What is PRP Collagen Induction Therapy- Hair Restoration?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a hair loss treatment for thinning hair. PRP uses a patient’s own platelets to restore hair follicles that have been dormant for up to three years.

Collagen Induction Therapy- Hair Restoration

PRP micro-injections in the scalp trigger your body to increase the blood supply to the area including the hair follicle, increasing thickness and growth. This typically requires a series of 3-6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. We offer adjunct topical medications to help further reactivate hair follicles to stimulate hair regrowth.

* Add Exosome Regenerative Complex + to enhance treatment efficiency. Exosomes work to regenerate the skin by communicating with our cells in order to transfer these powerful proteins and positively affect our cell functions.
