Hair Restoration Q & A
What is hair restoration?
The term hair restoration is often associated with hair transplants or hair plugs. At Donna Bella Laser MedSpa, hair restoration is performed using a solution prepared from a small portion of your own blood.
This approach, known as platelet-rich fibrin, is a great option for men and women who want noticeable results from a natural, minimally invasive treatment option.
What is platelet-rich fibrin?
You may have heard of platelet-rich plasma, which is a solution created by drawing a small sample of blood, spinning it at a high rate of speed, then isolating the platelets and re-introducing them into the cleared plasma.
This process results in a powerful solution that speeds healing, improves circulation, and triggers new cell production. Platelet-rich fibrin uses the same process, but yields a solution that is rich in stem cells, fibrin, and white blood cells. It’s often considered the next generation in PRP treatments.
How does PRF help with hair restoration?
The process begins with a simple blood draw, similar to the process of having bloodwork performed. The sample is then processed in-house to create the PRF solution.
Platelet-rich fibrin is administered via a series of injections directly into your scalp. The concentrated growth factors are released slowly over time, stimulating your body to create new cells.
Circulation in the treated area improves, giving your hair roots the nourishment needed to thrive. Inflammation is reduced, paving the way for new growth and slowing fallout of existing hair.
Are PRF hair restoration injections painful?
The needles used for PRF hair restoration injections are incredibly thin, and the injections don’t extend far into your scalp. For most men and women, treatments are easy to tolerate.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, it can take dozens of injections to see results, but the process is swift. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your scalp, but there is no discomfort from the solution itself.
Because PRF is created from your own cells, your body recognizes it and does not launch a strong response. There is no downtime after sessions, and you can return to your normal daily routines right away.
It takes time for your body to respond to PRF treatments and create new hair cells. Taking photos of the treatment area before your sessions and at regular intervals can help you track your progress.
The slow, natural return of your own healthy hair is one of the reasons this hair restoration approach is gaining popularity. The results are gradual and natural-looking, and it won’t ever look like you took drastic measures to thicken your hair.
