Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF) and microneedling, A powerful combination to naturally heal damaged skin

The microneedling process has come a long way since it was first introduced in the 1990s. And at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness, we in the eponymous California community are pleased to offer the latest generation of many well-established treatments. Led by Dr. Sanda Moldovan, our skilled specialists and estheticians provide a revolutionary and powerful “twist” on the microneedling process with platelet-rich fibrin. PRF is an excellent complement to the microneedling procedure for our patients with a wide range of aesthetic concerns, from laxity around the lips to stubborn discoloration or pigment problems.

Inject youthfulness back into the skin

Microneedling with PRF is naturally built on a healthy foundation of microneedling. Treatment without PRF involves applying a device, or Dermapen®, to the targeted tissues. The device features several microneedles. These tiny needles are designed to painlessly and precisely create controlled “injuries” within the skin. As your body heals itself by closing these small wounds, collagen is produced. Collagen proteins are naturally made by the body but are in a far shorter supply as we “accumulate more birthdays.” So, triggering the renewed production of this firming protein is highly beneficial to our skin and resolving damaged tissues. As noted, treatments may be recommended to:

  • Soften wrinkles and folds
  • Improve the appearance of expression lines; for instance, “smoker’s lines” around the lips
  • Lax or sagging skin
  • Big, visible pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Scarring
  • Spots that are darker than the surrounding skin (“age spots” or hyperpigmentation)

Now, at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness, we can take your results and healing to the next level with PRF. This FDA-approved adjunct supports fast and optimal natural healing. The process is “autologous” or incredibly safe and predictable because we use your blood. Once a small sample is drawn, it is spun at high speed in a special machine (centrifuge) to separate the blood into its components. In doing so, we can isolate the stem cells that contain growth factors and healing proteins to promote regeneration.

The PRF is applied to the treatment area, triggering a process whereby the skin at the site is smoothed, firmed, and looks and feels more refreshed. Unlike platelet-rich plasma derivatives, the PRF preparation results in more natural-looking effects sustained by gradually releasing growth factors over more extended periods. PRF-assisted microneedling is also 100% natural and does not involve the introduction of extra additives or anti-coagulants.

We look forward to discussing options to put your best face and self-confidence forward. Call Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness to schedule your consultation today at (310) 692-7855, or conveniently and promptly request your consultation online. We’ll see you soon!
