What It Is

Platelet- Rich Fibrin (PRF) Hair Restoration is a natural and safe procedure that involves drawing a small amount of blood, processing it to extract the platelet-rich fibrin, then injecting it into the scalp. PRF is an effective way to naturally prevent hair lost, and promote new hair growth.

PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) vs PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) are both treatments that use the patient’s own blood to promote healing and stimulate tissue regeneration and hair regrowth. They are similar in that they both involve taking blood, and spinning it down into a centrifuge in order to separate the red blood cells from the plasma and growth factors. PRF takes it one step further and adds in a step, that removes virtually all contaminating cells and converts it to PRFM through a controlled process. This extra step creates a scaffolding designed to preserve and protect the platelets. PRF is the next-generation PRP, and has been proven to contain a higher concentration of platelets and growth factors, yielding better results for you.

What To Expect

Your PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) hair restoration treatment will take around 45-60 minutes. One of our expert Registered Nurse’s (RN) or Nurse Practitioner’s (NP) will numb areas of the scalp with a topical lidocaine. Then the RN or NP will draw a small amount of blood from your arm into a vacuum collection tube and place it into a centrifuge for six minutes to separate the blood from plasma. The RN or NP will then inject the PRF product into the scalp with a small needle, focusing on the areas where you have experienced the greatest hair-loss. There may be some temporary discomfort during the injection site but should be minimal due to the numbing. You may experience occasional redness or bruising at the site of injection.

How It Works

PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) hair restoration in Austin is an effective treatment that utilizes the regenerative properties of your own blood to promote hair growth and improve hair quality. Once injected into the scalp, the PRF stimulates the hair follicles, promoting increased blood flow, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. This can result in improving healthier hair, reduced hair shedding, and increased hair thickness. The number of treatments needed depends on the individual patient, desired outcome and treatment plan. On average a patient can expect results after 3-6 sessions, 1 month apart and will need a quarterly treatment (every 3-4 months) to maintain results.
