Extend your PRP Treatments with PRFM Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix
PRFM, Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix, is a new advance in Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment that extends the time that PRP can work on local musculoskeletal tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for over 40 years in regenerative medicine. The potential for PRP applications to promote tissue healing following injury has been utilized to great effect by plastic surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine and many more.
The ability to heal with PRP just got better with PRFM. With PRP you extract a blood sample from the paint, concentrate the platelets and inject them into inured site. Since the patient own blood is used it is ideal to aid in the healing of the patient, since it is basically helping the body to heal itself. Often only one injection is needed. PRFM is that this technology binds the platelets into a gel matrix and extends the time the platelet activating factors are released to 6-8 days.
While regular PRP aids in healing for only a day or less than a day the PRFM method can last for a week or more!
PRFM is Derived Directly from a Patient’s Own Blood.
After the blood is drawn, it is centrifuged, and the platelets are separated. Through a proprietary system, the platelets are prepared and remain in a liquid form for injection for about 15 minutes. Once they reach the tissue, the gel matrix is formed, and the beneficial effects start to occur.
Although study results vary, some report a greater than 90% success rate with PRFM.
