My Blood Can Do What?
By: Alison Karimi, RN, MedSpa Manager at Hiatus Spa + Retreat
Are you looking for a 100% natural option to regenerate your skin? Believe it or not, it’s now possible thanks to your own body! Your blood is really all you need!
What is EZ Gel?
Ez Gel is an all natural, regenerative and bio-stimulating gel that uses your body’s own proteins for skin rejuvenation. EZ GEL is a 100% natural solution that comes from your own blood and offers an extended release of growth factors and biostimulation from Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF). How amazing is our own body? It can be used for patients who desire a boost to their skin and can address concerns including undereye circles and hollows, or an aged and tired appearance. EZ GEL can be used alone or in combination with dermal fillers and neurotoxins.
What can EZ Gel do?
* Treat asymmetry
* Rejuvenate the skin
* Stimulate collagen production
* Reduce signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin)
* Reduce acne scarring
How do you obtain EZ gel?
A blood sample is taken by one of our nurses, spun in a centrifuge, then heated and cooled to form a gel. By mixing the growth factors of liquid PRF and the albumin of plasma, EZ Gel is produced.
What is PRF?
Platelet-rich fibrin, or PRF, is a completely natural injectable that can rejuvenate the appearance of your face. PRF is a fibrin matrix comprised of platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells used to help promote skin rejuvenation, hair growth, and wound healing. These injections use a concentration of your blood, or PRF, and continue to work overtime, therefore promoting the generation of new collagen.
What’s the difference in EZ Gel and PRF?
EZ Gel instantly adds volume like a filler would. PRF is liquid and doesn’t add the same initial volume like the gel does. EZ Gel is great for those who want an instant plump while their body is being triggered by the growth factors in the gel to stimulate tissue regeneration. You will get rejuvenated skin and collagen production from both products, but choosing the best option usually comes down to the extent of your volume loss and goals.
How does it work?
After your blood is drawn, a slow and short centrifuge process takes place to isolate your own regenerative cells. It’s then injected back into your face and the process begins.
I’ve heard of PRP, but what is the difference in PRF?
PRF doesn’t require any additives or anti-coagulants to unlock our bodies healing properties. It’s essentially a more concentrated for of PRP richer in platelets and longer lasting growth factors for maximum stimulation and best results.
This treatment is best done in a series of 3 to achieve the best results. You may also choose to do a combination of EZ Gel and or dermal fillers with PRF to get an even better result. PRF should be considered if looking for a natural way to stimulate collagen, help with hair loss, discoloration under the eyes, and restore lost volume. It’s a great addition to Skinpen microneedling to speed up the healing process and see your desired result even faster!
