How Does It Work?
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply.

Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With this treatment, there is a reverse effect to the miniaturization of the hair follicle, jump starting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
