Why PRF

Platelet-Rich-Fibrin (PRF) hair restoration is a cutting-edge, non-surgical treatment that uses cell growth factors to regenerate and restore inactive hair follicles and treat hair loss.

PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) hair restoration utilises the patient's own blood to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair regrowth. By concentrating platelets and growth factors from the blood, PRF can improve blood circulation, nourish the follicles, and thicken existing hair while encouraging the growth of new strands. This personalised and safe treatment option is suitable for various types of hair loss, requires minimal downtime, and can be combined with other therapies.

Treating Your Hair Concerns

  • Hair thinning
  • Hair loss

How does it work

PRF injections are made from your own blood and a protein matrix called fibrin. Once harvested, it becomes a gel made up of a high concentration of white blood cells, fibrin, and stem cells (growth factors). These growth factors are injected into the scalp to help reinvigorate dormant hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth. The treatment also improves blood supply to the hair follicles and decreases inflammation which helps with the thickness of hair shafts and supports healthy hair follicles. Platelet-rich fibrin injections help stimulate healing. Hair follicles treated with PRF will immediately be reinvigorated and begin to grow new hair.

Your Questions Answered

What happens during the treatment?

A small amount of your blood is taken and processed using a centrifuge - a specialised system designed to extract your platelets, cytokines, and other growth factors in a safe clinical manner. While the blood is being prepared, your scalp will be numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream. Then, once the serum is isolated, it is harvested into syringes and strategically injected into the scalp where hair loss or hair thinning has occurred. After treatment, you can return immediately to normal daily activities.

How many treatments will I need?

The consensus opinion for treatment is to have four sessions approximately four weeks apart. The need for repeat treatments varies from patient to patient but can be repeated if further hair miniaturisation and thinning occurs.

When will I see results?

Restoring hair thickness and stimulating new hair growth takes time. Improvement in hair thickness and length, and decreased shedding is most commonly seen in the first two months. It can take up to six months to see optimal hair growth.

Is PRF safe?

PRF is your own blood, known as autologous. As you are using your own tissue to repair and improve your skin tissue, it should not cause you an allergic reaction.

What is the 'down time'?

The procedure takes less than one hour and has minimal to no downtime. You can go back to your regular activities immediately after treatment.

What is the difference between PRF and PRP?

PRF is the next generation of PRP. It is a revolutionary new development in aesthetic medicine with a range of indications including skin rejuvenation and hair loss. PRF contains only the patient’s own blood, whereas PRP contains an anticoagulant. That means that PRF contains a higher concentration of white blood cells, fibrin and stem cells and, using the patients' own blood sample, provides a completely natural way to improve hair loss.

Am I a good candidate for PRF Hair Restoration?

If you are experiencing hair loss you are likely to be a good candidate for PRF hair restoration. The treatment is most effective in the early stages of hair loss, when the hair follicles remain healthy and capable of regrowth. There are certain cases where PRF may not be effective, such as scarring alopecia or hair loss with permanently damaged or inactive follicles. In these cases, hair transplants may be a better treatment option.

If you are experiencing excessive hair shedding and thinning, due to factors like stress, inflammation, inadequate nutrition, genetics, hormonal imbalances, or harsh hair treatments, PRF may be a good option. It can also help women with traction alopecia caused by tightly pulled hairstyles. PRF hair restoration can combat these stressors, while providing the necessary nutrients to stimulate new and thicker hair growth.
