PRP Treatment for Hair Restoration

PRP Treatment for Hair Restoration

PRP Treatment for Hair Restoration Northern Virginia | Washington DC

shutterstock_144521042-300x263 PRP Treatment for Hair Restoration | Northern VirginiaPRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a revolutionary treatment for hair loss. The team of hair restoration experts at MBody constantly strives to adopt innovative and cutting edge technologies to deliver outstanding results to their patients. PRP is one of the latest and advanced solutions, which is safe as well as proving to be highly effective for many patients.

What is PRP?

In recent years, cell therapy in the form of Platelet Rich Plasma, cell multiplication, growth factors have been the major areas of research and innovation in several streams of medicine. Hair transplantation is one of the key areas where researchers have noticed highly encouraging and promising results with the application of cell therapy.
In platelet rich plasma therapy, the hair restoration expert will use the patient’s own blood. The blood is collected and sent through a centrifugal process that is designed to separate out PRP, which contains natural hair growth factors. This component is employed actively in the treatment of hair loss. PRP therapy may be used as a stand-alone procedure as well as in conjunction with hair transplant surgery.

Benefits with Hair Transplant

PRP therapy can provide benefit in at least four different ways when a patient is undergoing a hair transplant procedure.

  • The separated PRP is injected into the FUE or FUG/strip donor area to support the healing process and minimize scarring.
  • Each individual graft is dipped into PRP before it is transplanted into the targeted area. This ensures more effective hair re-growth.
  • It is injected directly into the scalp’s recipient areas where the grafts are placed. This helps to increase the speed of healing and improves the regrowth of grafts, especially in scalp areas that have scarring from a previous implant or another injury. Another key benefit is regrowth in the crown region where the hairs typically have a lower tendency of regrowth.
  • PRP is employed to treat loss of hair in other areas of the scalp that are not a part of the transplant surgery. This is similar to a situation where PRP is used as a stand-alone therapy.

Duration of Treatment

The complete process of PRP therapy may take about 90 minutes. The bulk of the time is involved in drawing and processing the patient’s blood for the injection treatment. Thereafter, the hair expert will usually review the patient at the end of second week and sixth week to assess the healing and evaluate early results.

Results with PRP

PRP is rich in growth factors and platelets, which are considered to be among the most powerful mediators of healing in the human body. Hair experts will customize the application of PRP to the scalp according to the hair loss pattern and other factors that are unique to a patient. Positive results can be seen in patients with progressive hair loss.
Those who are undergoing transplant procedures can achieve more sustainable results. Most patients will show a positive response in terms of slowing down or even stoppage of the progressive hair loss. Research in the area of PRP for hair regrowth is still continuing as more and more patients report their personal experience with PRP hair regeneration.

UltraShape Selective Fat Cell Reduction

UltraShape

Excess fat accumulation is a common aesthetic problem today for both women and men. Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center is equipped to provide some of the latest and most effective non-invasive solutions to reduce unwanted fats. One of the cutting edge procedures available at the medical clinic is UltraShape. This FDA cleared fat reduction procedure makes use of ultrasound technology to deliver targeted heat energy to localized fat deposits in areas such as abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs.
UltraShape treatment destroys the unwanted fat cells through an entirely non-surgical procedure. MBody med spa may recommend this procedure for patients who are bothered by stubborn fat pockets, but do not want to undergo a plastic surgery procedure. Patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive this treatment at MBody.

How does UltraShape Work?

UltraShape is an innovative procedure requiring just three treatment sessions of one hour each to provide marked fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs. The non-invasive system is designed to focus ultrasound energy on the targeted localized areas of the body.
The energy penetrates into the deeper layers to disrupt the stubborn fat cells. The body will process these disintegrated cells, which will gradually get removed from the body in a natural way. Results with UltraShape are more natural looking and long lasting. The procedure is entirely painless, and involves no downtime.
UltraShape holds the unique distinction of being the first and only FDA cleared non-surgical body shaping system that employs pulsed, focused ultrasound to mechanically and selectively disintegrate fat cells at a targeted focal point in the subcutaneous fat tissue. The procedure causes no damage to the healthy surrounding skin, blood vessels, connective tissue or nerves. Measurable results will appear in a natural way in about two weeks.

Suitable Candidates

Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center will carefully evaluate a candidate before recommending UltraShape treatment. The medical clinic receives patients from  Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding areas for fat reduction procedures. The treatment may be well-suited for men or women who are unable to achieve significant fat reduction in specific areas of the body through diet or exercise.
People who are busy at the workplace or with family responsibilities may be sterling candidates for this procedure because UltraShape can be performed quickly at the medical facility, and does not involve any recovery period. The procedure avoids all the potential risks and side effects that are typically associated with a surgery.
Proven Results
UltraShape is clinically proven to be safe and effective. More than 15 peer reviewed papers have been published, and over 300,000 UltraShape treatments have been performed around the world. Patient satisfaction rate is as high as 94 percent with this treatment.
Independent clinical studies involving over 850 patients have been conducted to determine the safety profile of this treatment. The procedure is based on a natural fat clearance process through which the cell debris and triglycerides from the destroyed fat cells exit the body naturally, and cause no harm

Your Botox Medical Clinic in Northern Virginia | Washington DC

Botox Medical Clinic 

plastic-surgery-4-300x300 Your Botox Medical Clinic in Northern Virginia | Washington DC | Northern VirginiaModern Body Contouring and Laser Center provides a wide range of non-invasive aesthetic solutions, including Botox injectable treatment. Among a variety of non-surgical anti-aging treatments, Botox continues to be one of the most popular solutions worldwide. The treatment was approved in 2002 by the FDA for the reduction of frown lines from the face.
Since then it has been widely used by medical clinic treatment providers with highly safe and satisfactory results. It is, however, important that Botox treatment should be received only at a qualified and reputed medical clinic to ensure desired outcomes. Patients in  Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive Botox injections at MBody.

How does it work?

Botox is produced from botulinum toxin, which is recognized as a highly powerful biological substance. Controlled volumes of this toxin are used in a Botox injectable to reduce the wrinkles and lines from the face. The treatment is designed to cause the overactive wrinkle-forming muscle on the face to relax, which allows the wrinkle to fade away temporarily. Very fine needles are used to inject the treatment directly into the targeted muscle.
The effect of Botox treatment can last for about three to six months till the muscle remains in a relaxed condition. Botox is also used for the reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes, lip enhancement and reduction of other facial lines and wrinkles. Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center is a state of the art medical clinic providing Botox and other non-invasive treatments to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding communities.

Advantages

Botox treatment entirely avoids the need for any cuts or incisions, and achieves very significant anti-aging results for the face. Patients who are keen to avoid the typical risks or side effects that are associated with a surgical procedure may consider Botox as an effective non-surgical alternative. The success rate of the procedure is very high, scarring is non-existent, and results are highly desirable as long as the treatment is performed by an expert at a reputed medical clinic.
Botox treatment is largely free of pain and discomfort. The treatment provider will make use of a topical local anesthetic to keep the patient comfortable through the treatment. Affordability is another key benefit, particularly for people who are not keen to spend a substantial amount on an elective procedure that is not covered by health insurance.
Busy moms and working people prefer Botox treatment the most because of its obvious advantages. A single treatment session of Botox can be completed in less than one hour. No downtime is involved in most cases, and the patient is usually able to return to their everyday routine almost immediately. Some working people, in fact, make a Botox appointment during the lunch hour, and go back to work after receiving the treatment.

FDA Approval for Crow’s Feet

Botox received another boost when the treatment was approved by the FDA in 2013 for cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. More people now feel encouraged to take advantage of the benefits of Botox as a safe and conservative anti-aging procedure.

PRP Hair Regrowth Technique

A team of US scientists has made a first-of-its-kind breakthrough by employing Platelet Rich Plasma technique to promote hair regrowth. The technique involves conversion of human stem cells into a unique type of cell that has the ability to spur hair regrowth. Further research and development in this area is likely to result in a new cell-based treatment to address the condition of hair loss.
Lead scientist Alexey Terskikh said in a news release: “The method is a marked improvement over current methods that rely on transplanting existing hair follicles from one part of the head to another. Our PRP  method provides an unlimited source of cells from the patient for transplantation and isn’t limited by the availability of existing hair follicles.”

Study Methodology

The study, which has been published in Plos One, began with the scientists converting the human embryonic cells into neural crest cells. This is a unique cell that emerges early on in development and transforms into the cells of the nervous system, components of the skeletal system, and pigment containing cells. The scientists converted these cells into dermal papillae cells, which are known to perform the function of regulating hair follicle development and its growth cycle.
Once these cells were developed, the scientists transplanted them beneath the skin of immunodeficient mice, which lack body hair. Scientific research commonly uses these mice because they typically receive transplants and grafts without tissue rejection. It was found that the transplanted cells caused new formation of hair follicles in the mice. Researchers found it to be a much more effective way than transplanting dermal papillae that were directly isolated from the human scalp.
Terskikh said: “Our next step is to transplant human dermal papilla cells derived from human pluripotent PRP cells back into human subjects. We are currently seeking partnerships to implement this final step.”
