PRF Hair Restoration is the Answer!

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) represents second generation of platelet concentrates, which has gained increasing awareness in recent years for regenerative procedures. This biologic additive is completely autologous and possesses prolonged growth factor release, together with several other advantages over traditionally prepared platelet concentrates. PRF may benefit some patients more than others, so a careful evaluation is necessary before deciding PRF over our standard PRP hair treatment.

Good Candidates for PRF Hair Restoration in West Palm Beach, FL

If you are experiencing hair loss, you’re basically a good candidate for PRF hair restoration. However, the growth factors, white blood cells, stem cells, and platelets in the PRF work best when awakening dormant hair follicles. These hair follicles are still healthy and capable of growing hair, but they are spending more and more time in dormant phase. That’s why PRP hair restoration works best when the patient notices early hair loss. Clinically, this is known as androgenic alopecia.

PRF works well for both men and women, especially those in the early stages of hair loss. It also is effective for women with traction alopecia, hair thinning caused by hairstyles that pulled the hair to an extreme degree and inhibited hair growth. It is also a good procedure for people whose hair is thinning but who don’t want to resort to taking medications regularly.

The Procedure

30 to 60 ml of blood is drawn. We then place the blood in our centrifuge, which operates at the speeds necessary to separate the blood platelets and plasma. The PRF is then ready for injection.

Next we wash your scalp and apply topical anesthesia to reduce any discomfort. We also take photos of the treatment areas for before and after comparisons.

The hair restoration practitioner then injects the PRF into your scalp in the areas of thinning hair. These are shallow 4 to 6 mm injections made about every one half inch. We wipe your hair down, massage the scalp, and the procedure is now complete. You can return immediately to your normal activities or work.

When to Expect Hair Growth

The goal is two-fold. First, the hair follicles need to stop transitioning for longer periods into the dormant/resting phase of the hair growth cycle. Second, those follicles need to be given the growth factors, stem cells, and platelets to revive them, increase their physical size and get them to return to the growth phase producing thicker and better hair strands. This process normally takes 4 months in an average patient.

Preparation for the Treatment

Our hair restoration clinician will discuss any supplements and other medications you are taking. Any anti-inflammatory medications and certain supplements will need to be stopped, as they can lead to weaker concentration of platelets.

Aftercare

There isn’t really any recovery. You may take an over-the-counter pain medication if you feel any soreness, but you can shower and wash your hair in 4 hours. Don’t use ice packs on your scalp, as the cold can inhibit the PRF activity. Your scalp may be a little pink or red across the treatment areas for several hours after your session. We usually recommend holding off one to two days with typical hair maintenance, such as blow drying, coloring, curling, etc.
