Differences Between PRP and PRFM

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) vs Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)

Differences Between PRP and PRFMWhile the skin rejuvenation benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injectable treatment are well-known, a relatively new and improved solution called PRFM (platelet-rich fibrin matrix) can revitalize your skin in a deeper and more sustainable way.

If you wish to keep your signs of aging such as under-eye depressions and dark circles at bay and promote healthy hair re-growth, PRFM injections could be an excellent skin revitalization medical spa solution for you.

Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides safe and advanced injectable age-defying treatments, including PRP, PRFM, and dermal fillers to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

PRFM Contains More Powerful Growth Factors than PRP

PRFM injectable medical spa treatment is more effective than PRP injections when you want to correct under-eye signs of aging, restore thicker and fuller hair growth, and achieve other facial skin rejuvenation benefits.

Compared to traditional PRP injections, a custom PRFM treatment will contain a higher concentration of platelet and growth factors for blood vessel repair, cellular regeneration, and new collagen formation. According to researchers, while PRP contains 5x platelets and growth factors, the same quantity of PRFM contains 10 times of these critical biological elements.

PRFM’s unique platelet rich fibrin matrix also provides greater stability as the platelets are attached to the fibrin network and the growth factors get released more slowly compared to PRP. This allows you to have longer lasting results with just one PRFM treatment.

Blood flow renewal and sustained generation of new, healthy cells in the treated sites will provide you more natural looking outcomes with a PRFM treatment. Moreover, PRFM is more versatile solution for a wide range of skin and hair loss conditions, and will continue to work in the deeper skin layers to fight the aging process.

PRFM is More Effective for Hair Follicle Re-growth

The higher concentration of platelets and growth factors in PRFM gives it greater power than the traditional PRP to repair or replace damaged cells. That makes it much more effective in treatment hair loss and hair thinning conditions caused due to androgenic alopecia.

While a PRP injection will retain only the plasma and other platelets and remove all other compounds such as the stem cells and white blood cells, the PRFM therapy for hair re-growth is different. Apart from the platelets, it also includes additional compounds that act as thickening agents for the hair.

Therefore, the resulting fibrin matrix in PRFM has stronger platelet-driven growth factors when compared to the standard PRP formulation. The platelet release from PRFM preparation into the scalp occurs more gradually, helping enhance the blood flow in the affected areas. It will strengthen the skin structure and help manage hair loss and hair thinning conditions.

PRFM vs. Dermal Filler Injections

Dermal filler injections are widely accepted as a medical spa treatment to correct volume loss in areas such as under-eye. But the filler injections are produced synthetically, while PRFM is produced from your own blood.

Therefore, for a delicate skin area such as under-eye hollows, PRFM is more effective for safe elimination of aging signs. It will volumize the tear trough hollows, mitigate dark circles, redistribute fat bulges below the eyes (under-eye bags), and clear other eyelid skin irregularities more effectively.

Motykie Med Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for PRP, PRFM, and dermal filler injectable skin rejuvenation and hair loss treatments.
