I personally think it doesn't really work. The before photos the dude has a shaved head and after it's all grown out and combed over. I look like I have a decent head of hair too... if I shaved it, it would look thin as hell.
I spent $3200 on 2 PRP treatments for basically zero results. A $1000+ PRP treatment triggers growth factor response to the treated area. A $10 Derma Roller also triggers growth factors to the treated area.
Seems like the scam du jour to me. The Before/After pics looked about the same (and you can be sure those were the very best results they could find).
Quackery abounds in this field, and it's all about prying open your wallet by creating false hopes. I think you can add PRP to the list of worthless treatments like Histogen, Replicell, Acell, Laser Comb, donor area multiplication, magnetic hats and so on.
