PRP CARE SHEET 

Short for platelet-rich plasma, PRP is a fast, treatment that can hide age spots, minimize acne scars, as well as prevent/reverse hair loss and increase the thickness of your hair. The best part is that your PRP injections are completely natural. There are no synthetic compounds pumped into your skin. Every bit of PRP comes from your own body, making this an incredibly organic rejuvenation process.
