Hair Loss Treatment using PRP

What is normal hair loss?

It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day. That’s because our bodies continually grow new hair and shed old hair. This shedding is not a sign of hair loss. A receding hairline, bald spot, or overall thinning is a sign of hair loss. Hair loss can also show up in some surprising ways.

Hair Loss can happen if you have recently:

  • Had a baby
  • Recovered from a major illness or had surgery
  • Underwent cancer treatment
  • Lost 20 pounds or more
  • Developed a mild case of a disease called Alopecia areata which causes your immune system to attack your hair follicles
  • Got rid of psoriasis on your scalp

Dr Matla can tell you whether your hair may start to grow again on its own. While your hair may regrow on its own, he may recommend treatment to help it grow more quickly. Treatment can be essential to prevent further hair loss. Book a PRP Hair Loss Treatment Consultation near Cramlington with Dr Matla

PRP Hair Loss Treatment for Women

PRP Hair Loss treatment is suitable for both men and women. It helps to prevent hair loss and stimulate new hair growth. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) utilises your own blood platelets to stimulate hair growth. The purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles or newly implanted hair follicles into a new active growth phase.

PRP Treatment also provides nourishment to the thinning hair follicles. Our hair loss treatment is a non-surgical procedure that can result in a thicker fuller and healthier head of hair. It is a safe procedure with minimal side effects. At Dr Matla’s Aesthetics, you will only be treated by qualified medical professionals giving you peace of mind.

Testimonial

I went for a PRP hair loss treatment at the clinic in September. The doctor is so friendly and responsive. He took utmost care while treating. After treatment, my hair is healthy. I felt a boost in hair growth and my hair loss gradually reduced. Very happy with the experience. Pravallika Ganapavarapu

Why PRP Hair Loss Treatment?

PRP is a concentrated plasma that contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. Growth factors are essential for tissue regeneration and are commonly used in wound healing. This is essential for stimulating tissue regeneration, providing scaffolding for collagen synthesis, skin renewal, and cell growth. Platelet-rich plasma will accelerate the skin’s repair process resulting in a thicker dermis with softer fine lines and wrinkles, less scarring and improved skin tone.

Not only has PRP (platelet-rich plasma) played an essential role in sports medicine for several years prior to being introduced to aesthetic medicine. By stimulating collagen and elastin growth, the platelets can kick-start the healing process. A favourite treatment for many celebrities around the world.

When combined with hyaluronic acid fillers, the results can be even more magically renewing for the skin and hair.

PRP Hair loss FAQs

WHAT DOES PRP CONSIST OF AND HOW DOES IT HELP HAIR GROWTH?

Human blood is comprised primarily of red blood cells (RBC), as well as white blood cells (WBC), platelets, and plasma. By initiating the first step of coagulation, platelets are the key to the body’s ability to heal wounds. It is thought that by increasing the platelet count in a wounded area, the body’s healing to that area would be accelerated – explaining the use of PRP in wound healing. Its effects on promoting hair growth make it useful for the medical treatment of hair loss.

PRP is concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately 5x the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. This is significant because the Platelets in the PRP contain proteins that promote the rate of tissue healing and regeneration within inactive hair follicles. Inside these platelets are a variety of intracellular structures such as glycogen (a form of glucose), lysosomes (which break down the proteins) and alpha granules (which contain clotting and growth factors that get released during the cell repair process).

PRP-specific cells that cause hair growth

In particular, the PRP-specific cells that cause hair growth include:

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): Cell growth, collagen and blood vessel formation

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): For blood vessel formation

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF): for blood vessel, cell and skin formation

Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b): For a growth matrix between cells, bone metabolism.

Studies show that PRP can be a safe and effective hair loss treatment. PRP involves drawing a small amount of your blood, placing your blood into a machine that separates it into parts, and then injecting one part of your blood (the plasma) into the area with hair loss.

The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and usually doesn’t require any downtime.

You will need to return for repeat injections. Most patients return once a month for 3 months and then once every 3 to 6 months.

Within the first few months of treatment, you may notice that you are losing less or minimal amounts of hair.

HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT RESULTS FROM PRP HAIR LOSS TREATMENT?

After receiving Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy it may take a little time for you to begin to see results. It is also necessary to attend follow-up sessions, typically monthly appointments for the first 3 months and then a further session after three to six months. Yearly maintenance sessions will help to keep the treatment effective from then on.
Of course, factors such as the amount of hair loss and the density of growth will vary from patient to patient, and your medical practitioner will be able to advise how many appointments will specifically be necessary. Typically, you can expect to begin seeing results after a third or fourth appointment.

WHAT OTHER TREATMENTS OR SOLUTIONS ARE AVAILABLE AND HOW EFFECTIVE ARE THEY?

Minoxidil (Rogaine):

To use minoxidil, you apply it to the scalp as directed, usually once or twice a day.

Minoxidil can:

Stimulate hair growth
Prevent further hair loss

Microneedling:

Studies have shown that micro-needling can help stimulate hair growth. Men between the ages of 20 and 35 years old who had mild or moderate hereditary hair loss were treated with either:

5% minoxidil twice a day
5% minoxidil twice a day plus weekly micro-needling

Patients treated with minoxidil and micro-needling had significantly more hair growth.

Other studies have shown that using micro-needling along with another treatment, including platelet-rich plasma or a corticosteroid that you apply to the thinning area, helps improve hair growth.

Prescription medication for hair loss:

Finasteride (Propecia®):

FDA-approved this medication to treat male pattern hair loss. When taken as directed, finasteride can:

Slow down hair loss
Stimulate new hair growth

Spironolactone:

For women who have female pattern hair loss, this medication may be an option. It can:

Stop further hair loss
Increase hair thickness
Vitamins, minerals, and other supplements

Biotin, iron, or zinc prevents hair loss. You should only take biotin, iron, or zinc when your blood test shows that you have a deficiency. If your levels are normal, taking a supplement can be harmful.

Wigs and concealers

These cannot slow hair loss or help you regrow hair, they can boost your self-esteem. Another advantage is that a wig or concealer offers immediate results.

Hair transplant:

If you have an area of thinning or balding due to male (or female) pattern baldness, a hair transplant is an option. This can be an effective and permanent solution, but very expensive.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE

Not every type of hair loss can be treated, but a doctor may be able to prevent further hair loss. It can take months before you see results from treatment. No one treatment works for everyone, even two people with the same type of hair loss. Sometimes, hair loss is stubborn and requires trying different treatments before finding one that works.

WHY IS PRP SO POPULAR FOR HAIR LOSS TREATMENT

PRP is a a “natural” way to restore hair

Successfully PRP has been used for its healing properties in other areas of medicine over the years such as in joints and muscle tissues. It is also used as a cosmetic treatment for the face, where PRP is combined with micro-needling. This has been labelled the “Vampire Facelift” because it stimulates collagen and rejuvenates the face nonsurgically.

Another factor that makes PRP so popular for patients is that this is a “natural” way to restore hair. Most medications used to restore hair, such as Propecia, have significant side effects in men (such as erectile dysfunction). These medications are also contraindicated in women, especially those of childbearing age. PRP treatments can be used in tandem with hair transplantation to help accelerate hair growth. Treatments should be performed on average, every 4 to 6 weeks for three sessions. Most of the patients typically see new hair growth after the first 8-10 weeks. Nutritional supplements are also recommended as they can optimize the hair restoration process. Dr Matla will go over a comprehensive plan with you during your initial consultation.

ARE THERE ANY DOWNSIDES OF PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS?

There are minimal side effects related to Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss. As the treatment is non-invasive and uses the patient’s own blood, there is absolutely no recovery time required, and any discomfort caused by the treatment tends to pass almost immediately. Despite it being a relatively expensive treatment the remarkable safety record and promising outcomes, make it hugely popular.

However, it’s important for individuals considering PRP therapy to maintain realistic expectations regarding its efficacy. While PRP has demonstrated considerable success in stimulating hair regrowth, it’s crucial to understand that it represents an enhancement rather than a solution. Although PRP effectively combats hair loss, particularly in cases where it commenced within the last five years, patients should not anticipate dramatic regrowth. PRP’s effectiveness primarily lies in its ability to arrest and reverse hair loss rather than induce substantial new growth.

PRP FOR HAIR LOSS FOR BOTH MEN & WOMEN IN NEWCASTLE

PRP contains platelets concentrated up to 5x the normal blood value. Dr Matla then takes the PRP, also called “liquid gold” because of its colour, and injects it throughout the scalp. No medications are required pre or post-procedure. The PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate hair follicles and can be performed up to every month based on how much hair growth is required.

It is a great solution for both men and women, especially when hair transplant surgery is not an option. Injections can stimulate new hair growth in men who suffer from androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as male pattern baldness as well as women who suffer from this condition. Dr Matla targets the areas of the scalp where the hair is currently thinning. The procedure will take approximately 30 minutes from the time your blood is drawn until the PRP is injected into your scalp.
