I-PRF

iPRF is a unique rejuvenation method that utilises the patient’s own platelets, fibrin, and stem cells to resolve wounds and regenerate the skin. The cells act as conductors that facilitate the body’s own healing and regeneration processes.

When injected, this product accelerates healing and regeneration. Due to this process, the body’s natural regenerative abilities are concentrated and focused on the problem area.

With IPRF, cells are stimulated to function and reproduce, thus having a gentle, gradual but long-term and cumulative effect. In conjunction with other skin treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers, wrinkle-reducing treatments, or i-PRF treatment, the results are even more impressive. The clinic-based treatment produces virtually no downtime, and it can be used to treat melasma and acne scars, in addition to skin rejuvenation and hair loss.

Hair loss is among the new uses of i-PRF. As part of a multi-step procedure of the scalp involving local anaesthesia, it is used to reverse hair loss in men and women. When used for Androgenetic Alopecia (pattern hair loss), it seems to reset the hair follicles and reduce DHT (dihydrotestosterone) production. The popularity of PRP is also increasing as a treatment mode for Alopecia Areata.

PRICES (PER TREATMENT)

Rejuvenation may be achieved by a single treatment.
For treatment of significant skin or hair problems, a course of 3 treatments is recommended

PRP treatments £400 (face or scalp)
i-PRF treatments £400 *

*Part of a clinical protocol

Based on a strong evidence base, and thanks to Dr Joseph Choukroun; the inventor of iPRF technology, we are supporting the development of this technology to further assist our patients.

Your questions about I-PRF answered

IS THIS THE SAME AS PRP? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPRF & PRP?

The two treatments PRP (platelet rich plasma) and PRF (platelet rich fibrin), also involve the centrifugal extraction of platelet based growth factors. The difference between PRP and PRF is that no anticoagulants are added during the PRF spin.

The ability to avoid clotting occurs physiologically through negative charge, which mimics the condition that naturally occurs inside the blood vessels of our bodies that prevent fibrin from clotting. Injectable platelet rich fibrin can therefore be obtained. Thus, in addition to filling voids and wrinkles, PRF can act as a powerful regenerative matrix that releases platelet-derived growth factors in a physiologically controlled slow manner to enhance tissue regeneration compared to PRP.

Further, these two products do not enrich platelets in the same way. There are very few circulating blood stem cells in PRP, and the concentration of platelets is several times higher than in blood. The PRF, on the other hand, contains all the platelets while maintaining fibrin, a highly potent growth factor and regenerative cellular source.

WHY IS FIBRIN IMPORTANT?

As explained by Dr. Choukroun, fibrin acts as a matrix to capture platelets and control growth factors on a regular basis over a period of more than one week. A prolonged-release rate of growth factors into the target tissue is essential for tissues to respond well following the treatment. 

AESTHETIC REGENERATIVE USE OF PRF

The first response to injury in all human tissue is the release of growth factors via fibrin scaffolds. As a result, PRF can be used for various purposes other than skin healing and regeneration. Research examining the essential functions of these regenerative products has demonstrated increased healing, new blood vessels, and collagen production by fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen). 

Peer-reviewed systematic reviews have documented a wide range of clinical applications. Our faculty will discuss with you how PRF could help address the regenerative needs about skin rejuvenation, tissue regeneration, and other aesthetic concerns.

IPRF HAIR GROWTH TREATMENT

Hair loss or thinning patients have an all-natural non-surgical option for treating their condition. Stem cells and other cells within the microenvironment of the hair follicle can be stimulated by iPRF to increase hair growth. Platelet cell regeneration makes new hair grow, and existing hair is thickened as a result of these special Platelet cells.
