What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
PRP is an acronym for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is a sample of a patient’s blood that is centrifuged, spun down and then special components of the blood are extracted. We extract the special growth factors and stem cells. These extracted components rejuvenate and restore human tissue. PRP treatments work on hair, skin and the vagina. PRP for hair growth is a successful and popular procedure.
