Thicken Hair and Stimulate Hair Growth
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a new method for the treatment of alopecia. It takes place by injecting insertions of plasma into the scalp; with the objective of stimulating the scalp to support hair growth.
PRP can be used as an individual treatment, in order to fortify the hair follicle, thus ensuring its longevity and potency, but also to reinvigorate dormant hair follicles and stimulate the growth of new hair.
Moreover, PRP can be coupled with any hair transplant procedure, helping partially transected follicles in the donor area; regenerate bristles and also helping the recipient area’s implanted hair follicles prosper. Additionally, it will reduce the formation of scabs, trauma, inflammation and erythema (redness); and help the donor areas dermis and epidermis heal faster.
