Microneedling creates micro-injuries in the skin to elicit your body's response and produce collagen and elastin, add volume to the skin, heal acne scars, minimize pores, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PRP is an excellent add-on to this! The PRP serum is absorbed into your skin through those injuries, shortening recovery time while also speeding along cellular turnover and collagen production. Microneedling with PRP is also ideal for many skin types!
Anyone, male or female, suffering from thinning, weak, and brittle hair or active hair loss can benefit from hair restoration with PRP/PRF. Patients in the early stages of hair loss can experience significant benefits from PRP/PRF injections. The PRP/PRF is injected into the scalp to reverse the depreciation of hair follicles and promote thicker, denser, and healthier hair strands. Your provider will work with you to determine if you are a good candidate for PRP or PRF hair restoration!
PRP stands for "platelet-rich plasma". PRF, on the other hand, stands for "platelet-rich fibrin". These are both obtained by drawing your blood. PRP involves additives and chemicals and is spun down in a different way than PRF, which remains completely natural and unmodified. While both treatments offer incredible results, PRF delivers about 8-10 times more growth hormones than found in the blood, while PRP delivers about 2-5 times the amount. PRP and PRF release natural growth factors to accelerate healing, promote healthy collagen structures, and stimulate blood flow in the treatment area.
01. What is the difference between PRP + PRF?
For hair loss, it is recommended to begin with three sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. After this, maintenance injections may be needed every 6 months.
For injection, this is dependent on the area of concern.
02. how many treatments are needed?
For hair loss, you may see results from injections in 4 weeks. With facial injections, benefits are seen almost instantly from the volumization of the injected PRP/PRF and will continue to improve over the following weeks. Finally, after procedures such as microneedling or Morpheus8, you will see instant improvement in inflammation and redness with the addition of PRP or PRF.
03. When will I see results?
hile PRP and PRF have many uses in sports and regenerative medicine, at S+A we use PRP and PRF as injectables for both skin rejuvenation and anti-aging as well as for hair restoration, with microneedling, and with Morpheus8.
