Many know of the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to help address signs of aging, such as wrinkles, issues with complexion, and even hair loss. Backed by science, PRP treatments have demonstrated incredible efficacy in addressing those issues and providing sustained improvements. However, like with most things, there’s room for improvement. The platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) is the next evolution of PRP.
How Is PRFM Different From PRP?
Utilizing the same methods as PRP and addressing the same concerns, PRFM differs in the power of the serum. Traditional PRP utilizes your treated blood to isolate growth factors that help heal and rejuvenate target areas such as the skin or scalp.
PRFM boosts the efficacy of that serum by increasing the concentration of those growth and healing factors. Like the difference between a cup of tea and a shot of espresso, PRFM offers a longer-lasting and more sustained release of growth factors, allowing you to experience rejuvenation for a greater amount of time.
How Does PRFM Work?
Our blood carries incredible components known as growth factors capable of regulating the creation of new cells, promoting the health of current ones, and aiding in the healing of wounds.
The direct injection of these growth factors offers their benefits immediately into the injection site. For the skin, we see the growth of healthy, new skin, the increase in the production of vital structural proteins such as collagen and elastin, and we see improvement in skin complexion. When collagen and elastin levels increase, and their structural quality improves, the skin appears more youthful and healthy.
For hair, we see follicles spend a longer amount of time in the growth phase of their cycles and spend a shorter duration in the shedding period. .
