When injected, this product accelerates healing and regeneration. Due to this process, the body’s natural regenerative abilities are concentrated and focused on the problem area.
With IPRF, cells are stimulated to function and reproduce, thus having a gentle, gradual but long-term and cumulative effect. In conjunction with other skin treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers, wrinkle-reducing treatments, or i-PRF treatment, the results are even more impressive. The clinic-based treatment produces virtually no downtime, and it can be used to treat melasma and acne scars, in addition to skin rejuvenation and hair loss.
Hair loss is among the new uses of i-PRF. As part of a multi-step procedure of the scalp involving local anaesthesia, it is used to reverse hair loss in men and women. When used for Androgenetic Alopecia (pattern hair loss), it seems to reset the hair follicles and reduce DHT (dihydrotestosterone) production. The popularity of PRP is also increasing as a treatment mode for Alopecia Areata.
There are three phases to this cycle;
- Exogen (shedding phase)
- Telogen (resting phase)
- Anagen (growth phase)
Should multiple follicles of the hair be in the resting phase of the bodies cycle at the same time the hair can appear to be thinning.
PRP/PRF have been shown to extend the growth phase and increase the amount of blood supply to the hair follicles. This ultimately results in a fuller scalp.
Treatment consists of multiple injections into the scalp with comfort provided by regional anaesthetic blocks.
