Give Your Cells a Natural Boost
Serving Houma, LA, and beyond, Roberts Aesthetics and Wellness offers PRF injections, an innovative method of stimulating cellular rejuvenation to treat a variety of cosmetic and functional issues. You might’ve heard about an athlete getting hurt, but did you ever wonder how the pros get back to doing what they’re best at so fast? In many cases, the secret is PRF (platelet rich fibrin). But PRF isn’t just for healing damaged tissue. This revolutionary treatment that uses the body’s own building blocks to promote cellular healing can also be used for hair regrowth and skin rejuvenation. Read on to learn more about what PRF can do for you.
Healthy Cells for Healthy Skin and Hair
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a fibrin matrix that acts as a resorbable membrane, trapping platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells. Recent research has demonstrated that autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRF) can be used in various medical procedures. In the cosmetic world, PRF injections made just under the skin yield impressive results when used to rejuvenate, lift, and smooth skin on the face, hands, and elsewhere. PRF injections can also be used on the scalp to stimulate natural hair regrowth.
In addition to neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau, we also offer platelet-rich fibrin injectables to add your body’s own restorative powers to your injectable treatment plan. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is like a second generation of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
PRF is an all-natural solution that can rejuvenate areas in the face that show the first signs of aging, like under-eyes, deflated cheeks, smile lines, lips, and the scalp, for hair restoration. PRF is derived from a simple blood draw done in-office. The whole blood is then spun down in a centrifuge. The PRF is drawn from the tubes. Depending on the treatment, different types of PRF can be generated, such as liquid PRF, concentrated liquid PRF, or PRF gel filler. If it is a simple liquid PRF session, such as for the under-eyes, then the procedure only takes about 15 minutes. If PRF gel filler is chosen for the treatment, the process takes an additional 15 minutes since it requires a few more steps in the preparation process.
Plasma is the liquid component of your blood that is mainly composed of water and protein. It allows red and white blood cells, as well as platelets, to circulate in your body. Platelets are blood cells that help your blood clot and help in healing. When platelets enter the area being treated, they degrade and release growth factors, which are substances that aid in cell repair and renewal. This starts the mending process in your body. PRF injections can boost collagen and elastin production to repair damaged skin, smooth wrinkles, and even regrow hair on the scalp.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) includes active restorative characteristics that aid in skin rejuvenation. Benefits from PRF may be greater than those from PRP because of the slower rate at which its growth factors are released. Regenerative effects will be further enhanced with the use of PRF gel. PRF gel operates as a scaffold for the formation of regeneration tissue, and the PRF will continue to stimulate growth factors for up to six months post injection with PRF gel.

We can’t wait to show you what PRF injections can do to improve your appearance and boost your confidence.
A Quick and Effective Treatment
Before getting PRP injections, you shouldn't take aspirin or ibuprofen, which can thin your blood. Certain vitamins or supplements, such as omega-3 fatty acids, may also require a pause. During your consultation, we'll go through exactly what you need to do to prepare for your procedure. To begin your appointment for PRF injections Houma providers will draw some blood from you and place it into a centrifuge where your own platelets can be concentrated. The platelets are then put into syringes and injected into the treatment area. Your provider will gently make the injections at strategic locations to promote the greatest possible healing and regeneration.
Depending on how many areas you want treated, a volume of blood will be taken. This is usually between 10 to 30 ml. PRF can treat many concerns, such as facial rejuvenation, acne scars, under-eye hollowness, and hair loss.
Upon arrival to your appointment, blood will be drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge. After it is spun and separated, the PRF is injected into the area. The PRF promotes wound healing and regenerates collagen and elastin growth in the injected area.
The treatment begins with microneedling with Radiofrequency to create micro-channels in the tissue. PRF is then spread on top of the microchannels to allow deeper penetration of the growth factors. This expedites healing post-treatment and enhances overall skin quality.
PRF can also be successfully used to treat thinning hair and hair loss, particularly male pattern baldness. Just as with facial rejuvenation, blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge. After it is spun and separated, the PRF is injected directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. Injections are made approximately at every half inch over the area of thinning hair. The PRF helps stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promotes new hair growth.
Your Skin Will Thank You
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau start working around day seven, and maximum results are seen on day 14. Dosing is customized based on many factors during your consultation, such as skin quality, prior experiences, areas being treated, and budget constrictions. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 3-4 months to maintain your results. PRF results can start to appear in as little as 29 days.
It is recommended that patients receive a minimum of three PRF (liquid) injection treatments at four and six-week intervals for maximum results. If PRF gel is utilized, the retreatment is performed at two months to achieve optimum results. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 6-12 months to maintain optimal results. Dermal Filler results can be seen right away. Dermal filler enhancements are needed every 6-12 months to ensure optimal results.
Ready, Set, Rejuvenate
Some discomfort and bruising may occur where the injections were given. Right away, the PRF injections will boost cellular rejuvenation and begin to produce results that continue to improve over the coming days and weeks. Your provider can recommend a course of treatment, including any follow-up sessions needed to achieve an optimal outcome.
Maintaining your PRF results: For best results, follow-up sessions may be recommended in the months after your initial injection procedure. Your provider will help you plan a course of treatment that fits your goals, timeline, and budget.
With all injections, you may feel a poke of the needle and gentle pressure as the PRF is administered into your skin. Some patients have said they feel soreness or tenderness afterward.
Since it’s your own blood, the risks are low but may include the possibility of infection, pain at the injection site, and nerve damage.
