The concentrated platelets will be returned by microinjecting them directly into the affected area. These platelets trigger the release of growth factors and chemicals to stimulate growth and repair via the recruitment of stem cells.This is a quick easy treatment with no down time required, and you will usually need up to 4 sessions spread 4 weeks apart to see results.
