Platelet Rich Plasma With Fibrin
PRPFM VS PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma with Fibrin Matrix (PRPFM) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are both treatments where your blood is spun in a centrifuge and the platelets are reinjected to stimulate the growth cascade process. The difference between PRF and PRP is that PRP uses an anticoagulant in the blood collection tube to prevent coagulation, where PRF has a vial free from any additives. Additionally, PRF is spun at a slower speed than normal PRP. This means that less cells are damaged in the process, and allows for more of the white blood cells, fibrin, and stem cells to remain in the platelet layer. When the platelet layer is reinjected, it initiates the growth process by attracting stem cells to the area. The stem cells then help produce new blood vessels, collagen, and elastin in the area. This can help to naturally plump the skin, smooth fine lines, improve texture, and reduce scarring.
Areas For PRFM Injection
PRFM can be used in many facial areas. When injected under the eyes, it can improve dark circles, smooth wrinkles, and treat crows feet. It can also be injected in the lips to improve volume, plumpness, and texture. When injected in the cheekbones, it can act as a natural filler to add cheek volume and smooth fine lines. PRFM can also be applied across the face with microneedling to stimulate the growth cascade and act as a natural biostimulator in conjunction with the benefits of microneedling. It takes about 3 weeks to start seeing results, with full results after about 6 weeks. A second PRF treatment should be repeated 4-6 months after the first treatment, and annually afterwards for maintenance.
