Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that repair damaged blood vessels and stop bleeding after injuries. They are virtual powerhouses, rich in growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle stem cells to divide and thicken the miniature hairs. Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated form of your own platelets, obtained from your blood. It is delivered to the stem cells of the hair by the process of miniaturization at the hair root. In combination with medical treatment in the form of lotions or foams and oral medications including dietary supplements, PRP treatments boost re-growth and restore more hair than was thought possible before its usage.
