Hair Restoration with Acell
IN CHESTERFIELD, MO
PRF is superior for hair restoration.
PRF requires a simply blood draw and then spun in a special centrifuge. The heavier cells in the blood, the stem cells and white blood cells to collect in the bottom part of the test tube, while the platelets and plasma collect in the upper part. The platelets and plasma are collected and injected into the areas of thinning hair.
Research is showing that even higher concentrations of platelets, as well as a concentration of white blood cells and stem cells is a more effective mix. That’s what PRF delivers. To create PRF the blood is spun at a lower speed so that the layers of the blood do not separate out as distinctly. This allows some of the white blood cells and stem cells to remain within the platelet layer, instead of being separated. This gives PRF more healing factors than PRP. Plus, the lower centrifuge speed causes less trauma with the individual cells involved.
PRF does not contain any additives, whereas an anticoagulant is used during the processing of the blood when making PRP. This creates a spongy fibrin matrix that activates the platelets that acts as a scaffolding to keep the growth factors and stem cell. 3 sessions are typically recommended, 1 month apart. 1 treatment a year is recommended to maintain results.
