Hair Restoration with PRP
PRP therapy is used in hair restoration for natural looking results. PRP is Platelet-Rich Plasma – you may ask how we obtain your PRP? Before your treatment begins, we draw your blood, from the blood we draw, we are able to separate your blood from your PRP. The Platelet-Rich Plasma is then injected into the scalp with a thin needle. Our blood plasma (PRP) contains active growth factors which promotes hair growth. Helping to restore one’s confidence, the end result is a fuller, healthier looking head of hair.
