PRP Hair treatment
At British Hair Clinic, we are excited to announce a new non-surgical treatment option for hair loss, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy as a treatment option for male and female hair loss.
PRP treatment is a non-surgical safe option for patients experiencing hair loss. Blood is taken from the patient’s arm and then spun in a machine called a centrifuge. The spinning separates the blood into two sections. The section we call PRP contains special cells called Platelets and growth factors that can cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special platelet cells promote healing, accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, as well as improve response to injury and formation of new cellular growth. It is this PRP that is re-injected into the treatment area (see illustrated image).
The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. PRP treatment is an evidence-based procedure supported by positive results in clinical research looking at the effects of PRP therapy in hair restoration.
