Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP)
Plasma Rich Platelet infusion has been used in sport medicine and pain management to promote nerve regeneration as well collagen growth. PRP injection also can promote hair growth, improve the sign of facial aging such as wrinkles, decreased tone and facial volume. Platelet is the smallest particle of the human blood, responsible for controlling bleeding. Every platelet carries millions of granules containing numerous proteins, such as platelet delivered growth factors, transforming growth factors, insulin-like growth factor, epidermal growth factor and other cell growth and repair promoting factors. PRP is your natural way to renew your skin and regrow your hair.
For hair restoration, we recommend 3 treatments 6-8 weeks apart to achieve maximum benefit.
