NEW YORK, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Lawrence Jaeger, a leading New York City Dermatologist offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy for patients suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. Recent studies have provided new evidence indicating the effectiveness of PRP Therapy as a viable non-surgical medical procedure. By utilizing a patient's own blood to create an ideal concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma necessary for hair growth and rejuvenation, Lawrence Jaeger has seen great improvements and results for patients seeking treatment for Alopecia and other types of hair loss. Dedicated to providing current up to date treatments for different forms of Alopecia, Dr. Lawrence Jaeger has outfitted his Central Park South facility with state of the art equipment to ensure the most effective therapy available.
Lawrence Jaeger has years of experience providing traditional hair loss therapies including the use of physical and medicinal therapies. His use of these treatments has been successful with patients; however, new developments in centrifuge technology and injection techniques have made Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy a viable choice in his treatment of Alopecia.
Lawrence Jaeger explains the treatment and its benefits.
"First and foremost, the essence of PRP therapy is using the patient's own blood to create an optimal formulation of Platelet Rich Plasma. After drawing a blood sample, the blood is spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Plasma, and Platelet Rich Plasma.) The PRP component is then activated with a small amount of calcium which releases growth factors from the platelets, which in turn amplifies the healing process. Injecting the enriched Platelet Rich Plasma into the treatment area stimulates the inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase."
Lawrence Jaeger continues,
"When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the clot they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue response by attracting stem cells to repair the damaged area, resulting in an amplification of the body's normally occurring wound healing system."
Lawrence Jaeger and Advanced Dermatology Associates have seen a significant increase in patients seeking out this alternative hair rejuvenation therapy. A recent study estimates there are between 75-100 million American men and women suffering from hair loss. Some of the main advantages of PRP for Hair Loss Therapy are the non-surgical nature of the procedure, a relatively short procedure duration (roughly 60 -90 minutes), safe and reliable results as the treatment uses the patient's own blood, a quick recovery period and extremely natural looking results.
