Hair loss can take many forms, and happen at almost any stage in life. When men and women experience hair loss it can have a negative impact on self-esteem and self-confidence.

Hair shedding, hair thinning, bald spots, and pattern baldness can be traumatic at any age, the good news is with medical advances in non-surgical hair restoration methods like PRP and PRF therapy for hair regrowth it is possible to restore hair loss without surgery. 

There is growing interest in new hair restoration methods like PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) therapy because it is a promising remedy for various hair loss conditions that both men and women experience. Find out how Este Medical UK PRF treatment for hair loss can help you regain your hair and your confidence! 

What Is PRF Treatment? 

PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin: naturally healing PRF is found in your blood, and is rich in nourishing platelet blood cells and bioactive proteins (i.e., growth factors). 

During a platelet-rich fibrin treatment, a small amount of blood is taken, usually from your arm, just like when you donate blood; the blood is then centrifuged to isolate your blood’s platelet-rich fibrin, then your own PRF is injected into your scalp in the areas where there is hair loss. It is considered a simple and pain-free experience.  

PRP/PRF injections are similar; the main difference between PRP and PRF is how the blood is processed. With PRP injections an anticoagulant is added, PRF injections do not involve this step. Essentially you should consider PRF as the next generation of PRP — that said, both treatments are considered highly effective at restoring hair growth and improving scalp health in preparation for a hair transplant

Does PRF Work For Hair Loss Work? 

Yes, PRF treatment for hair loss has a high success rate. PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) therapy helps to promote healthy hair growth naturally as well as stimulate blood circulation in the scalp which creates optimal conditions for hair regrowth and hair repair. 

When PRF (re: i-PRF) is injected into the scalp it stimulates and reactivates dormant or weakened hair follicles to produce thicker and healthier hair. In the case of PRF treatment after a hair transplant, PRF injections help trigger a more robust growth cycle for newly transplanted hair follicles. 

The fibrin in PRF help to hold or keep essential growth factors in the injection area of the scalp (i.e., the treatment area), fibrin is a natural binder that keeps nutrients and bioactive proteins where they can do the most good. 

The combination of PRF blood cells (e.g., platelets) and fibrin (e.g., blood proteins) promote blood circulation, cellular healing (see alopecia), and trigger hair follicles into active growth, all of which counter hair loss.

Just like PRP hair loss treatment, PRF hair loss therapy has many benefits, including: 

  • Natural hair growth results

PRF vs. PRP: Which is Better for Hair Loss? 

PRF and PRP are excellent hair loss treatments for women and men, but it is useful to go over how they are similar and what makes them a little different. Both PRF and PRP aid in cellular regeneration to repair hair follicles, help to reverse hair loss, and grow thicker hair.

Both treatments use essential ingredients extracted from your own blood, which makes the treatment safe, and reduces the risk of adverse reactions. 

The main difference with PRF hair injections (i-PRF) is that no anticoagulant is used during the processing of the blood once it is removed from your body. In general, PRF is considered more effective because it is more advanced than PRP. However, PRP is still a highly effective non-surgical treatment as well. 

There is a strong medical argument that the high fibrin content in i-PRF makes the treatment better at stimulating targeted hair growth.   

Additionally, PRF is apparently active for a longer period of time once injected into the scalp compared to PRP. In this case, PRF would be considered more effective.   

The best way to determine whether PRP or PRF is best suited for your type of hair loss is to have a professional hair loss consultation at an Este UK hair loss clinic near you. Book a free consultation to discover if PRF or PRP is better for you! 

PRF Injections For Hair Loss Explained 

During a PRF procedure blood is drawn from your body, a small amount, which will then be medically spun to isolate the essential platelet-rich fibrin necessary to stimulate hair regrowth and hair health. Once the PRF injection is ready, it will be gently injected into the scalp where you are suffering from hair loss (e.g., hairline, temples, crown, bald spots…). It is a quick and easy procedure that is considered pain-free. 

PRF expected results and recovery time: many clients experience new hair growth as a result of PRF in just a couple of months. There is no significant downtime from having PRP or PRF, so you resume your regular activities immediately.
