PRP, PRF and PBF Treatment

Here at Artemedica, we’re constantly on the lookout for the next best thing in cosmetic procedures. And right now, we’re obsessed with natural alternatives borrowed from the world of regenerative medicine: platelet-rich concentrates. In fact, we already offer one such treatment: platelet-rich plasma (PRP). However, there are many more ways we can harness the body’s natural healing potential through PRP, PRF and PBF treatment to promote tissue regeneration, reverse signs of aging and even restore hair loss.

What is PRP? 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is your blood, just with a higher concentration of platelets. Platelets contain key growth factors that have significant effect on cellular healing and regeneration. There are two key components to platelet-rich plasma, and they are both 100% natural and come from your own body:   

  • Plasma: the liquid part of your blood; 
  • Platelet: a type of blood cell vital to your body’s healing process and full of growth properties. 

The growth factors in platelet-rich plasma regenerate damaged cells and boost collagen and elastin production. As a result, PRP is excellent for improving skin tone and texture and reversing signs of aging. 

What is PRF? 

Platelet-rich fibrin, also known as PRF, is a second-generation PRP concentrate. When your clinician produces PRP from your blood, they use an anticoagulant to prevent your sample from clotting. With PRF production, no coagulant is used which allows fibrin to form. The sample is also spun slower in the centrifuge to preserve a higher concentration of platelets as well as: 

  • Fibrinogen: a glycoprotein that encourages blood clotting; 
  • Stem cell: a type of cell that self-renewals and replenishes rapidly lost cell types; 
  • White blood cell: a type of blood cell that participate in the body’s immune system.

This thicker fibrin matrix not only retains a stronger concentration of growth factors, but also signals the platelets to release their growth factors more slowly. And because the release is so slow and prolonged, PRF is ideal for tissue regeneration and growth stimulation.  

What is PBF? 

If PRF is a better version of PRP, then imagine that pure biofill is a better version of PRF. With pure biofill (PBF), your PRF sample is spun and immediately placed in a temperature-controlled warming chamber to transform your sample into a gel.  

The gel structure of PBF allows the resulting fibrin matrix to stay in place longer. Whereas PRP releases platelets over the course of a few hours and PRF over the course of a few days, PBF releases platelets over the course of a few weeks for maximum efficacy. Plus, the gel consistency localizes the platelets and their growth factors for concentrated application. 

PRP, PRF and PBF treatments at Artemedica 

PRP, PRF and PBF can be used in a variety of treatments due to their amazing ability to repair and strengthen skin.  

Injectable fillers

Fillers with PRP, PRF or PBF are perfect for both men and women who want to smooth away signs of aging in delicate areas like under the eyes and around the nose and mouth.  

By injecting a small sample into your problem areas, PRP, PRF or PBF treatment creates an immediate, natural fullness in the treated area. Plus, it also increases collagen and elastin production for long-lasting results that improve with time. 

Vampire facial

Vampire facials are perfect for both men and women who want to diminish signs of aging or rejuvenate their complexion.  

We take a small sample of your blood, create either PRP, PRF or PBF, and then massage it into your skin. This increases the supply of nutrient-rich blood directly to the skin, encouraging new collagen and elastin production. 

Hair restoration 

Hair restoration with PRP, PRF or PBF treatment is perfect for both men and women with thinning hair or mild to moderate pattern baldness.  

By injecting a small sample into your scalp, PRP, PRF or PBF treatment increases the supply of nutrient-rich blood directly to the hair follicle which increases the thickness and proliferation of affected hair shafts.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
