PRF, or platelet-rich fibrin, has proven to be one of the most effective and natural ways to accelerate hair regrowth and stimulate dormant hair follicles. PRF is designed to increase blood supply and provide nourishment for your hair follicles. This increased blood supply allows follicle diameter to increase, which leads to thicker hair shafts.
PRF requires a small amount of blood to be drawn and then spun at a low speed in a PRF centrifuge. Low-speed results in a serum with a high strength of platelets, stem, and white blood cells. Once the serum has been collected, surface injections are made into the thinning areas of the hair. Injections of PRF trigger hair follicles to grow by stimulating stem cells. At the same time, PRF encourages and accelerates tissue regeneration and healing. PRF is particularly effective in the beginning stages of hair loss, where it stimulates dormant hair follicles to return to a growth phase.
PRF comes from your blood, which makes it is a very safe procedure with few side effects. All you do is get your blood drawn and then injected into the scalp. PRF treatment for hair is a relatively painless procedure, has almost no known risks, and very little downtime. If you feel any discomfort, over-the-counter pain relievers help with any pain. You may experience mild swelling for a week post-procedure. Do not use ice-packs or other treatments for swelling. The swelling is normal and will subside within a few days. You can wash your hair almost immediately, but if your scalp feels tender, wait a day or so before blow-drying or using heated tools on your hair.
PRF treatments for hair are safe for both male and female patients and all ethnicities.
