Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is derived from your own blood. Platelets are the component of your blood that allows it to clot and heal your wounds, and they’re derived and concentrated to create PRP.
PRP contains growth factors that promote regeneration and youthfulness when applied to your skin. It can also promote hair growth in bald spots. If you have injuries, PRP helps to speed up the healing process.
PRP can treat a variety of conditions and unwanted features, most of which come with age. These include:
During an initial consultation, Dr. Milanes assesses your goals, needs, and habits to determine if PRP treatments are your best option. Then, he works with you to choose which treatment can be most effective for you.
Luminary MD offers several treatments that use PRP to achieve optimal results. You can choose among the following treatments: Microneedling, Facial Rejuvenation, Hair Loss Injections, or Sexual Health.
PRFM stands for Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) which is derived from PRP then Calcium is added to it converting it to PRFM. When PRP is converted into PRFM, it becomes a long acting version of it. This means that your hair follicles or any target area being injected gets a longer exposure to the growth factors thus reaping the benefits longer.
Longer Life: Because of the longer life, the treatment areas are exposed to the growth factors for much longer. When PRP is injected, the growth factors peak at 12 hours and the product dissolves in 24 hours. With PRFM, the growth factors peak at 72 hrs, and the product dissolves in 7 days. This is like taking an injection for a medication weekly vs having to take it daily.
