PRFM Face & Hair Consent


INSTRUCTIONS: This is an informed consent document that has been prepared to help inform you about the Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) technique. It is important that you read this information carefully and completely.

INTRODUCTION: The Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) technique uses the latest generation of Smart Blood Concentrates to generate a complex Fibrin Matrix rich in Platelets, Leukocytes and Mesenchymal stem cells. For 10-12 days this results in the constant release of Growth factors and interleukins which accelerate tissue healing and regenerating processes.

PRF is effective in most cases; no guarantees can be made that a specific patient will benefit from this procedure. Additionally, the nature of cosmetic procedure may require a patient to return for numerous visits in order to achieve the desired results or to determine whether PRF may not be completely effective at treating the particular condition. The healing process takes time and the final result won’t be readily visible for many months.

INDICATIONS OF USE: ON or OFF LABEL USE only concerns marketing & promotional material for a product. Physicians are free to use any medical device for any purpose, even a use that the FDA has not approved. PRF technique is used to accelerate tissue healing and skin regeneration processes through Blood Concentrate. This proposed use is “Off-label” that is, not specifically approved by the FDA. It is important to understand that the proposed use is not experimental and if suggested by your provider, it is because it is safe and effective.


  1. DISCOMFORT: Discomfort may be experienced during blood draw where there is a slight pinch to insert the needle for the blood collection as well as during the procedure if PRF is injected into the site. Repeat injections may be necessary.
  2. BRUISING, SWELLING, INFECTION: With any minimally invasive procedure, bruising of the treated area may occur. Additionally, there may be swelling noted. Finally, skin infection is rare, but always a possibility with any injection or incision into the skin.
  3. SCARRING: Scar at entry point is extremely rare but must always be considered a possibility when entering the skin. Delayed wound healing and/or scarring may occur.
  4. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Smokers may have less response to this treatment as toxins in smoke block the response of the Stem Cells. Cell death or Fibrosis may occur. There may be some variation I achieving the results requested as everyone’s body type is different and may have a different response. No guarantees or warrantees with respect to final outcome or its longevity can be offered.

You may take pain medication such as Tylenol.
A numbing cream is applied to the area of treatment.
Approximately 10 cc of whole blood is drawn from your arm.
The tubes of blood are centrifuged to separate the component cells. Platelets, Leukocytes and Mesenchymal stem cells are separated and used for this procedure.
The liquid is then transferred into a syringe and injected using a tiny needle.

ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES MAY BE NECESSARY: In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single procedure and other procedures may be necessary.
