Hair Loss Treatment
What is Platelet-rich fibrin or PRF?
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a natural dermal filler solution that is additive-free and chemical free. It is derived from the body’s own resources and is free from additives. PRF is sourced from your own blood and contains high concentration of fibrin and white blood cells. This leverages your own natural healing properties of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells to help regenerate and stimulate hair growth.
How does Platelet-rich fibrin help with hair loss and restoration?
PRF treatment works well for both men and women, especially those in early stages of hair loss. PRF uses your own blood, which is then separated into a biomaterial using a centrifuge. This solution, which has high concentrations of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells, is then injected into your scalp in areas of thinning hair. This procedure is able to awaken dormant hair follicles that spend more time in the dormant phase as you age. At first you will notice that you have less hair thinning and shedding, and after the first two to three months, patients generally see hair growth. The optimal time for this procedure is when patients are experiencing early signs of hair thinning.
Why choose an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for PRF hair loss treatment?
When deciding who to visit for cosmetic procedures, many people narrow their search to only cosmetic surgeons. Choosing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon means you can be assured that they have speciality training and extensive knowledge of the facial muscles, facial structure, and teeth to assure the best possible results. Thanks to their surgical background, oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMSs) are uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic procedures involving the functional and aesthetic aspects of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws. Extensive education and training in surgical procedures involving skin, muscle, bone and cartilage finely attune the oral and maxillofacial surgeon to the need for harmony between facial appearance and function.
