PRF Frequently Asked Questions

Both PRF and PRP are platelet concentrates derived from the patient’s own blood, making it a pure, natural form of growth factors for exceptional results in treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, skin tone, skin texture and even hair loss.

PRF is the newest generation of platelet-based products that target tissue damage. During the centrifugal process, the blood is separated into layers that are not as distinct as with PRP, so growth factors, stem cells, and while cells are also collected along with the platelets making PRF more advanced and effective.

PRF offers longer-lasting collagen stimulation benefits, as it releases more growth factors over time. PRP only provides benefits for a day, while PRF continues to work for up to a week because it is more stable.

PRF is effective in stimulating hair restoration, particularly with AGA hair loss (male pattern baldness). The earlier PRF treatment is started, the more effective it is, and the best results are seen in guests that have started experiencing hair loss in the last five years.

Guests are recommended to schedule 6 appointments, 4-6 weeks apart, and the results last for up to six months. Top-up treatments should be booked every 4 months to maintain results.

PRF treatments are often utilized/recommended in conjunction with Neograft patients at Des Moines Plastic Surgery to optimize their results.

Because the treatments use a patient’s own tissues, PRF injections are safe and can be administered alone or used in conjunction with other procedures. The risk of an allergic reaction is much lower than with other injectable medications. The procedure involves a blood draw, so you should make sure you are hydrated and have eaten beforehand to prevent feeling lightheaded. After the procedure, you may experience some soreness and bruising at the injection site.

PRF injections are intended to promote healing or growth, therefore you may not notice an immediate difference after receiving the injections. However, in several weeks or months, the area may begin healing faster or growing more hair than you would have expected if you hadn’t received PRF injections. Results can last as long as 18 months.

PRF injections start at $500 for single-session vial treatments. Depending on your treatment goals, your provider will recommend a series of treatments to optimize best-results.

PRF therapy can be added-on to treatments including microneedling and laser treatments such as MOXI & HALO to optimize recovery. Your aesthetic provider will make best recommendations for this type of treatment based on your unique scenario.

We offer complimentary consultations with our aesthetic injector providers so you can learn more about the treatments you’re interested in and provider can assess and make best recommendations for you.

Before you begin any treatment process, we will review all your questions and concerns to ensure PRF treatments, whether for facial rejuvenation and/or hair loss, is a good fit for you.
