What Is PRP?
Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that repair damaged blood vessels and stop bleeding after injuries.
They are virtual powerhouses, rich in growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle stem cells to divide and thicken the miniature hairs.
Platelet rich plasma is a concentrated form of your own platelets, obtained from your blood. It is delivered right at the hair root to the stem cells of the hair in the process of miniaturization.
In combination with medical treatment in the form of lotions or foams and oral medications including dietary supplements, PRP treatments boosts re-growth and restores much more hair than was thought possible before its usage.
