Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately three to five times the number of platelets present in normally circulating blood. In addition, it contains platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), and other bioactive proteins that help heal and eventually grow. hair.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a new technique proposed in the field of hair restoration. PRP is a non-surgical alternative solution that can help and help in the fight against hair loss. The PRP can be performed either at the same time as the hair transplant procedure, or as a stand-alone treatment that includes increased hair density and takes about 45 minutes.
