Though it sounds too good to be true, hair restoration with platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) delivers the results you’ve been dreaming about. PRFM is a concentrated, intensely healing portion of your blood. This 100% percent natural and surprisingly simple treatment reawakens dormant hair follicles for a fuller, thicker head of hair for both men and women without any downtime or risk of adverse side effects.
To help you better understand your hair restoration options, here are answers to some of your top PRFM questions:
Q: I’ve heard of PRP. What’s the difference between PRFM and PRP?
A: PRFM is the purest form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is drawn from your blood in our office. PRFM contains little to no red or white blood cells, which are undesirable because they have inflammatory properties. Pure PRFM is made by adding calcium chloride, which essentially removes impurities while creating a scaffolding effect to protect the PRP and prolong its healing benefits.
Q: What happens during a PRFM hair restoration treatment?
A: First, we draw your blood and isolate the PRFM. Then, we gently inject the PRFM into your scalp. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and involves little to no downtime.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of treatments is based on the amount of hair loss. We usually recommend 3 to 6 treatments.
Q: When will I see results?
A: You can notice results after 1 to 2 treatments, with optimal results up to 6 months after your last treatment.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Results vary and depend on many factors, including the desired amount of restoration and your body’s unique response to PRFM. Combining your PRFM treatment with Viviscal Professional® products (available at AVIE!) can help to enhance your results. Maintenance treatments are also recommended once your desired results are achieved.
