Whilst hair loss is a common result of the natural ageing process, often it can be premature, patchy or in some cases severe due to illness, hormonal changes and other medical factors out of your control. Losing your hair can often have an overwhelming effect on your self esteem and body image so our aesthetic artists will take care to personalise your consultations and treatments to ensure you leave feeling like the best version of yourself.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for hair regeneration is a non-invasive practice which utilises your body’s built-in healing abilities, using activated platelets to stimulate hair regrowth. A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm, centrifuged and purified. The Platelet-Rich plasma, containing the seven growth factors conducive to collagen production and hair regeneration, is then reintroduced to the scalp under sterile conditions, enacting microcellular repair which results in new hair growth.
The human body is covered in hair follicles, aside from a few areas such as the palms of the hands and the lips. Our hair is made up of tiny shafts of a protein called keratin which are ‘rooted’ by hair follicle cells. Our follicle cells contribute oxygen, nutrients, and lubrication with the oily element sebum, all of which help to produce strong, healthy, long-lasting strands of hair.
Hair is constantly in a cyclical process of growing, resting and renewing, with the entire process taking around three years per hair. Hair loss occurs when the growth cycle slows down, and hairs stop developing at the same length and frequency. The ‘rest’ period becomes more extended, and so hair growth diminishes, eventually neglecting to enter the renewal stage.
PRP Therapy for Hair Regeneration is a process, as opposed to a stand-alone treatment. A minimum of 3-4 procedures is required for best results and a bi-annual maintenance appointment is recommended every six months.
During your consultation, one of our aesthetic artists will discuss the areas of concern and create a bespoke treatment plan for you based on your desired outcome and further preventative hair loss treatments.
