Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Exosomes are two cutting-edge treatments in regenerative medicine. These natural substances derived from your own tissues, or plants, hold exciting potential for healing injuries, reducing inflammation, and slowing aging.

What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin? PRF is obtained through a simple blood draw. The blood is spun to isolate a concentrated layer of platelets and fibrin, a protein involved in clotting. This autologous substance is loaded with growth factors and cytokines that facilitate healing when applied topically or injected into areas of injury or damage.

Benefits of PRF include:

  • Accelerating soft tissue and bone healing
  • Reducing pain and inflammation
  • Promoting collagen production and tissue regeneration
  • Improving wound closure with no stitches required

Exosomes are plant-based stem cells that are messenger cells that allow our tissue to heal. Exosomes derived from stem cells and have potent anti-inflammatory and reparative properties. They aid in growth factor production, which is the key to anti-aging, by stimulating our ability to create new collagen and elastin. They are also responsible for cell-to-cell communication.

Exosomes can be offered with many treatments. Depending on the treatment, exosomes can be applied topically or injected. When incorporated into treatment, the skin becomes ten times more hydrated, which makes the skin more accepting of treatment. Exosomes also speed up the healing process and help to reduce inflammation, swelling, and redness. Exosome injections can also help regenerating cartilage and healing injuries.

Both PRF therapy and exosomes provide effective anti-aging treatments and both can be used to treat hair loss. However, there are some differences between the two. PRF requires a blood draw, while exosome products can be applied topically easily and without discomfort. Exosome treatments also typically improve skin appearance and health within just one or two applications, while PRF applications can require 2 to 4 treatments to achieve results.

Another area where the PRF and exosomes differ is exosomes have anti-inflammatory properties while PRF can’t provide this benefit.

Early research shows both treatments have excellent potential with few safety risks.

Platelet-rich fibrin and exosomes tap into your body’s capacity for healing and regeneration. During your initial visit, Dr. MacFarlane can help determine if PRF, exosome therapy, or other cutting-edge treatments could help resolve your esthetic concerns without medications or surgery. Restore wellness and address aging by using your body’s regenerative tools.
