PRP uses the body’s own platelet rich plasma to stimulate regrowth of hair in the existing hair follicles via subdermal injection.
Photodynamic Light Therapy is also effective at stimulating regrowth, if used to complement PRP, results may be enhanced.
Your doctor will assess your scalp to determine if your hair follicles are still open and active at your consultation before devising your bespoke treatment plan for optimal results.
