You might have some questions regarding this treatment and that’s to be expected. At Nar London, PRP for hair loss is a common procedure. However, many people do not know much about it, despite the large media coverage.
Frequently asked questions for PRP for hair loss:
What is PRP for Hair Loss?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelet-rich plasma contains up to five times as many platelets in normal blood that circulates in your body. Additionally, PRP has other factors for growth and special proteins that promote hair growth. PRP started mainly with the professional Sports sector and has extended to skin rejuvenation and hair loss.
What Type of Treatment is PRP?
PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical treatment that is done in our practice in Harley Street. You can expect the treatment to take around an hour in most cases. We start by taking a small sample of your blood and putting it in a certified centrifuge in order to separate the platelet-rich plasma. And then, extract the enriched platelet and reinject them into your scalp.
Your scalp does not need to be numbed as we use a painless Mesogun U225. You will be given small injections of the PRP into your weak hair follicles. The treatment is non-invasive and isn’t painful, making it an easy procedure and one that you won’t need recovery for.
How Many PRP Treatments Are Needed?
In most cases 3 treatments with four to six weeks apart. However, this depends on the stage of your hair loss. You may be asked to come back to the clinic for a follow-up appointment, which is usually six months after your initial treatment. If the treatment is satisfying enough, you may be given treatments every six months or once a year should you wish to.
Can Anyone Have PRP Treatments?
Men and women can both have PRP for hair loss. You can have a free consultation at Nar London to determine if you’d make a good candidate for the PRP hair loss treatment.
How effective is PRP treatment?
Several scientific research has shown the benefits of PRP for Hair Loss. Though, It is important to say that PRP treatment for hair loss is relatively new, and more research surrounding this technique is still ongoing.
Nar London has been offering PRP to our clients for years and we can speak from our experience that we have seen very good results.
This being said, success rates can vary amongst patients.
Because depending on the individual, PRP hair loss treatment works better for some people and not so well for others. We do however know that PRP treatment is more likely to encourage hair growth in areas of the scalp where there is still a lot of miniaturized hair. It is unlikely to produce positive results when carried out on patches of the scalp that are already completely bald.
At Nar London, we advise on whether you are likely to be a suitable candidate for PRP treatment if we honestly believe there is a realistic chance of success using this technique. If this is not a suitable treatment for you we will give you alternative options. You can always book a free consultation.
Is PRP hair loss treatment a permanent solution?
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. PRP treatment has been shown to encourage hair growth and thicken hair in areas that have been treated. Response to PRP will differ between patients and it is not known exactly how long the benefits will persist.
Are There Any Risks for PRP Treatments?
At Nar London, we use the highly respected RegenLab PRP system which is an approved medical device by the European (CE Class IIb) and USA (FDA) Regulatory Authorities.
As PRP treatment uses your own blood, there are minimal concerns for safety and no significant side effects have so far been reported. You may experience slight inflammation at the injection site. This being said, we never experienced any bad reactions with our clients in years of practice at Nar London.
