Our Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Hair Restoration Treatment helps reinvigorate dormant hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth! Additionally, it improves blood supply to the hair follicles and decreases inflammation which helps with the thickness of hair shafts and supports healthy hair follicles.
The treatment consists of drawing a patient’s blood, spinning the blood in a centrifuge, and then extracting the patient’s own platelets that are rich in growth factors to be re-injected into the scalp areas.
PRF for Hair Restoration is a relatively easy and quick treatment with minimal downtime.
Most patients make great candidates for PRF Hair Restoration!
Many of us suffer from factors that can cause excessive hair shedding and thinning of the hair. In fact, 85% of men and 50% of women will deal with some type of hair loss over the course of their lives? 1,2
There are a few circumstances in which hair loss cannot be treated successfully with PRF. This includes a medical condition known as scarring alopecia as well as any hair loss where the follicles are permanently damaged/inactive, or skin has grown over the follicles. Patients should be considered for a hair transplant in these cases.
The treatment consists of numbing the treatment areas with topical numbing cream and having your blood drawn. Your provider then spins it in a centrifuge to separate out your PRF from your red blood cell; then, several injections are performed directly into the scalp area. A post-care serum is then massaged onto the treatment area.
Some bruising, swelling, and redness after the procedure are normal. A mild headache that day and the next day can occur as well, in which case Tylenol or Advil can be taken.
Patients should expect to commit to at least three monthly treatments, and it is usually advised to follow this with three bi-monthly treatments.
This is due to the fact that our hair grows in various cycles, and we want to be sure to address the hair growth at each of these time points for best success. Ideally, a patient would do maintenance treatments about two to three times a year annually after this.
Improvement in hair thickness and length is most commonly seen after the third month, but it can take up to six months for optimal growth to be seen.
This treatment is a natural approach for treating hair thinning and does stimulate thicker and new hair growth. However, we normally shed hundreds of hairs a day, and this includes any new hair growth from PRF treatment.
Although the new hair growth is not “permanent,” by continuing maintenance treatments and our recommended Nutrafol supplements, we can help patients maintain a healthy amount of new hair growth.
Hair transplant surgery can be quite costly and may require more downtime compared to PRF hair restoration treatments. Additionally, it only consists of transplanting new hair follicles onto the scalp, which addresses just one stage of hair thinning.
PRF helps correct but also maintain and prevent future hair thinning.
PRF is the more advanced version of PRP.
While PRP is effective, it is not 100% natural as it does contain an anticoagulant ingredient.
On the other hand, PRF is 100% a patient’s own blood without any additive ingredients. This makes it a more “potent” formulation of a patient’s natural growth factors and platelets.
Nutrafol supplements help to address several root causes of hair thinning to adequately boost our hair restoration treatments.
The supplements are from natural ingredients and help supply our body with adequate nutrients to fight stressors, inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and other factors related to hair thinning.
A single PRF Hair Restoration treatment can cost between $1000-$1200 per treatment, depending on the desired results. At Skin by Lovely, we offer PRF packages to help you save on treatment.
