What Is PRP Hair?
PRP hair is injecting a platelet rich plasma to scalp. This platelet rich plasma stimulates hair roots. This way, weak and short hair roots can grow stronger. Platelet rich plasma required for PRP treatment is obtained from patient’s blood. Blood is separated into three parts with a special centrifuge device. When blood is separated, platelet poor plasma and serum part of the blood are discarded. Only platelet rich plasms part is necessary for this treatment. After that, this plasma is injected to scalp with a special device that has micro needles.
