Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Therapy

"A natural way to reduce hair loss"

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical procedure for hair rejuvenation to delay or stop the progression of hair loss. 

PRP treatments can help both male and female pattern baldness and alopecia as it encourages the growth of existing hair follicles, making your hair appear fuller and healthier without resorting to surgery.

PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets, made from your own blood, that contain growth factors that initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. It is therefore the most natural way to stimulate hair growth.

“Growth factors play the role of messengers signalling cells to function. They've been used in medicine to treat a range of health issues, including arthritis and wound repair. The good news for anyone experiencing hair loss is that growth factors can help stimulate the activity of their hair follicles to promote hair growth.” Dr Victoria

To create your PRP a small amount of your blood is taken and then placed in a centrifuge to separate the different types of blood cells.  The platelet rich part of your blood is then extracted to make your personalised PRP serum rich in growth factors.

Whilst your PRP serum is being prepared your practitioner will gently inject local anaesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable.

Using specialised equipment your PRP serum is then injected into your scalp, where you are experiencing hair loss, to strengthen and stimulate your hair follicles to promote thicker hair growth.

Immediately afterwards you will experience redness and mild tenderness with slight bleeding on your scalp which will resolve in 48 hours. 

Post treatment you must not wash your hair until the following day and cannot use hair styling products for 48 hours. The appearance of your hair during this period will be unattractive and you may wish to arrange time away from work or social activities.

PRP therapy works with the natural growth cycle of your hair follicles, so new patients need repeat treatments every 4-6 weeks. Most patients need:

  • 3 treatments to reduce hair loss,
  • 6 treatments to encourage hair growth. 

So, you will need an initial course of 3-6 treatments. Optimum results are seen 6 months after the last treatment. 

We recommended a maintenance treatment every 6 months

Yes you can combine PRP hair treatments with:

  • Keravive treatments
  • Minoxidil treatments
  • LED light treatments
  • Specialised shampoos and conditioners

However, such a treatment plan should be carefully co-ordinated and discussed with your practitioner.

New patients must have a 30 minute consultation with a doctor or nurse to check their medical history and determine the best treatment plan for them. As every treatment plan is tailored to the individual - an accurate price will be given at your consultation, but starting prices are indicated above.

Is PRP safe?

Yes - the major advantage of PRP is that it involves no foreign substances, because your own growth factors extracted from your own blood are used. Which means there is no risk of any disease transmission or allergic reaction.

Since 2009 medical research on the safety of PRP has been gaining momentum and now both the US FDA and UK's NICE regulatory bodies have confirmed that PRP treatments are safe.

PRP is used by some NHS trusts in accelerating recovery post operations. PRP is also widely used in sports medicine, with famous athletes such as Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal benefitting from PRP treatments to sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries.

Does PRP hurt?

Our skilled medical team use topical or local anaesthetic on the areas to be treated to ensure your comfort. While the treatments are painless some aspects of the PRP application, such as injections around the eyes or the amount of blood visible, can cause anxiety, but our medical assistants will be on hand to comfort and calm you.

Who is suitable for PRP?

We provide PRP treatments for skin rejuvenation and to reduce hair loss. We do not treat sports injuries. A consultation and physical examination is required to determine if PRP is a suitable treatment for your concern.
