PRF Hair Loss & Skin Treatment

How PRF Hair Loss Treatments Work

PRF hair loss treatments use your own blood to help stimulate growth for thinning hair and other common hair conditions.

It uses stem cells, fibrin and growth factors contained within your blood in a targeted way to help cell regeneration and promote the healing and regeneration of hair follicles. PRF is considered second generation to PRP. The advantages of PRF is that it can continue to release more growth factors over time which means that it can continue to work and stimulate hair follicles & hair growth for you even when the treatment is completed.

PRF differs from PRP in a few ways:

  •  No anticoagulant or additives! By using specific tubes for PRF there is no anticoagulant in the tube that the blood is collected, the plasma actually forms a platelet and white blood cell-rich fibrin scaffold once injected into the treatment area. The fibrin clot can allow for a much slower and longer release of the growth factors and cytokines – in other words, PRF treatment can continue to release more growth factors over time, even after your treatment is completed. 
  • PRF can also stimulate faster healing than PRP.
  • The blood is spun using a specific centrifuge at a lower speed so that the layers of the blood don’t separate as distinctly. This leaves more stem cells, fibrin and white blood cells in the plasma, which can add to its healing power.
  • The lower spin speed also causes less damage to the blood cells, giving us many more viable cells for the treatment.
  • The concentration of platelets in PRF treatments can be much higher than PRP. Each PRF treatment can contain up to 10x platelet concentration.

PRF Hair Treatment for Women

It is a misconception that only men experience hair loss. Around 40% of women experience hair thinning or loss by age 50. Women can experience genetic hair loss, hormonal hair loss and stress-related hair loss. Around 40% of women experience hair thinning or loss by age 50. PRF can be an effective treatment for female hair loss and thinning. 

The earlier you seek treatment, the more effective it can be. Appointments last between 45 minutes to an hour, are relatively painless, require no surgery or invasive procedures and minimal recovery time.

PRF Hair Treatment for Men

PRF hair treatments can tackle the majority of conditions experienced by men. That includes male pattern baldness, stress-related hair loss, hair thinning and chronic conditions that result in hair loss.

PRF is considered the second generation to PRP. With PRF there is no anticoagulant in the tube that the blood is collected, the plasma actually forms a platelet and white blood cell-rich fibrin scaffold once injected into the treatment area. The fibrin clot can allow for a much slower and longer release of the growth factors and cytokines – in other words, PRF treatment can continue to release more growth factors over time, even after your treatment is completed.

The treatment is fast, with minimal pain and requires no recovery time. It’s also non-invasive, non-surgical and requires no pharmaceuticals!

Your PRF Hair Loss Treatment Appointment

Appointments should last between 45-60 minutes and will leave no sign. They are easy to fit into a busy schedule, including dinner hour!

How does all this work in practice? What does a PRF hair loss treatment look and feel like?

  • PRF tubes & tube holder/cooler are stored in a fridge at 4 degrees. 
  • We withdraw a small amount of blood, using equipment specifically designed for PRF treatments. 
  • The PRF tube is then placed into a tube holder and cooler for 60 seconds. By cooling the blood, this can result in 20-50% more PRF liquid to be used to reintroduced into the areas where there is thinning or hair loss concerns.
  • We immediately place that blood into a centrifuge designed for PRF treatments to separate the different elements of blood. The PRF tubes are spun at an exact 700rpm for 5 minutes. 
  • PRF is then carefully injected into the areas of concerns where there is hair loss and thinning. These fine injections are in conjunction with micro-needling the scalp where there is hair loss and thinning.  
  • We also provide optional LLLT therapy for 10 minutes which can increase blood flow to scalp, increase nutrient delivered to hair follicles, reduce the chances of inflammation and help promote healing.

Once complete, there is no signs of treatment being performed and you can go about your day like normal, however, do not exercise or shower for at least 4 hours. 

It’s rare to experience discomfort or experience inflammation. If this happens, please contact us immediately on 0472 647 011.

PRF Hair Loss Treatment FAQs

This can depend on your overall health and genetics, but on average, patients can begin noticing a positive response from PRF between 2-3 months after treatment.
Everyone is different and will have a different experience with PRF treatments, but on average, you should see less hair loss and a decrease in thinning first and then hair regrowth after.

PRF is considered the second generation to PRP where platelets and WBC form a fibrin matrix (scaffold) that can localise growth factors and increase their concentration by 10x. PRF is a popular treatment for hair loss & skin rejuvenation in the US. We are excited to be the first clinic in Australia to introduce PRF and see the results for women and men experiencing hair loss or thinning.

The effects of PRF hair loss treatment can last anywhere between 9-12 months. Much will depend on the cause of your hair loss, how advanced your hair loss is, your overall health, stress levels, wellbeing and genetic factors. But, on average, the effects should last up to a year.

The number of PRF treatments is individual, however, as a general rule, we tend to recommend a series of 6 PRF treatments spaced 3 weeks apart.
Once that initial treatment is complete, we sometimes recommend a top up treatment every 6-9 months to help maintain results.

The vast majority of patients we have treated walk away with minimal signs they have had a PRF treatment. Normally a patient can experience slight discomfort and/or redness. However, there is a small chance of experiencing infection or inflammation of the scalp. If this occurs, please contact us immediately on 0472 647 011.
