Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) Surgery Group

What to expect

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

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.

  • Fuller, thicker hair
  • A course of treatments
  • Hair growth without surgery
  • Stem cell technology
  • Minimal pain
  • Suitable for men and women

PRP FAQ

A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure that transfers hair from the donor area (with strong, healthy, permanent hair) to the affected area (crown, hairline etc).

Surgery Group started life as a  Hair Transplant provider and we have years of experience in FUE & FUT hair transplant surgery. All surgeons that we work with are GMC @ CQC Registered and are members of ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery). Many have been catalysts in developing and innovating hair transplant methods in the UK and abroad. We have worked with the same Hair Transplant Surgeons for at least  5 years.  The surgeons have enabled us to become taller by standing on their shoulders and we are incredibly proud to be able to direct our patients to some of the very best in the business.

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.ur existing hair should be discussed.

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.

Most procedures take between 4 and 8 hours depending on the number of grafts involved and the complexity of the treatment plan.

Transplanted hair is guaranteed to grow for life.

Hopefully one procedure will be enough. Transplanted grafts will be there for life but a hair transplant does not stop ongoing hair loss so ways to keep your existing hair should be discussed.

FUE

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area and inserting them, one by one, onto the balding or thinning areas.

Method

The surgeon uses a specialised punch device, ranging in diameter from 0.6mm – 0.9mm, to extract complete follicular units. This separates the surrounding tissue from the unit, minimising trauma and scarring and improving the hair transplant results. He then delicately places each graft into the affected area.

As the treatment is minimally invasive, there is no detectable scarring. The transplant is carried out under local rather than a general anaesthetic, eliminating risks and downtime associated with other medical procedures.

In most cases, patients are able to return to work after a few days.

FUT

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) involves removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the donor area and implanting it into the bald or thinning areas.

Method

The strip from the donor area is dissected to garner the grafts. Using microscopes the team will extract the hairs from from the tissue and prepare them for implanting. The number and type of graft used depends on the hair type, quality, and colour as well as the size of the area where it will be transplanted.  

This method will usually produce up to 2500-3000 grafts (5000-6000 hairs)

After the grafts are prepared, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will be placed, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately places each graft in one of the holes.

The hair transplant will take approximately four to eight hours, and is performed under local anaesthesia.

FUE and FUT

There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of procedures.

Since FUE does not leave a linear scar (like FUT), patients can cut and style their hair without restrictions.

With FUT, the donor area will be left with a small linear scar, which can be hidden by the hair around it. Patients are advised not to cut their hair too short (i.e. below a number 3).

With FUT procedures the grafts are extracted under microscopes and there is a lower transection rate (damaged grafts).

Both methods have their merits and we are always happy to help you to make an informed choice on  your best way forward.
