Frequently Asked Questions

What is PRF or Platelet-Rich Fibrin?

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is the second generation of platelet concentrates derived from platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRF contains autologous growth factors that help promote the body’s natural healing process.

Compared to traditional dermal fillers, PRF is more effective and delivers longer-lasting results.

What’s the difference between PRP and PRF?

PRF is much more potent than PRP because it can deliver more growth factors, resulting in better and long-lasting results.

Also, PRF injections are more effective at treating deeper wrinkles, hollows, and more advanced signs of aging.

What is Contour BioGel?

At Contour Clinique, we affectionately refer to our PRF treatments as Contour BioGel or EZ-gel. This natural filler treatment uses PRF technology to add volume under the eyes and other areas of the face. What sets Contour BioGel apart is that it combines PRF with albumin to create a unique, gel-like substance. This special formula ensures gradual release for long-lasting and natural results that we love!

The Contour BioGel treatment is typically recommended for clients who want to reduce their under-eye dark circles, under-eye volume loss, and fine lines/wrinkles.

Contour BioGel stimulates collagen and tissue regeneration to help you achieve a natural, rejuvenated appearance. It delivers long-term benefits, helping your skin become smoother, thicker, and more radiant.

What does a Contour BioGel session look like?

A Contour BioGel treatment begins with a detailed consultation where our provider aim to understand your goals and create a customized treatment plan. Our providers explain the procedure and describe the precautions you need to take.

On the day of your appointment, your provider begins by applying a local anesthetic cream to the treatment area to minimize discomfort.

Next, they start drawing your blood into tubes while waiting for the anesthetic to take effect. The amount of blood drawn differs based on the surface area being covered.

Once the blood has been drawn, the tubes are placed in a centrifuge device. This separates the blood cells from the nutrient-rich cells. After the centrifuge does its job, your provider removes the top layer of concentrate from the tube. This layer is the PRF and contains your platelets and white blood cells. The derived platelet concentrate is then combined with albumin.

Next, your provider will clean the targeted area with an antiseptic before injecting the PRF gel into the skin.

In most cases that entail a combination of procedures, PRF injections are always conducted after any other procedures. It can be done on the same day or another day depending on which treatments you undergo.

How long does a Contour BioGel session take?

An EZ-gel PRF treatment takes between 30 and 60 minutes. The per session time depends on the number of areas treated.

What areas can be treated?

The PRF EZ-gel filler can be used on any part of the face, the décolletage, and scalp. However, it is most commonly performed on the under-eye area.

Who is an ideal candidate for Contour BioGel?

Our PRF treatments are suited for individuals who want more natural-looking results. It is also recommended for those who have allergic reactions to synthetic fillers.

PRF offers a holistic approach that addresses concerns like crepey skin, uneven skin texture, and loss of volume without relying on invasive procedures.
Of course, your unique needs and health history must also be considered to determine if a PRF treatment is right for you.

Is Contour BioGel safe?

Yes, our PRF EZ-gel filler treatments are relatively safe since they’re made using your own blood. This reduces the risk of allergies and adverse side effects.

Some patients may see minor bruising, soreness, redness, tenderness, or swelling after treatment but they usually subside after a few days.

Do the PRF Injections hurt?

PRF injections are minimally invasive so they are not painful. However, patients may experience some discomfort when the needle pierces the skin.

Patients who are worried about the pain can ask their provider to use numbing agents to manage pain during the treatment or prescribe over-the-counter pain medications to lessen discomfort after the treatment.

What are the precautions and aftercare steps?

Below is everything you need to do before and after your PRF undereye injections to ensure the best results and recovery:

  • Increase water intake
  • Avoid consuming caffeine and alcohol for 3 days.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 2 days.
  • Protect the treated skin from heat exposure and direct sunlight for a minimum of 48 hours.
  • Avoid smoking for 3 days.
  • Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications for 3 days.
  • Avoid using blood-thinning agents such as vitamins A and E, cod liver oil, garlic, flax, ginkgo, and essential fatty acids for at least 1 week.
  • In case of swelling, apply ice or cold compress on the treatment area.
How much downtime is required?

PRF undereyes or facial treatment has minimal downtime compared to other procedures. Clients can schedule their appointments without worrying about scheduling time off from work and other commitments.

When can I see the results?

A PRF EZ-gel filler takes effect immediately, however, you can only notice the difference after 2 to 3 weeks. Meanwhile, peak results become visible after 4 to 6 weeks.

Clients will first notice improvements in their skin’s elasticity and tone. They will also experience a healthy change in their skin’s volume, texture, and overall quality.

Of course, the exact timeframe when results become noticeable will differ slightly based on the result you’re looking for and the treatment plan prescribed to you. In addition, the healing properties of every individual’s blood will be different and can hence take more or less time.
