Ouai: WHAT IS PRP HAIR THERAPY AND CAN IT CURE HAIR LOSS?
Maybe you remember seeing an image of Kim Kardashian's face covered in blood, a gross requirement for getting a vampire facial. Or maybe you erased the moment from your memory. Either way, the sight of something as repulsive might be an easier pill to swallow if you knew that the same method by which vampire facials operate, using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) extracted from your own blood, can combat hair loss via PRP Hair Therapy. Having gained popularity in dermatology about six years ago, PRP injections have the ability to stimulate hair growth in areas of thinning on the scalp.
