What is PRP and PRF Therapy?
At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, our team is pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to stimulate your scalp and help with hair growth. Because of the natural and exciting results, PRP and PRF therapy are popular and innovative cosmetic procedures in the aesthetic industry. These treatments use your plasma to stimulate blood circulation to the scalp, which can promote hair growth. To further enhance your results, we can combine PRP or PRF therapy with microneedling. Located near the Chicago suburbs, please call JEM Medspa in Orland Park or Elmhurst, IL to schedule a private consultation. Our team is happy to discuss the benefits of PRP or PRF and how they can improve your hair.
Differences Between PRP And PRF
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) – Platelet-rich plasma is an effective therapy and can help reduce hair loss. During the procedure, we place your blood in a centrifuge machine, which spins at a higher rate compared to the PRF serum. With PRP, we use an anticoagulant that causes the growth factors to release within a few hours after the procedure. These growth factors help with hair growth.
Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF) – Platelet-rich fibrin is also an excellent treatment option for hair loss. Compared to PRP, it does not use anticoagulant, and instead, it uses white blood cell-rich fibrin. Also, PRF does not spin as fast in the centrifuge machine so we can collect additional components, including white blood cells and fibrin. Fibrin is the natural clotting material in the blood, and it helps slow the release of growth factors when injected into the scalp.
Both of these treatments stimulate blood circulation and provide additional nourishment to the scalp.

PRP and PRF therapies are great treatment options for men and women who want to improve their hair and reduce the appearance of bald spots. Often, these treatments tend to work best for patients who are experiencing the early stages of hair loss. This treatment helps patients who suffer from different forms of alopecia. During your consultation, please let us know if you have certain conditions, such as anemia or blood disorders. This will help us determine if you can safely receive PRP or PRF therapy.
Our Platelet-Rich Plasma and Fibrin Technique
At the beginning of your appointment, we will draw a small amount of blood from your arm and place it in a centrifuge machine. Typically, we take about four tablespoons or one vial worth of blood. After 15 minutes, the components of your blood separate and then we can inject the PRP or PRF into the treatment area. We will place your concentrated plasma into a sterile syringe and administer it into the predetermined locations. This process takes about five minutes, but it varies from patient to patient. For both PRP and PRF, we use the same treatment technique. However, when in the vials are in the centrifuge machine, PRF is spun at a slower speed so some of the white blood cells and stem cells remain. These components, in addition to the growth factors, help with healing and promote hair growth.
What to Expect
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) naturally promotes blood circulation and deeply nourishes the hair follicles. Since the treatment utilizes your blood, you have no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. After the procedure, patients can use a cold compress on the treatment areas to minimize any discomfort and swelling. These symptoms are normal and should go away in a week or two. To maintain your results, we recommend receiving treatments in 4 – 6-week intervals.
