Modern AestheticaPlatelet Rich Plasma Treatment for Hair Loss
Hair loss is a big issue for both men and women, and the fact that it is genetically inclined can leave most people feeling helpless. The current remedies are not particularly attractive, with prescription drugs being hardly effective and carrying potentially undesirable side effects, and surgery for hair restoration being too expensive for a solution that doesn’t not even address the underlying problem.
As part of our comprehensive services at Modern Aesthetica, we provide our patients with a new, affordable way to improve their hair thickness without undergoing a surgery or exposure to unexpected and dangerous side effects. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) for treating hair loss involves injecting your platelets of your own into your scalp to restore normal hair growth.
PRP for Hair Restoration
- Decreases hair loss
- Controls the hair growth cycle
- Increases hair thickness
How PRP Helps to Treat Hair Loss
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood plasma (blood without the red and white blood cells) that contains a higher concentration of platelets (about five times) than that found in normal blood circulating in your body.
The platelets are responsible for promoting healing and the formation of blood clots at the site of a wound. They contain growth elements that improve cell regeneration. PRP therapy is based on the idea that increasing the platelet count in a wounded area should accelerate the body’s healing capacity in that area. There are no side effects since you use your own blood to accelerate the healing.
Dr. Daniel Moghadam applies the same principle to treat hair loss. If you have healthy hair roots or hair follicles, the growth of your hair will also be healthy. The hair follicles get their nutrition from your blood. So by administering PRP therapy in the affected area, it will augment the body’s natural wound-healing mechanism.
With PRP, the growth factors work together with your stem cells to accelerate the growth of hair follicles and jumpstart the growth stage of otherwise dormant hair. The result is hair thickening and regrowth.
Virtually Painless PRP Therapy Procedure for Hair Loss
- Phase 1:
- We will draw about 60 to 100 ml of your blood from one of your veins and place it in a special repository or container.
- Phase 2:
- The container will then be placed in a centrifuge where it will rotate for about 15 minutes. After this time, the components of your blood will have separated, and the concentrated platelets can be separated from the rest of your blood. The PRP has an abundance of growth factors and stem cells, and is ready for application to your scalp.li
- Phase 3:
- The scalp will be prepared for the PRP process by applying a topical anesthesia. Afterwards, the PRP will be applied strategically into your scalp in areas that need improvement.
- A special needling device causes small injuries to the scalp’s lower layer, moving other healing and regrowth repair cells to become active. The microneedle device contains 192 titanium needles that are injected into the skin and open it up, through which the PRP is injected. This is a virtually painless process.
- Previously, doctors had to manually inject different spots around the scalp area to administer the PRP. With the new microneedle rolling device, it is much easier and faster to administer the PRP accurately, resulting in a less painful procedure for our patients.
- Phase 4:
- Finally, Dr. Moghadam will apply occlusive dressing on the scalp, as well as photodynamic treatment on the addressed area to boost the effects of the PRP. Although the process is painless, some mild discomfort can be expected.
- The procedure takes about 20 minutes, including the PRP preparation work. You should be able to resume your normal activities on the same day, but make sure to protect your scalp from direct sunlight and strong irritation.
Who is the right candidate for PRP treatment for hair loss?
PRP treatments for hair loss have been very successful. They have been proven to thicken thinned out hair, as well as boost new hair growth. Several treatments may be necessary at first, spaced one month apart. Afterwards, maintenance treatments may be necessary 2-4 times per year.
That said, PRP is not supposed to become a general cure for baldness. Basically, if the hair follicles are completely gone, the procedure is unlikely to be of any help.
To find out whether you’re a good candidate for PRP, please contact Modern Aesthetica for proper diagnosis and to create a custom treatment plan.
Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!
I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!
Dr. Daniel is the best. His office is clean and the receptionist made me feel super welcome and comfortable. Will definitely be returning!!!
Top notch facility. Top notch doctor. Very happy to have found this place! Thanks Dr M!
Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.
I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.
I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!
I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
Dr. Daniel is the best choice I have ever made! It took me a while to settle on a physician, but I'm glad I chose him!
Hello All...I recently went to see Dr. Daniel @ the newly opened Modern Aesthetics Spa and I was delighted! I had an upcoming social event so I decided to try the PRP facial AKA the vampire facial. There was no discomfort involved and the results were great...soft, pretty, glowing skin! Great staff too...ask for Dana for scheduling, she's awesome!
What can I say! Dr. Danny and his team gave me the amazing glow I wanted for my holiday party. This was my first time doing any lip fillers and facial services and I am totally happy about the results! I'll be back.
I recently tried out the laser hair removal, my legs are so soft. Dr. Daniel did and great job I'm very pleased with the results I got I'll definitely be going back. I recommend everyone go check him out!
This was my first experience with laser hair removal and I've heard a lot of discoursing rumors about pricing and pain. Dr. Daniel made me feel super comfortable about going forward with this treatments and I can't describe how satisfied I am with the results!!!! I did my underarms to start and I will most certainly be going back for more
Let me start by saying, I am VERY selective with who I get work done by. My best friend referred me to Dr. Danny after getting botox done by him. I wanted to not only make my lips more plump, but also correct my crooked upper lip. I have had my lips done before and know what I like. I asked Dr. Danny to give me a natural plump and correction. It has been a week since I've got my lips done and I am pleased to say, he is one of the few Doctors I've come across that ACTUALLY listens to the patients desires. There is a dangerous line between natural enhancements and an overdone fake look. I absolutely love my natural plump and can confidently say that I trust Dr. Danny's work.
I finally decided to try laser hair removal after getting tired of waxing for all these years. I got really attentive service from Dr. Daniel - he actually asked me questions that were relevant to my needs. I informed him that it took a lot of courage for me to finally try out lasering because I was so afraid that it would hurt! I've been going for a couple months now and my body is slowing becoming hairless! I highly recommend Dr. Daniel. Btw the office is brand new and super cute. I’m looking forward to see how the rest of maintenance of the Laser treatment will be.
