What Is PRF?
PRF is a type of growth factor, a protein that’s found naturally in your blood. Growth factors intensify your body’s healing process by stimulating the growth of healthy cells. With PRF, Dr. Tehrani and our team harness those natural healing properties to help you recuperate after surgery. We start by taking a small sample of your blood. We then put this sample into a centrifuge and rotate it at a rapid speed. This causes the different layers of blood to separate, which allows us to harvest the fibrin that accelerates healing. During your procedure we introduce PRF into the surgical site. This eventually forms a protective layer that promotes healing and enables you to feel better sooner. As an example, think of the way a scab forms over a cut to help it heal. Like that process, healing through PRF is completely natural, because the only “medicine” is your own blood!
