What happens during a PRP/PRF hair treatment?
PRP/PRF hair restoration treatments usually take about one hour. When you arrive for your appointment, blood will be drawn from your arm and added into a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood, which separates the red blood cells from the platelets. Once this is done, the platelets will be extracted using a syringe. If you’re having platelet-rich fibrin done, the centrifuge will spin more slowly—which will still separate the blood from the platelets, but includes the fibrin and stem cells as well.
Your scalp will be washed, and a numbing agent may be applied to help with any discomfort. Dr. Tansavatdi will inject the syringe full of platelets directly into specifically targeted areas of the scalp, right at the hair follicles to get optimal results.
