Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become an Exciting NEW method for the Treatment of various types of Female Hair Loss.
PRP Therapy can be effective for women suffering from hair loss.
Until recently Rogaine (minoxidil) in various preparations was the only treatment option for many women since the most effective medical therapy - oral finasteride - was contraindicated for women because of potential birth defects. PRP Therapy uses your own blood and is safe and effective for many women.

red blood cells
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.
