PRP For Hair Loss
Hair loss occurs in both men and women and can significantly affect a person’s self-perception and self confidence. While medical treatments such as Finasteride (Propecia) and Minoxidil (Regaine) can cause unwanted side effects, there’s a safe and simple medical treatment that can thicken hair and be used alone, or alongside other hair loss treatments.
We’re renowned as leaders in skin treatments, dermal fillers and BotoxⓇ, but one of most popular treatments right now is none of the above. In fact, it’s this – an innovative treatment for thinning hair called platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
The beauty of PRP is that all you need is your own blood – it’s highly effective but also very safe. Platelet-rich plasma is simply the healing parts of your own blood, taken from a blood sample and concentrated in a centrifuge machine. One vial of blood will yield about 20 little syringes of PRP. When this solution is injected into any area on the body, it floods the area with growth factors and rejuvenates at a cellular level. When injected specifically into the scalp, it stops the hair from miniaturising (getting smaller and thinner), and helps ‘wake up’ existing hair follicles, reversing hair thinning.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) has been proven to help with thinning hair – we recommend a course of 3-6 treatments, results may vary.
What's the first step?
You must have an Initial Injectable Consultation before proceeding with your first treatment – regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment. We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.
