What is PRF?

What is PRF?

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is the next generation treatment of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRF is a fibrin matrix that consists of three things: platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells. (PRF is all-natural, and get this: it’s already inside of you!) This special combination is what makes PRF an ideal treatment for hair restoration and growth, skin rejuvenation, sexual health improvement, and wound healing.

From male pattern baldness to menopausal and hormone-related hair thinning, RegenCen can help you restore your confidence and your hair with our PRF Hair Booster Shot. And some of the best parts? The Hair Booster Shot achieves results with no surgery, no downtime, and no side effects since PRF is obtained from your own bloodstream.

Hair loss treatment options at RegenCen

The RegenCen treatment program for thinning hair improves hair follicle density and hair shaft thickness by up to 50%. Combining PRF injections, Revian light cap, topical prescription treatments, hormone replacement and IV Biotin infusions ensure you the best results, regardless of cause.

Hair loss treatments are customized by our providers and may or may not include all of solutions for hair loss. Many women lose hair through during perimenopause and menopause and hormone optimization is a cornerstone treatment to improve hair growth. Some patients simply have genetic predisposition to thinning hair. And many experience hair loss after stress, chemotherapy, sudden weight loss, or illness.

After a medical history and possible hormone optimization, a treatment plan for hair loss is developed. With platelet injections (PRF or PRP for hair loss), patients treat monthly for 3 months, then every 6-12 months to maintain. PRF injections improve hair by about 30% in many medical studies. Already on a hair loss prescription treatment? Want better results from hair transplant? Hair thickness and growth is improved by about 30% as a standalone treatment! Treatments may also include prescription topical medication and an at home Revian cap.


Although both PRF and PRP contain growth factors, there are a few differences between how these two treatments work and how they’re prepared:

  • PRP is spun at a higher speed. To make either PRP or PRF, the blood sample is spun at a high speed so that the heavier components fall to the bottom of the container and the lighter components (e.g. the plasma and platelets) remain at the top. This way, it’s easier to separate the plasma and platelets when it’s time to do so. PRF carries more healing factors than PRP, so to ensure that the individual cells aren’t damaged in the process, PRF is processed at a slower speed.
  • PRF usually has a higher platelet count. Because PRP is spun so quickly, many of the platelets get left out of the final product. Even so, the number of platelets is still much higher when compared to normal, un-spun blood.
  • PRF releases platelets and growth factors slowly. One of the biggest differences between PRP and PRF is the release time. Once injected, PRP releases its platelets and growth factors quickly, while PRF releases the goods slowly.

PRF Treatment for Hair Loss

PRF hair restoration therapy is simple. Before the treatment, the patient’s blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge (see above). Then, the PRF is injected into the patient’s scalp. There’s no downtime and the patient is free to leave immediately after the procedure.

Our PRF Hair Booster Shot treats:

  • “Male pattern” hair loss in both men and women
  • Stress and age-related hair loss or thinning
  • Hormonal hair loss or thinning (including menopausal and perimenopausal hair loss)
  • Chemo-related hair loss or thinning

Curious about the process? Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Before Treatment

Fortunately, there’s very little prep work involved. Just book an introductory consultation at one of our locations, in Petoskey, Traverse City, or Naples, and one of our providers will assess your hair loss and discuss any concerns to ensure the treatment is right for you. PRF works best for patients who are experiencing early stages of hair loss.
