Restore Your Confidence
Hair restoration isn't just for a full head of hair; it can also help hair grow back in places like your chest, eyebrows, face, and genital area. During your consultation, your doctor will look at the area or areas where you are losing hair and make a treatment plan just for you. Getting your hair back can be an important first step toward making yourself look and feel better.
Advanced Hair Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has been demonstrated to enhance healing when injected into the treated areas. Platelet-rich plasma is a component of your blood that contains numerous growth factors that promote new tissue formation and re-growth of existing but diminished tissues. According to researchers, when platelet-rich plasma is separated from blood and injected into damaged tissues, tendons, or the scalp, new growth occurs. Your medical provider will review your hair loss concerns and develop a customized treatment plan with PRP or PRF injections to reach your desired outcome.
With Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF), the blood is spun at a slower speed so that its layers don't separate as precisely. This keeps some of the stem cells and white blood cells in the platelet layer instead of separating them. This means that PRF offers more ways to heal than PRP. Also, the lower speed of the centrifuge does less damage to the individual cells. PRF takes the fibrinogen that is already in your blood, and thrombin turns it into fibrin, which is the first part of a blood clot. This makes a spongy fibrin matrix that activates the platelets and acts as a scaffolding to keep the growth factors and stem cells where they are injected and stop them from spreading.
PRF offers higher concentrations with 10x as many platelets as normal blood. Due to the spongy fibrin matrix, the PRF also releases the numerous growth factors in it slowly over a longer period of time spanning up to two weeks, and therefore its effects are more pronounced compared to PRP which released the growth factors immediately after injection.

Both men and women can benefit from PRP/PRF, especially those in the early stages of hair loss. It also works for women with traction alopecia, a type of hair loss caused by hairstyles that pull the hair too much and stop it from growing back.
It is also a good option for people whose hair is getting thinner but who don't want to take medication every day or get a hair transplant. Ideal candidates for hair restoration include men and women seeking a solution to their hair loss. Candidates for hair restoration should be in good health overall, nonsmokers or willing to quit, and free of active infections, which can cause difficulties. Importantly, smoking limits blood circulation. If you are a smoker, you must quit at least six weeks before your treatment and refrain from smoking following surgery. For new hair growth to regenerate, all of your free blood flow is required to promote healing and regeneration.
PRP/PRF Hair Restoration Solutions in Lubbock
Before your procedure, there will be a blood draw. Approximately the same volume of blood is extracted as is required for regular laboratory testing. Your blood is then placed in our centrifuge, which runs at the proper speeds to obtain PRP or PRF and prepare it for injection.
Your scalp is then cleansed, and a local anesthetic is applied to alleviate any discomfort. Additionally, we photograph the treatment regions for comparisons between before and after. Your provider next injects the PRP/PRF into the areas of your scalp where your hair is thinning. These are shallow injections administered approximately every half inch. Your scalp is wiped down, and the treatment is complete. You can resume your normal activities or employment immediately.
A New Approach for Hair Loss
Either topical numbing lidocaine or a local anesthetic may be administered. We also offer Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen (laughing gas) upon request, which is very effective for pain control and anxiety relief. You may experience some redness on your scalp and should protect it. However, the majority of patients return to their daily activities after treatment. After your third and final treatment, additional maintenance treatments are advised. However, your provider will discuss any necessary follow-up treatments with you. In a few weeks to a few months, you will notice new hair growth.
Restore Your Look with PRP/PRF Solutions
A fantastic option for you if you're losing your hair is PRP/PRF hair restoration at GLO & SPA-RKLE. However, the growth factors, white blood cells, stem cells, and platelets found in PRP/PRF work best when they stimulate dormant hair follicles.
PRP hair restoration performs best when hair loss begins early, known as androgenic alopecia. Learn more about your PRP and PRF hair restoration options by scheduling your consultation today.
You will receive a topical numbing cream, a local anesthetic or nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture (laughing gas), but the majority of patients report only experiencing mild discomfort during the recovery process, which can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications.
Rarely do hair restoration procedures result in complications, but some of the most typical adverse reactions include bleeding, infection, numbness, and itching.
PRP/PRF hair restoration is typically not covered by insurance. Consult your insurance provider for your coverage possibilities. GLO & SPA-RKLE provides convenient payment and financing options.
