PRP/PRF for Hair Growth in Los Gatos, CA

PRP/PRF for Hair Growth in Los Gatos, CA

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) for hair growth are innovative treatments Dr. Bitter offers at Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology in Los Gatos, CA. These treatments involve using the patient’s blood to stimulate hair growth. In PRP, blood is drawn and centrifuged to separate the plasma rich in platelets and growth factors injected into the scalp. Conversely, PRF uses the whole blood to create a gel-like substance containing plasma and fibrin, providing a scaffold for new cell growth. These treatments are particularly effective for treating alopecia androgenetica (male and female pattern hair loss) and can also address hair thinning due to various causes.

The Treatment

These treatments suit individuals experiencing hair thinning or loss and seeking a non-surgical solution. There is minimal discomfort after the procedure, and there is no significant downtime. Results typically become noticeable after a few weeks, with continued improvement. The duration of effects varies, but regular maintenance sessions can help prolong the benefits. To explore the potential of PRP/PRF treatments for your hair restoration needs, schedule an appointment with Dr. Bitter at Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology.
