PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN (PRF)
What is PRF?
PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin. PRF is a concentrated form of platelets and white blood cells obtained from a blood draw, and is used as an alternative to hyaluronic acid fillers. PRF is an autologous blood concentrate, 100% natural, free of additives and chemicals, and packed with powerful cells for skin rejuvenation purposes. It can be used for dark circles, acne scarring, skin texture, tear troughs, hair restoration, volume loss, and a whole lot more. It is truly “liquid gold.”
How Does PRF Differ from PRP?
- PRF contains a higher concentration and better quality of platelets to secrete more growth factors for rejuvenation than PRP.
- There is no anti-coagulant or synthetic additives in PRF. This enables the creation of a fibrin scaffold that will keep your growth factors active for 1 week vs. 5-10 minutes with PRP.
- PRF contains white blood cells and mesenchymal stem cells which further aid in the role of growth factors.
- Because PRF is a concentrated form of platelets, there is no platelet poor plasma present like in PRP. Every drop of PRF that is injected or used topically has the highest concentration and level of quality possible.
How Does PRF Work?
The important substances in PRF are your platelets and white blood cells. They release growth factors that are collagen/elastin stimulators. By stimulating these cells, anti-aging occurs by improving texture/tone/health of the skin and by filling in fine lines/wrinkles. Because PRF creates a fibrin scaffolding, growth factors are slowly release at the site over a one week period.
What Should I Expect During a PRF Treatment?
A small sample of your blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the PRF. PRF is first injected into various areas of the face such as the tear troughs, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, chin, etc, and can then be used topically with mincroneedling. On average, three treatments are needed to achieve the best results. These sessions should be spread out with roughly four to six weeks between each treatment. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. There is a possibility of bruising with this treatment. When scheduling your treatment, consider planned social or work commitments.

Available Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections are often used to increase healing from cosmetic procedures. In addition, PRP can be used to reduce pain from torn rotator cuffs and other soft-tissue injuries. Since the injections are made from your own blood, your body will not reject them.
PRP Facial W/ Microneedling
PRP with microneedling can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, remove scars, shrink pores, and produce an overall healthier glow. During the microneedling procedure, a highly trained nurse practitioner or doctor will use tiny needles to create micro-channels and injuries, making your skin to tighten and build collagen. Injecting PRP could improve healing and decrease redness and swelling after the procedure.
PRP hair restoration therapy is a three-step medical treatment that involves injecting concentrated plasma into the scalp. Many in the medical community think PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and help maintain hair by increasing the blood supply to the follicle.

What our clients are saying
I am so happy and thankful to have found Beauty Boost & Anisa! I came to Beauty Boost after nearly a year of research, and ultimately felt making the drive from LA to Newport would be worth it due to the dozens of 5-star reviews and results I had seen on Instagram.
Anisa and her entire team are extremely professional and very helpful. The office is immaculate and I truly didn't feel as if I was just a number but a valued client. They truly listened and cared about my needs. They answered all my questions and concerns regarding my options on fillers and what I was hoping to accomplished with realistic expectations.
Anisa is amazing! I went to her for lip fillers. The last place I went to, I wasn't satisfied with the results. (Filler above my lip) Anisa was so thorough with my consultation. She recommended I do a dissolver first, to rid some of the previous filler. So I can get the best natural results. We did that, came in for the second round and boom. I'm in love.
