Hair Transplant with FUE
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is an advanced hair transplant technique to restore hair in a minimally invasive way. The entire treatment can be performed in a single sitting of about three to eight hours, depending on the extent of hair restoration required. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis using only local anesthesia.
The treatment provider will use a small surgical punch to surround and pneumatically remove individual hair follicular units. The units will be sorted and preserved in a sterile environment before they are implanted in the targeted recipient area. Some improvement in the appearance of the hairline will be noticed immediately, but the results will become apparent in about three months, and will be fully established in about 12 to 14 months.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody offer iGrow LLLT to patients who want to optimize the outcomes of their FUE hair transplant treatment. LLLT is a light based at-home procedure designed to stimulate new hair growth and support FUE transplant without any side effects.
The controlled and gentle laser energy delivered LLLT treatments will reverse apoptosis, promote re-growth, and make the healing process faster. It serves as a successful supplementary therapy to FUE hair transplantation.
ACell™ MatriStem and PRP Therapy
ACell™ is a non-surgical bio-matrix with proven benefits in the repair and regeneration of damaged tissue. When ACell™ hair restoration is applied in combination with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, it produces more effective results. While PRP growth factors promote localized cell production and blood vessel formation, ACell™ MatriStem activates adult PRP within the hair follicles.
The synergistic impact of this combined treatment creates stronger hair follicles and more robust hair re-growth. Depending on the extent of hair loss, this combined therapy can be performed on the whole scalp or a localized area. The procedure can be completed on an outpatient basis in about 90 minutes, and involves very limited downtime.
MBody provides various plastic surgery as well as non-surgical procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas.
PRP therapy may be used as a standalone procedure to promote hair growth. It may also be combined with hair transplant procedure or ACell™ hair re-growth technique. When PRP therapy is performed individually, it will usually not involve any downtime.
The provider will draw a small amount of blood from the patient, which will be sent through a centrifugal process to separate platelets. This platelet rich plasma is re-introduced into the scalp through injections or topical application. It will create hair growth gradually over a period of one year with scheduled periodic treatments.
