One of the alternatives for treating hair loss and thinning hair is the PRP treatment. The word “PRP” stands for “Platelet-Rich Plasma” which the main process is to draw a patient blood and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities) in order to separate plasma that composed of platelet-rich plasma, then inject it back into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth to stimulate the hair to grow and look thicker than ever before.
Nowadays, there are many hospitals that provide PRP treatment. You should do some study before making a decision because some hospitals will use only a simple, inexpensive test tube to separate the platelets which the disadvantage of this type of test tube is that a chance to get platelet-rich plasma will be lower and more difficult so the result will also be less effective. While HAIRSMITH CLINIC uses a tube designed specifically for PRP which results with a PRP that is 3-4 times richer than using a normal test tube.
This treatment is suitable for patients who want a supportive treatment along with a primary one or it can be another option for patients who don’t want to apply or take medicine.
