PRP vs. PRF: What’s the Difference?

Both outsides and inside factors often cause skin aging. As we age, our skin loses its ability to make proteins that keep it soft and firm. When skin loses its elasticity, it forms fine lines that usually turn into wrinkles. 

But thankfully, some treatments can help, and PRF injections may be one of the best solutions for your problems. But how does it differ from PRP? Let’s see it in this post with us here at The Skin Clinic!

The Magic of PRF

PRF, which stands for platelet-rich fibrin, is a treatment to make your skin look younger and healthier. Platelet Rich Fibrin, also called “Liquid Gold,” is the best way to encourage cell growth inside the body. 

Before plasma is injected into problem areas, a patient’s blood is taken and put through a centrifuge. PRF, which stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin, can also help with hair growth, reduce the look of scars, and improve skin quality.

But how does PRF stand against PRP? Take a look at these details below. 


PRF and PRP are new ways to repair and rejuvenate your skin by using the super-healing growth factors in your blood. People often call PRP treatments vampire’s faces

With a few key differences, these treatments are very similar and work very well. Again, PRP and PRF are growth factors that are already in your blood. 

Platelets, white blood cells, and fibrin are all found in PRF, and these substances help collagen, elastin, and new skin cells grow. Both treatments work well to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, improve the tone and texture of the skin, and get rid of dark spots and other signs of aging.

PRP and PRF are usually used to treat dark circles under the eyes, smile lines, cheeks, lips, chin, and nasolabial folds. You can also put it on the scalp to make hair grow faster. Both function to firm the hands, décolleté, and neck and make the neck look younger.

So, What’s the Difference?

The most crucial difference between these treatments is how your blood is taken before treatment. With PRP, your blood is spun quickly in a centrifuge, separating the plasma layer. 

With PRF, your blood is spun slower so that some white blood cells, stem cells, and fibrin stays in the platelet layer. The slow spin also says fewer cells hurt, so more healing platelets are left. 

PRF has about ten times as many platelets as what is usually found in the body, while PRP has about 2–5 times as many. The use of anticoagulants is also a big difference. A PRP method works on a vial that already has anticoagulants in it. 

These chemicals keep the blood from clotting when it is injected. On the other side, there are ao anticoagulants added to PRF. This makes it possible for a porous fibrin matrix to form, which tells the platelets to release their growth factors slowly. 

PRP releases growth factors for a few hours and by PRF for up to a week. This slow release’s effects will be more potent and last longer. The last difference is in how each treatment is used. PRF is used as a filler, while PRP is usually done as a facial or with microneedling. 

Because fibrin and slow-release growth factors in PRF add volume to the skin, this natural filler is an excellent alternative to fillers made from chemicals. 

What To Expect At The Skin Clinic?

You may have noticed new wrinkles or a loss of volume in your face. Your skin may also have changed color or texture in different places on your body. Even though you can’t stop time, there are ways to look younger. 

People age at different rates depending on their genes, how they live, and how much time they spend in the sun, but we can help you fight back!

At The Skin Clinic, we have procedures, such as PRF or Platelet-rich fibrin, that can help you look younger again. PRF is a high-tech method that lets us use our blood to speed up healing.

Our PRF Under Eye Treatment

For brightening, adding volume, and removing fine lines, PRF is the key. PRF under-eye fillers use your stem cells to give natural results and help brighten, add volume, and eliminate fine lines. 

The PRF treatments reduce dark circles under the eyes and improve the skin’s firmness, texture, thickness, and a small amount of subdermal volume. The results of PRF under-eye treatments don’t make the eyes puffy or hold on to fluid.

PRF treatments are also the best because they can improve the skin and are better than devices that use heat to tighten the skin and dermal fillers.

Our PRF Lift

PRF injections are a natural alternative to dermal fillers and a great way to fight to age naturally and effectively. The growth factors in PRF cause collagen to be made, which gives the skin support, structure, and elasticity. 

Clinical studies have shown that this injection causes an increase in cell growth, a rise in collagen levels, and a drop in hyperpigmentation. All of these things contribute to skin that looks younger and less aged. 

Skin changes are most noticeable in places where skin problems are present, so that’s where we’ll focus.

Which One is Best?

PRP works best for people with uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, or a combination of these things. Within a month, your skin should feel better, and your blemishes and dark spots should be less noticeable.

PRP needs to be done 3–4 times, four weeks apart, for best results. PRP doesn’t work as well on deep lines or hollows. On the contrary, PRF will fix all the same problems as PRP, but it’s a better choice if you have deeper wrinkles or other signs of aging that are further along. 

PRF is often referred to as a natural filler because it is so good at adding volume. You should see results about two to three weeks after your treatment and a more significant change in four to six weeks. 

Lastly, PRF requires at least two treatments, six months apart, for optimal results. The results may differ if you combine PRF with other therapies, such as microneedling.
