Platelet Rich Plasma

One key to successful hair restoration is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which contains growth factors, fibrinogens and cytokines, all of which are involved in the regenerative process

The structural support differs depending on the type of cells it supports; thus the structural support for the brain is different than for the skeletal system
