EZ Gel/ PRF
What is PRF & EZ Gel?
Your blood contains four ingredients: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The platelets in your blood are responsible for clotting, Once bleeding is controlled, your platelets release growth factors and cytokines to initiate the healing cascade, which includes recruiting and using white blood cells, stem cells and growth factors.
With PRF therapy, we draw a sample of your own blood. Then, using a special centrifuge and cooling, we separate out the platelet rich fibrin to create a biocompatible concentrate. Fibrin is what platelets bind to as they circulate through your blood. When platelets bind to fibrin they release growth factors which help to start the healing process by creating new collagen, blood vessels, and skin cells.
Unlike PRP, with PRF you get a slower more sustained delivery of stem cells, growth factors and cytokines that will remain in your tissues for several weeks after your injection, optimizing the effects of the treatment.
PRP and PRF are widely used in many areas of medicine. There are now multiple studies showing their use and efficacy in aesthetic medicine for both rejuvenating the skin and treat some forms of hair loss.
Not only do we offer liquid PRF, but we also have PRF EZ GEL injections. This variation of the PRF allows us to treat volume loss in areas where hyaluronic acid or biostimulatory fillers may not be appropriate. The treatment utilizes a combination of the patient’s own albumin (a blood protein) that is heated and then cooled to form a “gel” which is then blended with the patient’s PRF. This can be used as an injectable “bio gel” in areas in need of volume or skin rejuvenation. EZ Gel is a great alternative for those who may not be able to be treated with HA fillers or are looking for a more natural option. It is 100% autologous, biostimulating and volumizing. While we have always offered PRP treatments at rēVive, PRF and PRF EZ Gel are newer services for us. They are used to address a wide range of issues including:
