PRF with Microneedling
Boost Your Skin Rejuvenation with PRF
Is your skin tone just not as bright, healthy, and firm as it used to be? Are you seeing more fine lines around your face?
Put your powerful growth factors to work with a PRF Microneedling Treatment
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) with Microneedling will stimulate your skin to rebuild and renew by employing the powerful growth factors contained in your own blood. These growth factors are responsible for choreographing the healing process. The procedure involves a blood draw at Rejuvent, which is separated by a patented process to target and extract the growth factors found in our own platelets.
This clear, golden, odorless serum is then applied topically in conjunction with the Rejuvapen (micro-needling). During the PRF facial treatment, the Rejuvapen pushes the liquid deep into the skin so it can start working to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen and elastin production.
- PRF (platelet-rich-fibrin) contains growth factors from within your own platelets.
Growth factors will enhance your skin’s healing response from the microneedling in building collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
- Tightens and firms sagging skin.
- Improves crepey skin.
- Improves hyperpigmentation.
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
- Improves acne scars, pigmentation, uneven tone, and texture.
The PRF with Microneedling Treatment can be done in the face, neck, chest, and any area that you need to treat. Often it is done in the belly to treat stretch marks, and in the arms to treat sagging skin, this versatile treatment can address skin concerns in most areas of the body.

Frequently asked questions related to PRF Treatments at Rejuvent.
PRP involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood and processing it to concentrate the platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that are believed to stimulate tissue regeneration and promote collagen production. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the skin or applied topically after certain aesthetic procedures. PRP is commonly used for facial rejuvenation, hair loss treatment, and scar reduction.
PRF is a more advanced form of platelet therapy compared to PRP. It is derived from the patient’s blood as well, but it undergoes a different processing technique. Instead of using anticoagulants or chemicals, PRF is prepared by spinning the blood sample in a centrifuge without any additives. This results in a fibrin clot that contains platelets, leukocytes (white blood cells), and plasma. The fibrin clot is then used for various aesthetic treatments.
PRP and PRF treatments have been used in sports medicine for years to help speed recovery following surgery. This technology can now successfully help rejuvenate your face, neck, and chest too!
- Composition: PRP mainly consists of platelets, while PRF includes platelets, leukocytes, and plasma. The presence of leukocytes in PRF is believed to have additional benefits, such as increased immune response and tissue regeneration.
- Preparation Technique: PRP requires the addition of anticoagulants and centrifugation to separate the platelets. PRF, on the other hand, is processed without anticoagulants, leading to the formation of a fibrin clot.
- Growth Factor Release: PRF has a slower release of growth factors compared to PRP. The fibrin matrix in PRF acts as a scaffold, gradually releasing growth factors over a longer period, potentially enhancing the treatment’s effects.
- Clinical Applications: PRP and PRF can be used for similar purposes, such as skin rejuvenation, scar reduction, and hair restoration. However, PRF may be preferred in cases where a more prolonged release of growth factors is desired or when there is a need for additional regenerative properties associated with leukocytes.
Growth factors are proteins naturally present in our bodies. These proteins bind to the cells and promote cell regeneration and tissue repair. Growth factors can stimulate your skin to repair the tiny wounds made by the microneedle, this response makes your skin increase collagen production which helps the skin in several ways.
Growth factors are NOT growth hormones. Growth factors are found in your blood’s platelets.
PRF Facial Treatment with Rejuvapen is great for anyone with aging skin, experiencing skin laxity, skin texture irregularities, wrinkles, and/or sun damage. It is a great treatment to boost collagen production. This process over time plumps the skin, softens wrinkles, improves scarring, tightens skin, and promotes fresh, radiant, youthful skin.
The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the patient’s desired results, and the individual treatment plan. We usually recommended a series of three treatments performed 4 to 5 weeks apart for best results.
At Rejuvent we treat the face, neck, chest area, arms, and belly.
A small amount of your blood with be drawn by the Rejuvent nurse, or Phlebotomist. The blood will be inserted in a centrifuge which will spin the blood at a high-speed velocity.
In the spa, the aesthetician will cleanse and dry your skin. She then applies the golden liquid to your skin and uses the Rejuvapen microneedle to push the growth factors into the skin.
Once inside the skin the growth factors in the PRF act as a scaffolding on which your body will grow collagen naturally. This results in a thicker dermis with softer fine lines and wrinkles, less scarring, and improved skin tone.
At Rejuvent, your comfort is important. Our licensed aesthetician Emily Glenn will take all steps to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
There is no downtime. You might experience mild puffiness and redness that can be easily covered with tinted sunscreen or makeup.
You might experience mild puffiness, redness, and some tenderness on the first day that appears much like a sunburn. Some patients notice a sandpaper texture to the skin the day after treatment. By the second or third day, the puffiness, tenderness, and redness should diminish. The sandpaper texture on the skin may persist for up to a week.
In two to three weeks you might notice that your skin is plump, moister, and more radiant. Over time as your collagen production, you might notice softer lines and wrinkles and tighter skin.
