Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center provides innovative hair loss treatments, including hair transplant and non-invasive solutions. Traditionally, hair transplant surgery and certain topical treatments have been used to address the conditions of hair loss. However, MBody now offers a new, cutting edge non-surgical treatment for hair regrowth.
Led by board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding communities.
Patients suffering from shortening or thinning of hair and pattern baldness now have a non-surgical treatment option in the form of platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy is an almost non-invasive technique for hair regeneration. It involves a process to stimulate the damaged or dormant hair follicles in order to pave way for natural hair regrowth. Unlike surgical hair transplants, PRP therapy does not involve relocation of hair follicles on the scalp.
The goal of PRP therapy is to rejuvenate the follicles that are already in place. The procedure may be performed as a standalone treatment or in combination with other procedures such as FUE surgery. In both cases, this innovative treatment can produce very encouraging outcomes. Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center offers PRP therapy to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and nearby areas.
What is PRP?
On average, the blood plasma in the human body contains about 10 percent of platelet cells. PRP therapy involves a process of structurally modifying the patient’s own blood in a controlled manner to enhance the concentration of platelets in the plasma. This modified plasma contains almost 90 percent platelets, and is therefore called “platelet rich” plasma (PRP).
This PRP is prepared for injecting into the affected areas of the scalp. Its natural wound healing properties support the regeneration of damaged hair follicles and improve the appearance of thinning hair.
How does PRP Therapy Work?
Studies have shown that hair follicles that have been identified as “non productive” due to injury, dormancy or another cause, can still remain alive for about five to eight years. PRP therapy can be applied to trigger or stimulate activity in these weakened follicles or newly implanted hair follicles to cause them to return to their active growth phase.
While research is still continuing in the area of PRP hair regeneration therapy, early results have shown that leveraging the natural power of platelet growth factors and utilizing their wound healing properties can help restore many hair follicles back to full or near-full productivity. Patients can experience reversal of the effects of thinning or receding hair and gradually achieve fuller and thicker hair.
With PRP therapy, the patient can experience visible improvement in hair growth. Hair thickness will be apparent in about two to six months. PRP injectable treatment sessions may be scheduled every three to nine months in order to maintain optimal stimulation and growth of hair follicles.
