PRF Dermal Filler

What are Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, lip and facial fillers, or wrinkle fillers are medical device implants approved by the FDA for use in helping to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, nasal folds, cheeks, chin, lips, and other areas. Often these fillers are naturally absorbed over time requiring the procedure to be repeated over time to maintain the desired effect. Many dermal fillers are mineral or polymer-based, however at SCCOFS, we use PRF or Platelet-rich fibrin for dermal fillers. 

What is PRF or Platelet Rich Fibrin?

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a natural dermal filler solution that is additive-free and chemical free. It is derived from the body’s own resources and is a natural alternative to other dermal fillers. PRF is sourced from your own blood and contains high concentration of fibrin and white blood cells. This leverages your own natural healing properties of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells to help regenerate the skin while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

Why Choose PRF over other approved injectables? 

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a naturally occurring solution that is used to help treat the visible signs of aging. PRF uses your own blood, which is then separated into a biomaterial using a centrifuge. This solution, which has high concentrations of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells, is then injected like fillers to treat aging or deflated skin. PRF may take a little longer to see results than traditional fillers, but the results after treatment series can make your skin feel firmer and fuller with a fast, easy, and natural solution.  

Why see an Oral Surgeon for PRF Dermal Fillers? 

When deciding who to visit for cosmetic procedures, many people narrow their search to only cosmetic surgeons.  Choosing an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon means you can be assured that they have speciality training and extensive knowledge of the facial muscles, facial structure, and teeth to assure the best possible results. Thanks to their surgical background, oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMSs) are uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic procedures involving the functional and aesthetic aspects of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws. Extensive education and training in surgical procedures involving skin, muscle, bone and cartilage finely attune the oral and maxillofacial surgeon to the need for harmony between facial appearance and function.
