PRF Hair Restoration
PRF, Platelet-Rich Fibrin, is a concentrate of patient’s own cells (platelets, white blood cells and mesenchymal stem cells), used as an alternative to synthetic solutions. Here at Derm Clinic MD, we offer three different types of PRF Treatments for patients in Atlanta, Decatur, Midtown, Buckhead, Roswell, Dunwoody, Cumming, Milton, Alpharetta and Gainesville:
- Injectable PRF treatments: facial rejuvenation, neck rejuvenation, tear trough PRF therapy
- PRF integration with MicroNeedling – this is also known as the famous Kim Kardashian vampire facial
- PRF for hair stimulation/growth in patients who have had previous hair transplants to maintain hair growth and keep the follicles healthy, and also in patients suffering from thinning hair that is not due to a treatable cause (such as iron deficiency, stress, and thyroid disease)
Hair Stimulation Therapy – PRF – Platelet-Rich Fibrin
Men and women in Atlanta, Decatur, Roswell, Milton, Midtown, Alpharetta, Gainesville, Peachtree City, and Buckhead can suffer from hair loss which is completely normal and part of the aging process. Numerous other factors can influence the rate that hair loss occurs: genetic predispositions, alopecia areata, iron deficiency hair loss, male pattern hair loss, and severe stress. Hair restoration with PRF is a natural procedure to help maintain hair growth and prevent hair loss. It is also a great alternative for Atlanta, GA patients who do not want surgery, or for those patients who have undergone hair transplant and need to maintain the transplanted hairs.
What is PRF treatment?
Patients like the idea of using their own cells instead of a synthetic alternative in their quest for a younger and fresher look.
PRF is obtained by drawing the patient’s own blood and serum is separated from blood by a centrifuge. Our PRF system contains more platelets per mcL, it also has leukocytes (WBC), & mesenchymal stem cells, and a fibrin matrix! During the PRF process, no anticoagulant is used,in our centrifuge, which helps keep the product in the most natural state. The patient’s scalp will be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream to make the treatment less painful. The serum is isolated and strategically injected into the scalp either with micro needling or direct injections in areas where hair loss or thinning has occurred. Immediately after the procedure, the patient can immediately go back to normal daily activities.
The hair follicles rejuvenated with PRF will begin to grow new hair. The hair will strengthen and become thicker. Results can be seen within three to six months because hair growth is a slower process.
The process is not recommended for everybody, and your doctor will determine whether it may be right for you. Results may vary among patients based on the body’s natural response to PRP, which will not be the same for all patients and cannot be predicted. Dr. Payman will create the optimal treatment plan and review your goals and expectations with you prior to the procedure. The procedure in Atlanta, GA involves no downtime, and takes approximately 30 minutes.
How many PRF treatments do I need?
PRF treatments are usually every 6-8 weeks for a minimum of 3 treatments. Usually a maintenance annual treatment regimen is advised.
How much does PRF treatment cost?
A patient typically spends between $600-$900 per treatment, depending on the results desired. We offer PRF packages to maximize your cost benefits and reduce your cost per session, and also to ensure full treatment planning occurs, as 3 treatment minimums in the first year are advised. After the first 3 treatments, we advise 1-2 treatments annual to maintain hair growth.
