There are many things that cause baldness. The typical baldness in men is the male pattern baldness (MPB).This has its roots in the genes. The other reasons of baldness in men and women are Infection, Drugs, Pregnancy, Shock or trauma, etc. However, localized hair loss can be caused due to a medical condition such as tumor or skin outgrowth.

Prp Therapy has two phases
This is a medical process that involves two steps
Our blood is composed of Red blood cells, White blood cells, Platelets & Plasma. PRP is made from your blood supply. A little amount of blood is collected from the patient body and then placed in a centrifuge. Here the platelets and plasma separates from the Red Blood cells and white blood cells. The liquid prepared is now mix of plasma and platelet and called as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). Because of the two factors this liquid is rich in nutrients (plasma) & has a repair damage power (Platelet).
A minor injury is done to the scalp which activates the plasma and the nutrients to work for damage repair. Now with the help of a micro needle the PRP is injected to the affected area. The extra nutrients and the platelet present in the plasma hence act as a catalyst for the growth of the damaged hair follicles.
