    What is PRP?

    PRP therapy, or Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, is an extremely effective, safe, and rejuvenating treatment that helps promote follicle healing and hair growth. By placing your blood in a centrifuge, we can extract the plasma and inject it back into your body, meaning there is no risk for adverse effects as your body is used to the solution. The plasma contains growth factors and supports cell growth within the blood.

    PRP was created through plasma isolation and a concentration on the specialized effects of using a centrifuge to extract the valuable, healing plasma. By injecting PRP into damaged tissues on the scalp, your skin stimulates new cell growth, healing, and improves the appearance of thinning or lost hair by making it thicker and healthier.
