What are PRP injections, and how are they used for hair thinning and loss?
PRP injections are a type of treatment that uses the patient’s own blood to help promote hair growth. Platelets, which are a type of cell found in the blood, contain high levels of proteins that helps to stimulate new hair growth.

To perform the hair restoration treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then injected into the scalp. The PRP is then removed from the blood with the use of a centrifuge. Then, the PRP is reinjected into the scalp where hair thinning and loss have occurred to stimulate hair follicle growth.
