Before & After
PRP Treatment for Hair Loss
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or ‘PRP’ hair treatment works to stimulate hair growth and combat hair loss. It works by drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood, and injecting or rubbing the blood into the scalp. because of this, PRP hair treatment is sometimes given the nickname ‘PRP Vampire’ therapy.
PRP is a non-surgical procedure with no side effects, available at our Regrow Hair clinic.

PRP – HAIR RESTORATION PROCESS
PRP and hair growth factors
PRP is a ‘stimulator’, meaning it works to stimulate the hair growth cycle. Other stimulators include topical Minoxidil and Low Level Laser Therapy.
Is PRP Safe?
The answer is: very. It is entirely safe to re-inject a patient’s own blood. The procedure is performed by our trained and qualified medical team in our sterile clinic treatment department and only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. And of course, all of the equipment we use is 100% disposable.
The PRP hair restoration method is similar in execution to the Facial PRP or ‘Vampire Facelift’ method of skin rejuvenation.

PRP treatment for hair loss is a non-invasive therapy for hair growth. The therapy uses your own blood which undergoes centrifugation to isolate the platelet-rich plasma which is then re-injected into the areas affected by hair loss. Platelets are used by the body to form blood clots and other growth healing functions. Because of this, injecting platelet-rich plasma into the site of hair loss can stimulate growth at the site, reactivating hair growth.
The sensation of PRP treatment will vary depending on pain threshold – we’ve had patients who found it therapeutic and others who found it uncomfortable. If a patient struggles with the pain, we can administer a number cream to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. PRP also requires zero recovery time and you can resume your daily routine straight after the procedure.
PRP therapy tends to improve hair quality and growth for around four to six weeks, requiring follow-up appointments once a month for four months to see the best results. We also advise patients receive further treatment three to six months after to maintain the results and continue boosting hair growth.
Results can usually be seen around six to nine months after PRP hair treatment, with studies showing that patients who receive the treatment note higher hair count, thicker hair and hair root strength.
Choosing the best procedure for you will be dependent on your circumstances. Those who are good candidates for hair transplant who are happy to have the surgery may find better results from FUE or DHI. For those who aren’t good candidates for transplant or aren’t interested in the surgery, PRP offers a natural, non-invasive opportunity. Those who aren’t good candidates can be those whose hair loss is considerable or those whose hair loss is only minimal as both candidates may not enjoy significant success from transplantation.
Since PRP hair treatment intends to reactivate hair growth, anybody experiencing hair loss may benefit from PRP treatment. The treatment can be effective at recovering some hair naturally for those with significant hair loss but the treatment generally works better for those whose hair loss is minimal.
