PRF injections are taking the aesthetics industry by storm and for a good reason. This innovative procedure harnesses the power of your own body to rejuvenate your skin, providing natural, long-lasting results. Let’s break down what PRF injections are, how they’re different from PRP, and what they can do for your skin.

What Are PRF Injections?

PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) injections utilize the healing properties of your own blood to stimulate skin rejuvenation. The process involves drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells. This potent mixture is then injected into targeted areas of your skin, where it boosts collagen production and promotes tissue regeneration.

Are PRF and PRP the Same Thing?

While PRF and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) are both derived from your blood, they have distinct differences.

  • PRF contains a higher concentration of platelets and fibrin than PRP.
  • PRF stays active longer than PRP, up to several days rather than several hours.
  • It doesn’t require anticoagulants or activators, making it a more natural and efficient option.
  • PRF releases growth factors more slowly and steadily than PRP, providing longer-lasting results.

PRF Injections vs. Fillers

PRF injections and dermal fillers are both used to enhance facial contours and reduce signs of aging, but they work in different ways.


Fillers, such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite, add volume to specific areas of the face to smooth out wrinkles and folds.


PRF Injections

PRF injections stimulate your body’s natural collagen production, improving skin quality and texture from within. This results in a more gradual, natural-looking improvement in your skin’s appearance. Dr. Brunner uses EZ PRF Gel, which instantly adds volume to your skin, similar to a traditional filler, while also offering long-lasting improvements through collagen production.


Benefits of PRF Injections

PRF injections offer a wide range of benefits for those seeking to rejuvenate their appearance:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Diminishes dark circles and swelling under the eyes
  • Treats enlarged pores
  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • Plumps the lips

Because PRF injections use components in your blood, they also:

  • Provides long-lasting results
  • Has fewer risks and side effects than traditional injectables
  • Takes only minutes to inject
  • Is 100% natural

EZ PRF Gel also pairs well with biostimulators, like Radiesse®, and volumizing fillers, like Restylane®, for enhanced skin rejuvenation. Dr. Brunner often recommends one of these combinations for better, longer-lasting results.

Potential Side Effects and Risks

As PRF injections use your own blood, the risk of side effects is minimal. However, some minor side effects may occur:

  • Bruising at the injection site
  • Swelling and redness
  • Tenderness or discomfort

These side effects typically resolve within a few days, similar to fillers and neuromodulator injections.
