PRP Hair Treatment London

PRP hair treatment (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) uses your own body to promote new and healthy hair growth. Increasing your hair thickness, PRP is well suited to giving you a fuller look.

Whether you’re looking to supplement your hair transplant with further treatments, or a little unsure about more invasive hair transplant methods, PRP is fantastic at fighting the effects of hair loss. Contact us today for more information and to book your free consultation!

On this page, you’ll be able to find out:

How does PRP Treatment work?

Each PRP hair treatment for hair loss is usually carried out over the course of 4-6 weeks, with three treatments. Between 4 and 6 months after, a number of maintenance treatments may also be offered to maximise hair regrowth.

If you were to take a blood sample, the largest component in this would be plasma. Plasma is a mixture of water and protein and offers a home to other components of your blood (such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets). Platelets are wound-healing blood cells that cause your blood to clot! Both plasma and platelets are fundamental to PRP therapy.

During the treatment, a small amount of your own blood is taken (typically 20-30ml) and is then put into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins your blood around at high speeds separating all the different components from your blood. Having separated your blood, the plasma part is then taken and injected back into the areas of hair loss of your scalp. The “healing” part of your own body is used to treat hair thinning!

PRP therapy and process

Why get PRP Hair Treatment?

PRP hair treatments are designed for patients concerned with the thickness of their hair. If you, like many, are suffering from the effects of hair thinning or early pattern hair loss, PRP can help you maintain your hair density and promote new hair growth.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is also useful for those unable to go through surgery. This treatment is less invasive than most hair transplantation methods. Whether you’re looking to hide your hair transplant a little easier, or just concerned about a more invasive method, PRP treatments can successfully bridge the gap.

Equally, if you’ve already had a hair transplant, PRP injections can be a fantastic way to make sure that you’re making the most of your hair restoration journey! increasingly the blood supply to your young hair follicles can increase the thickness of the hair on your scalp.

PRP therapy is also suitable for men and women! Whilst other methods, such as beard or eyebrow transplants tend to appeal to one gender or the other, PRP therapy can be carried out on anyone. As has already been stated, PRP works by using your blood to nurture your own hair follicles.

What are the results of PRP Hair Treatment?

Results for PRP treatment usually take between 3 to 3.5 months to start showing fully. Moreover, success rates are also dependent upon the number of treatments you undergo. The more treatments you have, the better results you will see as the effects are cumulative.

Don’t just take our word for it, have a look at the results from clinical research! In a 2015 study (source), all 10 patients, who had undergone multiple PRP injections for three months, showed improvements in the number, thickness, and strength of hairs on their head.

How much does PRP Hair Treatment cost?

One of the main benefits of PRP hair treatment is that they are drastically cheaper than alternative hair transplant methods. For a full course of FUE Or FUT, you may expect to be paying between £3,000 and £6,000.

At Harley Street hair transplant clinics, our PRP pricing can be found below:

  • £395 for 1 course of treatment
  • £995 for 3 courses of treatments

We recommend starting on a 3 course treatment plan in order to see the best initial results and then move onto a maintenance plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

After your free consultation, it will soon be time to come in for the big day. Your treatment will take no longer than 25 minutes and will be performed by our experienced doctors and nurses. During the treatment you will have local anaesthetic to numb the area and make you feel comfortable and before you know it, the treatment will be finished.

PRP therapy works by harnessing your body’s own blood plasma to regenerate hair growth. There has been a clinical study done in Italy (source) that found that patients had increased hair and density in areas where doctors used PRP therapy. Another study in India (source) looked at men with male-pattern baldness who used both approved medications, but saw little change in their hair growth. After four PRP treatments, they had about 30% more growth in thinning areas.

PRP has been shown to be more effective at treating hair loss than other chemical treatments on the market. In a 2019 study (source), results showed that repeated PRP hair treatments consistently outperformed patients taking minoxidil in new hair growth.

PRP hair treatments are not a replacement for a hair transplant. They act as a preventative treatment during the first stages of hair loss and/or as a supplemental treatment to someone that has had a hair transplant but due to the large area of hair loss in combination with the donor area strength, PRP is used to add thickness post hair transplant.

Whilst small needles are used throughout the treatment, you will be given local anaesthetic or numbing cream. During the treatment, you may feel some pressure but nothing too bad! After the treatment, you may feel a little sore for 1-2 days.

Patient Testimonials

Aside from achieving fantastic results, we believe that keeping in touch with our patients before, during and after their hair transplantation procedure is paramount – it helps to keep our patients feeling calm and in control. We’re always on hand to provide guidance, support and aftercare advice. Time and again, our patients tell us that this is what sets us apart from other clinics.

Very few can deliver a professional service whilst ensuring that all clients receive first -class personalised treatment, turning what can be a daunting experience into something of relative ease. Both Kevin, Dr Karla, and their surgical team certainly did this (and then some!) Once my mind was made up to have hair loss treatment, I was keen to get my transplant done asap. Kevin exceeded all my expectations with this - it’s hard to believe that my journey from first consultation to surgery happened in the space of one month. Efficiency did not stop there - on the day of surgery, my transplant was completed in less than 6 hours, all the while ensuring that I was comfortable and pain-free. Security is the best word that comes to mind to describe Dr Karla’s care -you know you’re in experienced hands! Now I can look forward to the results over the next few months, with the added peace of mind that the Harley Street Clinic team are only a phone call or email away to address any concerns. They will be the first name I will recommend to anyone looking for effective hair loss treatment, and I hope to make use of their service again in the future should I need it.

From my first contact with Kevin he has provided great customer service, responding quickly or questions, offering consultations and giving me time to make my decision (not a salesman like I have experienced before). He is extremely knowledgeable in this area and so far everything he has told me has been true! Dr Kalra is a fantastic doctor and he knows everything there is to know about hair loss, I trust him completely. The surgery went smoothly, some of the injections hurt at the start but after that it’s the sitting still for hours that is the hardest part. The nurses were also brilliant they were happy to talk to you if you initiated conversation but didn’t chew your ear off if you were quiet. It is 4 months since my surgery and the the hair in the top of my head is almost fully covered with a few thinner spots where I previously had no hair at all, it seems to be noticeably thickening up weekly so I think one more month and no one would ever know I used to be bald! The donor area was completely healed and unnoticeable after 4 weeks. The aftercare has also been great, I have followed the instructions and I am very happy with the results so far.

I got a hair transplant and PRP for my hair. Im 19 years old and it’s the best decision I made so far. Manchester hair transplant clinic have been amazing. They were brilliant at welcoming me into getting a hair transplant and amazing at doing the job right. I will defiantly be going to them later on in my life if/when another is needed due to my age. I would highly recommend their service to anyone interested 😊

So after years of thinking about having a hair transplant i finally phoned up Harley street hair transplant clinic and spoke to Kevin who was extremely helpful answering all my questions.The transplant was on the 29th Jan 2022 by Dr Kalra and his team who made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. They were all very professional and very friendly. The procedure went great, no pain at all and I was extremely happy with the results. I can’t thank Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team enough, even the after care was unbelievable, thanks again guys. Highly recommend, 5 star service all day long. Cheers Richie
I was quite scared before going into surgery, but Dr kalra reassured me the procedures were straight forward and easy going. And he was amazing and so were the team. Everyone was polite and professional and I will recommend this team to anybody else 🙂

Had my FUE hair transplant on Saturday 5th February 2022 for receding hair line and balding crown. I’ve been thinking about a hair transplant for the last 2 years, I’ve heard bad stories and good stories as you do when you look through the internet or watching YouTube videos. I spoke with Kevin in January, great with explaining everything and putting me at ease (as I naturally worry about anything and everything). I wanted the surgery done as soon as possible after speaking to Kevin as everything felt right. Kevin arranged this for me and before I knew it here I am after surgery thinking what was I ever worried about and why didn’t I get this done sooner, however, things happen for a reason and that reason I hadn’t had it done sooner was I hadn’t found the right place or team to do the transplant and I’m glad that happened as I found Harley street hair transplant. I would highly recommend Kevin - Dr Kalra and his team. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back and making me feel like a different person. I am 4 days into my recovery and feel great. If you are reading this review and are like me with worrying about everything then please stop worrying, you are in safe hands before, during and after the procedure with Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team, just go for it. Thank you all again 😁

Massive Thankyou to all the team . After months of indecision as to wether to have a hair transplant or not ,i finally made the decision to make that first call,im so glad i did,im so pleased i went with Dr Khalra and his team. I first spoke to Kevin he come across as a very honest and genuine guy who was certainly very knowledgable about all the procedure ,after speaking to him i decided that these were the people i wanted to go with. On the day of the procedure i was very nervous,but on meeting Dr Kalra and his team i was immediately put at ease ,he was very reassuring and such a lovely friendly guy as was his team,It was all very proffesionally done in a lovely clean and modern clinic in Bury. Throughout the day i felt i was in really good hands with Dr Khalra and his team Naz and Raz ( hope ive spelt it right). Im now 7weeks into my Fue hair transplant and looking forward to the coming months to see the results . Ive no hesitation in recommending Dr Khalra Kevin and the team ,they are definitely the right people to go to if you are considering having a procedure done . Again i cant thank you enough . Mark..
