ELLE's annual roundup of age-defying breakthroughs will have you looking better than your #flashbackfriday from head to toe, but here, we're focusing on hair products particularly.

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) hair-growth treatments—during which a patient's blood is processed via centrifuge to concentrate the plasma, then shallowly syringed into the scalp—are getting a boost with human placental tissue. In an hour-long session, Alan J. Bauman, MD, injects a custom cocktail of a patient's own stem-cell-rich plasma combined with placenta from a medically screened donor into target areas, then follows with microneedling. On average, 90 percent of patients with early-stage hair loss will experience a 20 percent increase in volume and coverage, Bauman says. And unlike traditional PRP, which requires patients to return for treatment every 90 days to six months, placenta-enhanced PRP results last up to two years.
