Hair Restoration Treatment with PRP Therapy
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a step-wise medical treatment in which your blood is drawn, processed for PRP, and then injected into your scalp. PRP injections may trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.
PRP therapy typically consists of three monthly treatments followed by maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 months.
Our licensed medical aesthetics team will work with you directly to recommend the best treatments to achieve your facial rejuvenation objectives and goals. If this is your first time receiving medical aesthetics treatment with milk + honey, a consultation is required.
