Hair restoration using PRF
What is platelet-rich fibrin?
Platelet-rich fibrin or PRF is a combination of your own platelets and a scaffold of fibrin which releases growth factors over 10 days. These growth factors are important for hair follicle regeneration and growth.
During the treatment, a sample of blood is taken from your arm and placed in a centrifuge. Only the top layer of blood is used which contains a rich concentration of platelets.
These are injected both under the skin and used in combination with microneedling device.
The procedure usually takes one hour to complete.
You will likely experience some minor swelling which usually improves within a few hours.
The most common side effect is bruising. The procedure is considered very safe, with no risk of an allergic reaction.
Please note that treatments are unlikely to be given on the day of consultation to allow you to decide whether this is the right decision for you.
