Platelet rich fibrin
You may have heard of platelet rich plasma (PRP) which is well known for its skin rejuvenating properties. It is commonly used for wound healing in many aspects of medicine. Over the past few years it has been popularised by the ‘Vampire Facial’. At Nouvelle we use the advanced next generation PRP known as Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) in many of our skin and Hair loss treatments. Injectable platelet rich fibrin (i-PRF) is a unique rejuvenation technique that uses the your own blood plasma.
It is saturated with platelets and fibrin which are a source of healing proteins and growth factors. It also contains all important stem cells which are the bodies foundation for regeneration. We are able to create injectable platelet rich fibrin using your own blood plasma, and this is where the magic starts. Once injected the activated concentrated platelets start accelerating healing and kick starting the regeneration process, producing a gradual, cumulative and long lasting effect. This gives it potent collagen and elastin stimulating properties, resulting in tightened, lifted and more youthful skin.
The most amazing thing about PRF is that it is 100% natural with no additives, because we make it from your own blood. A small sample of blood is collected from your arm to prepare your PRF serum. The blood is then slowly spun in a centrifuge which isolates the white blood cells and platelets to create the rich PRF serum. The doctor can then use the serum either topically to the skin or injected into the problem areas.
100% Natural, Organically You
PRF is saturated with a much greater amount of growth factors than standard PRP. These growth factors are responsible for wound healing and skin rejuvenation than PRP. Because PRF forms a fibrin matrix when used in the skin, it is able to release active growth factors into the skin for much longer than conventional PRP (2 weeks compared with 24-48 hours).

We combine the potent effects of our medical grade SkinPen Micro-needling with Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) in our Nouvellift Gold Facial treatment. Micro-needling with PRF is the gold standard in natural skin rejuvenation and stimulates collagen and elastin production whilst renewing the skin on several levels.
You will notice an immediate and lasting burst of radiance which will continue for weeks as collagen is produced. The maximum effects are usually seen after 2 months. We recommend a course of 3 monthly treatments to obtain the maximal effects, but this will vary according to the individual.
