New hair loss treatment uses patient's own blood

A promising new treatment for hair loss can be found in your own body.

It's called "platelet rich plasma therapy".

Doctors say it works by injecting a patient's own blood into the scalp.

The therapy stimulates hair regrowth and thickens the hair follicles.

It costs $400 per treatment, and some say they have seen results after just one treatment.
