What is iPRF hair treatment?

How iPRF helps with hair loss?
The iPRF treatment intensifies the reproduction and functioning of cells, thus having a gentle and gradual yet long lasting and accumulative effect.
Fibrin, which is an important part of the iPRF treatment, functions as a matrix trapping the platelets and hence controls the release of growth factors. The release rate of growth factors into the target tissue is important in order for tissue receptors to respond over a prolonged period post treatment.
iPRF treatment is a multi-step treatment of the scalp, helps reverse hair loss in men and women and is carried out under the effect of local anesthesia to minimize pain. The treatment is known to reset the hair follicles and reduce the impact of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) specially in patients who suffer from Androgenic Alopecia; pattern hair loss.

- The patient’s blood is drawn, usually the same amount as needed for lab work typically.
- The blood is then placed in a PRF centrifuge which operates at a lower speed to keep the white blood cells and stem cells together along with the blood platelets and plasma
- The main focus here lies at harvesting platelet rich fibrin, which is enriched with nutrient and proteins that stimulate the stem cell in the hair follicles which will stimulate hair growth as well as thicken existing hair
- Post this step, the PRF is ready of injection
- Next, the patient’s scalp is washed followed by application of topical anesthesia to reduce any discomfort
- The PRF is injected into your scalp, in the targeted areas

One might experience short-term redness, swelling and minor discomfort in the treated area but this will last only for a few hours. The patient can resume work and other normal activities the very next day.

The goal with conducting an iPRF treatment is two-fold. Firstly, the hair follicles need to stop transitioning for longer periods into the dormant phase of the hair re-growth cycle.
Secondly, the follicles need to be rendered with growth factors, stem cells and platelets in order to revive them and get the follicles to return to the growth phase.
