At some point in their lives, both men and women will experience hair thinning. It usually occurs later in life for women. When approaching hair loss, the most crucial first step is to get a correct diagnosis.
There are various reasons for hair loss, and only a correct diagnosis can point the patient in the right direction for an effective treatment. Alopecia patients can benefit from the revolutionary new Growth Factor Therapy which does not contain any additives whatsoever.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides Growth Factor Hair Stimulation Therapy to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
What Is Growth Factor Therapy?
In the Growth Factor Therapy, a small amount of blood is taken and processed to segregate the growth factor serum. After that, the provider injects it into the scalp where it stimulates new hair growth.
This therapy only uses the patient’s own blood, and nothing is added to it during processing. Therefore, the patient does not have to be concerned about any toxins or chemicals being injected into their scalp.
Three Steps to Thicker Hair
- The provider takes less than 30 ml of the patient’s blood.
- The blood is processed in a centrifuge to isolate the Growth Factor rich blood serum. Since no additives are used, this is a true autologous system.
- The blood serum is purified and then injected into the region of the scalp that has hair loss to stimulate hair growth in this area.
Growth Factor Hair Stimulation Therapy can be used as an individual treatment option to fortify the hair follicle ensuring its longevity and strength. This therapy can also be used as a way to rejuvenate dormant hair follicles and stimulate the growth of new hair.
Furthermore, this innovative treatment can be used in combination with other procedures. In essence, it provides hair follicles with strength and reduces trauma to enhance healing.
Studies Indicate Promising Outcomes
This is a relatively new technology, but early research indicates that promising results. Growth Factor Therapy harnesses powerful growth factors and channels their inherent wound healing attributes. This treatment can restore many hair follicles to full or near-full productivity.
This therapy can help patients initially by reversing the impact of thinning or receding hair and slowly develop thicker, fuller, and healthier hair without the need to undergo an invasive hair transplantation procedure.
The Growth Factor Therapy Hair Restoration Experience
Growth Factor Hair Stimulation Therapy involves a simple process. The patient can undergo this treatment as an outpatient procedure with no need for anesthesia or any post-treatment downtime.
Within the initial two to six months, the patient will experience noticeable improvements in hair growth and thickness. To maintain optimal hair follicle stimulation and growth, the PRP injections may be scheduled every three to nine months.
Topical hair restoration medicines, such as Rogaine and Propecia, may also help boost the effects of the cell restoration process for some patients. Therefore, some patients use these medicines along with Growth Factor Therapy.
ACell’s MatriStem (ACell) can also enhance the efficacy of PRP injections. ACell is a biomatrix that repairs and reconstructs compromised tissue. ACell and PRP treatments in combination have proven to be more successful in hair restoration than PRP injections alone.
This combination therapy is a suitable preventive or corrective hair restoration approach for men as well as women who are experiencing hair thinning or hair loss.
Growth Factor Therapy for hair restoration can also be undertaken as a standalone procedure, pre-surgically, intra-surgically, or post-surgically. But this therapy is not suitable for scalp areas where the follicles are already dead or entirely absent.
