What is the difference between PRP and PRF?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) production uses an anticoagulant to prevent your blood sample from clotting while it's processed. In PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) production, fibrin (a component of clots) is allowed to form. The final PRF product creates a sort of scaffold or matrix that enables platelets to be released more slowly once they're injected, versus the rapid release of platelets that is generated with PRP.
