Treating Hair Loss with PRF

Hair loss and thinning can take a toll on self-confidence. Discover how PRF Hair Restoration can help you achieve thicker, fuller hair and regain your confidence.

Understanding PRF Hair Restoration

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Hair Restoration is an advanced treatment designed to address hair thinning and loss by harnessing the body's natural healing capabilities. This non-invasive procedure involves using the patient's own blood components to promote hair growth and enhance hair quality.

How PRF Hair Restoration Works

PRF Hair Restoration involves a series of injections in the targeted areas of the scalp. This process, which takes about 10-20 minutes. Additional exosomes or other growth factors may also be added. The concentrated growth factors from your blood help to "wake up" hair follicles.

Most patients begin to see results within 2-6 months. To enhance the effectiveness of the treatment, doctors may recommend DHT (a “super” testosterone) blockers, iron supplements, or other treatments addressing underlying causes of hair thinning or loss. There is no downtime after the procedure, and most regular activities can be resumed immediately.

What Causes Hair Loss and Thinning?

Several factors can contribute to hair thinning or loss, including:

Hormonal Imbalances

Hormones such as testosterone, DHT, DHEA, and thyroid hormones can be easily assessed with a simple blood test. Depending on the results, supplements, prescriptions, shampoos, or topical solutions may be suggested to help balance hormones.


Cortisol, often known as the “stress hormone,” can convert into testosterone, leading to hair loss. Stress management through supplements or lifestyle changes may be recommended to help curb stress responses and prevent hair loss.

Autoimmune Conditions

Alopecia areata, an autoimmune skin disease, can cause hair loss on the scalp and affects nearly 7 million people in the United States, according to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF). Those with small areas affected by alopecia areata are more likely to experience hair regeneration through PRF treatment.

Are You a Good Candidate?

PRF therapy is suitable for most individuals as it is non-invasive. However, the treatment is more effective during the early stages of hair loss when there are detectable hair follicles. It may not be effective in areas that are completely bald.

General Health Considerations

Candidates for PRF therapy should generally be in good health. Those on blood thinners, heavy smokers, or individuals with excessive alcohol use may not be suitable candidates. Additionally, platelet disorders, infections, and chronic diseases can affect eligibility. It is crucial to provide a comprehensive list of medications, supplements, and herbs during the consultation to ensure the treatment's safety and efficacy.
