IPRF Hair Loss Treatment

Home Dermatology IPRF Hair Loss Treatment

Hair loss has proven to be a prolonged problem for men and women globally. While there are several causes of hair loss, the treatments available to help regrow hair are also numerous. However, with the advancement in medical sciences, dermatologists and trichologists have experimented with I-PRF for hair loss treatment. Read on to learn about I-PRF, its uses, and how it is different from PRP.

What is I-PRF?

Injectable Platelet-Rich Fibrin (I-PRF) is a minimally invasive advanced form of traditional PRP therapy that focuses on harnessing the body’s own healing and growth mechanisms. During the treatment, the doctor uses the patient’s own blood to help stimulate hair growth. The blood is taken and then processed to separate and concentrate the platelets, stem cells, leukocytes, and other beneficial growth factors, which are then re-injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.

It is a treatment that can be used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments. While it is an innovative treatment, your doctor will decide which treatment is right for you, considering your needs and preferences.

What are the Benefits of I-PRF Treatment for Hair Loss? 

I-PRF is a new and advanced treatment that helps you to: 

  • Slow down hair loss and promote new growth.
  • Treat thinning hair resulting from telogen effluvium or iron deficiency.
  • Strengthen hair without any allergic reaction, as the materials used in the treatment come from your own body.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for i-PRF Treatment for Hair Loss? 

You are considered an ideal candidate if you are experiencing hair thinning or hair loss problems. However, it is also necessary to meet the following criteria to achieve the best possible results from the treatment:

  • Your hair loss should be in the initial or intermediate stage, as I-PRF can help slow down the process and promote new growth.
  • Your scalp should have enough hair for the treatment to be effective.
  • You need to be in overall good health and not suffer from chronic diseases like diabetes and heart diseases.
  • While I-PRF treatment can help slow down hair loss and promote new growth, it may not be able to fully restore all lost hair. Therefore, it is important to have realistic expectations from the treatment.
  • You should not have any blood-related diseases, skin issues on the scalp, or certain other health conditions.

I-PRF Procedure for Hair Loss Treatment

Before the procedure, it is advised that you consult with a board-certified dermatologist or trichologist and undergo the I-PRF treatment for hair loss only if they approve it. Also, make sure to follow the pre-procedure care for I-PRF treatment as suggested by your doctors.

On the day of the procedure, after arriving at the clinic, you can expect the following steps:

Blood collection

Firstly, your healthcare provider will extract blood (20-60ml) from your body using a syringe and store it in a specialised I-PRF tube. 

Centrifuging Blood 

The collected blood will be spun slowly in an I-PRF centrifuge. During the spinning, the centrifugal force pushes all the platelets, stem cells, fibrin, and leukocytes to the top of the tube, while red blood cells, which are heavier, settle at the bottom.

Injecting I-PRF 

 After the spinning, the elements collected from the top of the tube are injected into the targeted spots on the scalp.

What is the Recovery and Downtime for I-PRF?

I-PRF is a day treatment, meaning you can go to the clinic and leave on the same day. After the treatment, you can resume your usual activities, although you may experience slight redness and minor inflammation for a couple of days at the treated sites.

What is the Difference between PRF and PRP?

Injectable Platelet-Rich Fibrin (I-PRF) is an advancement over traditional PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy. While both PRP and I-PRF focus on stimulating cell growth, there are some key differences.

PRF, or Platelet-Rich Fibrin, is a second-generation PRP where blood is spun at a lower speed, resulting in less damage to blood cells and preserving a higher quantity of growth factors and cells that promote healing and growth. This includes platelets, leukocytes (white blood cells), cytokines, and circulating stem cells. PRF forms a fibrin clot that allows for a sustained release of growth factors over time.

What is PRF used for? 

PRF is used for wound healing, promoting skin rejuvenation, improving collagen and elastin in the skin, and assisting in strengthening hair and promoting its growth.

How many I-PRF sessions are required for hair growth?

The number of I-PRF sessions required for hair growth can vary. It is best to consult with a medical professional to determine the appropriate number of sessions based on individual circumstances.

Is I-PRF better than PRP?

Both PRF and PRP aim to speed up the healing process, but the comparative effectiveness of I-PRF and PRP can vary depending on treatment goals and individual responses.

What is the Cost of I-PRF in Dubai?

The starting cost of I-PRF treatment in Dubai is AED 1500 per session. However, the final cost may vary depending on the number of sessions required to achieve desired results, the geographical location of the clinic, the doctor’s fee, and other factors. It is important to contact the clinic directly for the most accurate pricing information.
