You may have heard of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) in reference to the vampire facial because these treatments have been quite popular in recent years. You might know that PRP contains proteins that support cell growth when injected, helping to enhance many skin care treatments. For example, PRP can help you achieve younger looking skin, heal the appearance of a scar, and help regrow hair.
At the Plastic Surgery Center and PSC Aesthetics, we’ve gone one step further with PRP by adding PRFM (Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix) to our treatment offerings for a cutting edge treatment. Let’s look at why everything’s better with PRFM.
Just like traditional PRP treatments, with PRFM, we extract platelet-rich plasma from your own natural blood cells. Then, we further filter out unnecessary red blood cell and white blood cell contamination for the ideal solution: PRFM.
Because we convert the PRP to PRFM, we can better preserve the extracted platelets, providing you a superior treatment.
How It Works
PRFM uses the body’s own natural blood cells to provide both men and women with many skin rejuvenating benefits, complementing some of our most popular skin care treatments by boosting results and increasing improvement of lines, wrinkles, volume loss, scars, hair regrowth, and more.
PRFM stimulates your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing. The bottom line: with PRFM we can offer enhanced outcomes and unparalleled treatment. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite uses for PRFM.
PRFM with Hair Restoration
One of our exciting new offerings is using PRFM for hair restoration for both men and women. These injections usually occur in a series of three, one month apart.
With more than 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States struggling with some form of hair loss, we find that PFRM is one of our favorites for hair restoration because we can stimulate hair regrowth without any surgery or lengthy downtime. The treatment takes just 30 minutes and begins working right away.
Once we inject PRFM into your scalp, it stimulates stem cell growth and extends your hair growth cycle naturally. These treatments provide long-lasting results, and many patients notice hair growth in a short period of time.
PRFM with SkinPen
Another way we use PRFM for facial rejuvenation is with the SkinPen, a state-of-the-art precision device that stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen.
This new collagen production can reverse years of sun damage, address fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture, acne scars, and hyper-pigmentation.
We increase the improvement of SkinPen treatments with PRFM. By using PRFM at the treatment site, we can accelerate the healing process and greatly enhance your treatment results.
PRFM with Halo or PixelCO2 Laser
Your body’s natural aging process and sun damage over the years can make your skin look older than it really is. Also, environmental factors and even genetics can give you fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
With either the Halo™ hybrid fractional laser or the PixelCO2 Laser, we can address fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, skin texture, skin resurfacing, scar revision, enlarged pores, and other signs of aging.
After your Halo or PixelCO2 laser treatment, we can also use PRFM to encourage healing and further rejuvenate the skin on your face.
PRFM with Vivace
Vivace radio frequency microneedling alleviates fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes scars and stretch marks, and you can see the results immediately.
Just like microneedling, it creates tiny channels in the deepest layers of your skin, stimulating your body to produce collagen and improving contour, tone, and texture.
Adding PRFM after your treatment spurs rejuvenation in the treatment area, helping enhance your results and speed healing time.
PRFM with Fillers
We can also inject PRFM into the lips for hydration. We can do this at the same time we use fillers like Juvéderm to add fullness and subtle volume to your lips or smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
PRFM for Under Eye Circles and Bags
We can use PRFM to reduce dark circles, under eye bags, and fine wrinkles around the eyes. PRFM reduces discoloration and adds volume to smooth wrinkles.
Injecting PRFM is just like using filler. You should start seeing under eye improvement in three-four weeks. Initially we recommend a series of treatments for the best results.
Many of our skin care treatments and hair regrowth treatments are better with PRFM. If you’re ready to explore your options with PRFM, please call us at 316-688-7500 to schedule your consultation visit with a member of our skin care staff.
