The Science Behind PRF: How It Works for Anti-Aging and Healing

Have you heard of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and its use in facial rejuvenation treatments? It’s a relatively new procedure yet shows considerable promise as an anti-aging tool. Working with your body’s natural regenerative abilities, PRF seeks to revitalize dull complexions from the inside out. In this blog post, we will explore how it works and what the science behind PRF tells us about healing and rejuvenating skin cells for a more youthful appearance.

At AMG Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ, we offer PRF treatments that promote youthfulness and skin rejuvenation. Our PRF treatments are a natural way to improve skin texture, elasticity, and overall appearance. We are committed to providing quality aesthetic services that address your needs with care and precision.

What Is PRF?

PRF stands for “platelet rich fibrin,” a type of treatment that uses a patient’s blood to promote healing and rejuvenation. This procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and processing it to concentrate the platelets and growth factors in the blood.

These platelets and growth factors are injected into the patient’s skin or other body areas where healing or rejuvenation is needed. The platelets release growth factors that stimulate the growth of new cells and blood vessels, which improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote faster wound healing.

How Does PRF Work for Anti-Aging and Healing?

Here are the ways that PRF works for anti-aging and healing in simple terms:

Stimulates Collagen Production

PRF treatment stimulates collagen production, a protein that gives the skin its elasticity and firmness. Increased collagen production reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Promotes Cell Growth and Regeneration

The growth factors and cytokines found in PRF promote cell growth and regeneration, which can help to improve skin texture and tone.

Enhances Skin Hydration

PRF treatment can enhance skin hydration, improving the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Accelerates Wound Healing

PRF treatment can accelerate the healing of wounds and injuries by promoting the growth of new tissues and blood vessels.

Reduces Inflammation

PRF treatment has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce swelling and inflammation in injured or damaged tissues.

What Are the Benefits of PRF Treatments?

PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) treatments have become increasingly popular in rejuvenating the skin and improving its appearance in recent years. Some potential benefits of PRF treatments for anti-aging include:

Minimal Downtime

PRF treatments are minimally invasive and typically require little to no downtime. Patients can usually continue their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Natural Results

PRF treatments use a patient’s blood to create a serum, so there is a reduced risk of allergic reactions or other adverse effects. The results of PRF treatments tend to be natural-looking and subtle.

Long-Lasting Results

While individual results may vary, the effects of PRF treatments for anti-aging can last for several months or longer. Regular treatments help maintain the results over time.

How Can We Enhance Your PRF Treatments?

We are constantly striving to provide the most effective and efficient treatments possible. With the use of our PicoSure Laser and Morpheus technology, we can enhance your PRF treatments and achieve optimal results:

PicoSure Laser

The PicoSure laser is a medical device that uses ultra-short energy pulses to treat various skin conditions, including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation. When combined with PRF treatment, the PicoSure laser can enhance the results of PRF by further stimulating collagen production and promoting skin cell turnover.

The PicoSure laser creates tiny holes in the skin, which triggers your body’s natural healing response. This includes the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which can improve skin texture, tone, and firmness. By combining PicoSure laser treatment with PRF, patients may experience even more dramatic skin rejuvenation and healing improvements.


Morpheus8 is a medical device that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling to promote skin rejuvenation and tightening. When used in conjunction with PRF, Morpheus8 can enhance the results of PRF treatment by further stimulating collagen production and promoting skin cell turnover.

The RF energy delivered by Morpheus8 penetrates deep into the skin, where it can stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This can improve skin texture, tone, and firmness and help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

How Often Can You Have PRF Treatments?

The frequency of PRF treatments for anti-aging can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition, age, and desired outcomes. In general, waiting at least four to six weeks between PRF treatments is recommended to allow the skin to heal and regenerate fully. While some individuals may see noticeable improvements after a PRF treatment, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results.

What Makes You a Candidate for PRF Treatments?

If you are curious whether PRF treatments are appropriate, the best way to determine this is through a consultation with our team of experts. PRF treatments harness the power of your blood platelets to promote healing and tissue regeneration. 

Individuals who may benefit from PRF treatments include those seeking to improve skin texture and tone, address issues such as hair loss, or seek a more natural approach to healing after surgical procedures. Ultimately, our team can assess your needs and determine whether PRF treatments fit you well.

Trying the stem wave today. Have had issues with my back over 25yrs. I have actually been thru surgery in 2014. It did help me not to end up an involed, but I still suffer with pain. I'm hoping this helps with pain, so I can hopefully get off medication. I'm hoping for less downtime in my life and a more enjoyable life! 😉

Dr. B and Dr. G are constantly exploring new technologies and therapies to provide their patients with state-of-the-art procedures to address everything from aesthetic treatments to pain management. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and it’s evident that they care deeply about their patients’ wellbeing. I underwent StemWave therapy in the office and felt an immediate improvement in my shoulder and knee pain. What I love about AMG and am most impressed with is that they are constantly ahead of the curve in regenerative medicine as an alternative to traditional invasive procedures. At AMG you are treated as part of the family.
