As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and volume, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow cheeks. To combat these signs of aging, many people turn to cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers and PRFM. But how do these treatments work, and how can you achieve natural-looking results with PRFM and filler? This post will explore the science behind PRFM and fillers and their use in restoring volume loss and rejuvenating your features.

The Science Behind PRFM and Fillers

Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) and dermal fillers are powerful tools for restoring volume loss and enhancing natural features. PRFM is a natural product that contains your own growth factors and is obtained by processing a small sample of your blood. When injected into the skin, PRFM triggers the body’s natural healing process, promoting collagen production and rejuvenating your skin from within. We often refer to PRFM as a fertilizer for your skin. We’re planting seeds that feed collagen production, resulting in firmer, plumper skin. At The Skin Company, we use PRFM to treat hollows under the eyes, add volume to cheeks, and plump and smooth smile lines around the mouth. 

On the other hand, dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that provides volume and hydration. When injected into the skin, these gel-like fillers add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, resulting in a youthful appearance. At The Skin Company, we use fillers to add volume lost due to aging or to add balance to the face by subtly enhancing features such as the cheeks or lips.

Achieving Natural-Looking Results

The key to achieving natural-looking results with PRFM and fillers lies in the technique used by your injector. PRFM must be injected at precise depths to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. It should also be done every 6-8 weeks for three treatments to achieve optimal outcomes.

If your goal is natural-looking results, dermal fillers should be injected strategically to enhance your natural features without filling too much too quickly. This often results in that “overdone” look that many clients are fearful of when starting out with fillers. Choosing a highly skilled and experienced injector who can help you achieve your desired results is essential. The right injector will take the time to understand your concerns and goals and recommend a treatment plan that suits your needs.

Restoring Volume Loss with PRFM and Fillers

PRFM and fillers are excellent treatments for restoring volume loss in areas like the cheeks, temples, and under-eye hollows. Our skin loses volume and elasticity as we age, resulting in a hollow appearance that can make us feel tired and aged. At The Skin Company, we primarily use PRFM to restore volume to the delicate undereye area and around the mouth, and we use fillers to restore volume to the cheeks and lips.

Customizing the Treatment Plan

Your injector will customize your treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals. For instance, if you want to enhance your cheekbones, your injector may recommend a combination of PRFM and fillers to stimulate collagen production and add volume and definition. On the other hand, if you’re concerned about adding volume to the lips or smoothing lines around the mouth, they may suggest a filler-only approach to smooth out the skin, add volume, and boost hydration.

PRFM and fillers are powerful tools that can help you restore volume loss and rejuvenate your features. By working with a skilled and experienced injector, you can achieve natural-looking results that leave you feeling confident and refreshed. So, if you’re considering these treatments, be sure to take the time to research your options and book a consultation with Maria or Michelle at The Skin Company. They are committed to helping you achieve your desired results. Remember, aging is a natural process, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take control of how you age and feel your best at any stage of life.
