Commonly known as PRP, Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix has been around since the early 2000’s. This regenerative therapy is thought to promote your body’s natural healing abilities by utilizing your own blood platelets to release growth factors. This surgery alternative has been shown to stimulate the repair of damaged cartilage, cells and tissue, potentially restoring pre-injury function.
Through a controlled separation process, almost all contaminants are removed to create a pure platelet solution. PRFM takes this pure solution to the next level through a proprietary step by forming a gel-like substance, or scaffolding, that protects and preserves platelets for injection.
What are Growth Factors?
Growth factors are protein molecules found naturally in your body and released by the platelets in your blood. With hundreds of different types in existence, each help in varying ways including regulating cell growth, preventing cell death, and increasing circulation to name a few. Among the benefits of growth factors are their ability to act as chemical messengers, communicating with cells to stimulate growth and repair.
