“Liquid gold” is the perfect nickname for platelet-rich plasma (PRF), an injectable that comes from your own blood and harnesses your body’s natural regenerative abilities. At Amélie in Tigard, Oregon, the team uses PRF to treat skin laxity, male pattern baldness, female urinary incontinence, and much more. To find out how PRF fits into your treatment, call Amélie to request an appointment or book your visit online today.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRF) isn’t a traditional drug: It’s a formula of components from your blood that help your body heal and rejuvenate naturally. Specifically, it contains two essential parts:
Blood plasma is the yellowish liquid that carries your red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets through your veins and arteries. It consists of water and various proteins.
Platelets are a type of cell in your blood that, when activated, helps rebuild your tissues after an injury. They clot together and release growth factors to kick off the healing process.
The team at Amélie is excited to offer many enhancements using PRF to promote cell regeneration and youthfulness. Your options include:
PRF can help if you have a receding hairline or a growing bald spot. With three initial rounds of PRF injections and maintenance treatments after that, you can regrow your natural hair instead of using plugs, wigs, or hairpieces.
By combining dermal fillers with PRF, you can boost your skin’s natural collagen production for long-lasting, natural facial enhancements.
Often mistaken for a PRF face-lift, a PRF facial is a microneedling treatment with a PRF infusion. It boosts collagen and elastin growth in your skin to make it firmer, smoother, and tighter.
Aquagold is a microinjector device that uses gold-plated steel needles to create channels in your face. During an Aquagold treatment with PRF, the injector infuses a formula of PRF, dermal fillers, Botox®, and/or vitamins into your skin to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and fine lines, and lost volume.
The V-Shot is an injection of PRF for your feminine functioning. The shot revitalizes the tissues in your vagina and clitoris to improve sexual response and treat urinary incontinence.
PRF provides a number of benefits when compared to various medications and treatments with similar intentions. The main advantage of using PRF, besides its ability to stimulate cell regeneration, is its lack of side effects. Since the substance comes from your own body, you have little to no chance of rejecting it or getting an adverse reaction.
