At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns. We offer a wide variety of services and treatments, including Platelet Rich Plasma injections.
How PRP works
One of the beautiful features of PRP is that it is derived from your own blood, which minimizes the risk of allergic reactions. A small amount of blood will be drawn. That blood is then placed in a centrifuge., which separates the blood into parts. The resulting super-enriched cells have a heavy concentration of beneficial platelets.
The PRP is applied to your scalp through multiple tiny injections. When injected properly by a DANV professional, this platelet rich plasma stimulates hair growth. The platelets release growth factors. These factors enlist more of the cells that are needed for healing, and to repair and restore your hair.
Is PRP right for you?
Platelet rich plasma treatment is proven to speed healing. PRP also requires little downtime, and has minimal side effects. There is no single treatment that works for every condition, so PRP may not be suitable for every patient with hair loss.
