Hair Restoration, Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Hair Restoration with PRF Dallas TX
Hair loss is a problem for many and can be caused by numerous factors. Over the years, various strategies have been developed to assist those with hair loss. Numerous techniques in hair regeneration and hair restoration. One of these recent techniques is the discovery of platelet-derived growth factors such as PRF or Platelet-Rich Fibrin for reverse hair loss
What is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
As an advanced form of PRP (platelet rich plasma), Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is used for hair regeneration and restoration and for treating reverse hair loss. It is simply the extraction of platelets from the patient’s own blood, which is then injected back into the patient.
Unlike the other platelet concentrates, PRF involves only the centrifugation of natural blood without any additives. Our blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. When the blood is centrifuged, it will produce PRF.
How Does PRF Work To Reverse Hair Loss
Healthy hair roots or hair follicles are responsible for healthy hair growth. Since hair follicles survive on the nutrition they are supplied with from the blood, introducing fresh platelets by administering PRF in the area of damaged hair follicles, amplifies the body’s natural healing and growth mechanisms in the skin thereby creating a total effect for years. Thereafter, you can always come in for us to repeat the procedure if you like.
How The Hair Regrowth Procedure Is Performed
Some amount of blood is drawn from your arm (depending on the size of the area being treated) and then centrifuged in a unique way to activate the fibrin and concentrate more growth factors, white blood cells, and stem cells. It is later separated from the other blood components that are not needed. The PRF is later withdrawn from the vials and injected into the area of hair loss requiring rejuvenation.
Why PRF Is Better Than PRP For Treating Hair Loss
Unlike PRP, PRF is 100% natural and free from additives.
In PRF, the fibrin acts as scaffolding. This helps to keep the growth factors and stem cells in the area they are injected into and not allow them to diffuse away in the area they are not needed. As a result, there is a release of more growth factors for a longer period of time. On the other hand, PRP doesn't contain fibrin, white blood cells, or even stem cells which aid in tissue regeneration.
PRF also contains greater amounts of growth factors, and stem cells, while PRP doesn't have stem cells. A higher concentration of growth factors and stem cells will lead to hair regeneration and restoration and improved skin when compared with PRP.
