How is PRF derived?
PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) is derived from whole blood. During your visit, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, similar to a basic lab test. The patient’s blood is then placed into a centrifuge. During the centrifugation process, the red blood cells, white blood cells, and other inflammatory cytokines are separated from plasma, which contains platelets along with several platelet derived growth factors. Once the platelet-rich Fibrin is separated, it is drawn up into a syringe and injected into the desired treatment area, similar to dermal filler.
