What Is PRP Hair Treatment?

Platelet-rich plasma has been demonstrated to be a successful regenerative therapy for a wide range of medical conditions, including dermatology, dentistry and orthopaedics. Dr. Chia Tan, the founder of Harley Street MD, is a recognised specialist in platelet-rich plasma therapy (or PRP hair loss rejuvenation) and aesthetic treatments. This unique clinical treatment uses plasma from your blood to stimulate hair growth and prevent future hair loss. The PRP hair growth injection treatment process is quick and produces fast and visible results that appear natural. No pharmaceutical products are used, and it’s a non-invasive procedure with minimal discomfort and downtime. 

Hair Loss Treatment Options

If you have noticed your hair getting thinner or your hairline receding, you are one of 7.4 million men in the UK who are losing their hair at any one time. Two-thirds of all men go on to experience male pattern baldness. Hair loss is often dismissed as a minor issue, but it can have a huge impact on your confidence and psychological well-being. Various hair loss treatments have been proven to work; a few of the most popular options include:

MedicationTopical treatments such as minoxidil (Rogaine) and oral medications finasteride (Propecia) can be effective, but hair loss medication has numerous associated side effects. The most common side effects include erectile dysfunction, upper and lower respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, nausea, abdominal pain and weight increase.

Hair transplants — Surgically transplanting hair can be a successful way of combating male baldness. As with all surgery, there are risks of infection and scarring after a hair transplant. PRP hair treatment could be an excellent option if hair loss is getting you down and you’re struggling to find a solution that works for you.

PRP hair treatment — The injected plasma used in PRP hair rejuvenation treatment works by introducing platelets to targeted areas. This improves the blood supply to damaged hair follicles, which helps stimulate and maintain healthy hair growth.

Who Is the Best Candidate for PRP Hair Treatment?

Anyone experiencing hair loss may find that PRP hair rejuvenation treatments work for them. Men with early hair loss tend to get very good results, and the sooner you start treatment, the better. If you have PRP for hair loss when you first notice your hair thinning, you will have a greater chance of stopping hair loss in its tracks.

Although there are no associated side effects, you might not be able to receive PRP hair treatment if you:

Have been diagnosed with platelet disorders

Take medications that inhibit platelet function

Have an active infection on the scalp

Suffer from uncontrolled diabetes

Have severe anaemia.

PRP Hair Rejuvenation Timeline

PRP treatment for hair loss can produce results that are as effective as hair transplants but without the risks associated with surgery. To get the most effective hair rejuvenating outcomes, an initial round of four PRP treatments is recommended. 

The majority of individuals will undergo four PRP hair treatment sessions at scheduled four to six-week intervals. Following the third PRP hair rejuvenation session, the requirement for additional treatments will be determined. All consultations on hair loss and PRP injections are handled by Dr. Tan.

How Long Does PRP Hair Treatment Take to Produce Results?

Results from PRP hair rejuvenation treatment are generally visible after three weeks, but optimal collagen regeneration takes up to three months. To maintain optimal regrowth, many patients decide to have maintenance PRP hair treatments twice a year once the series is completed.

Effects may vary between individuals, and we highly recommend three sessions of PRP hair rejuvenation, 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 for the best results.

The PRP Hair Treatment Process

So, how does PRP hair rejuvenation work? Before PRP treatment for hair loss, your skin will be cleansed and disinfected. We will use topical numbing cream to ensure comfort, which takes about 10 minutes to work. An ice pack and Arnica cream will be provided if needed to minimise bruising. The risk of bruising is small as the needles used are tiny (i.e. 30G).

The PRP hair growth injection procedure takes around 30 to 45 minutes, including the injections. Many men see us at our Harley Street clinic in London for PRP hair loss treatment during their lunch break or after work. No downtime is needed, so you can return to your normal daily activities immediately following treatment.

We’ve outlined the three-step PRP hair loss treatment below:

Step One: Before the Procedure

A small amount of blood (20ml) is taken from your arm the same way as if you were having a blood test by your doctor. A blood sample is then put into a centrifuge, a machine used to separate fluids of different densities. The centrifuge separates the plasma, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is isolated and ready to be injected. PRP contains specific cells rich in growth factors that stimulate hair growth.

Step Two: The PRP Hair Treatment Procedure

The PRP is injected 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 occurs in a specific area).

Step Three: After the Procedure

Complications and Side Effects of PRP Treatment for Hair Loss

There is no risk of allergy or rejection, as PRP is obtained from your body and is made from your blood. As with any treatment involving injections, there is a small risk of side effects, including:

Mild bruising

Mild swelling (usually subsides within 48 hours)

Infection (you might need antibiotics).
