At Advanced Practice Medical Aesthetics, Patty Stewart, FNP-BC, harnesses your body’s healing power to rejuvenate your skin or restore your hair growth. With platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), she uses a completely natural treatment to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Patty offers complimentary consultations and forms an individualized staging plan for your consideration.
Platelet-rich fibrin or PRF is a solution. The process starts with her taking a very small sample of your blood and placing it into a centrifuge.
If you’ve heard of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), PRF is similar — but more effective. It has a higher concentration of platelets and white blood cells than PRP, triggering greater regeneration when applied. Also, the fibrin itself provides a scaffolding for the cells of the PRF as they go to work in your body, protecting them so you get the best results.
Patty uses PRF for two distinct purposes: skin rejuvenation and hair restoration.
PRF is a natural and safe treatment, rejuvenation is primarily the result, although after first injected, a volumization effect does occur. After preparing the PRF, Patty injects most of the product in various trouble areas on the face and neck with a cannula or needle, the areas are numbed prior to injection. The PRF can be microneedles and used with a subcision technique to improve skin surface issues and scarring. This PRF stimulates collagen production, which contributes to thicker, more elastic, lifted skin.
As a result, PRF is effective for:
Multiple platelet-rich fibrin treatments deliver the most dramatic skin rejuvenation results. Talk with Patty about your skin goals, and she can customize a PRF treatment program for you.
When used for hair growth, PRF stimulates hair follicles that are dormant to start producing hair. The hairs are thicker and sometimes the follicle produces more than one hair while improving blood flow to nourish the follicle to sustain the growth.
Patty injects the PRF over the entire scalp, focusing on areas that are scarce. Patty recommends three treatments, spaced one month apart, and sometimes recommends adding stem cell therapies to deliver an even more robust response.
Individualizing a program for each patient is the key to success. The program will also include other therapies, both oral and topical to enhance and maintain results. Complimentary consultation by Patty will assure that you are well informed and prepared for the treatment course.
