Impressions MediSpa in Fairfax, Virginia offers the latest innovation for non-surgical Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration.  Hair loss can be embarrassing and stressful for both males and females.  Hair loss also affects both genders and there are many factors that can contribute such as medical conditions, aging, and genetics.  Surgical hair restoration can be expensive, have long recovery times and can be quite painful. Now there is a non-surgical method to treat hair loss and improve hair density without surgery, which uses your own platelets to stimulate growth.

Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Restoration:

  • Increases blood supply to the hair follicle
  • Increases hair shaft size and thickness
  • Triggers and maintains the growth phase
  • Decreases hair loss

How PRP for Hair Restoration Works

Platelet Rich Plasma contains growth factors which work as signal callers and gives instructions to your tissues to regenerate cells.  Growth factors and stems cells are stimulated by PRP to reverse hair loss and initiate the dormant (sleeping) hair into the active (growth) phase. Basically, the process starts with numbing the area to be treated for 45 minutes.  Then the healthcare provider extracts your blood in a special collection tube which is then placed in a specialized centrifuge.  After some time the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe.  Using a small needle, the platelets are injected into the scalp and in to the areas that need improvement.  

Patients start seeing results in 4 weeks and will need anywhere from 3 to 5 treatments spaced out every 4 to 6 weeks.  Optimal results will occur 6 months after your last treatment.
