injectable platelet rich fibrin
Smart Cell Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (i-PRF) is a regenerative treatment whereby a person’s own blood is used. Blood is drawn from the individual patient by venipuncture. The blood is spun to separate Red Blood Cells,
White Cells and Plasma. The full procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Generally, 2-3 treatments are advised, however, more may be necessary for some individuals. Touch up treatments may be done once a year after the initial group of treatments to boost and maintain the results. Platelets are exceedingly small cell fragments in your blood that are involved in the clotting and healing process. When IPRF is injected into the treatment area it releases growth factors which help regenerate tissue. As a result, new collagen begins to develop. When treating injured or sun damaged tissue, this can induce a remodelling of the tissue to a healthier and younger state. Results are generally visible at 4 weeks and continue to improve gradually over ensuing months (3-6) with
improvement in texture and tone.
Current data shows results may last 18·24 months.
