"PRP is considered experimental for hair growth but there have been extensive studies published in peer-review Derm literature about its use. Dr Rapaport has led the US clinical trials in PRP use.

"NOTE: it is not covered by insurance and is expensive. But many have noted that the hair products, pieces, laser caps are also expensive. "I used pronox for analgesia, and i need to go back once a month for four months. #hairloss #prptreatment #covidhairloss."
