PRP Therapy For Hair Loss
Androgenetic Alopecia or ‘male pattern-baldness’ is a common cause of hair loss that affects both men and woman, and is often linked to depression and low self-esteem. PRP was recently developed as an effective treatment.
An independent study of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia over a one-year period by Dr Gkini and colleagues found that PRP was an effective treatment for both men and women, with a high patients’ satisfaction rating and without remarkable adverse effects. A similar independent study of PRP’s effectiveness by Dr Khatu and colleagues reveals the same findings, calling PRP a “simple, cost-effective and feasible treatment option for hair loss” with an “excellent safety profile” at relatively low cost.

What will happen when I visit the clinic?
You will be given a full, no-obligation consultation with a clinician, to assess you and discuss your options as well as any concerns you may have. After this, we can draw up a schedule for treatment.
The PRP Procedure
Research shows that PRP is a very safe treatment, unlikely to cause side effects. Treatment is offered with a full consultation to discuss any concerns, and full monitoring and support throughout.
A course of treatment is necessary. Studies found the hair pull test became negative about four sessions.
We use a numbing cream for injections which are made using a very fine needle. A minority may experience a mild pain feeling and increased scalp sensitivity after injections. Treatment is fully monitored and takes place in comfortable surroundings.
