IS PRP TREATMENT A SOLUTION FOR MALE HAIR LOSS?
PRP FOR MEN
Discover how your own blood can help improve your hairline.
In fact, PRP is nothing new and has been used in medicine for a long time especially in the elite sports sector to treat wounds. It consists of your own blood being centrifuged to separate it into its components of red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which is where the healing abilities reside. It is now also used to treat hair loss and a great non-surgical option.
Can PRP help with male pattern baldness?
It can help to reduce the amount of hair loss and thicken existing hair. The procedure takes about one hour and is quite painless. The “liquid gold”, contains a lot of growth factors and cytokines that help to promote healing. And then it’s injected into the scalp. Do not worry, at Nar London, we do not use painful needles to inject! We use the renowned painless U225 mesogun. It also allows us to reach different areas of the scalp without making you suffer from pain.
With PRP, platelets are about five times more concentrated in PRP than in regular blood and henceforth richer. The concentration of platelets is important. Because platelets secrete growth factors that are thought to assist in wound healing and tissue regrowth.
Can You explain the PRP Procedure?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for hair loss is a treatment involving taking a small quantity of blood from a patient, separating out the growth factors and other bioactive proteins using a dedicated centrifuge. The enriched plasma is then injected into the scalp areas at the level of the hair follicle. Consequently, the platelets are rich in growth factors and help stimulate the hair follicles and promote new hair regrowth.
The PRP injection goes across the scalp, approximately every cm, over the area of thinning hair. The technique is meticulous and involves minimal discomfort as we use the painless U225 mesogun. Moreover, there is little to no downtime after the PRP treatment and it is totally safe.
At Nar London, Harley Street clinic, we use Swiss Regen Lab tubes and centrifuges for the PRP protocol. Swiss Regen Lab products are of high quality and have one of the highest platelet concentration factor procedures used in London. We have helped thousands of people regrow hair using the PRP technique.

If the treatment is satisfying enough, you may be given treatments every six months or once a year should you wish to.

PRP treatment for hair loss when successful will provide long-lasting results. We advise having maintenance sessions every six to twelve months to continue producing positive results.
