PRF Therapy – Baton Rouge, LA

PRF for Tear Trough

Lack of sleep, genetics, or lifestyle factors may contribute to the appearance of unattractive tear troughs below the eyes. These may in turn make you look tired and haggard even when you are excited and full of energy. Kristin Green, PA-C and McKenzie Rush, PA-C use advanced non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) to address this issue and rejuvenate the skin in this area.

How Does Platelet Rich Fibrin Work?

Platelet Rich Fibrin is an all-natural solution that is formulated from the patient’s blood. This is a very effective treatment for addressing tear troughs and other aesthetic issues in difficult areas of the face. Once injected into the target areas, the treatment can instantly alleviate eye pigmentation as well as enhance skin texture, thickness, and firmness. 2-3 treatments spaced between 4 and 6 weeks apart are required to attain the best outcome. Results can last from 6 months up to 3 years. Since PRF is a highly individualized treatment, patients do not have to worry about complications such as infections or allergies.

Who is a candidate for PRF Therapy

PRF Therapy may be an ideal treatment for you if you are experiencing hair loss and other typical aesthetic issues. Dr. Erick Sanchez has effectively used this treatment to address a broad range of issues affecting both men and women. Individuals with some health conditions such as Hepatitis C, blood cancer, HIV or AIDs, cardiovascular disease, and skin cancer may not be good candidates for this cosmetic treatment.

What are the benefits of PRF Therapy?

For the right candidates, PRF treatments in Baton Rouge offer unique benefits, including the following:

  • Naturally enhanced collagen production.
  • Reduced wrinkling and facial folds
  • Lighter, plumper skin in the under-eye areas
  • Enhanced hair growth and vitality
  • Significant improvement in overall facial appearance
  • Lower risk of adverse side effects
  • Faster healing time

How is PRF Therapy administered?

Before your Platelet Rich Fibrin treatment, your doctor will extract a vial of your blood. This sample is then centrifuged in order to separate PRF and other blood components. Once this process is completed, a syringe is used to harvest the PRF components at the top of the vial. These are then combined with hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers and injected into the appropriate treatment areas.

Where is PRF injected?

PRF is injected into the skin via small needle holes. The specific pattern of the injections will vary based on the goals of your treatment. The treatment is extensively used in dermatology for hairline rehabilitation and volume restoration. It is also used in gynecology, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic medicine, urology, cardiac surgery, and ophthalmology.

How long do results last?

PRF therapy is typically administered in a series of injections that are spaced about 6 – 8 weeks apart. Initially, volume enhancement is evident in about 1 – 3 weeks. However, it may take up to 6 months (sometimes even a year) before the patient can notice long-term benefits such as enhanced collagen production and skin tightening. Improvements in scarring are usually long-lasting. It is important to note though that advanced wrinkling and deep lines are usually irreversible.

How much does PRF cost in Baton Rouge?

The cost of your PRF therapy in Baton Rouge could vary from a few hundred dollars up to $2,000 and sometimes even more depending on the specifics of your treatment. Dr. Sanchez’s plastic surgery office should be able to provide a more accurate cost estimate after learning more about your needs and goals from this treatment.
