PRF Gel


 

Age in Reverse!!!!

Introducing All-natural Facial Rejuvenation

 

Who should get PRF Gel?

Patients desiring “natural” treatments who are hesitant to have fillers and other more invasive procedures. Or, are afraid of looking “too done” like some Hollywood celebrities. PRF is 100% safe. There is no possibility of an allergic reaction since it comes from your body. There are no additives in the tube.   

 

PRP, PRFM, PRFM Gel – What are they?

RP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and PRFM (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix) and PRFM Gel are created from your body’s own blood. PRP, PRFM, and PRFM (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix) Gel are all natural products which contain growth factors that heal and generate new skin. When injected into specific areas of the skin, they promote your own collagen to naturally smooth and tighten skin, softening wrinkles while improving skin texture and tone. The Platelet-Rich Fibrin Gel technique uses the latest generation of Smart Blood Concentrates to generate a complex Fibrin Matrix rich in Platelets, Leukocytes and Mesenchymal stem cells.

 

Where is PRFM (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix) Gel Used?

To Restore the Facial Foundation/Infrastructure:

Tear Troughs – sunken area under eyes and dark circles

Rejuvenate Fat Pads of the Face/Cheeks

Stimulate Bone formation

Smile Lines

Lower third of the face/jawline

 

How is PRF Gel Prepared?

First, the patient’s blood is drawn. Then, it is spun at a higher speed to obtain the albumin component which is then heated. While the heating is taking place, the other portion of the blood is spun at a lower speed to obtain growth factors and stem cells. The gel is then injected into the desired areas using a micro-cannula. It is ideal for treating areas where fillers and bio-stimulators cannot be used easily such as the under-eye area, perioral (around the mouth) area and the brow region for hair stimulation. This unmodified gel solution is obtained by isolating beneficial cells and growth factors in harvested plasma, heating then cooling this enriched concentrate to create a natural and smooth bio-stimulating gel.

 

What is the PRF Gel advantage over PRP and PRFM alone?

The Growth Factors in PRFM Gel are released longer locally after injection. This results in the constant release of Growth factors and interleukins which accelerate tissue healing and regenerating processes.

 

How does PRFM Gel reverse aging?

As we age, we lose collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, fat, muscle and bone. We begin to produce less collagen in our twenties. After menopause, lines and wrinkles, dryness, sensitivity, dullness, decreaed elasticity and sagging of the skin occur. PRFM is injected in two sessions 6 weeks apart. One session is injected in a fashion to promote the restoration of the fat pads and collagen. During the second session, the injections are done a bit deeper to aid in bone restoration. PRFM Gel is a bio-stimulating gel which revolutionizes facial rejuvenation.

 

Dr. Dyson’s Experience

Dr. Dyson was the first physician in Washington D.C. to inject the Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix known as Selphyl in 2011. She has since added EZ PRF (Platelet Rich fibrin) and most recently EZ PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) Gel. She has been injecting PRF to rejuvenate the skin and for hair restoration since her initial training in 2011.

 

How soon after the first treatment will I see results?

Results are generally seen 3 to 6 weeks after the procedure and peak at 9 to 12 weeks.

 

How many PRFM Gel treatments will I need?

Two treatments - 6 weeks apart

 

What is the cost of the procedure?

The cost of the procedure is $2500 per treatment.

 

What is in your blood plasma (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix)?

GROWTH FACTORS!

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)

Plays a significant role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation and differentiation during the remodeling phase. Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast production.

Transforming Growth Factor (TGF)

Promotes angiogenesis which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels.

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor

An important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis that may help the growth of blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature.

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)

Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization for the intricate process of Tissue repairing itself after injury.

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)

Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to the zone of injury. Promotes collagen growth and proteoglycan synthesis.

Interleukins, Macrophages, Keratinocytes, Endothelial Cells, Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts, Basophils, Mast Cells

Activates fibroblast differentiation. Induces collagen and proteoglycan synthesis for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues.

Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor

Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation for the growth of healthy tissue and blood cells.

Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)

Keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferations may optimize conditions for healing and the generation of new skin.
