Hair Loss Treatments

PRP treatments have been around for a long time in facial aesthetics and orthopaedics.  The use of this treatment to stimulate new hair growth in areas where hair has been lost, for example in female pattern baldness and androgenic alopecia, has become an exciting and successful option for this problematic complaint.  Over this last few years, PRP treatments for hair loss have gained significant popularity as a step between using propecia and hair transplant surgery.  Results are generally impressive, with some studies showing between 20-60% increase in thickness and cover of hair in areas treated.   Dr. David Jack offers PRP treatments for hair loss at his clinics in Harley Street in London and in Edinburgh.

This treatment involves is taking a small sample of your own blood, which is then centrifuged to isolate the platelets contained in the sample.  These are then reinjected under local anaesthetic into the scalp where there has been hair loss.  The act of injecting into the skin causes the platelets to activate and release a large quantities of growth factors – these go on to stimulate hair follicles.  As a result, the follicles are stimulated to start producing thicker, stronger hair, and dormant follicles are stimulated to start producing hairs again.

Usually at least 3 treatments are required, spaced about 3-4 weeks apart.  If you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Jack about PRP for hair loss in Harley Street, London or Edinburgh, please do not hesitate to contact us.
