Our skin tells our story, and no one wants this story to look tired and worn out. As we age, our skin can appear dull and unevenly toned, with wrinkles and lines emerging. Many of these changes result from a loss of fat, tissue, and declining growth factors. For some, genetics play a role in this appearance, and the slow process of droopy, fatigued, creased skin can’t be avoided.
In most cases, people submit to these cosmetic frustrations as they believe plastic surgery is the only concrete answer for needed change. We are thrilled to offer a non-surgical solution using Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) injections, as a form of modern and sophisticated rejuvenation to your skin, working wonders on your face and under-eye area.
What ArePRF Injections
A PRF injection is the latest in advanced skin and tissue rejuvenation. PRF injections work to smooth away the signs of aging, fine lines, and wrinkles with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF).
This platelet-rich fibrin has the natural power to heal and regenerate your body’s tissue. Our patients love PRF injections as they offer a quick and straightforward in-office skin rejuvenation treatment and can restore lost volume that has occurred over time. Created from a small sample of your blood and used as an injection, PRF initiates healing properties that revitalize your skin on a cellular level and are used primarily on skin that needs rejuvenation, around the eyes, and in some cases, for hair rejuvenation.
What are the Benefits of PRF Injections?
The main benefit of PRF is that it employs your body’s cells, which promotes optimal results for your skin; it couldn’t be more natural for our clients, and it is very safe and effective. Skin, especially around the eyes, is extremely delicate. For many, it’s painful or problematic to think of invasive surgeries around these sensitive areas. PRF is a non-surgical procedure offered at both of our premier locations, New Hope and Sellersville, leading to stunning results. More benefits of PRF are:
- Can potentially treat under-eye circles

- Can potentially decrease wrinkles
- Minimal risk of side effects

What to Expect on the Day of PRF Injections
Our top priority on the day of your PRF injections is to ensure your safety and comfort. Being confident and relaxed is a crucial ingredient to the success of the long-overdue life upgrade you have been seeking. PRF is most likely a three-step process. First, our technician will draw your blood. The number of tubes we take of your blood will be determined in your consultation and will be based on the amount of surface area we want to cover. These tubes are then spun in a centrifuge, a process that separates the blood cells from all the other nutrient-rich cells that we want, in short, we take out the secret ingredient. When the centrifugation is complete, the top layer ingredient is contained and readied to be injected. This concentrate is the PRF and is composed of your platelets and white blood cells. We can then use the PRF and inject it in multiple areas of your face for natural rejuvenation.
PRF Injections Recovery
The reason PRF is such a popular procedure for patients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is the quick and painless recovery time. Commonly, you may experience light bruising, redness, itching, and swelling that may last for a few days after your treatment. Once the injections have taken place it’s normal to feel a tingling sensation; this is the cells are being activated.
Ice or cold compresses can be applied to reduce swelling if required. You should avoid all anti-inflammatory medications for three days after your procedure. Any prescriptions or meds required will be discussed with our technicians, and you will leave with a patient-specific plan for a smooth recovery.
When it comes to the eyes specifically, you may see a yellowish tinge under the eye area after the procedure. Results begin to appear under the eye around the one to two-month mark.
When someone first hears about “state of the art” procedures, they tend to stress about costs. We avoid this by working hands-on with all our patients, evaluating cost factors, questions, and clarity of pricing, which is extremely important to us. The price for PRF in New Hope & Sellersville can vary with each patient. The main aspects involved with PRF are the number of sessions used to require the best results. After discussing your goals during the consultation at one of our two locations, you will be provided with a breakdown of the total cost of your PRF procedure.

Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!
The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
Love the place! The team is wonderful, skilled and very calming. Dr. Shrager is my favorite! Oh, and the renovation looks amazing!
