Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a three-step treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected. PRP can be used for hair growth and as an injection after laser treatments and facials to enhance outcomes. Gowda MD & Associates is thrilled to offer this treatment as a way to naturally enhance outcomes.
