What PRFM Can Do For You
If you like keeping up with the trends, you’ve probably heard of PRFM techniques becoming popular recently— especially with celebrities who swear by them. However, it’s not just one procedure, but rather a technique that is being proven to be a highly-useful method of jumpstarting the body’s natural systems with the body’s natural substances. Although it’s surely being developed into new, successful procedures, there are a couple options to know about because of their effectiveness and popularity.
What is PRFM?
PRFM stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix, and can sometimes be referred to by PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma. This is a valuable serum that is distilled from a patient’s blood sample by separating the platelets from the plasma, which are the two main components of blood. Why is it valuable? PRP contains highly-concentrated growth factors, which are responsible for maintaining your body’s various rejuvenating systems like the skin or hair follicles. As we age, these systems can become lacking and a highly-concentrated dose of growth factors can make them become efficient again.
PRFM Microneedling: How It Works
You might know about this treatment by its more popular name, the Vampire Facial (although this term has sometimes come to refer to any PRFM facial treatment). This treatment has been shown to be one of the most effective anti-aging and skin rejuvenating treatments available on the market. It begins with a blood sample, which is spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP, which is then applied on the skin. A microneedling device is then applied over the skin, which uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin, which are wounds that cause the skin to rejuvenate. This process is boosted by the PRP, leading to quicker, more effective skin rejuvenation, meaning it can effectively reduce issues like wrinkles, scars, and texture.
PRFM Hair Restoration: How It Works
PRFM hair restoration follows the same technique, but can effectively jumpstart hair growth in patients showing the beginning signs of hair loss on the top of the head. This is because hair follicles work the same way as the skin’s regenerative functions and can be boosted by highly-concentrated growth factors. This treatment can be preferable for patients who are unable or don’t want to undergo a transplant procedure for hair restoration— however, it’s recommended that patients continue to undergo PRP treatments every few months to maintain their results, as it doesn’t offer a permanent solution.
While PRFM techniques can seem like science fiction, they’ve become a staple in cosmetic practices due to their excellent results without the risk of reaction from the patient because it uses their own blood.
