Platelet-Rich Fibrous Matrix, or PRFM, has become very popular in the aesthetic industry. Slightly different that Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), PRFM is PRP mixed with a small amount of calcium gluconate causing a chemical reaction that converts fibrinogen into a stronger fiber matrix .
For those looking for alternatives to synthetic fillers and want to look more youthful in the most natural way possible, PRFM is an excellent option. Using PRFM during micro-channeling and other ablative treatments is another great option as it enhances results above and beyond what the procedures can do alone.
There are many ways PRFM can be used aesthetically. One way is to address specific concerns, which may lead a patient to initially consider a facelift. For those who aren’t yet ready or willing to take that step, a facelift via PRFM is a more affordable and natural option. You can wake up the next day feeling and looking fantastic without significant swelling, bruising, itching, or lumps and bumps.
Areas that can be addressed can include the following…
• Upper jawbone: eliminates sagging and increases the jaw angle.
• Lower jawbone: lifts the jowl area and adds volume.
• Upper cheekbone: tightens and enhances area.
• Lower cheek: restores cheek structure.
• Tear trough and mid-face: addresses the hollowness under the eyes.
• Nasolabial folds: Fills in and reduces laugh lines
• Corner of the mouth: addresses Marionette lines
In addition to using PRFM along with micro-channeling, which will expedite healing, improve texture, diminish scars, and reduce pores, your results can be nothing short of amazing. In fact, both can be done the same day, as long as the micro-channeling procedure comes first.
Results to treat any or all of the above areas generally last about a year. For those patients who need or would like touch-ups, their results are still improved from before the filler. However, it is important to remember that this is a natural filler, and will not give you the much more immediate and noticeable results of products such as Juvederm and Restylane. The results of using PRFM also takes more time, but ultimately can be a very satisfying without the risks of using synthetic fillers.
