What is PRP and PRF Therapy?
PRP is a proactive non-surgical therapy for male and female patients who are experiencing hair loss.
Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. As a result, PRP is recognized as an all-natural scalp, skin and hair procedure that is performed in physicians' offices.*
When injected into specific areas of the scalp, PRP acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen growth and tissue regeneration. In this way, PRP stimulates new hair growth.*
PRF Explained. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is an advanced form of PRP. PRF has been used for decades in dentistry and orthopedics. PRF contains stem cells, fibrin and greater concentrations of growth factors. This higher concentration of growth factors and stem cells promotes more hair growth than PRP alone.
The fibrin in PRF acts as a scaffolding to keep the growth factors and stem cells in the areas of the scalp where needed. The PRF does not diffuse away from areas where they are injected. This releases more concentrated growth factors over a longer period of time.
How many PRF treatments are needed? For best results, four consecutive monthly treatments are followed by quarterly treatments to maintain the results. After a year, treatment frequency can be reduced, based on your specific requirements. Results vary from person to person.
