Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments have become extremely popular in recent years. Using your body’s own natural blood cells, PRP is able to provide men and women with incredible benefits – both medical and aesthetic in nature. You could achieve younger-looking skin, or even heal the appearance of a scar. Now, Selphyl® has developed a new PRP system featuring a more efficient and better-controlled process. Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix takes PRP to the next level, providing men and women with better, more significant results for their treatments.
The team at R Medical Spa in St. Louis are proud to introduce PRFM treatments to our patients. With PRFM, we are able to create personalized skin rejuvenation and hair restoration treatments for beautiful, natural-looking outcomes. This minimally invasive procedure requires little to no downtime so patients could get right back to their normal routines without a lengthy recovery period.
What is PRFM?
Like traditional PRP treatments, PRFM is performed by extracting platelet-rich plasma from your own natural blood cells. The Selphyl PRFM process then takes additional steps to further filter out unnecessary red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC) contamination for the ideal solution. Converting the PRP to PRFM helps to better preserve the extracted platelets and sustain their release of growth factors for a longer period of time. This means a superior quality treatment and enhanced outcomes.
PRFM for Hair Growth
One of the most attractive benefits of PRFM treatments is hair regrowth. Many of us either know someone or is someone who suffers from hair loss. In fact, 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States are struggling with some form of hair loss. While it is most common among men, women are clearly not immune to this issue either. However, up until recently, most hair restoration treatments have seemed dated and associated with pain or unnatural outcomes. Not with PRFM.
PRFM treatments allow men and women to stimulate hair regrowth without any surgery or lengthy downtime. The PRFM hair loss treatment takes just 30 minutes to perform, and begins working right away. Once injected in the scalp, the PRFM stimulates stem cell growth and extends the hair growth cycle naturally. Depending on your unique situation, our R Medical Spa team will work with you to develop your own personalized series of treatments for optimal hair regrowth.
The results of your PRFM hair growth treatment are designed to provide long-lasting benefits. Many patients notice improvements in hair growth just months after their treatment. Three treatment sessions often provide optimal benefits, but will vary from patient to patient.
PRFM Skin Rejuvenation
PRFM can also be used to provide men and women with beautiful skin rejuvenating benefits. At R Medical Spa, we use PRFM to further enhance the outcomes of popular skin rejuvenation treatments including MicroPen microneedling, facial fat grafting, and dermal fillers. The PRFM complements these skin treatments by boosting the results for increased improvement of possible concerns such as lines, wrinkles, volume loss, scars, and more.
This is not the Vampire facelift™ which uses only PRP to stimulate an improvement of the skin quality. Instead, this next-generation facial uses PRFM, which lasts much longer than PRP and will have a significantly longer time to create and improve the skin quality. These PRFM facial treatments can also be used alone to enhance facial contours for an appearance that is years younger, yet still completely natural. The extracted PRFM from your natural blood cells is spun in a centrifuge then used much like any other popular filler (Juvéderm®, Restylane®, etc.): injected into the skin near the target area. This not only helps to replenish lost volume, but stimulates growth factors within your body to combat many of the common signs of aging.
