PRP hair regeneration

Another study confirmed the use of PRP with micro needling and Minoxidil, increased hair count at week 12 from 22 to 91. Multiple treatments may be needed depending on each case and the amount of hair loss. Tiny microinjections of PRP will be administered to the scalp. Then with a microneedle roller the entire area with being rolled. The leftover PRP will be smeared on the affected area. You will be given multiple hair stimulating products and tools for in between treatments to use at home with instructions.
