PRP & PRF Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma and Platelet Rich Fibrin therapy, commonly known as PRP & PRF treatment, is a non-surgical technique to help promote hair growth and skin rejuvenation. PRP works by separating a highly concentrated plasma containing platelets and growth factors, all derived from your own blood. This treatment dates back many years and has been proven to promote quicker tissue regeneration. The plasma solution containing PRF is then reinserted into the areas of need, allowing faster and strong regeneration of the hair follicles. All of our PRP therapies contain PRF which results in a longer acting version of regular PRP treatment.
StemCell Nanofat Treatment
StemCell hair loss treatment is a pioneering injectable which offers Nanofat combined with PRP and PRF. Essentially the Nanofat is liquidised abdominal fat which contains a high concentration of stem cells. Once the Nanofat is mixed with PRP and PRF, this forms a highly active product which can stimulate hair volume. Stem Cells improve the effectiveness of PRP injections by ”supercharging” the result with a richer concentration leading to a more powerful and longer lasting effect.
Finasteride, also branded as Propecia or Proscar, is currently the most effective FDA licensed drug for treating hair loss today, and has been since 1997. It has proven to slow, stop or even reverse hair loss in up to 81 % of men. The medication works by blocking the formation of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) from testosterone, which has been identified as the main culprit for male pattern baldness. The medication’s benefits were stumbled upon by happy accident in the early 1990’s. It was originally approved in 1992 to treat enlarged prostate in men, where men with thinning hair showed signs of regrowth. In most cases the medication typically halts further recession, or vastly slows it down. The longer it is used the better. In each year after the first twelve months there continues to be a improvement.
Minoxidil, also known as Regaine solution, was also discovered by happy accident in the 1980’s, when the medication was initially used to treat high blood pressure. Many patients noted hair growth all over hence why the solution was localised to the scalp. Minoxidil works by dilating the blood vessels, which promotes more blood flow to the follicles, thus creating healthier stronger hair over time. When used in conjunction with Finasteride for men, the two medications can be very effective as they work in very different but complementary ways.
