PRF Plasma Injections
Conveniently located to serve New York City, Tribeca, and The Upper East Side
PRF (or platelet-rich fibrin) is a highly advanced regenerative therapy that uses your own blood to accelerate the healing process. This cutting-edge treatment harnesses the power of your body’s own natural healing abilities to stimulate hair growth and promote a healthy scalp.
What Are PRF Plasma Injections?
PRF, short for platelet-rich fibrin, is derived from a small sample of the patient’s blood. This mixture combines platelets, white blood cells, stem cells, and plasma, which contain growth factors essential for the body’s regenerative processes.
At Tribeca Medspa, we can use PRF as a topical treatment after aesthetic services like Fraxel, microneedling, and Morpheus8. We can also inject the PRF into the skin, or for hair restoration, into the scalp. This approach reaches the deeper skin layers, imparting the benefits of PRF and enhancing therapeutic outcomes. When strategically injected into areas experiencing hair loss or thinning, PRF can stimulate cellular repair, improve blood flow, and promote the growth of thicker, fuller hair.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRF Plasma Injections for Hair?
PRF is a minimally invasive procedure, which makes most people a great candidate for the treatment! Anyone experiencing hair loss or thinning looking for a safe and effective alternative to traditional hair restoration procedures can benefit from this treatment. Ideal candidates for PRF plasma injections are individuals seeking hair rejuvenation who are not prone to bleeding disorders or have certain medical conditions that may interfere with the procedure. Since PRF is derived from the patient’s blood, there is a reduced risk of allergic reactions. However, a complimentary consultation with one of our expert providers is strongly recommended to determine suitability based on individual health history and goals for treatment.
What Can I Expect During Hair PRF Plasma Injections?
The PRF plasma injection procedure begins with the extraction of a small blood sample from the patient’s arm. This blood is then processed using a slower centrifugation to separate platelets, white blood cells, stem cells, and plasma, from which our providers extract the PRF. Then, this PRF is then injected into the targeted areas of the scalp. You and your provider will work on a treatment plan to decide where the most important areas are for you – they may be all over the scalp, or in a few key areas, depending on the rejuvenation you’re looking to see. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically well-tolerated, with the goal of stimulating the growth of healthier, fuller hair.
What Can I Expect After Hair PRF Plasma Injections?
Recovery from PRF plasma injections involves little to no downtime. Patients can anticipate mild redness, swelling, and possible bruising at the injection sites, which are temporary and generally subside within a few days. Most patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately. You may be asked to avoid washing your hair for a few hours after the treatment to allow optimal integration of the PRF. Gradual improvements in hair thickness, fullness, and new growth will become visible over the following weeks.
What Is the Cost of PRF Plasma Injections?
The cost of PRF plasma injections is contingent upon several variables. These include whether the PRF procedure is conducted as an independent intervention or is integrated with complementary treatments. Additionally, the total price may be influenced by factors such as the volume of blood collected for PRF extraction and the number of injections deemed necessary to achieve the desired therapeutic outcome. The best way to determine your cost is to see one of our master injectors for a complimentary consultation!
