Hair Loss

Left Quetos I had not fully appreciated just how balding I was on my crown until my wife started telling me to 'cover up your bald patch' and showed me it in the mirror. I was quite shocked and spoke to a friend who recommended that I talk to Sandown Dental. Frankly I am amazed and thrilled by the results. Right Quetos

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical procedure for hair regrowth, best used for treating thinning hair and slowing or stopping the progression of hair loss. Hair loss can affect both men and women, impacting on self-esteem and causing embarrassment.

Hair Loss

The main cause of hair loss is genetic but it can also be a result of extreme stress or a medical condition or treatment. PRP treatment can tackle male and female pattern baldness as it encourages the growth of existing hair follicles, increasing hair volume, density and fullness without surgery. It is totally natural, using your own platelets to stimulate hair growth.

Our treatment

At Sandown Skin Clinic we use Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF), the most scientifically researched PRP therapy, which is 100% safe. We have been performing PRP therapy for hair loss for over five years with successful results.

We use the most sophisticated meso-injector on the market, widely recognised as the gold standard, allowing faster injection and therefore reducing discomfort and inflammation.

PRP and hair transplant surgery

PRP treatment is encouraged pre and post hair transplant surgery to:

  • preserve and enhance hair follicle viability after transplant
  • promote and enhance tissue repair and healing after transplant
  • reinvigorate dormant hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth.

The Procedure

1. Collect Blood

A small volume of your blood is taken, similar to that taken at a routine blood test. It is placed into a centrifuge machine, which separates your plasma from the rest of your blood. Concentrated in the plasma are your platelets, which are cells responsible for tissue regeneration and rejuvenation

2. Separate The Platelets

The platelet rich plasma is then injected into the scalp using a mesotherapy injector. This stimulates and reactivates the dormant of weakened hair follicles

3. Extract Platelet-Rich Plasma

The treatment takes an hour and there is minimal discomfort involved

4. Inject To The Inured Area

Three initial treatments are recommended, with four weeks between each treatment. Thereafter a maintenance treatment is recommended every 6 months.

The treatment is not suitable if you have no hair follicles. Other factors may make the treatment unsuitable, for example, if you have had cancer treatment in the last year.

We offer a free consultation for any patient considering the treatment, to make sure you are suitable and to discuss your own individual treatment plan.
