The Connection Between Scalp Health, PRP Hair Treatment, and Gut Health

Published on: August 24, 2023

The London Cosmetic Clinic’s Comprehensive Approach to Hair Restoration

When it comes to hair loss and thinning, many people often seek out immediate solutions, overlooking the interconnected nature of our body systems that contribute to hair health. At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we believe in a holistic approach to restoring not just your hair, but also enriching your overall well-being. In this regard, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Treatment and functional nutrition play pivotal roles.

The Root of the Matter: Understanding Scalp and Hair Health

Hair is often considered an extension of our identity, but its well-being is intricately tied to physiological processes, genetic factors, and even psychological states such as stress. The scalp, being the foundation of hair, houses hair follicles which are like mini-organs in themselves.

These follicles are complex structures requiring adequate blood supply, nutrients, and hormonal balance for optimal functioning. Any disturbances in these could potentially result in hair loss, thinning, or other scalp-related issues.

PRP Hair Treatment: A Groundbreaking Solution

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Treatment is a groundbreaking technique that harnesses the healing power of your own blood to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. In this procedure, a small sample of the patient’s blood is processed to isolate the platelets and plasma, which are then injected into the scalp. The growth factors in the platelets engage with the cells in the hair follicles, essentially “waking them up” and accelerating the regeneration process.

This treatment is minimally invasive, and patients typically see results within three to six months. However, it’s essential to consider that PRP is not just a quick fix but a part of a broader healthcare strategy.

Gut Health: The Unseen Link

You may be wondering how gut health enters this equation. The gut is often referred to as the “second brain” and plays a significant role in nutrient absorption, immune function, and even the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. The health of your gut directly impacts the nutrients available for hair growth and the balance of hormones that maintain hair follicle health.

Moreover, an unhealthy gut can trigger systemic inflammation, disrupting the function of various organs, including your skin and, by extension, your scalp. A consultation with a functional nutritionist in London can provide tailored advice on how to restore or maintain gut health, further complementing the benefits of PRP Hair Treatment.

A Holistic Plan at The London Cosmetic Clinic

At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we offer a comprehensive consultation that assesses your hair health, nutritional status, and lifestyle factors. This 360-degree approach ensures that your PRP Hair Treatment is not performed in isolation but is a part of an integrated plan to restore your hair and improve your overall health.

Hair restoration is not just about regrowing lost hair; it’s about reclaiming your confidence and well-being. To discover how our holistic approach to hair and health can benefit you, contact The London Cosmetic Clinic today.


Incredibly happy with my gummy smile fix. It was my first time getting a cosmetic procedure and the LCC made me feel incredibly comfortable. Thank-you to Dr Johnson who walked me through the procedure ( which was incredibly fast and pain free!) and a massive thank you to Rahena! Your customer service was exceptional and made me feel really assured and comfortable. Will definitely be recommending the LCC to everyone. Incredibly professional and well priced clinic. I can already see a difference in my smile!
