ABOUT PRP THERAPY
PRP therapy uses the components of your own blood to procure the stimulation of hair growth. The platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma and platelets, which play an important role in healing throughout the body. These platelets for this procedure can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate regeneration. To create platelet-rich plasma, clinicians take a blood sample from the patient and place it into a centrifuge. The centrifuge rapidly spins the sample, separating the other components of the blood from the platelets and concentrating them within the plasma.
From there the PRP solution is injected into the target areas and is proven effective in treating pattern baldness, preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth.

Full results may not be visible until 3 to 6 months after your final treatment session. While PRP treatments are proven to be long-lasting, they are not permanent.
