What is PRP/PRFM?

PRP/PRFM is a regenerative substance created from the patient’s blood. In this innovative treatment, your provider draws a small amount of blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate platelets. They then inject these platelets, rich in growth factors, back into the scalp to stimulate hair growth or apply to the skin with microneedling for rejuvenating benefits. The entire PRP/PRFM therapy session takes approximately one hour.

Your PRP/PRFM Therapy Experience

Your Consultation

Your PRP/PRFM therapy journey for hair restoration begins with a personalized consultation tailored just for you. Your dedicated aesthetic specialist delves into your medical history, discussing your specific concerns to create a comprehensive understanding of the areas you’d like to address with PRP/PRFM therapy. Open communication about your hair restoration goals is crucial, shaping the foundation for a precisely tailored treatment plan.

Your Procedure

Step 1: Blood Draw

The first step involves a blood draw to collect a small sample. We then process the sample in a centrifuge, which spins the blood vigorously to isolate the concentrated PRP/PRFM that will be used for your hair restoration treatment. This initial phase ensures the extraction of valuable growth factors and cytokines from your blood, essential for stimulating hair follicles.

Step 2: Comfort First

Prioritizing your comfort is paramount before your PRP/PRFM therapy for hair loss begins. We apply a numbing agent to the treatment area, ensuring a comfortable and relaxed experience. This initial step is also an opportunity to address any questions or concerns, ensuring you feel at ease throughout the hair restoration process.

Step 3: Strategic Injections

We utilize advanced techniques to target specific areas on the scalp with PRP/PRFM, stimulating dormant hair follicles and promoting thicker, fuller hair. This tailored solution aligns seamlessly with your unique hair restoration needs.

Step 3: Post-Treatment Guidance

After your PRP/PRFM therapy for hair loss, we provide immediate aftercare instructions. This includes recommendations for activities to avoid and reminders not to touch the treated areas on the scalp. We also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and promptly address any questions or concerns that may arise during your hair restoration journey.

Your Results

PRP/PRFM therapy results become noticeable over several months after each treatment. While some individuals may observe gradual hair thickness and volume improvements within a few weeks, the maximum results often emerge over a more extended period, typically around six months. 

Our team typically recommends three treatments spaced four weeks apart for maximum results. We may also advise combining your treatment with the Auxo Hair Cap, Propecia, FinPlus, or exosomes to maintain and enhance your new head of hair. Carolina Facial Plastics also offers NeoGraft™ hair transplants for permanent results.
