Hair Growth Restoration
Let your Hair do the Talking
Hair loss can happen for a number of reasons and it’s important to start treating right when you begin to notice signs of thinning hair. PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) is concentrated with fibrin from your own blood. PRF has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the scalp to strengthen existing hair follicles. Results are generally visible at three weeks and continue to improve gradually over the next three to six months. Generally, three to four initial treatments are recommended, however, more may be indicated for some individuals. Current research shows results may last 18-24 months. Once your optimal results are achieved maintenance treatments may be required to maintain your results and enhance longevity.
Alternatives for Hair Treatment:
PRF hair restoration is thought to stimulate and strengthen existing hair follicles but it does not create new hair follicles or restore follicles that have died. Thinning hair is proven to benefit from PRF treatments, but is not used to treat complete baldness due to the lack of surviving follicles. There are alternative forms to PRF scalp treatments that are non-surgical and surgical. Non-surgical alternatives consist of pharmaceutical therapy such as Propecia (finasteride), topical treatments such as Rogaine, and homeopathic treatments. The surgical alternatives of aesthetic injectables are Follicular Unit Extraction and FUT (strip procedure). Depending on your specific hair loss situation will determine which treatment option is best to achieve your desired results.
Description of PRF Scalp Treatments:
Blood is drawn and is then placed in a vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells, plasma and fibrin. The process concentrates the PRF which contains white blood cells and stem cells. This platelet rich fibrin is then injected into the scalp with the intention of causing regeneration. PRF causes a mild inflammation reaction that triggers the healing response from the body. As the fibrin organizes in the treated area they bring a number of healing properties to promote cell growth and tissue responses including attracting stem cells to repair the damaged area.
