A newer option, known as platelet rich plasma therapy, can offer a solution to hair loss for people who don’t want a hair transplant or for people who are experiencing hair loss for a number of other reasons.
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is derived from a person’s own blood and contains several broth factors. When injected into balding areas of the scalp, the PRP can stimulate hair growth.
