Heva Clinic uses hair transplant and PRP hair treatment in combination to strengthen transplanted hair follicles after the hair transplant procedure.
Should I get PRP hair treatment after a hair transplant surgery?

As a result, follicle vitality is increased, and the success of hair transplant is improved.
