PRP Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma

What is PRP therapy?
PRP, platelet-rich plasma, is a concentrate derived from whole blood and centrifuged to remove red blood cells. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important for healing and regeneration. When PRP is injected, it encourages tissue repair and blood flow at the injection site which can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging, as well as hair loss and collagen formation.

What is PRP used for?

  • Hair loss
  • Scar reduction
  • Collagen formation

How many treatments are needed?
Treatments can vary based each patient’s needs and treatment targets. PRP therapy for hair loss is initially performed as a series of 3-4 monthly treatments. After completing the initial series, maintenance is recommended with one treatment every 6-12 months. Similar regimens may be followed using PRP with microneedling to treat scars, stretch marks, and minimize pore size.

When do you see results?
Patients must go through a screening process to make sure they are a good candidate before treatment. Results may vary but are usually seen within six months of the first treatment.

PRFM Therapy by Selphyl

Taking Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to New Heights

At Nova Dermatology, we offer a number of treatments that use PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy to help patients achieve their ideal look and help to restore and regenerate cells along the skin, hair and more. With the popularity of PRP over the years, the Nova Dermatology team uses a specialized variation of PRP, known as PRFM.

What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has gained popularity as a natural and non-surgical solution for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. PRP involves using the patient’s own blood, enriched with platelets, to stimulate collagen production, accelerate healing, and promote tissue regeneration. PRFM, a new variation of traditional PRP, by the experts at Selphyl, takes PRP therapy to a higher level by introducing a proprietary technology that enhances its effectiveness and overall longevity.

What is PRFM?
PRFM, which stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix, is an advanced form of PRP developed by Selphyl. The key distinction lies in the way PRFM is prepared. During a PRFM procedure, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed using Selphyl’s patented technology to create a concentrated platelet-rich gel with a fibrin matrix. This matrix acts as a scaffold, allowing the platelets to release growth factors gradually over an extended period.

Compared to traditional PRP, PRFM offers several advantages. The fibrin matrix in PRFM helps to enhance the stability and bioavailability of growth factors, enabling a sustained release of these factors for up to seven days after treatment. This prolonged release can lead to more consistent and longer-lasting results compared to standard PRP.

In addition, PRFM’s unique preparation process eliminates the need for chemical additives or exogenous substances. The treatment uses the patient’s own blood components, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions or allergic responses. PRFM can be used for various applications, including facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, and improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

PRFM helps to elevate the effects of PRP therapy by incorporating a fibrin matrix that enhances the release of growth factors over time. While both are effective, PRFM’s innovative approach offers the potential for longer-lasting results and a reduced risk of complications compared to traditional PRP. Before choosing treatment with PRFM, it’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider, like Dr. Sandra Kopp and her team. During your consultation, you will see if PRFM is right for you and what kind of treatment protocol might best work for you and your specific issues.
