The Vampire Hair Regrowth Plan

Vampire Treatment For Hair Loss PRP The Belgravia CentreOver the years, men and women experiencing hair loss have tried a whole range of different treatments in an attempt to promote regrowth. The latest such treatment doing the rounds is known as Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, or PRP.

Based on the “vampire facelift” technique which reduces the appearance of fine lines and acne, PRP involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood. It is then spun at very high speed (centrifuged) to separate the blood into its constituent parts. The plasma and platelets are then removed from the solution and injected or rubbed into the scalp.

What is the appeal of PRP?

For centuries people have tried to combat hair loss by rubbing all manner of substances into their scalps, usually with little or no success. PRP therapy works on the principle that platelet-rich plasma contains the essential building blocks required for tissue regeneration and healing.

PRP therapy is also thought to strengthen hair follicles and thicken existing hair.

Who is PRP therapy for?

According to adherents and practitioners, PRP therapy is effective in treating pattern baldness, receding hairlines and even Alopecia. PRP therapy is available as a hair loss treatment for both male and female hair loss.

Patients undergo at least eight PRP therapy cycles and are expected to see the first signs of growth after just four. Initially patients would expect to see little more than “fuzz” growing in the affected areas of their scalp.

What are the drawbacks?

The effectiveness of PRP therapy is questionable, with little scientific evidence to back up the claims of practitioners. Many cosmetic surgeons who offer PRP treatment also recommend the use of other, proven hair regrowth techniques such as hair loss medications. It is therefore entirely possible that any hair growth is actually a result of these “complementary” hair loss treatments.

PRP therapy can also be quite expensive depending on the practitioner. Typically, a single PRP cycle costs between £40 and £150 – a ‘complete’ set of eight consultations can therefore cost up to £1200. This is of course without the cost of any additional treatments or medications recommended by the practitioner.

Hello there, After my hair transplant my Doctor recommend me to do a PRP every three months for one year after the hair Transplant. Could you please tell me the cost of each PRP session?

Hi Francesco, we do not offer PRP here at Belgravia as it is not proven to help hair loss - it is currently being studied to see if it is beneficial or not.
