iPRF (Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin)
iPRF (Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin) treatment is similar to PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), which separates the plasma from the blood before re-injecting it into targeted areas. With iPRF, however, a slower-speed machine, called the iPRF Smart Cell Centrifuge, separates out the plasma. This guarantees a higher quantity of the following key substances:
Leukocytes – these white blood cells aid wound healing and can refine the appearance of scarring.
Platelets – these help with clotting and release growth factors.
Growth factors – these help with cell growth, tissue repair and inflammation. The treatment releases 7 of these.
Fibrin mesh – this protein traps these key substances.
iPRF (Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin) Anti Ageing Treatment in Reading
This expert anti ageing facial treatment involves taking a blood sample, separating out the plasma and then placing the essential cells back into the body to start a natural regeneration process. I-PRF doesn’t use anti-coagulants, as these can prevent the platelets from releasing growth factors, so it’s considered a superior alternative to PRP.
The plasma can be introduced to the skin using microneedling, a Meso needle injector or free hand injection.
This cutting-edge regenerative anti ageing treatment offers a natural way to help:
- Restore lost facial volume
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles
- Treat pigmentation problems
- Balance the skin’s texture
- Target hair loss
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if iPRF is right for me?
As with any of our treatments, a consultation at our skin clinic in Reading is always the first step – so we can be sure we’re offering you the best treatment for your concerns, and can help you achieve the best possible results.
However, due to the unique approach of the treatment, it’s ideal for those looking to target ageing concerns, specific skin problems and also hair loss.
How long does the process take?
It may sound complicated, but iPRF is a relatively straightforward process – and the separation stage can take just 15 minutes.
When it comes to your treatment, we’ll be able to give you an idea of how long we expect your appointment to last during your consultation, as it depends on what you’re looking to treat, and you may need a course of treatments.
Are there any side-effects?
iPRF is considered a safe, natural procedure as it’s using your own blood – just optimising it. However, as it involves injections, there is a risk of pain and tenderness after treatment.
When will I see results?
It can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to see results – it depends on what you’re targeting. Hair loss, for example, takes longer to treat as the hair needs to grow back.
