You may have heard of fillers before, but did you know that using your own blood can enhance the results of fillers? At Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, we offer a type of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy called Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), which is used in addition to fillers, microneedling treatments and hair growth procedures to enhance results. Rejuva Medical Aesthetics is one of the first clinics in the United States to offer PRF to patients because we believe the treatment will soon replace traditional PRP as the next generation of blood concentrate and platelet therapy.
In fact, our own Dr. Karimi demonstrated the PRF procedure in front of hundreds of doctors this summer at the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery show in Las Vegas.

What Exactly Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a treatment for stretch marks and aging lines as well as fine lines and wrinkles located on the face, neck and hands by using your body’s own platelets to form new collagen and blood supply. PRP is often used in conjunction with many other treatments as well, including microneedling and hair growth.
How Does PRF Differ From Traditional PRP?
PRF is a second-generation version of PRP therapy. PRF has a higher concentration of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells. In addition, PRF has a small percentage of stem cells, which cannot be found in traditional PRP therapy.
PRF is 100% natural with zero additives. The treatment works by forming a gel after 15 minutes to hold a nice form, which makes PRF especially effective when used in conjunction with a number of fillers, including:
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®
- JUVEDERM® ULTRA and ULTRA PLUS
- Restylane® Silk
- Restylane® Lyft
- Restylane® Defyne™
- Restylane® Refyne™
Each of these fillers offers a unique benefit, depending on your preference and aesthetic goals. We recommend discussing facial filler and PRF treatments options with our doctors to create a customized plan for you.
