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 growth and restoration, skin rejuvenation, 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.

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

Before Treatment

Fortunately, there’s very little prep work involved. Just book an introductory consultation at one of our locations, either at the Petoskey or Traverse City office, 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.
