Platelet-Rich Fibrin in Calgary
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is taken from your own blood sample along with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and injected into facial areas to improve volume and contouring. Using the healing potential of our own blood, PRF and PRP have been game-changers in the skincare industry.
At Vive Med Spa, we support the opportunity to use the body’s natural healing properties to give our clients a boost. Check out this page for more detailed information regarding our PRF services, and be sure to contact us to schedule your PRF consultation with our team!
What is PRF Used For?
PRF, along with PRP, is primarily used to promote healing and cellular stimulation along with volume correction in the treatment areas. Fibrin stimulates stem cells, which in turn can improve elastin and collagen in the skin. As you may know, collagen and elastin are crucial for both the healthy function and healthy look of skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Platelet-rich fibrin has been shown to work well on most areas of the face and neck area. Below are just some of the conditions where PRF can be used for a contoured and lifted appearance and youthful silhouette. PRF is a great procedure to address:
- Deep folds
- Fine lines
- Volume loss
- Tear troughs
- Deflated cheeks
- Creases around the mouth and lower face

What To Expect During the PRF Process
The process for a PRF injection is quite similar to the process for PRP. When you come in for your injection, our team will first draw a vial of your own blood to be used for the injection. Your blood sample is placed in a centrifuge designed to isolate fibrin, and then the product is prepared for injection into specific areas of the face to improve volume loss and contouring. PRF can be used on its own or along with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, depending on the client’s goals.
How Long Until I See Results?
The time to see results of PRF injections can vary depending on how many injections are used, the areas it is applied in, supporting products/treatments, and various other factors. However, on average, immediate results can be noticed after each treatment and you’ll continue to see improvement over 4 weeks. Most clients will receive 3 – 4 treatments on a monthly basis. The long-term benefits of PRF, like skin tightening and enhanced collagen production, may take some time to see the end result and can last up to a year in most cases.
