What is PRP/PRF Therapy?

Las Vegas oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint is proud to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) therapy at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery to help refresh your facial appearance. PRP/PRF therapy is one of the most popular and innovative cosmetic procedures in the industry because of its natural origin and thrilling results. It uses your own plasma to help stimulate your skin's natural healing process, decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PRP/PRF therapy is also frequently combined with microneedling for a restorative facial. If you're interested in PRP/PRF  therapy, call Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV to schedule a consultation. Dr. Myint will be happy to discuss all the benefits of PRP/PRF and how it can help to boost the health of your skin.

Candidates for prp/prf

People who want to improve the tone and texture of their complexion are typically the best candidates for PRP/PRF therapy. Since it promotes collagen production naturally, it is also often a great treatment option for refreshing dull-colored skin. Let Dr. Myint know if you have any skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia to ensure that it's safe for you to receive PRP/PRF therapy.

Our Platelet-Rich Plasma Technique

Once you're seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be taken from your arm and placed in a centrifuge. Most of the time, we draw around four tablespoons, or one vial's worth, of blood. After about 15 minutes, the different components of the blood will separate and be ready for injection. We'll load your condensed plasma or fibrin into a syringe and inject it into the treatment areas. Once your treatment is complete, you'll be free to go home and resume your usual day.

after your treatment

The extracted plasma or fibrin helps to promote the natural production of elastin and collagen in order to reveal tauter, more youthful-looking skin. Since PRP/PRF uses your own blood, there is no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. You can expect your face to be a little red following the procedure, as traces of red blood cells can make it into the injection. You can apply a cold pack to the injection sites to help reduce discomfort or minor swelling. Dr. Myint recommends you receive treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.

PRP/PRF FAQ

How much does PRP/PRF therapy cost?

Your cost for PRP/PRF therapy will be dependent on your skin condition, aesthetic goals, the number of treatments necessary, and if it's performed with another procedure. Dr. Myint will come up with a cost estimate during your initial consultation at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery and discuss payment methods we accept.

How long do results from PRP/PRF therapy last?

Improvements from PRP/PRF therapy can last for up to eight weeks. The longevity of the results will vary with each person. The benefit of PRP/PRF therapy is that it doesn't require incisions or a long recovery period, plus it is easier to afford. Dr. Myint often recommends his patients get treatments every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results.

What are the risks and complications of PRP/PRF therapy?

Potential risks for PRP/PRF therapy on its own are very mild and include prolonged bruising and swelling. If combined with microneedling, potential risks include mild scarring, pigment changes, and delayed healing. That’s why it’s important to have cosmetic treatments performed by an experienced provider like Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery.

Will PRP/PRF help replenish volume?

A treatment of PRP/PRF therapy cannot restore volume in areas like your cheeks and lips. Although PRP/PRF injections offer great results since they rejuvenate the appearance of the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, it is not meant to boost volume. If you would like to contour areas of the face that have lost volume, you may be a better candidate for dermal fillers.

Is PRP/PRF therapy painful?

Getting PRP/PRF injections feels similar to a BOTOX® or dermal filler injection with the extra step of the plasma extraction. Typically, patients will feel a little pinch or pressure when the needle pierces the skin. If you are worried about pain or discomfort, ask about including numbing cream before the injection is performed.
