Platelet Rich Fibrin

Understanding how your body's natural growth factors can help accelerate the healing process.

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a tool used to help improve surgical outcomes.

What is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)?

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is composed of platelets and plasma. PRF is made from a small sample of your own blood that is taken at the time of your procedure. The process concentrates the platelets found in the blood sample. These concentrated platelets contain huge reservoirs of growth and wound healing factors. Growth and wound healing factors are natural components of your body. Clinical data has shown that growth and wound healing factors enhance and accelerate your body's normal healing process.

What are growth factors?

Platelets contain potent growth factors necessary to begin tissue repair and regeneration. Growth factors derived from platelets initiate connective tissue healing, bone regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the healing process.

How long has PRF been used?

PRF has been used clinically for over a decade. Leading clinicians in specialties such as Dental, ENT, Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and Orthopedics.

Is PRF safe?

PRF is derived from a small quantity of your own blood drawn at the time of surgery. Since the PRF is made from your own blood, it is insulated against the risk of disease transmission.
