PRP Hair Loss Treatment
A new hair-loss treatment is giving hope to millions of people with thinning hair.
The treatment, called Platelet Rich Plasma therapy — or PRP — could help regrow and thicken hair without surgery, drugs or expensive treatments, experts say.
PRP relies on the patient’s own platelets. The patient’s blood is drawn and placed in a machine, where the plasma is separated from the blood and injected directly into that patient’s scalp.
The platelets contain growth factors that stimulate the regrowth and thickening of hair follicles.
