Platelet Rich Fibrin or PRF is quickly becoming an integral part of treating hair loss for both men and women. The PRF which has a high concentration of platelets, fibrin, white blood cells, and stem cells is extracted from the client’s own blood and then is injected into the thinning hair area. The platelets attach to the fibrin network and release the growth factors that are responsible for creating new skin cells, collagen, and blood vessels thus stimulating new hair growth.
The PRF growth factors are released much slower than the older PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection method, which provides the added bonus of longer hair growth stimulation.
PRF Hair Restoration:
- Stimulates hair regrowth.
- The platelets promote the healing of tissue.
- Stimulates blood flow to the area
- Tissue regeneration
- Safe on all skin colors

FAQ’s – PRF Hair Restoration
What is PRF?
Platelet Rich Fibrin – PRF is a part of your blood, which contains a higher than a normal number of platelets, fibrin, white blood cells, and stem cells. They are like little “powerhouses” that are activated by contact with body tissues and release proteins called growth factors that increase blood flow, improve wound healing to help stimulate hair growth.
How does PRF hair restoration work?
The PRF is injected into the scalp where hair loss has been experienced. This treatment uses the body’s own stem cells to generate new hair growth and thicken hair.
What causes hair loss?
Hair loss, or alopecia, can have many different causes. Genetics always plays a role along with a hormonal imbalance. Some medical conditions such as lupus or diabetes and deficiencies in protein, iron, or vitamin B12 can also contribute to hair loss.
What can I expect during a PRF hair restoration treatment?
The procedure is fairly simple and starts with a blood draw, which is spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRF. The area being treated is cleaned and your body’s natural PRF is drawn into several syringes. Ice packs can be applied to the area to reduce discomfort then the area is injected in and around the area of thinning hair. The needle is super tinny and most clients do to even feel the injections which are completed within a few minutes.
How much downtime after PRF hair restoration?
For the first 48 hours shampoo, conditioners, and heat should be avoided, including hot showers. The hair may be rinsed with cold water only. Exercise should be avoided for 24 hours post-treatment.
Who can benefit from PRF hair restoration?
Any man or woman that has thinning or receding hair can benefit from PRF injections. This treatment will not stimulate growth where no actual hair is.
How often can I get PRF scalp injections?
It is recommended that clients get a series of 4 PRF hair restoration treatments 4 weeks apart to see optimal results. Once the initial series of PRF treatments is completed it is recommended to have one maintenance procedure every 6 to 12 months. When this treatment plan is followed the success rate is close to 80%.
