PRF Hair Restoration
Many of our Las Vegas patients come to us for hair restoration. We offer Platelet-rich fibrin or PRF which is a new generation of PRP (platelet rich plasma). Our blood is a mixture of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. When the blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun, it produces PRF. PRF contains white blood cells, platelets, stem cells and fibrin. White blood cells help in tissue regeneration. Platelets contain proteins that increase collagen production and regenerate tissue which consequently enhances hair growth. Fibrin is a protein that acts as a mesh where growth factors attach. Lastly, we have stem cells which are undifferentiated cells. They can be redirected to repair activities when your body needs to develop new tissue for hair growth.
Why is PRF better than PRP?
PRF has no additives and is completely natural, unlike PRP. PRF also has white blood cells, fibrin, and stem cells, which PRP does not contain. The higher concentration of growth factors and the presence of stem cells in PRF makes it suitable for hair regeneration. The fibrin holds the growth elements together and keeps them in the area they are injected into to ensure that growth happens where it is needed the most.
In PRF therapy, blood is drawn from the patient, processed and reinjected into the scalp. Since your blood is used for the process, there is no risk of getting communicable diseases. The risk of developing an allergic reaction is also significantly reduced. Regeneration takes time and after undergoing the procedure, you need to wait for some time for the results to kick in.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Besides genetics, several conditions cause hair loss. You may be able to address hair loss by treating the underlying cause. Some of these conditions include:
- Alopecia areata
- Celiac disease
- Eating disorders
- Lichen planus
- Scalp psoriasis
- Thyroid conditions
If you have any of these conditions, it is wise to consult your doctor and receive treatment. As your health improves, your hair may regenerate.
