PRF is plasma-rich fibrin, while PRP is plasma-rich platelets. PRP is spun at a higher speed, separating out the platelets, which are then injected. PRF is spun at a slower speed, which causes the white cells, stem cells and platelets to be a part of the substance that is injected into the tissues.

Just like any injectable treatment, there may be redness, minor swelling, and bruising. In some cases, there may be a headache. These side effects generally pass within a few days at most.
