How it Works
To create platelets enriched plasma. Doctor drew a blood sample from patients body and place that sample in a machine called centrifuge. Machine spins the sample at a very high speed which separates all the other components of blood from platelets. Concentrate the blood with plasma.
The separated sample inject into a affected place e.g a patch of baldness or any sports injury which can cause hair loss etc into the patient’s body.It inreturn will accelerate growth factors that triggers the healing process. Infused plasma rich platelets speed up the healing process, shortens healing time, decreasing pain and moreover boost hair growth.
