PRF THERAPY IN RIVERSIDE, CA
What Is PRF Therapy?
Hair loss is a common concern for many adults as they age. The loss of hair can be brought on by age, genetics, hormones, health conditions, or over-styling and is often a source of embarrassment and low self-confidence. Thanks to advances in the hair restoration industry, new treatments have been developed to help slow, stop, and even reverse hair loss. One of these treatments is PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) therapy. This nonsurgical procedure provides promising results for men and women who have experienced balding and hair thinning. Our skilled team in Riverside, CA offers this revolutionary treatment for men and women who want to take control of their hair loss.

Am I a Good Candidate for PRF Hair Regrowth Therapy?
Any man or woman suffering from balding is potentially an excellent candidate for platelet-rich fibrin therapy, but patients with early hair loss usually yield the most favorable results. PRF is best suited for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair loss that mostly occurs along the top part of the head. For women, this could look like a broadening part with average hair thickness on the backside of the scalp. Patients with sections of “weak quality” hair growth on the scalp with normally functioning hair follicles typically experience the best results with PRF hair regrowth therapy.
What Can I Expect from PRF Therapy?
The PRF therapy process is minimally invasive and can usually be finished in about an hour. The procedure begins with some of your blood being drawn. The blood is spun in a centrifuge at a high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of your blood. A local anesthetic is then applied to your scalp to reduce any discomfort you may feel during the procedure. From there, the PRF solution will be injected into the treatment areas of your head. Microneedling can be performed to create micro-injuries in the epidermis, which allows the PRF to seep deep into the skin. While there is no downtime after your procedure, you may experience some redness, minor swelling, and tenderness where your injections were made. Typically, most of our patients begin to see their results after 4 – 6 months with continued improvements for about a year after the first treatment. It’s important to note that PRF cannot grow new hair follicles where you are already bald but is used to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles. We suggest maintenance treatments every nine months or so to maintain your fuller, healthier, longer hair.
