What is PRF Hair Restoration?

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) represents the next generation of non-surgical Hair Restoration. You may be familiar with its predecessor, PRP (platelet-rich plasma), but know that PRF is a similar but advanced, improved, and natural solution for individuals seeking hair rejuvenation. This PRF procedure harnesses the healing properties of the stem cells within a patient’s blood to stimulate hair growth and improve hair density. PRF is rich in growth factors and platelets that play a key role in tissue regeneration. In the context of hair restoration, PRF is strategically injected into the scalp, promoting hair follicle health, increasing blood circulation, and stimulating the growth of thicker, healthier hair.

As a minimally invasive and autologous (using the patient’s own substances) approach, PRF Hair Restoration offers a promising option for individuals looking to address hair thinning or early-stage hair loss. Dr. Blake Raggio, a skilled practitioner, tailors the procedure to the unique needs of each patient, providing a natural and effective solution for hair rejuvenation.

  • No Allergies or Rejections: Since PRF is sourced from the patient’s blood, there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions or rejection, enhancing the safety profile of the procedure.

What’s the first step to scheduling a PRF Hair Restoration?

What are the first steps?

Embarking on your PRF Hair Restoration journey with Dr. Blake Raggio begins with a comprehensive consultation. During this initial step, Dr. Raggio conducts a thorough assessment of the health of your hair, discusses your aesthetic goals, and evaluates your medical history. Depending on your health history, Dr. Raggio may also enlist the help of your primary care doctor or dermatologist to rule out any organic or medical causes of your hair loss. 

This collaborative process allows him to determine your candidacy for PRF Hair Restoration and design a personalized treatment plan to suit your unique needs. The PRF Hair Restoration consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask questions, discuss expectations, and gain a clear understanding of the hair restoration procedure.

What to expect on the day of PRF Hair Restoration procedure

On the day of your PRF Hair Restoration with Dr. Blake Raggio, you can anticipate a streamlined and patient-focused process that prioritizes your comfort. The procedure begins with a simple blood extraction, similar to a routine blood draw from the arm.

The collected blood is then processed using a centrifuge to isolate the Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) – a concentrated form of platelets and growth factors. Following the preparation of the PRF, Dr. Raggio strategically administers injections into targeted areas of the scalp and hairline, focusing on regions experiencing hair thinning or loss. The PRF works to stimulate dormant hair follicles and enhance blood circulation, promoting a healthier head of hair.

Throughout the PRF procedure, Dr. Raggio’s precise techniques aim to ensure even distribution and optimal absorption of the PRF, contributing to natural-looking and sustainable results. The minimally invasive nature of the PRF Hair Restoration procedure allows for a comfortable experience, with most patients reporting minimal discomfort. In fact, the procedure only takes 1-2 minutes to perform, and is very well tolerated with the option to incorporate oral sedation and/or nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) to further optimize your comfort.

After the PRF injections, there is typically no need for downtime, and you can resume your daily activities promptly. Dr. Raggio will provide postoperative instructions and recommendations to support the healing process and optimize the effectiveness of the PRF in stimulating hair rejuvenation. Follow-up appointments, including the proposed injection series (4 treatments total to include one every month for 4 months) will be scheduled accordingly. After the initial series of 4 injections, you will progress to a maintenance program wherein you’ll receive 1 injection every 6 months to optimize and maintain your hair growth gains.

PRF Hair Restoration Recovery

The recovery process following PRF Hair Restoration is typically straightforward and well-tolerated. Immediately after the procedure, some patients may experience mild redness or tenderness at the injection sites, which is normal and usually subsides within a day or two. A mild headache can also occur, though is well-controlled with non-prescription pain medications such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen.

Dr. Blake Raggio provides associated post-op instructions to optimize the healing process and maximize the benefits of your PRF treatment.  While PRF Hair Restoration boasts minimal downtime, it’s essential to follow the recommended aftercare guidelines to support the healing of the scalp and encourage the regenerative effects of the PRF. Patients can typically resume their regular activities, including work and social engagements, soon after the procedure. Patients are advised to avoid vigorous scalp massages, exposure to direct sunlight, and strenuous physical activities for up to 48 hours following the procedure.

Over the coming months, you’ll begin to notice the gradual effects of PRF, with an improvement in hair thickness and overall hair health. Dr. Raggio will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure you are on track to achieve your optimal outcome. The simplicity and effectiveness of PRF Hair Restoration make it a convenient and patient-friendly option for those seeking a natural approach to hair rejuvenation.

    Dr. Raggio is the absolute best! He listens and is very precise with his injections. I am extremely happy with the results I have gotten with him. He does not push any services on you, either. I have uploaded two pictures to show the difference. I get Botox and lip filler.

    I went to Dr Reggio for my eyelids. They were folding over. I was scared to have the surgery but the right eye was bothering me. So I decided to have the surgery and this Doctor is such a delight and kind-hearted. I am very, very happy with the way my surgery turned out. I would highly recommend Dr. Raggio to anyone!
