What is PRF for hair loss?
PRF stands for “platelet rich fibrin” - a fibrin matrix comprised of platelet cytokines, growth factors and cells used to help promote skin rejuvenation, hair growth and wound healing - and is the next step in the evolution of natural skin and hair rejuvenation. PRF is used to address many of the same issues as PRP, but PRF releases growth factors for much longer, up to one week, versus PRP which releases growth factors for few hours. This means that PRF could have better longer-term benefits. The growth factors are what stimulate the stem cells to improve collagen and elastin in the skin and promote hair growth. The platelets in PRF are thought to be more robust than those in PRP, and to therefore promote faster healing.
How does this work?
Platelets in your blood play a role in clotting and healing. They are the cells that contain the cell signaling agents that orchestrate the body’s tissue rejuvenation and healing systems. Plasma is the liquid in blood that carries the platelets, along with red blood cells and white blood cells. During a procedure, your platelets are separated from your blood and processed to concentrate the growth factors. The prepared PRF is immediately ready for injection into the scalp to aid with hair restoration and growth.
What kind of improvement can I expect to see?
How much improvement you see will depend on factors like the amount and spacing of your hair loss and how recently the hair loss started. The sooner PRF can be administered after the discovery of hair loss the better. People with large areas of baldness and long-standing baldness likely won’t get good results in terms of hair regrowth, but the treatment can still be useful in patients like this to stop future hair loss. It’s important to remember that there is no cure for hair loss, and results will vary.
What are the risks and side effects of PRF for hair loss?
PRF injections are nonsurgical and present no significant safety risks. The most common side effects are mild pain, redness, and pinpoint bleeding during the injections. You might also have some discomfort or minor swelling for a few days.
When should i expect to see results?
Hair restoration as a result of PRF injections will depend a lot on your gender, your age, your genes, your hormones, and other factors, including the amount of hair you had to begin with. You’ll need repeated injections to see results. The exact number will depend on factors like the amount and pattern of hair loss and your age. Typically, you’ll start with one injection every four to six weeks, for three to six treatments months. Then you’ll space them out to once every three to four months, for up to two years.
