PRF 'Natural' Injections
What Are PRF Injections?
In simple terms, PRF injections use your own blood to help rejuvenate your skin, especially in the under-eye area. We’ll get into more detail later, but PRF bears some similarities to the popular PRP treatments athletes sometimes undergo for injuries. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) injections are essentially a form of undereye fillers. They’re considered the next generation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, which are usually used to aid sports injuries. PRF is an autologous blood concentration that uses your blood to help rejuvenate your skin.
How is it Done?
In a PRF procedure, blood is drawn from the patient and centrifuged at slower speeds than in a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) procedure. The absence of an anticoagulant in the tube allows the formation of a spongy, gel-like product rich in platelets, stem cells, growth factors, and fibrin that can be injected into the skin to address signs of aging, hair loss, or skin healing.
What are the benefits?
- Treatment is 100 percent natural
- Can be applied anywhere on the body and face
- Improves your skin’s texture, tone, and discoloration
- Restores volume

The main benefit of PRF is that it employs your body’s own cells in a way to promote the health of your skin. As the product originates from the patient, it is very safe.
