The beauty of Fotona 4D and platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment
Hair loss is a condition that affects both men and women of all ages. Hair transplantation and medicated shampoos are the traditional treatments, however, medical advances have brought forward a simpler option for hair restoration.
The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair reGrowth Treatment is an effective hair loss treatment for both men and women. PRP is a by-product of blood, which we obtain by separating the platelets from the red blood cells. These platelets have extensive healing properties. We use platelets on the scalp to awaken dormant hair follicles and reactivate hair growth, even after years of baldness.

How is the treatment done?
The PRP Hair reGrowth Treatment is an in-office procedure that uses the platelets found in your blood plasma. The treatment begins with local anesthesia to the scalp before we take a blood sample from you. The centrifugation process allows us to separate the platelets from the red blood cells, giving us plasma that is rich in platelets. We then inject the PRP into the scalp where the hair is thinning. When we inject the PRP into the scalp, the regenerative solution stimulates the dormant hair follicles.
A microneedle pen is also used to optimize results by creating micro-trauma on the scalp. The results may take several weeks to become apparent, but are amazing: a beautiful set of hair, without the need for hair transplantation.
Before beginning the treatment, our aesthetic professionals will first analyze your scalp to determine whether you are a good candidate. The success of the treatment largely depends on the presence of hair follicles under the scalp, which may disappear after years of baldness.
Laser Hair Stimulation Add-On
We combine the PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment with Fotona Laser Hair Stimulation. The laser treatments work in conjuction with the PRP treatments to stimulate hair follicules to produce new hair. The Fotona is one of the most advanced cosmetic lasers in the world and Inovo Medical is the only clinic to have this technology in the nation’s capital.
Why is it So Effective?
In addition to laser stimulation, for optimal results we recommend that the treatment be combined with other modalities for hair restoration. We frequently recommend different options for hair loss, including hair growth supplements and over the counter (OTC) medications.
This cosmetic procedure has a low complication rate and is minimally invasive. Additionally, there is little downtime. It is an out-patient procedure, meaning that the treatment only takes a few hours, and you go home the same day. Risks include bruising, soreness, and swelling of the scalp.
Are there any contraindications to the PRP Hair reGrowth Treatment?
We do not recommend this treatment for hair loss caused by scarring. Also, we do not recommend this treatment for women who are either pregnant or breastfeeding, or for people who have a blood condition.
How many treatments will I need?
The amount of treatments depends on many factors. We often recommend one every month for the first three months. After this stage, a treatment every six to twelve months for upkeep is best. Results become apparent six weeks after the first treatment.
Our innovative approach to cosmetic medicine combines a number of medical procedures, many of which are complementary and work synergistically to optimize results and offer the best possible cosmetic outcome.
We view beauty as more than just an outward appearance. It reflects how you feel inside, and in turn affects your confidence, your self-esteem, and your appreciation of life. It also affects your career opportunities, your relationships, and your personal growth.
