Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Therapy Before & After Photos
Loss of hair is a common problem that may occur due to heredity, aging, nutrition issues, disease, and other factors. Sustained research and development in the field of hair re-growth has led to a number of new treatments and techniques to address this problem. One of the most promising innovations for hair restoration is the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) technique.
The Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center, popularly known as MBody, is a reputed aesthetic enhancement practice providing cutting edge non-invasive treatments, including hair restoration solutions. Patients may also receive consultation about plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, who head MBody, are both board certified plastic surgeons. 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 PRP hair restoration at MBody.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an innovative non-invasive treatment designed to promote natural hair growth. A number of sports and movie personalities have adopted PRP, which has led to a faster acceptance of this solution. The treatment aims to employ natural growth factors from the patient’s blood platelets to address hair loss.
According to researchers, the growth factors employed in PRP can control loss of hair and stimulate the natural growth of new hair because these factors work quite like the PRP therapy. Patient’s own plasma is provided to their scalp through injections. The technique is fairly new, but the initial results have been very encouraging, as reported by various hair restoration experts.
Preparation and Application
MBody laser center provides safe and effective aesthetic treatments along with consultations in plastic surgery as needed by a patient. The practice receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding communities. At the time of initial consultation, the PRP treatment expert will discuss various aspects of the procedure to the patient so that they can make an informed decision.
Autologous PRP, which is derived from the patient’s own blood, will be used for hair restoration. To separate the liquid portion of the blood from the solid, the blood is spun in a centrifuge, along with platelet activators such as thrombin, calcium chloride, and collagen. The solid component of the blood is the PRP, which is then re-introduced into the affected site of hair loss through injections. In case of a hair transplant, the PRP may be sprayed over the site.
The hair restoration provider may schedule the injections at intervals of three to nine months to stimulate sustainable hair growth. With the first two to six months, most patients will be able to notice significant improvement. Periodic treatments will help to maintain the improvements.
Mechanism of Action
Hair follicles thrive with the absorption of oxygen from surrounding tissue. PRP hair restoration treatment introduces platelets and white blood cells into the targeted area. This helps promote the naturally occurring wound healing process, and leads to growth of new hair.
