PRP Hair Treatment for Alopecia
What is PRP?
Are you looking for an effective non-surgical hair loss treatment? PRP hair works as a standalone alopecia treatment or synergistically with microneedling. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a leading non-surgical hair treatment for alopecia for men and women.
PRP is a new and innovative hair loss treatment that requires no surgery but can help stimulate hair growth. It requires taking a small blood sample, less than what you’d typically give when donating blood. This blood sample is harvested using the latest, most advanced technology and then injected back into your scalp where hair is thinning.
A few short treatment sessions are required, but PRP may prevent a hair transplant, and no aftercare is needed for this procedure. PRP treatments tend to be an hour long, and patients can go about everyday activities immediately after. Want to learn more, then get in touch to discuss whether it could work for you.
What is PRP hair treatment for alopecia?
Platelets within blood plasma contain many growth factors. These growth factors stimulate dormant hair follicles and produce increased collagen. This thickens the hair, resulting in an attractive full head of hair.
PRP therapy involves taking a blood sample and using a machine to separate the platelets from the blood. The platelets are injected into the scalp in the thinning hair areas.
Breakthrough clinical trials and research conducted in 2018 on the benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) for patients with Alopecia and other dermatological conditions were able to evidence positive outcomes, adding further weight to the excellent first-hand results we witness each week in patients choosing to undertake PRP treatment with us.
In an article published by The American Academy of Dermatology Association, leading Dermatologists have referred to this latest body of evidence and how PRP is regarded as a highly effective treatment for hair loss.

How does a PRP hair loss treatment work?
PRP hair loss treatment is a simple 3-step procedure, which is as follows:
- Collect Blood
- Separate Platelets in a Centrifuge
- Inject PRP
Firstly, blood is collected from the patient. Platelets are separated in a centrifuge machine, and then they are injected into the scalp. It’s as quick and straightforward as that. To ensure that you do not feel any pain or discomfort, we use a fine needle called the invisible hand to complete the treatment. Once treatment is done, you can return to work immediately, as no sedation is required.
At our clinics, we use the FDA-approved PRP treatment. The centrifuge and gel separation technique produces a high-quality concentration of PRP enriched with maximum growth factors. These are key to making the best outcome. The growth factors allow the anagen phase of hair growth to be prolonged, minimizing the damage caused during the catagen phase and enabling maximum effect when the growth cycle is restarted.
