Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is an ideal option for many men and women who are dealing with thinning hair. Over a series of treatments, PRP/PRF can achieve fuller, more robust, healthier hair.
Recovery and results
The majority of PRP/PRF hair restoration patients are able to return to their regular activities after treatment. Common side effects include tenderness, swelling, bleeding, bruising, itching, and/or scabs in the treated area. Some patients also experience a headache. In approximately three months, patients will see more hair growth, with hair that is denser and even sometimes darker.
Final results are visible at 6-12 months. It’s important for those who are considering PRP/PRF treatments to be aware that results may not be permanent. The reason for this is that hair loss is caused by many different things, and the root of your unique hair loss may not respond in a long-term way to the PRP or PRF procedure.
