Natural Hair Growth, Restored

One of the most widely known causes of hair loss is androgenic alopecia (AGA), an inherited sensitivity to androgens. Still, various other causes of hair loss include autoimmune diseases, nutritional deficiencies, and stress. Many patients use oral medications and topical therapies to prevent and slow additional hair loss in the early stages. These hair loss therapies can be effective, but there are various side effects, and, of course, once you begin, you need to use them daily to continue to see any results. With PRP/PRF, cells from your blood are separated and reinjected into the scalp to help hair growth. This is accomplished through the body's healing mechanisms by activating various growth factors. The benefits of using PRP or PRF to promote healthier, thicker hair include:

  • It is harvested from your own body, so there is no chance of an adverse reaction
  • It promotes natural healing, helping to strengthen blood flow and cell growth in the treatment areas
  • It helps existing hair follicles to strengthen and grow
  • As opposed to daily use, this therapy for hair restoration requires only a series of one-time treatments with benefits that can last up to two years

Is PRF Hair Restoration Treatment Right for Me?

PRF hair restoration is the most advanced treatment available, improving on the already remarkable results that could be obtained with PRP. PRF is suitable for most people experiencing hair loss and is especially beneficial for those with androgenic alopecia. PRF can also treat other types of hair loss, such as alopecia areata, scarring alopecia, and telogen effluvium. However, it may not be suitable for those with certain medical conditions or who take certain medications. It is essential to consult a doctor before undergoing any kind of treatment for hair loss.

Your Initial Consultation

Dr. Will Thompson knows that considering hair restoration in Denver is a highly personal choice and wants you to feel secure in the process going forward. This is why an initial consultation about PRP/PRF is recommended at his Denver office to make sure you feel informed, listened to, and optimistic about the journey ahead.

The Day of Your Procedure

Your PRF hair restoration process begins with taking a small blood sample, which is then processed in a lab to separate the platelets and other components. These platelets are then injected or applied topically after microneedling into the scalp, where they interact with the hair follicles and activate various growth factors. PRF is a great hair treatment for many issues, not just hair restoration. When combined with our other options, it can help you maintain healthier hair.

Recovery and Results

The recovery time from PRF for hair loss varies depending on the individual and the severity of their hair loss. Generally, patients can expect to see results within a few weeks after the initial treatment. The full effects of PRF may take up to six months to become visible, as it takes time for new hair growth to appear. During this period, patients should avoid any activities that could cause further damage to their scalp or interfere with the healing process. It is important to follow all post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Thompson in order to ensure optimal results. This includes avoiding direct sunlight, using a mild shampoo and conditioner, and avoiding any strenuous activity that could cause further damage or irritation. Additionally, it is important to keep up with regular treatments in order to maintain the results achieved with PRF therapy. With proper care and maintenance, patients can enjoy healthier hair for many years after undergoing PRP treatment for hair loss.

Risks Associated with PRF

  • PRF is a relatively new hair treatment and its long-term effects are still unknown.
  • There is a risk of infection if the injection site is not properly sterilized.
  • The procedure can be painful, depending on the patient’s pain tolerance.
  • There may be some swelling or bruising at the injection site.
  • The results of PRF treatments depend on a variety of factors, so there is no guarantee that they will work the same for everyone.
