There are many different options on the market for skin rejuvenation, but few of them provide a potent solution that is derived from your own body. With Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapies, you can see improvement in wrinkles, increased volume, and better skin tone via the power of your own blood. At Brandon Richland MD, we strive to deliver the best treatments with PRF and PRP Newport Beach has to offer! After a simple blood draw, a centrifuge is used to separate concentrated platelets, white blood cells, and stem cells, which can offer superior collagen regeneration and healing action.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a therapy that utilizes a concentrated form of a patient’s own blood to promote tissue regeneration and accelerate healing. PRP is made by taking a small amount of a patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets, which contain growth factors and other healing proteins. Once the platelets are concentrated, they are injected back into the patient’s body at the site of concern. This injection delivers a high concentration of biologically potent healing mechanisms, which can promote healing and tissue regeneration.
Platelet-Rich Plasma can promote cell growth, tissue repair, and collagen production. Here are some potential benefits that may be obtained from PRP treatment:
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a more robust platelet concentrate that is derived from your blood. PRF contains a very high concentration of growth factors and other positive components that can promote tissue regeneration and accelerate collagen production. Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy involves the use of a specialized centrifuge that can spin the blood at a specific speed and duration to produce a fibrin-rich clot which can then be used to promote rejuvenation. Overall, PRF therapy is a promising treatment option with a straightforward procedure and no additives.
PRF therapy may provide a variety of benefits for patients, including reduced inflammation, accelerated healing, improved collagen and elastin production, and more. Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy can help promote healthy skin and lead to an improved quality of life for patients.
Additionally, PRF can be spun and converted into a gel that can be used as a dermal filler. PRF as filler is advantageous in the treatment of crepey skin, pigmented under eye hollows, and diffuse volume loss across the face. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that are synthetically derived, PRF filler is an all-natural, autologous biostimulating and volumizing filler for facial hollowing/volume loss. Due to its nature, PRF gel filler requires a series of three treatments to achieve lasting volumization. However, PRF can also be combined with synthetic dermal fillers to deliver both skin enhancement and immediate, long-lasting volumization.
Some general benefits of PRF may include:
While both of these therapies provide similar benefits, PRF offers a few advantages, such as:
Of the two, PRF is a newer and more advanced form of platelet therapy. While PRP uses a concentrated solution of platelets and growth factors, PRF takes this a step further by incorporating a fibrin matrix, a natural protein that forms a protective layer over the wound site and promotes the growth of new tissue. This fibrin matrix helps to retain the platelets and growth factors at the site of the injury or treatment area for a longer period of time, which may result in better and more sustained healing effects.
Additionally, PRF has been found to have a higher concentration of platelets than PRP, which further enhances its therapeutic potential. Some studies have also suggested that PRF may have a stronger anti-inflammatory effect than PRP, which can help to reduce pain and swelling in the treated area.
Ultimately, the best way to determine which one is right for you is to consult with an experienced cosmetic physician.
Great candidates for Platelet-Rich Plasma and Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy typically have skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, crepey skin texture, acne scars, or facial hollowing that can effectively be treated with this method, and are seeking a non-surgical, low to no downtime treatment. There may be certain health conditions or factors that could disqualify an individual from receiving PRP and PRF treatments. Some potential contraindications include blood disorders or clotting issues, cancer or previous chemotherapy treatment, and allergies to blood products or components.
The consultation and preparation for Platelet-Rich Plasma and Platelet-Rich Fibrin treatments are important steps to ensure that this technique is safe, effective, and meets the patient’s specific needs. Some key considerations include reviewing the benefits and potential risks of the treatment, as well as any alternatives. To prepare, our Newport Beach PRP and PRF therapy patients are typically asked to avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications and to drink plenty of water for the 72 hours prior to their procedure.
