Your MAXIM surgeon will first numb your scalp with anesthesia. Then, they will inject the plasma into target areas in the scalp. This plasma contains a high concentration of platelets that promotes hair growth. Moreover, this is helpful for patients with hair loss.
PRP therapy can be performed alone. Also, it can be done as a combination with other surgical and non-surgical procedures like:
