss but is particularly effective post hair transplant procedures, such as below.
Hair loss can be a natural part of our bodies functional cycle occurring in the hair follicle. There are three phases to this cycle;
- Exogen (shedding phase)
- Telogen (resting phase)
- Anagen (growth phase)
Should multiple follicles of the hair be in the resting phase of the bodies cycle at the same time the hair can appear to be thinning.
i-PRF has been shown to extend the growth phase and increase the amount of blood supply to the hair follicles. This ultimately results in a fuller scalp.
Treatment consists of multiple injections into the scalp followed by micro-needling at the same appointment, and then follow up treatments of Keravive (via Hydrafacial), and also home care. Treatment results will be seen in a relatively short time, but full results and can take longer, with i-PRF treatment needed every 1-2 months.
Synergistic treatments are highly effective. i-PRF improves the skin health, thus improving results from other aesthetic treatments, i-PRF Facial is the gold standard in natural skin treatments to increase the production of collagen, and for anyone who wants to look refreshed and improve the appearance and condition of their skin.
iPRF combined with Micro-needling or Radio frequency Micro-needling can give the ultimate 'natural' result
Controlled mild damage to your skin triggers the healing process that rejuvenates the skin. This encourages collagen production and reduces the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles and imperfections. When combined with your own Growth Factors the procedure 'stamps' Microscopic channels into the skins matrix, injecting the 'good stuff'. At the same time, it stimulates your own natural repair response to give intense cosmetic results.
How Does i-PRF Smart Cell work?
David will take a small amount of blood from the arm, which is centrifuged to separate the cells, allowing the conditioned plasma to be extracted and used. The growth factors and platelets become trapped within the three-dimensional fibrin matrix and released slowly to trigger cellular renewal, skin remodeling and stem cell stimulation.
i-PRF 'Face Lift'...?
Using iPRF and a Cannula Technique the aim is to use the least amount of entry points but reach multiple treatment areas, with the benefit of less pain, reduced risk of bruising and minimal downtime.
With Facial Mapping the treatment goals are:
- Symmetry on both sides of the face
- Smooth contours
- Even skin tone and texture
The transition between the anatomical regions of the face should be subtle and harmonious.
Treatment areas from just 3 injection points are:
- Mid face
- Tear Troughs
- Nose to Lip lines
- Marionettes (lip to chin lines)
- Jaw contouring
