PRFM Facelift

The Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix Facelift combines triggered cell renewal with dermal filler to achieve beautiful and natural-looking results, with minimal downtime. Most clients return to their normal activities the same day.

Key benefits of a PRFM Facelift: 

  • Overall tissue rejuvenation/regeneration
  • Reduced appearance of scars
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Minimize pores
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • New collagen and elastin production
  • Natural and chemical-free

Studies have shown that PRFM achieves even better results than PRP (platelet rich plasma) because it contains 8 to 10 times more growth factors than PRP, and possibly more stem cells. PRFM also stays in the area for up to a week, while PRP only lasts for a day. 

Key areas that can be improved:

  • Hollow-looking tear troughs
  • Dark circles around the eyes
  • Acne scars
  • Crepey skin
  • Sagging cheeks
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip lines
  • Deflated skin
  • Lower eyelid lines

When you arrive for your appointment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your face. A small amount of blood will be drawn, and the blood will be placed within a centrifuge, where the red blood cells will be separated from the platelets and other wanted cells.

Next, the dermal filler* will be injected into areas of your face that were discussed during your consultation. Once the dermal filler has been administered, the prepared platelet-rich fibrin will be placed into a syringe and injected exactly where the dermal filler was placed. The treatment takes about one hour. For most patients, we recommend a minimum of three treatments scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart. ***Some clients chose to do the procedure without dermal fillers. This can be discussed during your consultation. 

You may experience mild redness, slight swelling and bruising, and/or a tight feeling of the skin.  Results from a PRFM plasma facelift typically become visible six weeks after treatment. Skin tightening, collagen production, and enhanced skin quality may take up to 3 to 4 months to become apparent, and will last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. We recommend 2-3 treatments spaced one month apart for best results. 

Many clients chose to do the PRP Microneedling on the same day as the PRFM Facelift.
