Top dermatology clinic explains reasons for hair loss and how PRP treatments can help

PRP Hair loss Centreville VA

Hair loss is a devastating blow to a person’s self-esteem. Our hair is one of the first things people notice. If you are suffering from hair that’s thinning and falling out, Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. located in Centreville, wants to help you. We offer innovative treatments for hair loss – PRP treatments.

What is PRP exactly?

Platelet rich plasma is concentrated blood plasma. It contains almost five times the number of platelets found in your normal circulating blood. Platelets are part of our blood to promote healing and aid in blood clotting. They contain growth factors that help cells in our bodies regenerate. We take blood from you, then it’s placed in a centrifuge and spun for approximately fifteen minutes. This separates the regenerating platelet component from the blood. The platelet rich plasma, applied around your damaged hair follicles, assists the body’s wound healing mechanism, stimulating the growth of hair follicles.

Reasons for hair loss:

  • Pattern baldness: This is the most common type. Through each growth cycle, the hair increasingly becomes rooted superficially, causing it to fall out easily. Researchers believe heredity plays a large role.
  • Scarring alopecia: Inflammation of the hair follicle characterizes this. This damages the hair follicle and can cause the hair to fall out.
  • Alopecia areata: A possible autoimmune disorder. Researchers think some are genetically prone to this or a viral infection can contribute.
  • Telogen effluvium: Hair suddenly falls out. It usually occurs when there is an extreme emotional or physical shock to the system.
  • Traction alopecia: This occurs with people who pull their hair too tight during styling. The roots tend to weaken.

PRP treatments work differently for everyone. Schedule a consultation today to find out if PRP will help you. We want you to love your appearance. Don’t suffer another day. Call (866) 808-3140.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
