Microneedling with PRF of Face and Neck
MICRONEEDLING WITH i-PRF
Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a prime treatment at Boca Jaw Surgery that uses an advancedmicroneedling, tool. We have partnered with Dr. Pen™, a pioneer of microneedling, on several research projects to advance the field further.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses 12 sterilized microneedles to micropuncture the skin, resulting in increased collagen production. Microneedling should not be a painful process, but it may cause some discomfort when not done properly.
À Boca Jaw Surgery, we only use the leading microneedling device to give our patients better comfort during treatment.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRF TREATMENT
Microneedling with PRF is a simple procedure in which we extract a sample of your blood to process your i-PRF, which we then apply to your facial skin. Next, we useDr. Pen™ to puncture your skin using a vibrating stamp-like motion, allowing the PRF to penetrate deeper into your skin.
Microneedling and PRF are highly effective treatments individually, but combining them creates a powerful solution to a variety of skin issues.
Microneedling with PRF can treat the following skin problems:

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT
AFTER A i-PRF MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE?
After your i-PRF Microneedling treatment, you will immediately experience skin tightness. You may also experience skin redness similar to a mild sunburn for 1-2 jours. Nevertheless, the i-PRF will drastically enhance your body’s natural regenerative proteins and growth factors, so expect improvement within the next 3 jours. Your recovery time will depend on your skin color and condition, but you may fully heal within 24 hours post-therapy, especially if you follow an appropriate post-treatment skin care routine.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRF AND PRP TREATMENT?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the first-generation platelet concentrate. It is known as the “vampire facial” as it uses the patient’s own blood to treat the skin. It involves placing the blood sample in a centrifuge and spinning it at high speed. However, this procedure requires anti-clotting additives that can compromise the PRP’s potential benefits.
Meanwhile, Injectable Platelet-Rich Fibrin (i-PRF) or “true blood therapy” has become a popular alternative for PRP. It is considered an advanced version of PRP with far more superior effects; studies show that PRF is three times more effective than PRP even without chemical additives. Since no additives are used, it forms a “super” blood clot with significantly higher concentrations of regenerative cells and growth factors that can stimulate healing. This results in a facial esthetics method that reduces the signs of aging, lessens scarring, and treats hair loss.
