Washington DC Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Services
New Hair Restoration Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, has been gaining ground recently as a non-surgical treatment option for a variety of ailments. What makes this treatment so intriguing is that it uses your own blood. This is very similar to the breakthroughs that scientists have found in stem cell treatments, such as Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy, for a variety of severe diseases. The theory behind PRP is that the platelets contained in your blood have the ability to heal your tissues and promote new cell growth.
Our Washington DC platelet rich plasma therapy services have helped many clients treat:
- Male pattern hair loss
- Androgenetic alopecia
- Female pattern hair loss
- Androgenic alopecia
- Thinning hair
Visage Dermatology and Aesthetics Center is proud to offer this new and innovative treatment as a natural alternative to combating hair loss.
The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Process
When you come in for this procedure, your blood will be drawn and then spun in a centrifuge, where the red and white blood cells will be separated. The clear fluid that is generated from the centrifuge is the plasma, which will have a much larger concentration of platelets. When this concentration is injected into your scalp, it reacts with your hair follicles and encourages them to boost hair growth.
One session may last a little over one hour, and you might start seeing your hair growth improve after about two to six weeks. You can choose how often you would like to come in for treatments.
There are several factors that determine the schedule of your treatment plan, including:
- Your age
- Your hormone levels
- Your genetic makeup
- The amount of hair loss
Some patients can go up to nine months without feeling the need to undergo the procedure. However, some research has shown that receiving PRP therapy every three to four months can vastly improve the rate at which the hair grows and promote thickening and new hair to develop.
Determining If PRP Is Right for You
PRP therapy is a fantastic option for many individuals who are looking for a safe and effective way to reverse hair loss. We have many satisfied clients who have greatly benefitted from this treatment option. However, there is a possibility that you may not be able to take advantage of PRP therapy.
You may experience some undesirable effects if you:
- Are a heavy smoker
- Consume lots of alcohol
- Use drugs
- Have chronic skin disease
- Have cancer
- Have a blood disorder
You can speak with our Washington DC hair restoration experts to be sure you are a good candidate. If it turns out that this treatment option is not right for you, you may be able to benefit from PRP in a different way.
