The Hair Booster Shot – PRF for Hair Loss

Hair loss in women. Hair loss in men. We treat both.

From male pattern baldness to menopausal and hormone-related hair thinning, you can restore your confidence (and your hair) with The Hair Booster Shot. PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) has been used for decades in dentistry and orthopedics. The platelets in our blood contain proteins and growth factors that awaken dormant hair follicles and improve hair growth.

You don't have to fret over thinning hair.

Among the many different reports on the regenerative effects of PRP and PRF, hair restoration is among the most well studied and proven. Worldwide research shows consistent average increases in number of hairs per square cm of about 30-35%, and the same percent increase in diameter of the hair shaft itself. Translation: more hair, thicker hair, healthier hair. (On the other hand, studies also show about 25% of patients don't seem to respond to the treatment, and completely bald areas don't do well either.)

At RegenCen, we are proud to have been offering surgery-free PRP and PRF regenerative treatments for the past 5 years.

PRF treats hair loss due to:

  • "Male pattern" hair loss in both men and women
  • Aging
  • Stress
  • Hormonal changes including menopause and perimenopause
  • Chemotherapy
  • Post-anesthesia

The Hair Booster Shot
procedure step-by-step

BEFORE TREATMENT

There is very little preparation needed for Hair Booster injections.

You will have a consultation with one of our providers, either in our Petoskey or Traverse City office, to assess your hair loss and areas of concerns and make sure the treatment is right for you. Because PRF awakens dormant hair follicles, it works best in the early stages of hair loss.

DAY OF TREATMENT

Come to the office well-hydrated (it makes it easier to draw your blood). When you arrive, we draw your blood, and while the blood is being spun and PRF is being prepared, we may inject a local anesthetic, which makes the procedure virtually pain-free.

Once the PRF is ready, it is injected into the areas on your scalp where your hair is thinning the most.

You can leave immediately after the procedure. We will schedule additional follow-up treatments, since best results are seen in a series of 3 treatments spaced 3-6 weeks apart.

AFTER TREATMENT

There are no other restrictions. You can wash and style your hair as usual, and most patients report feeling results starting after the 2nd treatment. Studies show an average 30% increase in hair density and hair shaft thickness after 6 months.
