Revitalize Your Skin with PRFM
Is your skin feeling leathery and dry? Are you tired of looking in the mirror, only to see spots and lines? Age, pollution and hormonal changes can take a huge toll on your skin. With the Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) treatment, you can revitalize your skin through the healing power of platelet-rich fibrin.

What Is Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix?
PRFM is a procedure that uses your body’s platelets to rejuvenate and re-energize your damaged and aging skin. Platelets are a component of your blood. They contain essential growth factors and nutrients that can repair damaged dermal cells and restore your skin’s vitality.
How is the PRFM Procedure Performed?
PRFM starts in our Revitalize! CNY clinic where we examine your skin and determine the extensiveness of treatment required. We will draw a few vials of blood from you and place the vials into a centrifuge machine. This separates the various components of blood and allows us to harvest your blood plasma.
This plasma is drawn into a fresh syringe and is injected directly into the treatment sites. In some cases, it is collected in a tube/box and applied in gel format onto your face. Your skin then absorbs the platelet-rich fibrin, where your platelets then heal the damaged dermal cells, revitalizing them fully.
Benefits of PRFM treatment
It keeps chemicals out of your skin
PRFM is a treatment that uses your own blood plasma and platelet-rich fibrin to heal your skin. It replaces any medication or chemical-based skincare treatments that are typically alternative solutions for aging and loss of vitality. This keeps your skin healthy and prevents infusion of any additives or synthetic formulations.
It ensures your body doesn’t reject the treatment
Since the platelets are harvested from your own body, the chances of your skin rejecting the treatment are very slim. The plasma is made by your body and is naturally suited to your body. This prevents any skin sensitivity.
It infuses essential nutrients and growth factors into your dermal cells
Your blood plasma and platelets are chock-full of nutrients, vitamins, growth factors and healing agents which reduce oxidative stress in your skin. They also heal and repair your dermal cells, allowing your skin to reduce the appearance of lines, spots and dullness. In fact, some studies suggest that PRFM contains 8X-10X more growth factors than any other skin rejuvenation procedure.
It improves dermal cell functionality
Once the PRFM infuses your skin cells, they activate the cells and strengthen dermal cell functionality. You will notice that the growth factors in the PRFM improve the skin’s ability to transport blood, oxygen and nutrients. You’ll also notice that your skin starts to feel softer and more radiant over the course of a few weeks.
It offers long-lasting results
Many of the synthetic formulations that are used in alternative skin rejuvenation treatments contain blood thinners. This makes the results very short-lived. On the other hand, blood plasma and platelets take a long time to be fully absorbed in the skin. You’ll see that they actively work on your skin for weeks after the procedure.
How Long is the Recovery Period for PRM?
PRFM is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. The procedure can be completed in under an hour and you can resume your normal activities as usual. You may have minor bruising on the sites where the PRFM was injected. Some patients experience minor skin dryness, itching and redness too. But these will disappear in a day or two.
Normally, it takes about 3-6 months for the PRFM to fully work on your skin and then you begin to notice a change in the health, texture and tone of your skin. The final effects can be seen in a year’s time and you’ll notice how the signs of aging and dermal ill-health have reduced.
