Smoother, Brighter And Younger Skin
As a form of regenerative treatment, platelet-rich fibrin therapy provides an all-natural alternative for improving signs of aging, such as deflated cheeks and hair loss. At Xthetics we love PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) because it doesn’t require the use of any additive nor anti-coagulant to unlock our bodies’ natural healing properties. It uses the latest technologies to maximize natural body response without damaging its environment. The results? A concentrate that is richer in platelets and longer-lasting growth factors for maximum stimulation and best results! You don’t have to go under a knife just to achieve your beauty goals. Achieve blemish-free skin that is smoother, more radiant, and more youthful with just a series of PRF treatments.
PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) uses your own natural elements to supercharge regeneration.
Boost the production of collagen and the regeneration of skin tissues.
PRF facial rejuvenation provides high-quality results that are longer lasting.
Platelet-rich fibrin is the second generation of platelet-rich plasma that offers even greater results than its predecessor. A standard PRP treatment features a concentration of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells. A PRF treatment boasts a higher concentration of white blood cells, fibrin, and a small number of stem cells as well.
Since PRF is extracted from your own blood, it is completely natural and fully recognized by your body upon injection. This treatment is commonly injected under the eyes and into the cheeks to reduce the appearance of aged skin. It can also be injected into the scalp to promote hair health and in some cases, regeneration.

Every 3-6 months
Like PRP, PRF is considered a very safe treatment option, as it doesn't involve the use of any foreign substances that could trigger a rejection or allergic response from the body. Many experts have found that PRF can produce significant improvements in the appearance of aging skin, provided that it is used on appropriate candidates.
PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin. PRF is a concentrated form of platelets and white blood cells obtained from a blood draw, and is used as an alternative to hyaluronic acid fillers. PRF is an autologous blood concentrate, 100% natural, free of additives and chemicals, and packed with powerful cells for skin rejuvenation purposes. PRF can be used for dark circles, acne scarring, skin texture, tear troughs, hair restoration, volume loss, and a whole lot more. It is truly “liquid gold.”
A blood sample is collected and placed in a centrifuge to create the PRF product. It is then carefully injected into the skin in the treatment area to achieve your desired results. In terms of using PRF as a follow up after a microneedling treatment, it is then applied topically to the skin allowing the product to penetrate deeper layers of your skin through the micro injuries created by microneedling. This often enhances the overall results of your treatment.
PRF is considered very safe, since it is your own blood, and therefore carries no allergic reaction risk. The skill of your doctor comes into play to ensure the best possible results.
The PRF treatment takes approximately 1 hour. This depends on if the PRF is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled into the skin.
Results from PRF treatments can be seen for many years after treatment. While we cannot stop the aging process, we can slow it down. Results from PRF treatments can be extended with continuous skin treatments and proper at home skincare maintenance. Everyone has different needs, so when you come in for your complimentary consultation we will be able to discuss a personalized treatment plan that will give you optimal results.
Results may vary from one patient to another. Although reports say results begin to be seen taking shape within a few weeks after the PRF treatment. Results will then continue to gradually improve over the coming months, and most Calgary PRF treatment patients report seeing noticeable results around three months after their PRF facial therapy. Final results can continue to develop for up to one year after your treatment.
This plasma is then injected into your skin using an injection device. The injection device is used to penetrate the skin and introduce your own repair cells into the dermis to induce repair. The technique of injecting PRF is virtually painless with the use of the injection device and the whole treatment takes about an hour.
Strategically injected, PRF can be placed anywhere on the face or body, which can then lead to an improvement in texture, tone, discoloration, and the overall health of your skin.
Some mild discomfort may be felt during the injection. The sensation typically felt is a pin prick and mild tingling sensation. This sensation only lasts a few minutes. We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire PRF treatment.
Clients notice tightening and a more even skin tone within a week or two after PRF treatments, however, for best results, it is recommended that a minimum of 3 PRF treatments be performed one month apart. This creates an accumulative effect and results continue to build for up to 6-12 months after every treatment.
If you are in good health and are looking to improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, skin laxity and other common skin concerns caused by aging without the expense and hassle of going under surgery, PRF is perfect for you!
Nope! There is no downtime after your PRF treatment and you can go on ahead with your day-to-day activities! You will be provided with aftercare instructions to maximize results and minimize any side effects like swelling or redness. After a few hours any side effects will subside.
