“Vampire” Treatment For Baldness?

vampire treatment for baldness injectionsResearchers claim to have regrown hair on men’s bald patches by injecting them with a formula containing their own blood, leading to the nickname of “vampire treatment” being given to the alleged new hair loss treatment.

The process involves taking blood from the patient and then processing it in a machine that removes “platelet rich plasma” (PRP) from the blood. This PRP is then re-injected back into the scalp.
