What to expect
PRP is a simple, non-surgical procedure where a patient’s own Platelet Rich Plasma from their blood is injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth and provide fuller and healthier looking hair. Each session takes approximately 30-60 minutes and provides reliable results with a very quick recovery period. It is perfect for patients looking for a more affordable alternative to a hair transplant but is also used to supplement a hair transplant procedure.
The therapy begins by taking small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. The blood is put into a machine. Spinning at high speed (centrifuge) to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. This plasma, rich in platelets and growth factors, is then injected into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles.
Each session takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
Our guide price is £300 per session or a package of three for £800 dependent on individual requirements. Following your consultation with the surgeon you will receive your personal quote.
Treatment results vary, however, for most patients the results last up to 24 months. Touch-up treatments (every 3-6 months) will maintain the results.
Our surgeons advise waiting at least a month after your hair transplant before PRP treatment.

Regarding COVID19, we are working with selected COVID-protected facilities who have now reopened. These clinics have started a phased return model for a new normal with various safety measures in place including a limited number of procedures, reduced footfall through the clinic and enhanced PPE for staff. On the day, you will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and have your temperature taken on entry, as well as being asked to wash your hands. You will be asked to wear a face mask so that theoretically you are protected and you protect staff members in case anyone happens to be positive whilst asymptomatic.
Surgery Group have adopted guidelines from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery for use in all clinics taking into account UK law and each clinic has completed a COVID19 risk assessment of the patient journey through the clinic and taken steps to minimise risk, and we hope that by doing so, the risk of contracting coronavirus is significantly less than your weekly supermarket shop, however, it is not possible to guarantee that the risk of catching it is zero, such as in the nature of the virus.
To be clear, the government’s advice for the time being remains to stay at home unless you need to leave the house for one of 4 reasons including “any medical need” –
Without specific national guidance on hair transplant clinics, we deem it safe to offer the service in a limited capacity with the measures we have taken, but it is up to you to decide if leaving the house to attend a hair transplant clinic constitutes a “medical need”.
