Non-Surgical Solution To Hair Loss

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.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Loss Treatment?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a modern approach to treating male and female hair loss and hair thinning. It is a fantastic non-surgical treatment to help strengthen hair. The process involves taking a blood sample from the patient (20mls or more) and placing the blood into a centrifuge machine. The centrifuge spins the blood at very high, carefully calibrated speeds so that the blood can separate into its different compartments. The plasma (clear-yellow liquid) contains tiny blood cells called platelets which are vital for growth and repair.

The separated plasma containing a high concentration of platelets (i.e. Platelet Rich) is then carefully extracted and injected back into the scalp. Once in the scalp, the platelets release the growth factors which help repair, vascularise and strengthen the hair follicles.

PRP For Skin Rejuvenation

PRP Cosmetic Rejuvenation

PRP Cosmetic Rejuvenation works pretty much the same way. Once injected into your skin, the platelets will accelerate the normal healing process and stimulate the body to produce new collagen (what tendons are made of) at the injected area. Here’s the list of cosmetic procedures commonly performed with PRP:

  • – Wrinkle improvement: fine wrinkles, eye wrinkles, wrinkles around mouth, forehead wrinkles.
  • – Skin pores and elasticity: reduction of skin pore size, improvement in skin elasticity and skin tone.
  • – Skin pigmentation disorders: skin whitening against hyper-pigmentation such as freckles, skin blemish, etc.
  • – Other applications: improvement in hair loss, chapped skin, burn wound, dark circle, etc

 

Does PRP Treatment Hurt?

Every patient has a differently level of sensitiveness in the scalp so each person responds differently. The PRP solution can cause a mild stinging sensation in some people so it is often given with local anaesthetic to help reduce the discomfort.
