PRP Treatment for Hair Loss

Looking for an effective non-surgical hair-loss treatment? PRP works as a standalone hair-loss treatment or synergistically with microneedling

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a leading non-surgical hair loss treatment for both men and women.

PRP is a new and innovative hair loss treatment that requires no surgery but can help stimulate hair growth. It requires taking a small blood sample, less than what you’d normally give when donating blood. This blood sample is harvested using the latest, most advanced technology and then applied back into your scalp using a microneedling device where hair is thinning. A few short treatment sessions are required but PRP may prevent the need for a hair transplant and there is no aftercare needed for this procedure. PRP treatments tend to be an hour long and patients can go about normal activities immediately after.

What is PRP therapy for hair loss?

Platelets within blood plasma contain a large number of growth factors. These growth factors stimulate dormant hair follicles and also produce an increased amount of collagen. This in turn increases the density of your scalp, resulting in an attractive full-head of hair. 

Breakthrough clinical trials and research conducted in 2018 on the benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) for patients with Alopecia and other dermatological conditions, were able to evidence positive outcomes; adding further weight to the excellent first-hand results we witness each week in patients choosing to undertake PRP treatment with us. 

Leading Dermatologists have referred to this latest body of evidence and how PRP is regarded as a highly effective treatment for hair loss, within an article published by The American Academy of Dermatology Association.

How does a PRP hair loss treatment work?

PRP hair loss treatment is a simple 3-step procedure, which is as follows:

  • Collect Blood

  • Separate Platelets in a Centrifuge

  • apply PRP using microneedling device

The first step, blood is collected from the patient. Platelets are separated in a centrifuge and then they are injected into the scalp. It’s as quick and simple as that. To ensure that you do not feel any pain or discomfort, we use a very fine needle. Once treatment is done, you can return to work immediately as no sedation is required.

At our clinics, we use the FDA approved PRP treatment. The centrifuge and gel separation technique produces a high-quality concentration of PRP enriched with maximum growth factors. These are key to producing the best outcome. The growth factors allow the anagen phase of hair growth to be prolonged, minimizing the damage caused during the catagen phase, hence allowing for maximum effect when the growth cycle is restarted.
