PRF hair loss treatment. Stimulate new hair growth.
Did you know that it’s possible to naturally stimulate new hair growth with our REGROW-IT treatment?
WHAT IS IT?
There are two predominant natural treatment options to stimulate hair growth: Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) or Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF). Both Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and Platelet-ich Fibrin (PRF) are created using your own blood. With PRP and PRF therapy, platelets are separated from your own blood which creates the liquid gold. So what’s the difference?
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)
The PRP is processed to make it less rich in white blood cells and to inhibit the formation of a fibrin matrix. Because of this, PRP only triggers cell growth and tissue regeneration for a few minutes.
Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF)
Skin Deep specializes in PRF. With PRF, the blood is drawn and processed until it is rich in platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells. Platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells are essential to the body’s healing process and regeneration. As a result, PRF injected into the skin or the scalp triggers cell growth and tissue regeneration for as long as 10-12 days!
WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
Men and women can benefit from this treatment. Anyone who would like to treat pattern balding, increase hair growth, stimulate new hair growth could have exceptional results with PRP or PRF therapy. This treatment can also be used by anyone interested in improving fine lines, wrinkles, folds, scarring, volume loss, pigmentation, and skin texture and tone.
BEFORE & AFTER
What can be expected during treatment?
A PRF treatment usually takes less than an hour. During that time, we draw several tubes of your blood and process it, resulting in a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) clot and white blood cells. The PRF contains the growth factors we inject into the target area. Then, we numb the treatment area with numbing cream. Once the area is numb, we use a small needle to administer multiple injections of PRF to the treatment area.
Is there pain or discomfort associated with PRF treatments?
Topical numbing makes the treatment more comfortable, of course. During the blood draw, you will experience a slight pinch when the needle is inserted. After the treatment is over, the skin may feel warm, tight, or irritated, pink or mildly red as if you were experiencing a sunburn. An ice pack can be used as needed to reduce warmth, redness, and inflammation.
What are pre-care instructions before a treatment?
Pre-care is relatively simple. We recommend drinking plenty of water and having a light healthy meal before your procedure. Refrain from drinking caffeine or alcohol. Do not exercise for 24-hours before your appointment.
What is the downtime after a treatment?
At Skin Deep, we define downtime as not being able to work or go out in public. Downtime is unique for every patient, and typically PRF treatment has no downtime. Warmth, redness (tingling/stinging), inflammation (swelling) tenderness-soreness can occur that usually resolves within 24 hours along with the warm temperature. Red marks disappear within a week or two. If you experience any discomfort during those first few days following your treatment, Arnica gel and capsules can help heal the bruising faster.
What are the aftercare instructions following the treatment?
Refrain from touching the treated area for 4-6 hours after treatment. You may wash the treated area the following morning using a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water. With a clean towel, gently dry the skin. Do not apply moisturizers or makeup for 24 hours. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, exercise, UV light, and heat (saunas, steam, tanning beds, hot showers, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment. While the skin is healing, use gentle skincare products and avoid chemical and physical exfoliation.
How many treatments are needed in order to see results?
An initial series of 3-4 PRF or PRP injections are recommended to see and experience the best results from the treatment. Each session will continue to stimulate cell rejuvenation and stimulate collagen production.
When will I see results?
Patients typically see results 3- 6 months after their first series of PRF treatment for hair regeneration.
How long will the results from a PRF procedure last?
In general, results will last as long as 2-4 maintenance treatments are performed each year.
