PRP and hair density; ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS NJ

Hair density is a combination of the diameter of the hair shaft as well as the hair count in a specific area. PRP will usually increase the diameter of the hair shaft anywhere from 30 to 80%. The hair count  is another issue. For most people that have dormant hair for less than 5 years, hair regrowth is possible. With hair regrowth as well as increase fiber diameter, the density greatly increases. If either one of the two factors improves, the hair density will also improve. Hope this helps. Good luck.
