Stimulate Hair Growth with PRP Hair Treatment in London

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (or PRP hair loss rejuvenation) is a cosmetic treatment where unique growth factors and proteins are retrieved from your blood, and then re-injected to rejuvenate the skin, and encourage hair growth in thinning hair.

PRP Is a Popular Hair Restoration Alternative to a Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is perhaps the most popular method of hair restoration for men, but it’s also an expensive and lengthy procedure. For many men, they either don’t want to commit the time and energy into the complex and difficult recovery, or they don’t want to invest huge amounts of money into something that may not take successfully.

PRP therapy is an alternative treatment for male pattern baldness and hair loss to traditional hair transplant surgery. It is a new and promising approach that is encouraging more men to take the leap into hair loss prevention.

What Makes PRP Hair Treatment Different?

The PRP treatment process is relatively quick, with minimal downtime, and the end result is visible and, most importantly, natural. There are no pharmaceutical products used and it’s not the traditional “surgical” procedure you might expect.

The science behind PRP is this. A small amount of blood (20ml) is taken from your arm in the same way as if you were having a blood test by your doctor. Then the PRP is made by placing a sample of your blood in a centrifuge. This centrifuge concentrates the platelets inside the blood, which are the specific cells rich in growth factors. These growth factors are what will encourage hair rejuvenation.

The PRP is then activated in vitro and injected back into your scalp to stimulate the tissue and encourage natural, faster hair growth. This treatment is precise and we inject the PRP into the exact locations of the head you want to target (if your hair follicle loss is occurring in a specific area).

PRP stimulates collagen production and triggers the skin-rejuvenation process. Although this therapy is particularly popular for rejuvenation of the face, it’s also frequently used on the scalp, for the promotion of hair growth.

Why Is PRP so Popular as a Treatment for Hair Loss?

PRP hair loss treatment before and after photos.Male pattern hair loss is common — 50% of men over the age of 50 will experience hair thinning to some extent. Many men are persuaded to take medication for treatment, but these prescriptions often cause erectile dysfunction — which is not a desirable side-effect. This is why PRP hair treatment therapy has become a popular hair restoration choice among men. It’s truly fascinating to witness how PRP works and the results it can produce.

What Is the PRP Hair Treatment Appointment Like?

The whole hair loss treatment procedure takes around 30-45 minutes, including injections, so it’s a short appointment time — many men see us at our Harley Street clinic during their lunch break, or after work. There’s no downtime needed, so you can return to your normal daily activities afterwards, with no problems.

There is no risk of allergy or rejection, as PRP is obtained from your body and is made from your blood.

During PRP treatment, your skin will be cleansed and disinfected. Topical numbing cream will be used to ensure comfort, which takes about 10 minutes to work. If needed, an ice pack and Arnica cream will be used to minimise bruising. Bruising risk is small as the needles used are tiny (i.e. 30G).

How Long Before PRP Treatment Produces Visible Results?

Results from this procedure are visible after three weeks, but optimal collagen regeneration for the skin on the scalp takes up to three months. The results typically last for as long as 18 months, after which you may want to book in for a follow-up appointment.

Effects may vary between individuals and it’s highly recommended to have three sessions for the first treatment, four weeks apart, for optimal stimulation. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have for maintenance, but we recommend a session every three to six months if possible.

What People Are Saying

A.O – Highbury

The venesection was painless to say the least, thank you for using local anaesthetics; highly recommended

J.H – Romford

‘I blast and cruise for years. When my haematocrit level went up, my GP did not seem to care and I couldn’t possibly wait for weeks to see a specialist. I am so lucky that to have found Harley Street MD through my research and it is the only clinic I have found that accept self-referral for therapeutic venesection due to AAS use.

Y.R – Vauxhall

I was recommended by my gym mate, I can’t thank you enough for sorting out my prolactin issue due to steroid use. You are a godsend.
