Discover the transformative benefits of PRF for a radiant and refreshed appearance

What is

What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin?

Fibrin, similar to plasma, is a mesotherapy treatment leveraging the body’s natural regenerative processes. What distinguishes fibrin is its unique capability for facial shaping and volumizing. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), a biomaterial derived from the patient’s own blood, extends beyond addressing issues under the eyes to the face, neck, hands, and neckline. It serves as a noteworthy alternative to hyaluronic acid and dermal fillers, fostering the synthesis of new collagen by facilitating the generation of stem cells and activating fibroblasts.

For Who

Who needs Platelet-Rich Fibrin PRF?

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a versatile treatment that can benefit a range of patients. PRF is commonly recommended for:


How does Male Breast Reduction / Gynecomastia Treatment work?

Platelet-rich fibrin treatment caters to individuals seeking an alternative to dermal fillers and hyaluronic acid, aiming for a natural and safe rejuvenation of the skin along with the reconstruction of lost facial volume. This treatment is recommended for those experiencing signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, facial furrows, skin laxity, diminished volume and firmness in various facial areas, as well as concerns like tear troughs and dark circles under the eyes.

The combination of the potency found in plasma and fibrin ensures enduring treatment effects. These encompass improved skin tension, deep moisturization, and regeneration of the skin, reduction of discoloration, smoothing visible wrinkles, and addressing poorly healing wounds. The treatment also extends to managing alopecia and hair loss, diminishing dark circles and shadows under the eyes, enhancing blood supply to the treatment area, removing acne scars, eradicating stretch marks, and influencing positive changes in facial volumetry.

How it works

How does the PRF procedure look like?

In the days leading up to the procedure, patients should refrain from using medications that can reduce blood clotting.

The Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) treatment offered at Hortman Clinics comprises several stages. Initially, approximately 8-16 ml of blood is drawn from the patient. Subsequently, the blood is processed under controlled conditions to yield fibrin. This results in a preparation featuring a cross-linked three-dimensional structure of fibrin fibers and a significant quantity of platelet-rich fibrin, serving as a safe alternative to hyaluronic acid or mesotherapy for skin redermalization. The entire process typically takes up to an hour and is characterized by a high level of safety since the material is derived entirely from the patient’s own blood, eliminating the risk of allergies or inflammatory complications.

Following the procedure, some patients may experience mild redness at the injection site, which naturally subsides within a few hours. The use of anesthetic cream and the small gauge of the needle contribute to making the procedure virtually painless. For optimal results, it is recommended to undergo the treatment 3 to 5 times at intervals of 3 to 4 weeks. Subsequently, a maintenance treatment is advised every 3 to 6 months.

How Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is different from Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) and PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) are both autologous platelet concentrate therapies derived from a patient’s own blood. The key distinction lies in the fibrin matrix: PRF contains a denser fibrin structure, offering a sustained release of growth factors. In contrast, PRP has a more liquid consistency due to the addition of anticoagulants during preparation. This distinction influences their applications, with PRF providing a more robust scaffold for tissue repair, while PRP is suited for scenarios requiring a more fluid delivery of growth factors. The choice between PRF and PRP depends on specific treatment goals, highlighting the importance of consulting with healthcare professionals for personalized recommendations.

The duration of a PRF treatment session can vary, but it typically takes about an hour, including the blood collection and preparation process.

To achieve the best outcomes, it is suggested to receive the treatment 3 to 5 times with intervals of 3 to 4 weeks. Following this, a maintenance treatment is recommended every 3 to 6 months.
