Platlet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Both men and women struggle with hair loss and are constantly searching for the right treatment. PRF hair restoration treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses your own blood to stimulate hair growth. It is similar to Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP for hair thinning treatment. It is a relatively new procedure, but there is growing evidence that it can be effective in treating hair loss.
How Does PRF Work for Hair Loss?
During a PRF hair treatment, your doctor will take a small sample of your blood. The blood will then be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood (white blood cells and red blood cells). The platelets collect at the top of the vial. The PRF and PRP are then injected into the scalp. The platelets contain growth factors that can help to stimulate hair growth. The growth factors can also help to improve the health of the hair follicles during your hair restoration.
What Should I Expect After a PRF Treatment?
After your platelet hair treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own within a few days. You may also experience some hair shedding in the weeks following the treatment. This is normal and is a sign that the treatment is working.
