PRF: The Next Generation of Hair Growth
Dr. Scott Sanderson
Once you’ve noticed that you are losing hair, it’s easy to start making assumptions: I’m going bald; I’ll never have a full head of hair again; etc.
If this sounds like you, in all likelihood, you have wondered what you can do to stop your hair from thinning. Perhaps you have already tried at-home remedies for hair loss — shampoos, oils, changing up your hairbrushes, silk pillowcases — with the same poor results. We truly understand how frustrating and panic-inducing alopecia can be.
But there is no need to panic! We’re pleased to say that none of your assumptions have to be true. There is a certified way to slow down or stop hair thinning — and maybe even grow back some hair you thought was gone forever. Meet PRF: The Next Generation of Hair Growth Programs.
For you to understand the science behind Palet Rich Fibrin, let’s first discuss Elite’s hair re-growth program. It’s crucial for you to know how our program works and which steps we take to customize each treatment to suit a specific client’s needs.
The central component of our treatment: a PRF injection.
Your blood is made up of three components: red blood cells, white blood cells, and plasma. Plasma plays a vital role in our bodies: it makes up 55% of our blood, supports cell function, carries electrolytes to our muscles, and supplies critical proteins and growth factors to heal wounds and regrow tissues.
To create the injections used in PRF treatments, we:
- Take a blood sample
- Centrifuge it to remove the red blood cells and isolate the platelet-rich plasma proteins
- Combine these proteins with fibrin, another protein which causes blood clots
The resulting substance is rich with growth factors that, when injected into the scalp, encourages hair growth and regeneration on a cellular level.
How is PRF better than PRP?
PRF and PRP are both composed of platelet-rich plasma. However, while PRP injections are very liquidy and remain at the injection site to work for about a day or two, PRF injections actually turn into a gel and stay put at the injection site for about 10 to 12 days, according to the studies. During this period of time, the gel continuously releases its growth factors and stimulates your hair to grow.
Most clients begin their treatment with 4-5 injections per month, but results are usually visible after just the third injection!
