Caring for your skin — and yourself — is essential. At the Lind Institute, we pride ourselves on delivering the finest non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in Houston.
We have selected a wide array of the most transformative and minimally invasive treatments for the face, including facial services such as the PRF facial. These facials will leave your skin evenly toned, refreshed, and glowing.
What is PRF, and how is it obtained?
PRF, or platelet-rich fibrin, is the next-generation treatment of platelet concentrate. PRF contains platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells that promote:
- Skin rejuvenation
- Hair growth
- Wound healing
Because PRF comes from your blood, it is 100% natural. Before your PRF facial, one vial of blood is drawn and placed inside a centrifuge, separating PRF from other blood components. After spinning, the PRF is combined with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to enhance facial volume.
Using blood concentrates for aesthetic treatment is becoming increasingly popular in medical aesthetics to help men and women achieve a younger and fresher look. PRF is said to be the next step in the evolution of natural skin and hair rejuvenation.
What is a PRF facial?
Fibrin acts as a scaffold that forms in response to an injury in the body. This response produces growth factors. Injecting PRF into the face creates a controlled inflammatory response and initiates new cell growth and collagen production.
PRF facials release growth factors for up to one week, producing longer-term benefits by stimulating the stem cells to improve collagen and elastin in the skin. Once injected, PRF can:
- Fill facial folds and wrinkles
- Plump the hollows under the eyes and dark circles
- Improve skin tone and texture
What are the benefits of a PRF facial?
A PRF facial is one of the only non-surgical treatments that successfully improve the skin under the eyes, possibly the most significant benefit. As some of the thinnest skin on our body, it is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. While other undereye tightening treatments exist, they are generally heat-based and are not as gently effective as a PRF facial.
PRF facials can also enhance facial fillers’ results, instantly improving hollowness under the eyes. Injecting PRF in addition to dermal fillers can significantly improve the results of the fillers by tightening the loose skin under the eyes and lightening dark circles.
Other notable benefits of a PRF facial include the following:
- A natural treatment
- Our team can combine it with SkinPen microneedling
- Eliminates wrinkles and facial folds
- Improves skin texture
- Improves acne scars
- Long-term effects such as skin tightening, collagen production, and enhanced skin quality
Am I a good candidate for a PRF facial?
Most people are good candidates for PRF treatments. PRF can thin hyaluronic acid filler for a smoother, more natural-looking injection for patients seeking filler treatments but with delicate skin. A good candidate knows that PRF facials are performed in a series of treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart.
PRF facial results can last up to three weeks before the volume dissipates. Long-term effects may take up to four months to be noticed but can last up to twelve months. Expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment are usually visible six weeks after initial treatment.
