PRF – A new hair restoration technique!

Like many people who take their good health and youth for granted, great hair is also one of those things which are valued once they’re gone. Male pattern baldness and thinning of hair is natural and happens to almost everyone eventually.

However, there are now technologies that help with combating thin hair, or receding hairlines. Besides, if hair gives you a confidence boost, then go for hair restoration.

hair lossWhat is hair restoration? Is it different from a hair transplant?

Hair restoration is a new, non-surgical and effective treatment for hair loss both in men and women. Hair restoration using PRF includes injecting growth factors directly into the hair follicles. The growth factors injected stimulate the regeneration and healing of dead follicles. Unlike hair transplant, no cuts are made and you don’t have to be put under. 

What is the best hair restoration procedure?

PRF is one of the best techniques to get a head full of hair back in no time! PRF is short for Platelet-Rich Fibrin – a type of growth factor. The mechanism of action of this growth factor is similar to the wound healing process. The PRF growth factor not only stimulates the healing of dead follicles but it also allows them to regenerate quickly. By giving a new life to the follicles it promotes the regrowth of hair. 

How is PRF performed?

PRF is a non-surgical procedure and you don’t have to go under the knife like in transplants. The growth factor i.e. PRF is obtained from your own blood. The process of acquiring the growth factor from your blood is very similar to drawing blood for some blood work. Once the provider has collected your blood, they will separate the growth factor from it using a special technique called centrifuge.

On the day of the procedure, your scalp will be cleaned using an alcohol swab. This is followed by the application of numbing cream to avoid any discomfort. Your provider will then complete the procedure by injecting the separated serum directly into the swab. Only a trained individual would know how to inject the serum in the right places and at Luminare, you don’t have to worry about a thing. 

Sometimes the procedure is combined with another treatment called microneedling. Microneedling also works on a similar principle and allows the body to naturally heal the follicles.

The results of the treatment can be seen immediately within a few days after the treatment. New hair will not only be abundant but thicker and stronger as well.

Is hair restoration using PRF safe?

Hair restoration using PRF doesn’t include any incisions, use of anesthesia or plucking out the skin of your scalp. Being a non-surgical procedure, it has little to no recovery time at all. The procedure is safe when performed by trained and licensed professionals. You might experience some redness and swelling at the site of injection but that’s pretty normal given the fact that you’ll grow enormous amounts of hair soon.
