PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma.” Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses the best rich plasma your blood has to offer because it heals injuries faster, encourages growth factors, and also increases levels of collagen and stem cells—these are naturally produced in the body to keep you looking young and fresh. In this case, those growth factors are used to help regrow thinning hair.
Hair transplantation takes hair from an area of your scalp with healthy growth and moves them to be implanted in areas that are balding. Follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transplantation are the two most common types of hair restoration procedures, both capable of producing visually pleasing and natural looking results, with Neograft (FUE) being a modern method of the former (FUT). This procedure is FDA-cleared and minimally invasive, greatly lowering the risk of surgical complication while also being much quicker than traditional hair transplant.
