PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin)

A Breakthrough New Procedure

What is PRF?

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a new technique in regenerative medicine that benefits many patients. PRF is a mixture of cytokines, growth factors, and cells that are harvested from the patient’s blood. Blood is spun to form a clot with regenerative potential.

What is PRF used for?

  • Prevention of dry sockets after wisdom tooth removal
  • Regeneration of bone after tooth removal
  • Soft tissue grafting
  • Regeneration of bone after removal of cysts and other maxillofacial pathology
  • Closure of oroantral communication/fistula
  • Sinus lifts – PRF placed over sinus membrane
  • Cosmetics/Skincare – Injectable PRF used for hair and skin rejuvenation and treatment of deep
  • scarring and skin hyperpigmentation

How is the PRF procedure performed?

  • Blood Extraction - draw a small amount of blood through a virtually painless procedure
  • Blood Centrifugation - blood is processed in a centrifuge to produce PRF
  • PRF Collection & Injection - The PRF will be collected and injected into the treatment areas

Why use PRF?

Patients are benefiting from PRF in surgical applications by increasing post-operative comfort to assisting in the regeneration of natural tissues

  • Significant decrease in patient discomfort.
    PRF has been shown to reduce complications and restrictions a patient may experience. The result is a notable decrease in discomfort, post-surgical pain, and post-operation bleeding.
  • It’s 100% natural and safe and easy to produce.
    PRF is derived from a patient’s blood. PRF does not require anticoagulants, bovine thrombin, or any other foreign materials or chemicals. Patients have nearly zero risk of a foreign body reaction.
  • PRF has been shown to result in significantly faster healing.
    This process generates a fibrin network that leads to more efficient cell migration and faster cell regeneration.
