Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments for Hair Loss Now Available at Skin and Laser Surgery Center

MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Bajoghli and the Skin and Laser Surgery Center of McLean, Virginia now offer the Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment for patients with thinning hair and/ or hair loss.

Hair loss, whether premature or part of the natural aging cycle, is a problem that affects both men and women. The lack of a workable solution for this persistent, often embarrassing condition has been frustrating for many patients.

Since Dr. Amir Bajoghli understands how important it is to be able to offer his patients an effective way to combat thinning hair and hair loss, he is pleased to now provide Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments for hair loss.

PRP is a non-surgical method of activating hair growth that uses the platelets from the patient’s own blood to stimulate the production of new hair follicles.

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and stimulate new cell growth. This wonderful gift of nature promotes the growth and regeneration of the patient’s own hair. This repair process usually results in a fuller and completely natural head of hair.

During a PRP treatment session a small amount of blood is drawn from the arm of the patient. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge (spinning machine) and spun to separate the platelets and plasma from the white and red blood cells, as well as other blood factors.

After the plasma and platelets are separated from the rest of the blood, they are injected into areas of the scalp to increase hair growth.

Since the platelets contain growth factors that can help stimulate cell growth, the locations where they are injected become naturally and healthily rejuvenated.

Patients of Dr. Bajoghli can now enjoy the numerous advantages of Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy for hair loss or thinning hair:

  • Completely natural and natural-looking results
  • A treatment that uses only substances obtained from the person’s own blood
  • The procedure is simple and non-surgical
  • The patient can receive multiple injections in one treatment
  • Procedure normally takes less than one hour
  • The treatment is safe and reliable

Patients feel minimal discomfort during treatment and PRP is both a safe and an effective way Dr. Amir Bajoghli can help patients who have concerns about hair loss or thinning hair.

Patients find there is minimal to no downtime associated with PRP treatments and they can quickly return to their normal activities.

Dr. Bajoghli has been active in the practice of dermatology and laser surgery since the completion of his training at the combined Tufts University and Boston University Schools of Medicine and Hospitals. He is board certified in Dermatology and board eligible in Internal Medicine.
