Chantilly and Centreville, VA area dermatologist describes platelet rich plasma therapy
Patients dealing with hair thinning and loss are often unsure as to how they can combat this condition. Dr. Neeraja Mattay and the team of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. provide hair restoration solutions that work! One of the most commonly requested options for patients around Centreville, VA and Chantilly, VA is platelet rich plasma therapy.
What is platelet rich plasma therapy (or PRPT)?
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, also known as PRPT, is a treatment solution that uses the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth. The blood contains many elements that can be used in a variety of methods in the body. Using a centrifuge, the doctor separates the elements of the blood that is taken from a patient to remove the platelets separately. Then, the platelets are reinjected into the body—specifically the scalp for the treatment of hair loss—which then improves the growth of the hair.
Is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy safe?
This treatment is completely safe. In fact, it:
- Eliminates the need for surgery
- Is performed without anesthetics (unless requested)
- Is risk-free because it is performed with the patient’s own blood
- Eliminates the risks of allergic reactions
- Reduces the chance of infection or rejection
- Is an affordable alternative to other hair restoration techniques
- Is performed right in the practice under your dermatologist’s care
Am I a candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma therapy?
All patients are appropriate candidates for PRPT because it uses the patient’s own blood—meaning there is no chance for an allergic reaction.
