PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a leading non-surgical hair loss treatment for both men and women
In males and females, hair loss can be upsetting, and people often experience a loss of confidence. We at Hillside Hair Clinic understand this and have the experience of treating hair loss using a non-surgical procedure called PRP.
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.

PRP is the latest advanced non-surgical hair loss treatment. Have it on its own or combine it with microneedling for a synergistic effect, that further enhances results.
How does PRP for hair loss works?
PRP hair loss treatment is a simple 3-step procedure, which we'll illustrate to you below:
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 centrifuge and gel separation technique which 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.
