What Should I expect during a PRP/PRF Treatment?
The first step of hair restoration with PRP/PRF is drawing a small amount of blood from the arm. The blood is spun in a centrifuge. This separates out the PRP. During the centrifuge process to separate out PRF, the blood is spun more slowly, keeping the cells more intact.
- For hair restoration: Once the PRP/PRF is separated out, a local anesthetic is applied to your scalp. This ensures you are comfortable during the treatment. We will inject the areas of your scalp where the hair is thinning with tiny injections of PRP/PRF.
- For under-eye rejuvenation: The PRP is used for injection under the eyes, resolving dark under-eye circles and helping to achieve a smooth line from the eyes to the cheekbones, and refreshing the appearance.
- For skin revitalization: PRF is used with the skin pen microneedling device to address specific skin concerns and refresh and renew the skin. PRF can also be injected into the skin to help rejuvenate its appearance.
Regardless of how it’s used, whether for hair restoration, under-eye treatments, or skin rejuvenation, you can expect the procedure to take about an hour or less. There may be some redness and swelling at the injection site. However, these side effects will fade quickly.
