Hair thinning is a normal part of aging and affects both men and women. However in some, hair loss could occur due to genetics, alopecia areata, and even severe stress. Platelet-Rich-Fibrin (PRF) hair restoration is a new, non-surgical treatment that uses cell growth factors to regenerate and restore the inactive hair follicle through wound-healing technology.
Before the procedure, the patient’s scalp is numbed with a topical anesthetic cream to make the treatment virtually painless. Once the serum is isolated, it is strategically injected into the scalp where hair loss or hair thinning has occurred. When the procedure is over, the patient can resume their normal daily activities. The hair follicles treated with PRF will immediately be reinvigorated and begin to grow new hair. The hair will strengthen and become thicker as time goes on. Hair growth is a slower process, and results can be seen within three to six months.
