Hair Loss Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a simple, safe, non -surgical procedure which is used to slow or stop hair loss and promotes the growth of stronger thicker hair. The procedure is suitable for both men and women. The patient’s own plasma, which is rich in platelets, is injected using a very fine needle into the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles to promote hair growth. Patients can return to normal activities straight away after the procedure. Results may be seen as soon as two months following the treatment.
About your treatment
The treatment is performed in three stages within this appointment. Firstly some blood will be taken from you, usually from your arm. Secondly the doctor will spin the blood sample in a Centrifuge to separate out the plasma rich platelets. This takes just a matter of minutes. Then the doctor will use a micro-needle to inject the platelets into the area to be treated. The procedure will take around 60 minutes in total. Your follow up treatments will be booked at monthly intervals.
Typically patients need three to six treatments initially with follow up, top up maintenance treatments every six months. A personalised treatment plan will be set up for you as you may need more, or less treatments to achieve your desired result.
What to expect after the treatment
During the procedure there may be some minor discomfort.
After the treatment you may have a small amount of swelling and possibly some redness around the injection sites, this should clear in approximately 12 hours. There may be a small amount of bruising also but this should clear within two – three days. Infection is very rare. Recovery is very quick and you can immediately return to everyday activities, although it is advisable to avoid strenuous activity and alcohol in the first 24 hours following the procedure.
Who can have the treatment?
The procedure is suitable for men and women who are suffering from hair loss or thinning. Younger people just starting with hair loss will have notable increase in the thickness of their hair. Patients with moderate or advanced hair loss usually notice a lessening of the hair loss or it can be halted.
Patients who are on blood thinning medications unfortunately are not suitable for this type of treatment.
