Can you explain how PRP is made?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is made by doing between a 20 mL to 60 mL blood draw from the patient.
The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge machine and the centrifuge spins at a very high rate separating the components of the blood. The separated platelets, growth factors, are used as the PRP therapy. The remaining red blood cells are discarded.
The PRP is used as a scalp treatment alone without hair transplantation and can be used in conjunction with the hair transplantation surgery.
