What is PRF?
Persona Med Spa offers solutions for both men and women who are experiencing hair loss or thinning. PRF and exosome treatments are some of the most effective options without surgery. These treatments are designed to stimulate hair growth and improve the overall health and appearance of your hair.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) therapy involves taking a sample of your own blood and separating the platelets from the rest of the blood. Platelets contain growth factors and cytokines that can stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. The PRF is then injected into the scalp, stimulating hair growth and improvement in the health of the hair.
What are Exosomes?
Exosomes are tiny particles that are naturally produced by stem cells in the body. They contain growth factors, cytokines, mRNA, and other molecules that can promote healing and regeneration. Exosome therapy for hair loss involves injecting exosomes into the scalp, where they signal resting hair follicles to enter into the active growth phase of the hair cycle. Overall, this will help to create thicker, fuller hair. Results are typically noticed two months post-treatment.
What’s the difference between PRP and PRF?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has long been recognized as an effective treatment for hair loss. It also involves drawing blood into a tube with anticoagulant, spinning it in a centrifuge, and extracting the platelets from the rest of the drawn sample.
PRF is a newer generation of hair loss treatment than PRP. PRF also involves drawing a blood sample which is spun at a lower speed in the centrifuge and doesn’t involve an anticoagulant or any other additives. The lower spinning speed allows more cytokines, growth factors, and stem cells to be extracted along with the plasma, and preserves the integrity of the blood sample more effectively. Simply put, the PRF contains stem cells and PRP does not. PRF has, overall, a greater concentration of substances that can help address hair loss, and a fibrin matrix that allows the growth factors and stem cells to stay where they’re injected instead of dissipating into surrounding tissues as quickly.
Which is right for me?
Your provider can determine whether PRF or Exosomes are the right treatment for your particular situation. Both can help with hair loss, and both are injected into the scalp. Depending on the age and overall health of the client and nature of the hair loss, one solution may be preferable to the other.
