PRP LONDON CLINIC
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy exists for more than a decade. PRP is efficiently used in various medical treatments including treating hair loss. This is one of the most popular non-invasive hair loss treatments on the market today. In fact, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure for hair regrowth. It is widely used for treating thinning hair and slowing or stopping the progression of hair loss. That is why it is also referred to as the Golden liquid because of its colour and its impact.
This is due to the benefits of a high concentration of platelets in plasma vs normal blood. The platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors (such as TGF-beta, PDGF-AB, bFGF, IGF, VEGF, and EGF) and bioactive proteins (globulin, albumin, fibrinogen), nutrients, vitamins, hormones as well as electrolytes. All of that helps accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.
Losing excessive hair can be very distressing and can have an impact on your confidence. Thankfully, PRP hair loss treatment can be effective and potentially a good option. Learn more about Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment for hair loss and hair thinning issues.
Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration
The PRP contains three to five times the number of platelets in natural blood, and these platelets contain growth factors that are known to be effective for wound healing. A new development in regenerative medicine, PRP is now being used in various applications, including cosmetic treatments to help skin regenerate and stay young and firm, in addition to stimulating natural hair growth in men and women with thinning hair. If you feel your hair is showing signs of thinning or receding, perhaps it’s time to schedule a free hair loss consultation at Nar London, Harley Street.
Some patients do not want to undergo a hair transplant procedure. Others are experiencing the early stages of thinning and hair loss and are looking for a natural, non-invasive treatment. PRP hair restoration is a regenerative therapy used to stimulate healthy cell growth. As the PRP develops from your blood, there is no concern about adverse reactions to the treatment. As we age, the hair follicles’ hair quality can diminish, with strands becoming finer and thinner. Aging hair follicles stop producing thick, healthy hair, or eventually, any hair at all – but they are still present in the scalp. At Nar London in Harley Street, our PRP hair restoration is a treatment geared towards regenerating existing hair follicles, allowing them to produce thicker, healthier strands.
Understanding PRP for Hair Loss
In the past few years, doctors began to introduce PRP therapy in treating hair loss as research has shown that the high concentration of platelets in plasma is efficient to regrow hair in both men and women suffering from excessive hair loss, hair thinning and pattern baldness.
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.
At Nar London, we have helped thousands of people regrow hair using the PRP technique.
