Dr. Jennifer Levine is the premiere provider of regenerative hair restoration treatments, including the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment for hair loss, offering an advanced approach with Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) therapy, as well as exosome therapy. 

What is the Difference Between PRP and PRFM?

While both PRP and PRFM utilize the healing potential of platelets, PRFM represents an advanced form of therapy. The key distinction lies in the fibrin matrix used in PRFM, which acts as a scaffold for the platelets, allowing for a longer release of growth factors. This sustained release promotes a more robust healing process, making PRFM particularly effective for stimulating hair growth and improving scalp health. The Selphyl system enhances this process by producing a purer platelet concentrate, minimizing contaminants and maximizing efficacy.

How does PRP / PRFM for hair restoration work?

PRP / PRFM treatment uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets. PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which stimulates hair follicles. It can also be used for facial rejuvenation to thicken and tighten skin, smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.

The Selphyl Difference: PRFM Purity and Precision

What sets PRFM apart in the realm of regenerative therapies is the utilization of the Selphyl system. This advanced processing technique further refines the platelet concentrate, significantly reducing contaminants. The Selphyl system precisely creates the fibrin matrix integral to PRFM, ensuring a purer, more potent formulation. This meticulous approach maximizes the efficacy of the treatment, delivering a superior solution for hair restoration that leverages the prolonged activity of growth factors to achieve remarkable results.

Enhancing Hair Restoration with Exosomes.

Always striving to bring our patients the best treatments, we now include a cutting edge new injectable treatment for hair loss – Exosomes. Further improving the hair restoration results of PRP / PRFM, exosomes are intracellular packets of growth factors isolated from mesenchymal stem cells. These growth factors are the active components of PRP / PRFM, offering maximum potency and effectiveness. Exosome therapy is performed in tandem with PRP / PRFM, layering the exosomes on the scalp after the injections. This can speed up the hair restoration process, typically requiring only 1-2 treatments to see a desired result, with results visible in 3-5 weeks.

What is the PRP / PRFM Treatment like?

PRP / PRFM is completely natural as it uses the body’s own plasma. Here is how the treatment will go:

One of our experienced medical staff takes a small sample of your blood and places it in a centrifuge to isolate plasma and platelets from red cells. This protein-rich plasma is what helps stimulate collagen production when infused into the scalp. The red cells are not used in the treatment.

While the plasma is being separated and prepared, our team will apply a topical numbing cream to your scalp.

We then inject the plasma into the affected area on the scalp to make sure it travels deep into the skin, where its collagen-boosting can take place.

Once the treatment is completed, you may feel some superficial discomfort in the treated area, which resolve within the following day.


Is PRP / PRFM like the Vampire Facial treatment?

That’s right! Kourtney’s sister, Kim Kardashian, made the treatment popular in 2013. She used it for facial rejuvenation. In 2019, Kourtney Kardashian shared her use of PRP to combat hair loss.

How long before I see new hair growth from PRP / PRFM treatment?

While individual responses vary, patients typically begin to notice new hair growth around 3 to 6 months after treatment. PRFM treatments, like PRP, promote hair follicles’ activation and renewal over time, with continuous improvement observed with subsequent treatments​​​​.

How many treatments are needed?

For PRP hair restoration with Exosomes, treatments are recommended once a month for 3 months with a maintenance treatment every 6 months following. This can depend on the body’s unique response.

Can PRP / PRFM be used with other hair loss treatments?

Yes, PRP and by extension PRFM, due to their unique mechanisms of action, can be effectively combined with other hair loss treatments, such as DHT blockers, Rogaine, or laser therapy. This combination often results in synergistic effects, enhancing overall treatment outcomes​​.

How do exosomes work in hair restoration?

Exosomes are micro-vesicles released from cells, playing a crucial role in cell communication and regenerative processes. In hair restoration, exosomes deliver growth factors and proteins to the scalp, stimulating hair follicle regeneration and promoting hair growth. They can be used in both early and later stages of hair loss and are effective for various conditions, including alopecia areata.

What benefits can I expect from exosome hair restoration?

Patients can expect to see fuller, thicker, and healthier hair, with improvements also noted in hair growth around scars from previous hair transplantation procedures. Exosome therapy offers natural hair restoration with long-lasting results, enhancing self-confidence​​.

How can I improve hair growth at home?

To optimize your hair growth results, Dr. Levine might recommend Nutrafol supplements alongside PRFM / PRP and exosome therapy.

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can result from hereditary factors, aging, hormonal imbalances, including postpartum, as well as conditions like Alopecia areata.

Does rapid weight loss from Ozempic cause hair loss?

Rapid weight loss can stress the body, potentially leading to a temporary increase in hair shedding, known as telogen effluvium. This condition is usually temporary, with hair typically regrowing once the body adjusts to the new weight. Hair restoration treatments, and supplements like Nutrafol, can help speed up the process.
