Plasma Injection For Hair Loss

hair loss treatment

Plasma Injection Therapy is becoming a popular treatment to aid hair growth where there has been hair loss.  Plasma is injected into the scalp which in turn promotes the growth of hair follicles by stimulating cell structures and blood supply in the hair follicle which can stimulate hair growth and increase the thickness of the hair shaft.

Frequently Asked Questions

Plasma Injection Therapy has been widely used in the last decade in various specialities such as Orthopaedics, Dentistry, Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics.  Within Aesthetics Plasma Injection Therapy has been used as an alternative to other treatments such as Dermal Fillers and anti-ageing injections or as an additional complimentary treatment alongside.

This process is extremely safe because it uses your own blood, which eliminates any risk of disease transmission and reduces the possibility of any adverse reactions.  Prior to your treatment you will be screened for suitability by one of our highly trained Aesthetic Nurses or a Specialist Consultant and you will have an opportunity to ask any questions.

 

The process lasts around an hour.  During your initial session, your expectations and any medical history will be discussed.  For hair loss therapy, a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to the scalp for 30-45 minutes.  A blood sample will be taken from your arm, which will then be put into our advanced centrifuge machine to separate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells.  The plasma will then be injected into the scalp.  You may experience some minor discomfort during the procedure, and then there may be some temporary bruising and swelling that lasts for one to two days.

The treatment usually takes around 4-6 weeks for full effects and a course of 3 treatments is usually recommended initially and then a ‘top up’ treatment every 6 -12 months to maintain results.

Any side effects are usually mild to moderate and include swelling and bruising to the treatment area.

Following the treatment, you should:

  • Avoid washing the scalp for 12 hours.
  • Avoid using hair creams for 24 hours.
  • No other Aesthetic skin treatments for 2-4 weeks (depending on the treatment).
  • Avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Single hair loss treatment – £250
