Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) Scalp Injections
Sephyl ® PRFM
Sephyl ® PRFM is a simple, no downtime series of treatments to help people with thinning hair using their own platelets. The Sephyl ® PRFMsystem allows for prolonged release of platelet growth factors in the scalp which stimulates stem cells, prolongs dermal papillae cell survival, and increases angiogenesis. These factors combine to prolong the Anlagen phase of hair growth and shorten the catagen (resting) phase. The result is increased hair thickness and hair follicle survival.
Sephyl ® PRFM is designed for those individuals who have some thinning of hair on the scalp and is not recommended for complete balding.
It takes about 3-6 months after the final injection to see that final result and it varies from person to person as some people may need a second series for optimal results. The protocol is a series of 3 treatments spaced about 6 weeks apart.
