PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a leading non-surgical hair loss treatment for both men and women
PRP is a new and innovative hair loss treatment that requires no surgery but can help stimulate hair growth. It requires taking a small blood sample, less than what you'd normally give when donating blood. This blood sample is harvested using the latest, most advanced technology and then injected back into your scalp where hair is thinning. A few short treatment sessions are required but PRP may prevent the need for a hair transplant and there is no aftercare needed for this procedure. PRP treatments tend to be an hour long and patients can go about normal activities immediately after. Want to learn more then get in touch to discuss whether it could work for you.
What is PRP therapy for hair loss?
Platelets within blood plasma contain a large number of growth factors. These growth factors stimulate dormant hair follicles and also produce an increased amount of collagen. This in turn thickens the hair resulting in an attractive full-head of hair.
PRP therapy involves taking a blood sample and using a machine to separate the platelets from the blood. The platelets are then injected into the scalp where hair thinning and balding is occurring.
Breakthrough clinical trials and research conducted in 2018 on the benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) for patients with Alopecia and other dermatological conditions, were able to evidence positive outcomes; adding further weight to the excellent first-hand results we witness each week in patients choosing to undertake PRP treatment with us.
Dr Rapaport, a leading Dermatologist in the US, recently referred to this latest body of evidence and how PRP is regarded as a highly effective treatment for hair loss, within an article published by The American Academy of Dermatology Association.

How does a PRP hair loss treatment work?
PRP hair loss treatment is a simple 3-step procedure, which we'll illustrate to you below:
Separate Platelets in a Centrifuge
Firstly blood is collected from the patient. Platelets are separated in a centrifuge and then they are injected into the scalp. It’s as quick and simple as that. To ensure that you do not feel any pain or discomfort, we use a very fine needle, called the invisible needle to carry out the treatment. Once treatment is done, you can return to work immediately as no sedation is required.
At Hillside Hair clinic, we use the most recent FDA approved Cellenis PRP system. The centrifuge and gel separation technique produces a high-quality concentration of PRP enriched with maximum growth factors. These are key to producing the best outcome. The growth factors allow the anagen phase of hair growth to be prolonged, minimizing the damage caused during the catagen phase, hence allowing for maximum effect when the growth cycle is restarted.
What our patients have to say about us...
Crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve
Really happy with my initial consultation with Regina. Regina not only took me through the whole process step by step but crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve with my hair density.
Initially I was advised I would be looking at a hair transplant but after trying PRP I was advised I wouldn’t need a hair transplant as my hair has responded really well to PRP. I am so incredibly happy with the service and result from hillside hair clinic I can’t recommend them enough.
I can not speak highly enough of the staff at Hillside. Dr Ali was open and honest with me from the start about what was achievable and what to expect. The after care is second to none, there is always someone available on the other end of the phone anytime I need any advice.
I attended the Hillside Nottingham Clinic today. Very relaxing environment, impressive and knowledgeable clinic manager, Regina. Premium Hair Transplant Clinic.
I am truly amazed by the level of care and quality of treatment and I would highly recommend this hair clinic to anyone. All the team at the clinic are brilliant & caring, they provide all the information you need & the level of after care is far better than any other clinic.
