Your Key to Confidence
PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, a natural substance derived from a patient's blood. PRF injections involve drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and processing it to isolate and concentrate the platelets and growth factors. The resulting PRF is then injected into specific areas of the body to stimulate tissue regeneration and healing. In recent years, PRF injections have gained popularity in cosmetic medicine as a natural alternative to traditional dermal fillers and other anti-aging treatments.
PRF injections can enhance the appearance of the face, neck, and hands by stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture, tone, and elasticity. The treatment can also improve the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Refreshing for Everyone
PRF injections are generally considered safe and effective, as they use the patient's own blood and do not involve the use of synthetic substances or chemicals. These treatments are great for improving your skin’s health, getting rid of signs of aging, and even promoting hair growth in men.
If you are looking for a more natural alternative to enhancing your skin’s appearance and health, PRF injections may be the perfect option for you. Good candidates for PRF injections are patients who want to restore a youthful radiance to their skin, promote hair growth, or wish to get rid of blemishes and scars quicker. PRF injections contain only the patient’s DNA, meaning these treatments are completely safe for most pregnant or breastfeeding women.

The Power of PRF
When you arrive for PRF Injections Charlotte aesthetic specialists will clean your arm thoroughly before drawing blood. Like a blood test, the specialist will draw a small amount of blood into a vial. The blood will be placed in a special centrifuge and spun at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The resulting PRF is then collected in a syringe. The PRF is injected into specific body areas, such as the forehead or neck, using a fine needle.
Better Tone and Texture
You will see full results from the first treatment in about four to six weeks. Your aesthetic specialist will inform you when to return for your subsequent treatment, as your results will improve each visit. The results of PRF injections can last anywhere from several months to a year or more, depending on the individual. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and good skincare habits, to help prolong the effects of the treatment.
Look Younger Naturally
For the first two to three days following your treatment, mild swelling, redness, or bruising may occur at the injection sites. Over the first week to two weeks, you should start to notice some improvement in the treated areas as the PRF stimulates the body's natural collagen production. However, avoiding strenuous activity or exposing the treated areas to extreme temperatures or sunlight is essential, as these can interfere with healing.
Initially, PRF injections can be slightly uncomfortable during the blood draw, but you should not feel any pain other than a slight pinch. The injections are said to also feel like a small pinch, though they are not considered painful. A cold compress can alleviate discomfort if any of your injection sites feel sore or lightly bruised.
After PRF Injections Charlotte patients typically experience minimal side effects after PRF injections, such as mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites. Rarely, patients may experience more severe complications, such as infection or allergic reaction. Following the advised aftercare instructions can significantly minimize any chances of side effects.
Every patient is different, meaning you may need more or fewer injections than others. Typically, patients get about four PRF injection treatments with a month in between to give their body time to process. Your aesthetic specialist can provide you with a more accurate treatment plan timeline at your consultation.
