“I had my PRP Treatment 3 weeks ago, and I’ve already seen dramatic change. My part line and crown have already filled in enough that I no longer think “thinning”, when I look at my hair. My hair thinning problem is a thing of the past. I have 2 more sessions to go, and my hair already looks so good, that I’m excited to see the full benefits. I’m so glad I made the decision to move forward with the treatment. I am also very thankful I landed in the very competent hands of Samantha!! I am so very fortunate! This woman knows her stuff, and her technique is precision. I am reaping the benefit of her knowledge, and that is the large part of my very successful PRP treatment. “
