PRF Injection Training

Are you interested in joining the exciting field of medical aesthetics? Look no further, because National Laser Institute trains top class medical aestheticians across the country through its competitive courses that are taught by the best in the business. One such advanced training course is PRF injection training for skin rejuvenation.

The world of medical aesthetics has many amazing opportunities opening everyday. Technological advances keep the industry fresh and exciting. One such exciting treatment is PRP/PRF, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin/Platelet-Rich-Plasma. If you want to perform these treatments, you must be a physician, nurse, or aesthetic injector. The medical aesthetic industry has many opportunities for people who are interested in the business and desire to become an aesthetic injector. At the National Injection Institute, you will be taught the tools and techniques you will need to know to perform PRP/PRF treatments.

Who Can Become an Aesthetic Injector?

You can become an aesthetic injector if you are a nurse, physician, or Registered Nurse. The medical aesthetics industry has continuous room for growth as technology is updated and new treatments are introduced.

What are PRF Injections?

Platelet-Rich-Fibrin injections are a treatment where the physician or aesthetic nurse will draw blood and place it into a centrifuge. This process separates the Platelet-Rich-Plasma, so the aesthetic nurse can apply it to the patient’s skin for treatment.

Where does Platelet-Rich-Fibrin Come From?

In France of 2001, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin, PRF, was developed by Choukroun and a team of medical professionals. With this in mind, PRF was developed by removing red blood cells from a serum. When the red blood cells are removed  from the serum, you are left with a concentrated serum of growth factors. As well as that, the serum contains white blood cells, stem cells, and cytokines. This combination contains the necessary components that are useful in promoting healthy growth and wound repair.

How Does PRF Work to Heal Wounds?

The process of healing wounds through Platelet-Rich-Fibrin works well because the platelets within PRF form a protective layer over the site. The platelets create a “mesh” crosshatch pattern that allows new tissue to grow. As the wound heals, the “mesh” absorbs into the surrounding tissue. As well as that, the protective layer also protects the wound site from infection. Another benefit of PRF is that it promotes fast wound healing. In addition, to prevent infection, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin contains white blood cells.

What are The Components of Platelet-Rich-Fibrin Injections?

  • Platelet-Rich-Fibrin contains white blood cells that prevent infection at the site of healing.
  • In addition, PRF contains proteins that act as a communicator between cells, called cytokines. These cytokines also stimulate actions within the cell.
  • As well as that, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin contains growth factors. These growth factors promote cell and blood vessel regeneration.
  • In addition, PRF contains structural glycoproteins. These glycoproteins are water-soluble proteins attached to sugars and/or carbohydrates.

Platelet-Rich-Fibrin Preparation

  1. First, a doctor or aesthetic nurse will draw blood from the client and place it into two sterile tubes called vacutainers. These vacutainers do not have any clotting elements within them.
  2. Second, the two vacutainers are placed within a centrifugal machine. The centrifugal machine will spin the blood, which separates it into different components.
  3. Third, after the centrifugal machine stopped spinning, the doctor or aesthetic nurse will remove the vacutainers from the centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the blood into layers. The top layer in the vacutainer is acellular plasma, which looks straw yellow. The second layer of the vacutainer is Platelet-Rich-Fibrin. As well as that, the second layer has a concentrated layer of platelets contained within the fibrin connective grids.
  4. Once the vacutainers are spun in the centrifuge and separated into layers, the aesthetic nurse can begin the treatment. Important to note, the aesthetic nurse will then place the PRF at the treatment site. As well as that, the PRF injections have to be used immediately because the vacutainers do not contain anti-clotting factors. Over time, the Platelet-Rich-Fibrin will begin to clot and become unusable.

Platelet-Rich-Fibrin is a type of Platelet-Rich-Plasma. With this in mind, PRP only releases growth factors to rejuvenate the skin for a few hours. In contrast, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin releases those same growth factors for up to one week. Important to note, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin promotes healing and wound repair for a longer period of time.

Platelet-Rich-Fibrin is used to rejuvenate the skin. For example, Platelet-Rich-Fibrin is used to minimize acne scars and other skin concerns.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma is used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As well as that, Platelet-Rich-Plasma is used to improve skin tone. In addition, Platelet-Rich-Plasma is used under the eyes to add volume, which tightens the skin.
