Drawing of blood- Blood is drawn from the patient’s body usually from the arm.
Processing- The drawn blood is then put into a centrifuge. A centrifuge is a spinning machine that separates the fluid by varying densities. After spending 10 minutes inside the machine, blood will be separated into three layers.
1. Platelet-poor plasma
2. Platelet-rich plasma
3. Red blood cells
After the fluid is separated, platelet-rich plasma is injected into the areas of the scalp with a syringe.
