PRP Injection is a new innovated technique aims to find a solution for hair loss or baldness problem.

- This plasma that was taken is injected into damaged follicles and weak hair areas, sometimes hair enhancement medications are added to strengthen the blood circulation, which leads to strengthening hair follicular and the hair itself.
- The plasma extracted from the blood contains very useful materials and elements that help to nourish and strengthen hair follicles; it also contains a very large amount of proteins and vitamins, as well as glycogen, alpha particles and other materials.
- These materials help the cells to regenerate, restore itself and repair the damaged tissues, it is to be noted that having plasma hair injection takes an average time of about 15 minutes only.
