Benefits of PRP and PRFM

Have you heard of PRP or PRFM? If not, today’s your lucky day! PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma, is an amazing treatment that uses your OWN plasma to aid restore skin, promote hair growth and more. PRFM, or Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix is the latest advancement, considered second generation PRP, in this growing technology. Since both treatments use your own body’s healing properties, you don’t have to worry about negative reactions. Sounds cool, right? Let’s take a look at what PRP and PRFM can do for you!

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP, aka Platelet Rich Plasma, is the liquid portion of the blood that mainly consists of growth factors, stem cells, proteins, and platelets. Your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the plasma, then it is injected anywhere on the face to stimulate collagen, even helping under eye circles, and is also used in the scalp to stimulate hair growth!

PRP for Hair Growth

PRP is commonly used as an injection into the scalp. This helps to promote hair growth, prevent hair loss and restore strands to their natural thickness. PRP injections in areas of thinning hair (for men AND women alike) can restore fertility to the scalp for better hair growth, improve strength and thickness of existing follicles, and even restore some lost follicles to reverse hair loss. Watch the video below for a look at the process!

How PRP Benefits Your Skin

Here are all the ways PRP/ Plasma Facelift can benefit your skin!

  • 10‑12% thicker skin
  • Anti‑inflammatory & aids healing
  • Creates new skin cells
  • Stimulates collagen & elastin production
  • Rebuilds scars, lines, and texture 
  • Fills hollow areas like under your eyes
  • Results in smoother, younger looking skin

PRP can even be used with microneedling to better treat wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and surgical scars. 

What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)?

Selphyl PRFM is more advanced than PRP and it’s our favorite to use here at FACE! By creating a scaffold in skin, the platelets last for more than 5 hours in skin rejuvenation treatments, and 7 days in hair restoration treatments. To give you an idea of how this differs from PRP, platelets used in PRP only last minutes! So, you can imagine how much more effective the results of PRFM can be. 

What Else Can PRFM Be Used For?

PRFM is such a versatile procedure. Besides stimulating collagen in the skin and restoring lost hair, here are some more benefits of PRP.

Post‑laser. 

When you apply the PRP immediately post laser procedure, it will speed up healing, stimulate more collagen, and help regulate your melanocytes.

Filler alternative. 

PRP can go in places filler can’t go, which is great if you want to eliminate any complications, or fill areas like the mid forehead which is contraindicated with fillers, due to the vessels there. 

Best of all, there’s minimal pain and no downtime!
