When it comes to pursuing an aesthetic treatment, what do you look for? Most often treatments require utilizing materials or substances that do not naturally occur in your body. However, PRP and PRFM offer an exciting treatment option that harness the abilities of your own body’s natural growth factors. Explore the potential treatment options during a consultation with us at the Kagan Institute in the Los Angeles area.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a golden yellow growth substance obtained from your own blood. It is rich with growth factors that, when reintroduced to your body, stimulate and encourage natural growth and development processes. It can be used for a range of treatments as it can effectively encourage the production of new tissues.
What Is PRFM?
Platelet-rich fibrin mix (PRFM) is an enhanced version of PRP. Just like PRP, PRFM is obtained from your own blood and purified to isolate the plasma. However, the PRFM takes the process a step further. The additional step in the process enriches the structure of the platelets, protecting them. This enhances their functionality and helps gradually disperse the growth factors, providing rejuvenating properties longer and promoting long-lasting results.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
PRP and PRFM treatments begin with a simple blood draw. The sample collected is placed in a special centrifuge, which spins at a rapid rate to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. It is then either purified and prepared for treated or further treated to become PRFM.
PRP and PRFM treatments are performed on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our California offices. There is no downtime associated with these treatments, and they should not take much time out of your daily activities. Results will vary, but they will gradually develop and improve over time as your body responds to the stimulation of the platelets.
Could I Benefit from PRP and PRFM?
PRP and PRFM are derived from your own blood, and they are unique to you. This makes them a viable treatment option for nearly anyone, and they may be particularly appealing as treatment options for individuals who are seeking more natural treatments. They may be beneficial for those who are hesitant to pursue treatments that utilize factors foreign to their own body.
A consultation with our professionals at either of our Los Angeles area locations can help best determine if these rejuvenating treatments could be right for you. During your visit, our professionals will discuss your treatment options and your goals to help develop your unique treatment plan.
