PRP for Hair Loss

For many people, hair is intrinsically linked to identity and confidence. When we experience hair loss, it can be debilitating and harm our mental health. Hair loss occurs when the follicles remain dormant beneath the scalp, and no new hair is produced. If you are considering treatment, PRP for hair loss may be an option to consider. 

What causes hair loss?

Before looking at treatment, it helps to understand some of the most common causes of hair loss. If you are concerned, we recommend seeking medical help to identify and address any underlying medical conditions that may be impacting your hair.  

The most common cause of hair loss is family history and androgenic alopecia. This condition can impact both men and women and is usually attributed to natural hormone changes within the body. 

Here are some additional factors that can contribute to hair changes:

  • External Factors, including hair styling
  • Family history (heredity)
  • Medical conditions
  • Natural ageing
  • Hormonal changes
  • Medications

Now, for some excessive hair loss can leave visible bald patches on the scalp, for others, the hair may start to become a lot thinner. Luckily, there are specific treatments like PRP can help address hair loss, and stimulate new hair growth to help restore your confidence. 

What is PRP for Hair Loss?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is one of the most popular forms of treatment to address hair issues. It works by using nutrients found within your blood to harness your body’s natural healing abilities and produce collagen, to encourage dormant hair follicles to produce new hair. 

The human blood contains several key nutrients that each help to support overall body functionality. These nutrients include:

  • Platelets – that help to support coagulation
  • Plasma – that carries water, salts, and enzymes around the body
  • Growth factors – which are specific proteins that support overall health. 

Treatment involves separating these key components from the blood and injecting them directly into the scalp. The first step is to draw blood from your arm, like a blood test. This blood is then placed in a special centrifuge which spins the blood to separate the nutrients to be injected. 

Typically, patients require around 40-50 shots per session. It is recommended that you undergo at least three treatments, spaced eight weeks apart to see the best results. As hair growth can take time, the results of PRP for hair loss may not be instantaneous. Most people begin to see new growth after around six weeks. 

To maintain results, we may advise you to return for regular maintenance treatments each year.  

PRP  typically takes around 40 minutes to complete and it is known as a non-invasive treatment. As it uses nothing but your blood, it carries very little risk of infection, making it one of the safest aesthetic treatments on the market, for everybody. 

However, there are some medical conditions for which PRP treatment isn’t recommended, including some cancers, cardiovascular diseases, Aids, and HIV. The treatment is also not recommended during pregnancy.
