The treatment, which has shown preliminary but promising results, starts by drawing blood from the patient. The blood then goes into a machine that separates out the platelets filled with growth factors.
Those growth factor-filled platelets are then injected into the scalp to stimulate new-hair growth, decrease hair loss and make the hair grow thicker. PRP injections can also be used on the face to build collagen and remove the appearance of wrinkles. Producing platelet rich plasma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
