Frequently Asked Questions
Is PRF Permanent?
There is no non-surgical hair restoration procedure that can permanently restore hair, especially if there are genetic factors at play. However, it can slow the progression of hair loss. With regular maintenance treatments following your initial round of PRF injections, you can promote results that last several years and potentially decades.
Some patients choose to use PRF hair restoration injections in conjunction with other therapies such as hair transplant surgery, laser therapy, and topical medications. This is certainly doable in most situations and can help improve and prolong hair growth.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Patients tend to start seeing results after their second, third, or fourth treatment. This roughly correlates to about two to four months following treatment. Some may see it sooner and for others, it may take longer. It is dependent on several factors, including how well you adhere to aftercare protocols, your biology, the cause of the hair loss, and even environmental factors. The average amount of time it takes to see results is about three to four months.
What Is Fibrin?
Fibrin is a protein found in the blood that is a major component of blood clots. This protein is found in long chains and is insoluble. This means it cannot be dissolved in water and makes it a sturdy, useful protein for clotting. In turn, when injected into the scalp, this works to build scaffolding in the hair follicles and skin to promote increased and better quality hair growth.
Is Platelet Rich Fibrin Hair Restoration Safe?
PRF hair restoration is a safe procedure that carries few risks. Since all components of the treatment except for the needle come from the patient’s body, an allergic reaction is nearly impossible. While side effects such as infection are possible, they are rare and treatable.
What Are The Medical Applications?
The first uses of platelet rich fibrin were in dentistry to aid in wound healing following surgeries and major procedures. PRF is also used in several other specialties such as sports medicine, dermatology, urology, and pain management. Similar to PRP, it can be used to aid in the healing of soft tissue injuries and surgical incisions.
