PRF Facial Rejuvenation
If you love the idea of natural beauty, you’ll love platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) skin rejuvenation! Platelet-rich fibrin is superior to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in several important ways. Here at Luxura, we proudly provide platelet-rich fibrin for its superior healing and renewing capabilities.
PRF is a concentrated portion of your very own blood, which we draw and prepare here in our office within a matter of minutes. Properly obtaining PRF from your blood requires a specialized centrifuge which spins your blood slowly, at a precise speed, to render the optimal amount of fibrin from your blood. Fibrin is prized for containing a high volume of white blood cells, which are rich in revitalizing growth factors. Once PRF is injected into your skin, the fibrin creates a fibrin matrix of growth factors, which are released into your target areas at a steady and highly effective rate, resulting in superior rejuvenating and anti-aging benefits.
Best of all, platelet-rich fibrin is totally natural, derived from your very own blood, making it a powerful anti-aging treatment without the risk of synthetic substances or more invasive measures.
At Luxura Modern Aesthetix, we proudly provide PRF Facials and PRF Facelifts. PRF Facials combine the topical application of PRF with microneedling to stimulate healing and revitalizing within your skin. PRF Facelifts inject PRF into targeted areas of your face to restore volume, boost blood flow and much more. We often combine dermal fillers with PRF injections to boost your rejuvenating results.

FAQs: PRF Facial and PRF Facelift in Chicago, IL
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated healing portion of your very own blood. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a more potent, highly concentrated version of PRP, which we obtain in our office using a special centrifuge which spins and isolates your blood more slowly. While the ideal concentration of platelets for a PRP sample is between two to five times the level of platelets typically found within the body, PRF contains approximately 10 times the platelet concentration. In addition to containing a higher concentration of platelets, PRF’s gentler spinning process allows for a spongy fibrin matrix to stay in the mix. This fibrin matrix, packed with white blood cells, stem cells and platelets, allows for a slower release of growth factors than traditional PRP. With PRF, you’ll continue to get the revitalizing benefits of your treatment up to 10 days following your session, as the fibrin matrix works gradually to stimulate your body’s natural healing process, creating new collagen, blood vessels and skin cells long after your treatment.
You will relax while we draw a small portion of your blood in our office and run it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRF, a process that takes about 20 minutes. While you are waiting for your PRF, we will numb your treatment areas by applying a topical anesthetic cream. When you are fully numb, we will apply the PRF to your face while simultaneously microneedling, to enhance your skin’s absorption of PRF and boost the skin-renewal process.
The PRF Facelift prepares your PRF the same as the PRF Facial, but instead of microneedling and topical application, PRF is injected directly into targeted areas of your face, depending on your needs. If so desired, we can combine your PRF injections with dermal fillers to boost your rejuvenating results.
Immediately following your PRF with microneedling treatment, your face will be bright red and feel tight as the result of the PRF drying while sinking into the holes, or treatment channels, created by microneedling. Any redness will fade into pinkness in the next day or two before turning into a bronze, crust-like patina, which gradually sloughs off by the end of the week to reveal a radiant, intensely renewed complexion. Generally speaking, it takes about a week of intense skin renewal, but you’ll be able to go about your usual business, if so desired. So technically, there’s only a day or two of social downtime with PRF Facials with microneedling.
With any injection, there is a risk of swelling, pinpoint bleeding and bruising. Overall, however, PRF Facelifts involve little to no downtime.
Because we use PRF at Luxura, you will enjoy a much higher, longer-lasting level of results!
With PRF Facials, you’ll start to notice improvements within the first week of your treatment, with continued improvements in the following weeks and months as the PRF triggers new collagen and elastin growth. PRF Facelifts are injections, which can reveal immediate results with continued improvements in the following weeks and months as PRF triggers long-lasting rejuvenation.
Because PRF uses your very own blood and our medical staff follows the highest protocols and standards of medical safety, there is little to no risk with PRF facial rejuvenation treatments. PRF is 100% natural, so there’s also little to no risk of an allergic reaction. Best of all, PRF is a healing substance by nature, so it promotes healing and revitalization, virtually eliminating any risk factors for you.
