I've been undergoing prp hair treatment in Seoul, South

Customer Question

I've been undergoing prp hair treatment in Seoul, South Korea at this clinic called won Jin beauty. Anyway, I noticed there prp treatment procedure is different. What they do is extract my blood, put in in the centrifuge so the blood and Prp separate, but they don't mix the blood and prp for injections. They only inject the blood into my scalp without the prp. Although they apply the prp on my scalp afterwars and then they have me sit under this bright light which helps my scalp absorb the prp. Now, I am no doctor, but I honestly don't think they're doing it right. They're particular procedure is called smart prep stem cell. I asked the doctor why doesn't she mix my blood with the prp upon injection. She replied "because the Prp would downgrade my blood stem cell" can I please get some feedback on my situation? Are they doing it wrong?
