PGRF (plasma-rich growth factors) treatments are very similar to PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatments in that they both use blood that is drawn directly from each patient to separate platelet-rich plasma to create a safe, autologous treatment that supports cell regeneration without needing to use any chemicals or external products. PRGF can be differentiated from traditional PRP, as it includes plasma proteins, so it is much richer in essential proteins and has coagulative factors, making it more effective than PRP.
PRGF therapy allows patients to use their cells to stimulate and support an effective healing process. Retrieving the patient’s plasma is rich in growth factors to be re-administered into the areas that benefit from additional healing support. These growth factors signal to the surrounding cells of the body to grow and reproduce to repair the affected tissues, improving the biological healing process using only natural ingredients that are free of chemicals. When used to support the healing process following a surgical procedure, PRGF treatments have been shown to stimulate increased healing of the tissues, as well as bone integration, a reduction of post-surgical complications and risks, and decreased inflammation. When used following a surgical procedure that includes implantations, PRGF reduces the risk of implant rejection.
This form of therapy can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including both functional medicine as well as aesthetic medicine as the concentrated plasma that is rich in growth factors provides the treated area with essential proteins to encourage healthy growth and reparation.
One of the most significant benefits of PRGF is that this effective healing support treatment is entirely natural, using blood drawn from each patient that is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma as well as a chemical reaction to increase the growth factors within the plasma. This plasma is then re-introduced into the patient’s body, but since the formulation only consists of plasma drawn from the patient, the treatment is incredibly safe, with very minimal risk of adverse reactions. The treatment also only requires that the patient’s blood be drawn and then re-injected, so the process is minimally invasive. Additionally, PRGF can be injected into any part of the body, making it effective for a wide variety of treatments and safe for all patients.
A benefit of using PRGF treatments over traditional PRP treatments is that PRGF is more effective than traditional PRP, with fewer and lessened side effects as well as reduced swelling.
Most patients would be considered a good candidate to receive PRGF since it is an autologous treatment in that the ingredients are sourced from your own body, so there are very few side effects and contraindications. There are many different medical scenarios in which PRGF may be recommended, both through functional medicine and aesthetic medicine. When used as part of a facial treatment, good candidates will include those who would benefit from a minimally invasive anti-aging treatment, as it is very effective in smoothing out the complexion and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration that gradually develops due to age. It is also an effective option for those who are looking to reduce the appearance of scarring, sun damage, and other imperfections in their complexion.
PRGF treatments can be added to many medical procedures to provide healing and regenerative benefits safely, making them a great option for most patients.
The results provided from the PRGF are sought through the natural healing process, so they will continue to be gradually noticeable as the treated area continues to heal. This means that the timeline of visible results will depend on the rate of healing, which will likely take a few weeks. The benefits provided by PRGF can be realized almost immediately though as the risks for infections, inflammation, and swelling are significantly reduced and the natural healing process has a bit of a jump start.
When used as a facial treatment, the growth factors increase the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for a smooth, youthful complexion that is even in both tone and texture. The results from these treatments will take several weeks to completely develop as the cells undergo regeneration and new cells are produced. While it can take multiple weeks for the results to be realized, the results will be long-lasting and natural.
