Platelet rich plasma in a fibrin matrix, or PRPFM, is plasma that has been enriched with platelets from your blood and combined with calcium chloride. It is used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, improve skin texture, and for hair restoration.
What is PRPFM?
Your body is full of proteins and compounds for healing and rejuvenation. PRPFM calls on your body’s natural healing capacity and is used to enhance your favorite aesthetic treatments to give them an extra boost. Platelet rich plasma in fibrin matrix begins with drawing a vial of your blood. The platelets and plasma are then separated from the red blood cells, leaving the PRPFM, which is loaded with activated platelets, and growth factors to regenerate your skin from within.
How is PRPFM used?
From injuries to anti-aging therapies, PRPFM is making a name for itself and its revitalizing benefits in many areas of medicine.
It has been used to treat an array of health conditions including:
- Tendon damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hair loss
- Sports injuries
When used for aesthetic purposes, PRPFM can be used for hair restoration, or with lasers or FDA approved microneedling to enhance results and speed recovery.
