Las Vegas, NV | Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matix - Myint Minute | Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery
Let's Get Started
Dr. Myint: Hey, everyone. Welcome to today's Myint Minute. I want to talk to you today about something that is revolutionizing the skin. It's taking your own blood, spinning it down, and using it to help grow the collagen. It's called PRF. That's platelet-rich fibrin. The reason why is it's the fibrin matrix that's the scaffolding that helps grow the collagen. We spin your blood down, take your growth factors from the top in this machine, and then we put it back into your skin.
Dr. Myint: Here we are centrifuging your blood, spinning it down. Once it's spun down, you could see the top layer is where the growth factors are.
Dr. Myint: I also love this modality in surgery. I use it in my blepharoplasty, my brow lifts, facelifts, neck lifts, because I believe that the growth factors in your natural blood allow you to heal much faster during the recovery process. Thank you for joining Myint Minute. Until next time, cheers.
