“Will PRP Work for My Hair Loss?”

Name: Gulbaz

Question: I just want to know that the prp will work for me and how much will cost me thank you

PRP Therapy for Hair LossAnswer: Hi, Gulbaz. We do not offer Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy at Belgravia as PRP has not yet been proven to have any beneficial effect on genetic hair loss, that is to say Male Pattern Baldness in men or Female Hair Loss in women.

Separate clinical trials are currently taking place in both New York and in Barcelona; they are investigating whether PRP may be safe and useful as an add on to existing hair loss treatment courses featuring clinically-proven, MHRA and FDA approved components, as well as whether this procedure shows any merit in treating thinning hair on its own.

For now, if you are looking for a solution that will help to stabilise any hereditary shedding and promote regrowth, there are two key treatments that tend to produce the most significant regrowth results. These are topical applications of minoxidil and the once-per-day oral tablet finasteride 1mg. Although they can be used separately, in our experience, combination courses featuring both medications often give better outcomes.

There are also a number of additional hair growth boosters which can be recommended by a hair loss specialist nurse to fit in with your personalised treatment plan. This category of product can help to improve the efficacy of the medications and is how we would class PRP at present, although the LaserComb is FDA-cleared plus far more convenient and easier to use yourself – not to mention cheaper (it is even included free of charge with most of Belgravia’s annual treatment courses) than having regular injection sessions.
