L-PRF is the abbreviation for Leukocyte Platelet rich Fibrin and is a patient´s derived blood concentrate that literally concentrates the best of the blood with one centrifuge spin. Leukocytes and Thrombocytes are blood cells that contain growth factors necessary for any kind of wound healing and tissue regeneration. The idea is to concentrate these cells and place them there where we need them the most: in all kind of surgery or therapies where we need a fast healing and regeneration. The treatment and technology is established in many medical fields since decades (orthopedic surgery, chronic wounds, burning wounds, dentistry) and has become a standard procedure at MIRALA CLINIC since we do have very good experience since 2001 with it.
With the help of L-PRF we are able to generate autologenous (patients´) Fibrin membranes that are the most biological, non reactive and cost effective membranes we can use (instead of collagen membranes made with animal origin). We observe less pain, less swelling and almost pain free patients after the surgeries and this convinced us to apply this technology in all kind of surgeries and even in dermal treatment (Vampire lift). Due to its natural biological antibacterial behavior of the L-PRF we are able to shrink down the antibiotics, which makes for us sense it times of increasing antibiotic resistances (WHO report 2014).
