For 10 years we have used Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for our Skin Rejuvenation procedures. We have since transitioned to using Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), otherwise known as PRP 2.0, in these procedures as it delivers quicker, more noticeable improvements in skin quality with a longer duration of time.
PRF Skin Rejuvenation is the foundation of FoRM’s Aesthetic Medicine program – PRF achieves what no other cosmetic procedure can…it improves the health of your skin at the cellular level, resulting in a natural glow and more youthful complexion, which is all yours, not synthetic.
PRF Skin Rejuvenation treatments include the PRF Facial & PRF Facelift, which stimulate the regeneration of healthy cells resulting in a more youthful appearance without surgery, fillers and down-time.
PRF Skin Rejuvenation is ideal for individuals looking to rewind the clock, seeking improvements in skin texture, volume and hydration with a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and discoloration.
These treatments pair well with cosmetic laser procedures, such as IPL photorejuvenation, and/or botox injections for those looking for immediate, more dramatic results.
PRF Skin Rejuvenation Procedures:
The PRF Facial combines the regenerative power of PRF with the microneedling, an effective collagen-induction technique. Following the preparation of the PRF in office, the face is micro-needled to create small channels. The PRP is painted over the needled area, penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin where it releases growth factors and cell regeneration. This treatment is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate signs of aging, scarring, hyper-pigmentation and skin sagging or thinning.
The PRF Facelift includes the PRF Facial (described above), with PRF bio-filler, which is injected into targeted areas to address wrinkles, scars, sagging, skin hollowing and volume loss. Commonly treated areas include under-eyes, around the mouth, and cheeks.

How does PRF Skin Rejuvenation work?
PRF naturally stimulates the regeneration of new cells, correct damaged tissue, and reduce inflammation through the release of growth factors throughout the treated area. Growth factors promote the regeneration of healthier, plumper skin with greater collagen content. Results include improved skin tone, texture, and complexion. Performed in combination with micro-needling, collagen and elastin levels within our skin increase which helps achieve a more youthful appearance.
What is the difference between the PRF Facial and PRF Facelift?
The PRF Facial involves micro-needling with PRF being “painted” over the micro-needled area. The puncturing of the skin helps the PRF penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. PRF and microneedling combine to have an additive effect on skin regeneration. This treatment is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate signs of aging, scarring, hyper-pigmentation and skin sagging or thinning.
The PRF Facelift includes the microneedling procedure described above with additional PRF injected into targeted areas such as deeper wrinkles, scars, pronounced sagging and/or skin hollowing. Commonly treated areas include under eyes, naso-labial folds and cheeks. Please consult with your FoRM provider regarding the most appropriate treatment for you.
Which areas are treated with PRF Skin Rejuvenation?
PRF Skin Rejuvenation is typically performed on the face, but can really be performed on any part of the body needing regeneration. Other commonly treated areas include neck, chest, abdomen and hands.
How many treatments are needed to see results from PRF Skin Rejuvenation?
For best results, a series of 3 monthly treatments are recommended, depending on treatment goals. Some patients report immediate improvement in skin appearance, but many patients notice initial improvement 1 month after the first treatment. Each additional treatment provides additive improvement to skin appearance, providing longer-lasting results.
How long do the results last?
Results following PRF procedures for hair & skin can last 6 months – 1 year from the final treatment in a series. To optimize treatment effectiveness, we encourage patients to seek out routine skin care services such as facials and microdermabrasion as well as work with their FoRM Functional Medicine specialist to optimize health. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months.
What is the cost of treatment?
The PRF Facial is $550. The PRF Facelift, which includes additional injections, is $660. Packages of 3 are discounted by 10%, packages of 6 are discounted by 20%.
