PRF has been used aesthetically, all over the world, in a variety of ways.

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. A high-quality PRF system can concentrate platelets 6-10 times greater than what is usual in blood.  The platelets contain growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor, epidermal growth factor (EGF), fibroblast growth factor, and connective tissue growth factor. Blood is drawn from the patient and is then placed in a centrifuge to spin at high speeds. This allows the platelet-rich fibrin to separate from the blood. The PRF is then injected into the affected area. Targeted delivery of these growth factors to injured tissues can accelerate and promote the healing cascade within your body.

PRF for hair growth. PRF contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth by increasing blood circulation and supplying needed nutrients. PRF is injected on the scalp or it can be rubbed on the scalp after a dermaroller (skin needling device with multiple little surgical needles) treatment is used in the areas which suffer from hair loss. The treatment not only promotes hair growth but strengthens the hair follicles as well.  Those with thinning hair, and people with androgenetic alopecia (hair loss at the top of the scalp and a receding hairline particularly along the temples-male patterned baldness), women with male pattern alopecia can all benefit from these treatments.
