Understanding Your Hair Loss

Hair loss often originates from genetic and hormonal factors. A common cause is androgenetic alopecia, where genetics play a role. Hormonal changes, such as those experienced during menopause or pregnancy, can also influence hair loss.

Your environment and lifestyle choices can also impact the health of your hair, leading to thinning. Factors such as stress, diet, and exposure to pollutants can exacerbate hair loss. Even hairstyling practices and products might contribute to the problem. Recognizing these influences can help us develop a more comprehensive approach to combating your hair thinning or loss.

What Are Hair Restoration Treatments?

Hair restoration treatments aim to restore healthy hair by addressing hair loss, thinning hair, or changes in hair health at the source. Our treatments work on the follicular level to heal damaged and dormant hair follicles and promote natural growth. We use PRF injections during our hair restoration treatments to naturally promote hair growth and help patients achieve their desired results without using invasive techniques or harsh chemicals.

These treatments can meet the needs of patients with unique concerns and will produce visible results after completing the recommended number of treatments.

PRP Treatments for Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves drawing a little bit of your blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting it into the scalp. These platelets release growth factors that stimulate hair growth and strengthen hair follicles. PRP treatments are non-invasive and use primarily your body's own healing materials and processes to improve your hair loss.

PRF Treatments for Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a similar option for hair restoration that also involves the use of concentrated portions of your blood. However, PRF is developed by spinning the blood at a lower speed, resulting in a higher concentration of platelets, white blood cells, and stem cells. This rich mixture is then injected into the scalp, offering an advanced and effective hair restoration solution by promoting hair density and thickness.

What's the Difference Between PRP and PRF?

While both PRP and PRF treatments originate from the patient's blood and aim to enhance hair growth, they differ in their preparation and composition. PRP is primarily focused on platelet concentration, whereas PRF includes a broader range of regenerative cells. PRF's slower centrifugation process retains more growth factors. As a fibrin matrix, it can offer a slower release of beneficial properties. 

How Does The Treatment Process Work?

After we complete an initial consultation to confirm your treatment eligibility, we can proceed with the hair restoration treatment process. When you arrive at your appointment, we'll begin by performing a standard blood draw. The step is key to the entire process because we need a blood sample so that we can prepare the platelet-rich fibrin into an injectable form.

Once we have a blood sample, we'll put it in a device that will spin it and use gravitational forces to isolate the growth factors and platelets from the rest of the plasma in the sample. We will then prepare the PRF into an injectable form to administer it into different areas of your scalp as needed to help you achieve healthier hair and improve growth.

Administering The Injections

Before we administer the injectable, we can apply a topical numbing cream to your skin so that you don't feel any discomfort during the treatment. The injection process is quick, and the injectable has a very small, thin needle, so you don't need to worry about discomfort.

We'll administer the necessary amount of PRF into various areas of the scalp per your treatment plan. We use a special multi-injector technique to accelerate the treatment and make it more comfortable for the patient. Once inserted below the skin's surface, the platelet-rich fibrin will slowly release growth factors into the area to stimulate hair growth by improving follicle health and quality.

What Are the Benefits of PRP/PRF Hair Restoration? 

Has Substances Taken From Your Own Body

Using your own biological material minimizes the risk of reactions to the treatment. If you have not had success with medication, or you want to find a more natural method, PRP and PRF treatments can offer another option.

Comes With Minimal Downtime

These treatments are known for their minimal downtime. Most patients don't have to wait at all to go back to their normal activities. We will give you a few guidelines for how to care for your scalp and hair properly after the treatment.

Can Provide Both Enhanced Hair Growth and Thickness

PRP and PRF can be a hair-thinning treatment for women and men, offering both enhanced hair growth and increased hair thickness regardless of whether the hair loss is occurring in specific areas or there is generalized thinning. 

Offers Long-Term Results and Maintenance

Patients can experience long-term results with ongoing maintenance treatments. However, treatments are spread apart enough so that you can easily fit them into a busy schedule. If you are looking for a convenient option that is also a sustainable and long-lasting choice, PRF and PRP injections could be right for you.

Is Suitable for Different Types of Hair Loss

PRP and PRF therapies are versatile and suitable for various types of hair restoration, including:

  • Androgenetic Alopecia
  • Stress-related Hair Loss
  • Thinning Hair due to Hormonal Changes
  • Pattern Hair Loss

FAQs About Our Hair Restoration Treatments 

What Can I Expect During My Hair Restoration Treatment?

During a hair restoration treatment, expect a comfortable process involving the collection and processing of your blood, followed by scalp injections. These injections can feel like a pinch, but because the needle is so thin, most people do not find it painful. Injections are given across the entire problem area, but the process is fast and will only take an hour or two from start to finish. 

How Long Does It Take to See Results After My Injections?

Results from each thinning-hair treatment can vary, but because of the nature of your body's healing and renewal processes, it can take a couple of months or more to see the results you are looking for. This can often include multiple appointments to help build on and maintain the benefits of the initial treatment.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

You won't see immediate results immediately following your treatment because it will take time for your body to respond to the growth factors and for your hair follicles to heal, awaken, and grow healthier and thicker hair. However, you will see improvements in the appearance and health of your hair within several weeks of your first treatment. You can take weekly progress photos to monitor your results and see tangible evidence of renewed growth.

How Long Will My Results Last?

This treatment is designed to deliver permanent results. Because it's a non-surgical treatment and doesn't involve any risk or cause adverse reactions, you can schedule maintenance treatments after completing your initial treatment plan to promote continuous hair growth and long-lasting results.

Is The Treatment Process Safe?

One of the primary benefits of PRF injections for hair restoration is that they are completely safe. Unlike other hair loss treatments that rely on surgical techniques or chemical products that can cause health risks, this one is completely natural. Our primary ingredient to renew your scalp and promote hair growth comes from your blood.

You cannot be allergic to your blood, so you can rest assured that not only is the entire treatment process safe and non-surgical, but you won't have to worry about a lengthy recovery, social downtime, or significant discomfort. You can schedule your treatments confidently, knowing you're investing in a regenerative treatment that naturally restores healthier-looking hair.

What Can It Treat?

Our hair restoration treatments can meet the needs of men and women who want to restore healthy, fuller, and thicker hair. We can design treatment plans to address hair loss, bald patches, thinning, or reduced-quality hair. Whether you've lost a significant amount of hair or noticed changes in your hair's appearance and the health of your scalp, we can design a treatment plan to help you reach your goals.

Am I A Good Candidate?

So many factors can contribute to hair loss, including aging, genetics, hormones, medication side effects, and more. Once we meet with you to discuss your concerns, treatment goals, and the primary cause of your hair loss, we can design your treatment plan accordingly. Most patients qualify for treatment since the process is natural and uses the growth factors in your blood to restore healthy hair.

Can PRP and PRF Be Used With Other Treatments?

Yes, PRP and PRF can often complement other hair restoration methods. It is important to communicate the goals and concerns that you have with your doctor so that the right treatments can be chosen for you.

How Should I Care for My Hair After My Session?

Post-treatment care is an important part of hair-thinning solutions. Gentle handling of the hair, avoiding harsh chemicals, and using nourishing hair products can help keep your scalp and hair healthy. You should also follow any specific aftercare instructions given to you by your provider to maximize the treatment's effects.
