WHAT IS IT?
Plasma Rich Platelets, or PRP, is an advanced treatment which physicians use to help repair damaged or injured tissues in the body. In this treatment, your body's own platelets are used to restore hair.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This minimally-invasive procedure helps initiate your system's regenerative process by harvesting the growth factors that platelets are known to contain. Because you're using your body's own natural process, there is virtually no chance of rejection or allergic reaction. The result of the treatment is natural stimulation of growth factors moving towards the treated area. The actual treatment can be completed within an hour.
There are no known side effects of PRP, although you may occasionally experience minor swelling or pain near the injection points for a short period of time.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
PRP can be used in most individuals, even minors with parental/guardian approval.
