What is PRP and PRFM?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) are revolutionary regenerative treatments that harness your body's innate healing abilities. Through a simple process, growth factors within the blood are concentrated and injected into targeted areas to stimulate tissue repair, collagen production, and cellular regeneration. Cosmetically, PRP/PRFM is used to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and promote hair growth. Its natural composition and minimal risk make PRP and PRFM ideal options for long-lasting skin and hair rejuvenation.

What is the PRP and PRFM procedure like?

Maximize Your Natural Growth Factors

The PRP injection process, while advanced in technical terms, is simple and straightforward, involving three distinct steps and typically taking less than an hour to perform.

Here's a breakdown of the distinct steps involved in PRP treatment for skin and hair:

Blood Draw:

A small sample of the patient's blood is drawn, usually from the arm, using a syringe.

Centrifugation:

The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge machine, which spins at high speeds to separate the platelets, white blood cells, and growth factors from the red blood cells and other components.

PRP Preparation:

Once centrifugation is complete, the concentrated PRP solution is extracted and prepared for application or injection.

PRP Injection:

Once prepared, the PRP solution will be injected into targeted areas using a small cannula. Revitalize Your Cellular Function.

How is PRFM different from PRP?

Platelet-rich fibrin matrix is the next generation and more advanced form of PRP. The process of preparing PRFM by adding calcium chloride makes the platelets and growth factors more concentrated and also more stable. This more dense version of PRP contains a fibrin matrix that holds the platelets in place.

What conditions do PRP and PRFM Injections treat?

PURE Cosmetic Center Logo

PRP and PRFM injections have several cosmetic applications, including:

Skin Rejuvenation: PRP and PRFM can be used to improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.

Hair Restoration: PRP and PRFM stimulates hair follicles and promotes hair growth, making it an effective treatment for hair thinning or hair loss conditions like androgenetic alopecia.

Scar Reduction: PRP and PRFM injections can help minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars, by promoting collagen production and tissue regeneration.

Dark Circle Reduction: PRP and PRFM injections may improve the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by increasing blood flow and localized collagen production.

Overall, platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin matrix injections offer a versatile and natural approach to cosmetic rejuvenation, addressing various concerns with long-lasting results and minimal downtime.

What else can PRP and PRFM help with?

Because it uses your own blood to harness your body's natural healing process, platelet-rich plasma injection can help expedite healing after surgery, muscle injuries, chronic tendon injuries, or other soft tissue injuries.

Am I a candidate for PRP and PRFM Injections?

By Your Body. For Your Body.

PRP and PRFM injections are a safe and effective option for almost every patient. While there are some conditions that may contraindicate platelet-rich plasma injections, patients who are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are not pregnant or breastfeeding are typically good candidates.

PRP Injection Recovery

Recovery after PRP injections is usually minimal, with most patients resuming their normal activities right after their appointment. However, some minor side effects are possible, including:

Temporary Discomfort: Patients may experience minimal discomfort, redness, or swelling where platelet-rich plasma is injected, though these mild concerns typically subside within a few days.

What to Avoid: Patients are typically advised to hold off on vigorous exercise, sun exposure, and hot baths or saunas for a few days after injections to minimize the risk of swelling or irritation.

Gentle Skincare: Patients should use gentle skincare products and avoid harsh chemicals or exfoliants on the treated area for a few days post-treatment.

Results Over Time: Results from injections are gradual and may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body's natural healing processes take effect.

Recovery after PRP injections is generally quick and uncomplicated, with minimal downtime and discomfort. However, it's always important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your provider to ensure your smoothest recovery and most beautiful results.

PRP and PRFM Injection Results

Results from PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and PRFM (platelet-rich fibrin matrix) injections vary depending on skin type and health, but you can expect to see a noticeable improvement in skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and scars due to increased collagen production and tissue regeneration. For hair restoration patients, you can look forward to increased growth, increased density,and increased thickness, especially in areas affected by hair loss or thinning.

PRP and PRFM Injection FAQs

Platelet-rich plasma injection offers a multitude of benefits, including impeccably natural results and convenient treatment, without the risks or drawbacks of other procedures. With high satisfaction and safety, PRP injections are a worthwhile treatment for many patients. The newest generation of fibrin matrix injections makes results even better.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and PRFM (Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix) injections work by harnessing the healing properties of platelets, which are components found in the blood. Once injected, the platelets release growth factors and other bioactive proteins that stimulate the body's natural healing process. These growth factors promote tissue repair, collagen production, and the formation of new blood vessels, leading to improved skin texture, reduced inflammation, and enhanced healing in damaged tissues. PRP and PRFM injections are commonly used in various medical and aesthetic treatments, including skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, orthopedic injuries, and wound healing. The precise mechanism of action may vary depending on the specific condition being treated and the desired outcome.

Results typically take several weeks to months to develop as cellular regeneration takes place. Depending on your concerns and goals, multiple PRP sessions may be needed to reach the full potential of your treatment. We suggest at least 3 sessions of PRP or PRFM injection for the undereye area and at least 4 sessions of PRP or PRFM in the scalp.

Your PRP and PRFM results can last several months to a year or longer. We suggest a maintenance treatment every 3-4 months for optimal results.

PRP's benefits greatly outweigh its disadvantages. While you may notice some bruising or tenderness around the injection sites, these mild side effects will subside on their own within a few days.

Though most patients are ideal PRP candidates, certain conditions, such as cancer, blood conditions, and active infection, may prevent treatment. As always, it is important to discuss your full medical history with your provider to ensure optimally safe and effective treatment.

The process of harvesting and injecting platelet rich plasma is easily tolerated by most patients, requiring no anesthesia or sedation. While you will notice a pinching sensation during the blood draw and injection portions of your treatment, any discomfort you experience should be minimal and subside quickly.
