What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin?
Platelet-Rich Fibrin Hair Restoration uses platelets and white blood cells from your own blood to stimulate cell repair and growth on your scalp.
First, a blood sample is taken from the patient’s body. A device called a centrifuge spins the blood to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood.
The blood is spun at a low speed, so it doesn’t separate the blood cells completely. This allows some of the white blood cells, stem cell, and fibrin to remain in the platelet-rich layer. This becomes the PRF solution.
The PRF solution is injected into the scalp, focusing on the area where baldness appears or hair follicles are thinner. The whole process of injecting the solution takes about 30 minutes in total.
This whole process might sound a little scary, but it’s very similar to getting a blood test and a flu shot at a doctor’s office.
PRF For Skin
Unlike topical anti-aging creams, PRF boosts collagen production and strengthens skin cells. Platelet-rich Fibrin is used to increase the volume of soft tissues present in the skin by increasing collagen and elastin production. This slows down the appearance of aging and helps bring tired-looking skin back to life.PRF can help our skin retain its youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Don’t laser over a tattoo. You do run the risk of tattoo damage if you’re removing hair in a tattooed area. Lasers can be attracted to the pigment and potentially reduce the color in your tattoo.
To avoid these potential side effects, have your doctor perform a patch test before embarking on your laser hair removal series. This should be free, and it’s used to best determine which laser is fit for your skin. When you have your treatments, make sure the doctor is on-site or in the room to oversee any nurse or an assistant’s technique.
