PRF facial injections in Brentwood are the most recent development in collagen production. Facial rejuvenation with PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) makes use of the healing qualities of the platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells found in your blood. This results in natural regeneration of skin cells and increased production of collagen protein.
PRF facial injections reverse signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging. It’s a variant of the popular PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial treatment, also known as the “vampire facial.” The vampire facial uses the patient’s own blood cells to improve the texture of the skin and stimulate collagen production.
How Do PRF Facial Injections Work?
Platelet-rich-fibrin skin rejuvenation is an autologous treatment, meaning that it uses components from the patient’s own body to achieve the desired results. PRF is taken from a blood sample and injected into the affected areas.
Our PRF facial injections stimulate your body’s natural collagen synthesis to speed up cell turnover and treat a wide variety of skin issues, leaving you with skin that is radiant, firm, and youthful. Because the PRF is wholly natural and derived from your body, the treatment avoids the risk of allergic reaction and rejection.
Who Are Good Candidates for PRF Facial Injections?
PRF facial injections are an option for patients who seek to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, under-eye hollows, and sagging skin. This treatment is ideal if you want younger-looking skin without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
What Happens During the Consultation?
A private consultation with one of our skincare professionals is the first step in the rejuvenation process. They will look over your medical history, inspect your skin, and ask you about your aesthetic goals.
If they think you would benefit from this treatment, they will talk to you about each step of the process and come up with a treatment plan just for you. If you are not a good fit for PRF facial injections, they will propose other treatments that they believe will better meet your needs.
What to Expect During the Procedure
A conventional needle will be used to extract a small sample of blood from one of your arms by the healthcare provider. The procedure is comparable to a standard blood draw. The sample will be placed inside of a centrifuge, the required settings will be entered, and the machine will then be started.
The PRF will be separated out by the centrifuge and will rise to the top of the vial as a result. The total time needed for the process should be close to 5 minutes.
As soon as the PRF injection is ready, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment regions by the practitioner so that the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. They will then inject the PRF into the injection sites. Your aesthetic goals will be taken into account when determining the appropriate number of injections.
What to Expect After PRF Facial Injections
You may experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and itching at the treatment sites for the first couple of days after receiving PRF facial injections. There is no downtime or recovery time needed, so you can return to your regular activities and your job as soon as the treatment session is complete. Refrain from activities that require a lot of physical exertion for at least one day.
The results of PRF facial injections are seen gradually over the course of several weeks as your body generates collagen and elastin fibers. The majority of patients start to notice the improvements within a few weeks, although the outcomes continue to improve for several months after they initially become noticeable.
For best results, you may need multiple treatments spread out over a few months. Your provider will figure out the best treatment plan and how often you will need to come in for injections.

It’s been almost 4 months and my skin has never looked so good. It truly brings me joy to show friends and family my before and after pictures. They are speechless. Thank you Kim and thank you ZO Skin. I am a customer for life!
For the first time in the last 7 years I’ve been getting Botox has someone taken the time to explain to me why drooping happens and how to prevent it. She took her time and made sure everything was thoroughly explained. She clearly knows her stuff!
