What is PRFM?

The platelet-rich fibrin matrix is created on the day of your treatment. A small amount of blood is drawn and then placed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. After the platelet-rich plasma is separated, calcium chloride is added, creating the PRFM. The calcium chloride transforms the PRP into a soft gel, essentially creating a scaffolding that allows the growth factors in the PRFM to remain in the treatment area for longer.

What are the benefits of PRFM?

PRFM boosts the effects of PRP by holding the growth factors present in the PRFM in place in the treatment area. The product can produce enhanced healing and regeneration, with the PRFM remaining active for up to a week instead of being absorbed by the body in a day. PRFM produces improved results with PRP treatments. Some of the benefits include:

  • Aids in the revitalization of your skin when used in skin rejuvenation treatments
  • Helps to reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles
  • Can be used to treat hair loss
  • Can be used to speed healing after a surgical enhancement
  • Enhances the results of laser treatments for skin rejuvenation

The PRFM treatment

The procedure will depend on the area you want to restore. The basics of the process are as follows:

  • Drawing the blood sample and placing it in the centrifuge for separation
  • Applying a numbing agent to the treatment area
  • Creating the platelet-rich fibrin matrix
  • Injecting the PRFM into strategic points in the treatment area
  • You will be given instructions to follow before your treatment and post-treatment care instructions. These instructions may include avoiding blood-thinners and alcohol before and directly after treatment and other instructions to help you achieve optimal results.

What does PRFM treat?

PRFM has the same versatility as PRP, with heightened effectiveness. PRFM treats a range of conditions, including:

  • Restores skin firmness and quality with a natural gel rather than a synthetic filler
  • Smoothing lines and wrinkles
  • Enhances skin quality
  • An effective hair loss treatment to trigger healthy hair growth
  • Treats dark undereye circles
  • A natural dermal filler, triggering cell regeneration

Am I a candidate for PRFM?

If you are considering skin rejuvenation treatments or hair loss therapy, then you might be a candidate for PRFM. Schedule a consultation at Beck Aesthetic Surgery to see if PRFM is right for you. The PRFM is created from your own blood, so the treatments carry little risk. PRFM makes it possible to smooth your skin without a natural substance.

PRP vs. PRFM –What’s the Difference?

PRFM is a more advanced version of PRP, enhancing the benefits and improving results. PRFM is created using a slower centrifuge, which better preserves the cells and growth factors and creates a “scaffolding.” 

This scaffolding is called a fibrin matrix. It holds the platelets in the place where they are injected, allowing the age-defying growth factors to remain in the tissues for seven days or more.

Are there any side effects or downtime with PRFM?

There is no downtime or significant restrictions after PRFM treatments. You can return to your usual routine and activities, including gently showering and shampooing your hair. Wait for one day to resume hair growth topical medications.

Side effects may include minor swelling, tenderness or redness at the injection sites. These effects will fade quickly.

When will I see results?

Results take time to develop, and multiple treatments are often required to achieve full results. You can expect to see visible results developing in the weeks following your treatment, which increases with each subsequent treatment. Your treatment schedule is based on the condition of your skin or hair, and what Dr. Beck believes can be achieved with this groundbreaking regenerative treatment. If you are planning a skin rejuvenation with laser treatments, the addition of PRFM can enhance your results, while speeding healing.
