Medical science has advanced a lot in the past decade, in areas like dermatology, radiology, and more. However, the contributions of these advancements towards the cosmetic industry are unmatched. From botox treatments to microneedling, people wanting to address the signs of aging, grow more hair and restore a more youthful look.
Two popular methods in the Australian cosmetic treatment are PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin). These two treatment techniques are not only less invasive but offer amazing results. Perhaps, that’s why they are now so popular.
What is PRP and is it safe?
PRP or Platelet rich plasma is an extract taken from the person’s own blood and injected back into the places of impact, like the scars, hair loss areas of the scalp, acne and pimple marks and fine lines and wrinkles.
Platelets are known to have several growth factors that increase the production of collagen and elastin in the dermal cells. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced and the face gains an amazing glow. But what is more interesting is the healing properties of PRP. The platelet rich plasma can easily act on the damaged skin cells and promote their growth with ease.
Since the extract is taken from the person’s blood and no chemical is added other than the coagulants, PRP is indeed safe. Plus, it doesn’t involve any invasive procedure, thereby reducing the risks further.

PRF — the next generation PRP
While PRP yields outstanding results, experts from Hair and Skin Science have brought forth another concept into light, the PRF or Platelet Rich Fibrin. It is said to be almost similar to that of PRP but with the only difference is the absence of coagulants. Besides, the extract is rich in fibrin, one of the essential compounds present in the plasma for the formation of fibrinogen used in clotting. In fact, PRF is said to be more efficient than PRP in treating the skin conditions, listed above.
With the correct procedure and a little patience, both PRP and PRF will indeed show excellent results in terms of treating scarring, early aging symptoms, and so on. Hair and Skin Science is offering both these treatments with the help of experienced medical practitioners.
