WHY LONDON LOVES PRP HAIR TREATMENT?
Are you looking for PRP Hair Loss Treatment in London?
As you know, millions of men and women in London and globally are experiencing hair thinning, receding hairline, and hair loss. As a matter of fact, those conditions can be very distressing and even traumatic for many. Thankfully, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for men and women experiencing hair loss, receding hairline, and hair thinning.
When the strands of hair become thinner and thinner as we age is a phenomenon called follicular miniaturization. Not only the strands of hair become thinner but also more brittle, shorter, and weaker with each successive phase of the hair cycle. In fact, this natural process is one of the most common conditions that can potentially lead to pattern baldness.
PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
As briefly stated, hair follows a natural cycle and it is actually normal to lose some hair daily. However, the issue becomes a concern if the loss is too excessive. If that is your case then you might be interested in Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment. Indeed, PRP hair growth restoration involves injecting the scalp with platelets and other growth factors that we obtain from the patient’s own blood to restore miniaturised follicles and stimulate hair growth.
The goal of PRP hair is to stimulate hair follicles for healthier, stronger hair growth. As a matter of fact, hair follicles that are not growing may actually be dormant and not dead. Henceforth, the potent rich growth factors in PRP can stimulate stem cells in non-producing hair follicles. As a consequence, PRP promotes cell growth and encourages new blood vessels to carry nutrients to regenerate follicles. In short, this is a natural process that uses powerful growth factors of your own body to generate hair growth.
Our goal at Nar London is to provide patients with the best PRP hair treatment in London, UK.
Process for Platelet-Rich Plasma
So, we harness PRP (platelet-rich plasma) from the patient’s own blood. The procedure is as follows:
- First, a small sample of blood is drawn in a similar manner as a routine blood test.
- The blood is spun in a dedicated centrifuge to separate out the platelets and rich growth factors.
- We subsequently inject the PRP substance into the scalp area to stimulate hair follicle growth.
Should I consider PRP for hair?
In our view, the benefits of PRP are manifold:
- Natural & Non-Surgical: As PRP solution is obtained by the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of cross-contamination or allergic reactions. If you are looking for a leading natural, proven non-surgical treatment for hair regrowth then PRP is a great option.
- Proven treatment: Dealing with hair growth is difficult and PRP should not be seen as a miracle cure. However, PRP therapy can help boost hair follicles on the scalp. In fact, PRP can help reinvigorate hair follicles, and the results are visible a few months after treatment. Please note that the results can vary from person to person.
- Virtually no down Time: Though, there could be slight swelling and soreness that can last for 24 hours. In most cases, however, most patients can go back to their daily activities after treatment.
- Not Painful: PRP scalp injections at Nar London are usually not painful as we use the painless U225 Mesogun.
What are the Growth Factors in Platelets?
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF-aa, PDGF-ab, PDGF-bb)
- Stimulates cell replication

- Enhances epithelialization
- Increases granulation tissue formation
Transforming Growth Factor (TGF-ß1, TGF-ß2)
- Promotes formation of extracellular matrix
- Regulates bone cell metabolism
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
- Promotes angiogenesis
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
- Promotes cell differentiation and stimulates
- Re-epithelialisation, angiogenesis and collagenase activity
Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
- Promotes proliferation of endothelial cells & fibroblasts
- Stimulation of angiogenesis
How do you inject PRP Hair?
Most clinics use a local anesthetic to numb the target areas of the scalp as they do the procedure manually with a syringe which can be quite painful on the scalp. However, at Nar London, we use the U225 Mesogun to ensure a relatively painless experience.
Thanks to the U225, we inject the PRP substance into the scalp, concentrating on the areas that display the most severe hair loss. Progressively, PRP can improve hair thinning and hair loss conditions by stimulating hair follicle growth.
Any Advice Before PRP Hair Treatment?
The success of the treatment is highly correlated with the quality of your platelets and growth factors. In a word, the goods come from within you. Therefore, we recommend not smoking and avoiding drinking alcohol as long as you can before treatment. Moreover, eat healthily and drink plenty of water and other healthy juices. Ultimately adopting a healthy lifestyle is valuable for your overall health and not just for the PRP procedure.
What to Expect After PRP Hair Treatment?
Most patients experience minimal discomfort after PRP hair restoration injections. Though, there may be temporary very mild swelling of the scalp after the procedure. If that is the case, you should avoid strenuous physical activity until the swelling has completely subsided. Also, you should avoid washing your hair for 24 hours post-treatment.
How long does the procedure take?
You should expect the PRP treatment to be done in about 60 minutes. It could take a little bit more time if combined with mesotherapy.
What Results can I expect?
Tackling hair loss is difficult and takes time and one should not expect a quick fix. Many patients at our clinic achieve dramatic, long-lasting results after PRP treatment. This said it varies from person to person.
Most studies have shown that patients see the new hair growth and improvement in density and thickness a few months after a PRP hair procedure. Though, we recommend having several sessions to enhance the chances of results. Moreover, the growth does not happen overnight and we recommend waiting between three to eight months before optimal results are visible. Furthermore, we also recommend having one or two maintenance sessions per year. The fact is that less thinning, a fuller head of hair, and a majority of patient satisfaction indicate that PRP therapy is an effective and safe treatment for hair restoration.
Combination of PRP & Mesotherapy
We recommend combining PRP with Mesotherapy to enhance the results. In sum, PRP utilises your own growth factors to stimulate follicle recovery and growth. Mesotherapy rejuvenates the scalp thanks to its powerful vitamin mixture that we apply through micro-injections. Henceforth, this potent combination can foster hair follicle development and achieve optimal results.
Can I have PRP hair?
Well, anyone can benefit from PRP therapy for hair even as a prevention treatment. This said PRP can help those experiencing hair loss and hair thinning. In addition, PRP therapy often benefits conditions such as androgenetic alopecia, traction alopecia, male pattern hair loss, and female pattern hair loss.
However, there are contraindications related to some health conditions that prevent having this treatment. These include but are not limited to platelet dysfunction syndrome, critical thrombocytopenia, hemodynamic instability, and septicemia. You can speak with our practitioner if you have one condition that should be assessed.
