Hair is a sign of youth and vitality, and thinning hair can make you look older and affect how you feel. If you are losing your hair and want to consider an alternative to a hair transplant, at Harley Street MD, we offer the latest non-surgical platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) hair loss treatment in London for men.
Hair loss is a widespread condition affecting men of all ages, and by age 50, between 30 to 50% of men experience hair loss. Several types of treatments are available to combat hair loss, but we’ve noticed that PRP hair loss treatment is very popular at our Harley Street clinic in London. With little to no downtime, low risks, and complication rates compared to surgical procedures, such as a hair transplant, and fast results, this is not at all surprising.
Sometimes, hair loss results from a genetic condition called androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. Hair loss can also be a sign of underlying health conditions, so we advise consulting with your GP if you have any concerns about your health and general wellness. If you’ve spent your whole life with a great head of hair, it can be worrying when hair loss begins, and it can also impact your confidence. However, there are effective non-surgical hair loss treatments that offer fast results.
What Is the Best Non-surgical Hair Loss Treatment?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (or PRP rejuvenation) is the best non-surgical choice for targeting hair loss conditions. PRP hair loss treatment uses platelets retrieved directly from your blood to rejuvenate the skin on your scalp and encourage hair growth.
The platelets are injected using fine needles into the scalp to stimulate collagen production in the roots of your existing hair follicles and trigger hair growth. PRP treatment is a popular hair loss treatment at our London clinic for men with male pattern baldness. PRP hair loss treatment can produce hair growth results that are visible and natural. Treatment with platelet-rich plasma has been used for over 30 years in various medical procedures to promote tissue healing, so you can rest assured that it’s safe, dependable, and effective.
How Does PRP Hair Loss Treatment Work?
PRP injections for hair loss are fascinating when you understand how they work. Initially, a blood sample is taken from your arm as if you were getting a blood test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge — a device that spins the blood samples at high speeds — to separate the plasma.
Once the process is complete, PRP is isolated from the plasma and injected into the target areas of your scalp for hair growth. The treatment only takes about 30 to 45 minutes. PRP hair loss treatment in London at Harley Street MD is a superior hair growth treatment because it does not carry the average risk of an allergic reaction that other injectable treatments may have.
Why Choose Harley Street MD for PRP Hair Loss Treatment in London?
When you choose PRP hair loss treatment in London at Harley Street MD, it will be administered by Dr Tan, a GMC registered doctor. Our clinic is one of the only aesthetic clinics in London registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), so you can be assured of our excellent standards of care and professionalism.
When Will I See the Results of PRP Hair Loss Therapy in London?
If you are considering PRP hair loss treatment, hair growth results only take a few weeks to become apparent. Optimal collagen regeneration can take up to three months, so hair growth will continue to improve. Results will vary between individuals, and most conditions require at least two to three sessions, between four to six weeks apart.
Is PRP Hair Loss Treatment Right for You?
You’ll be happy to know that PRP hair loss treatment in London at our clinic has little to no downtime, so you’ll be able to return to work the same day. The best time to get hair loss treatment is when you notice your hair is starting to look thinner. The sooner you start PRP treatment for hair loss, the better chance we have of stopping it in its tracks.
You may not qualify for PRP treatment due to medical reasons like having an active infection on the scalp, being systemically unwell, having uncontrolled diabetes, or severe anaemia. At our clinic in London, we only treat persons 18 years or older. Get in touch with us today so we can see if you are a good candidate for PRP therapy for hair restoration.
How Safe is PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
The good news is PRP therapy is a low-risk hair loss treatment plan, especially compared to alternative surgical or medication options. Because it only requires your own blood, there is an extremely low risk of an allergic reaction. There is a risk of infection, in particular when an inexperienced practitioner administers PRP treatment in an unsuitable environment or if the aftercare instructions are not followed correctly.
