The Miracles of PRP Therapy: Facial and Hair PRP

Published on: September 21, 2023

When it comes to non-surgical aesthetic treatments that deliver spectacular results, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a frontrunner. Lauded for its efficacy in cosmetic enhancements, PRP is proving to be a revolutionary technique in the field of aesthetic medicine. At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we specialise in PRP therapy for facial and hair rejuvenation, providing you with holistic solutions for a more youthful appearance.

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from your own blood, making it an autologous treatment. In simple terms, a small sample of blood is taken from your arm, which is then centrifuged to separate the components. The resultant plasma, rich in platelets and growth factors, is injected back into the treatment area—be it your face or scalp. The growth factors stimulate natural tissue regeneration and promote healing, offering a range of aesthetic benefits without the need for artificial substances.

PRP Facial: A Natural Path to Radiant Skin

PRP facials have become increasingly popular for those who prefer minimally invasive yet highly effective treatments. So what can you expect from a PRP facial at The London Cosmetic Clinic?

Benefits of PRP Facial

  1. Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The growth factors in PRP stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Improved Skin Texture: As the new collagen networks form, your skin’s texture and tone improve markedly.
  3. Minimised Pores: PRP therapy can lead to smaller pores and a smoother complexion.
  4. Natural Results: Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the treatment harmonises with your body, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or other adverse effects.

The Procedure

Your treatment session will begin with a consultation to assess your skin’s needs. The PRP facial itself involves drawing a small amount of blood, which is then processed as mentioned earlier. The PRP is then carefully injected or micro-needled into your skin. The entire procedure takes approximately one hour, and there’s minimal downtime.

PRP Hair Rejuvenation: A Viable Solution for Thinning Hair

Balding or thinning hair can be a significant concern for many. While there are countless treatments available, PRP hair treatment at our London Clinic stands out for its non-invasive nature and effectiveness.

Benefits of PRP Hair Rejuvenation

  1. Strengthening Hair Follicles: PRP can awaken dormant hair follicles, leading to fuller and more robust hair growth.
  2. Increased Hair Density: Patients often report an increase in hair thickness and density within a few weeks after treatment.
  3. Natural Solution: Just like PRP facial, the treatment uses your own blood, making it a natural remedy for hair loss issues.

The Procedure

Much like the PRP facial, the hair rejuvenation procedure begins with an initial consultation to evaluate your scalp’s condition. Once the PRP is prepared, it’s injected into the areas of the scalp where hair growth is desired. The session lasts about an hour, and you may require multiple sessions depending on your specific needs.

Complementing PRP Treatments with Effective Skincare

While PRP therapy offers tremendous benefits for facial and hair rejuvenation, it’s important to remember that effective skincare plays a crucial role in maintaining those results.

At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we believe that a good skin care regimen is an invaluable partner to any aesthetic treatment. By integrating high-quality skincare products and routines, you can significantly extend the lifespan of your PRP results, keeping your skin vibrant and youthful for longer.

Our team of experts can provide personalised skincare advice tailored to complement your PRP treatments, ensuring you enjoy the full scope of what aesthetic medicine has to offer.

Choose The Right Skincare Products

When you come to us for a consultation or treatment, we take the opportunity to educate you on the best skincare products for your specific skin type. Combining PRP treatments with the right skincare products can truly amplify your results, helping you to achieve the radiant and revitalised appearance you desire.

Remember, PRP therapy and effective skincare go hand-in-hand for optimum aesthetic outcomes. So, make sure you consult our experts on how best to care for your skin post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About PRP Facial and Hair Rejuvenation at The London Cosmetic Clinic

What is the downtime for PRP treatments?

PRP Facial

Generally, there is minimal downtime following a PRP facial. You may experience some redness or minor swelling, which usually subsides within 24-48 hours.

PRP Hair Rejuvenation

Similarly, there is little to no downtime with PRP hair treatments. You may return to your daily activities almost immediately, although it’s advisable to avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions varies depending on individual needs and the extent of the condition being treated. Typically, a course of 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for both facial and hair rejuvenation.

Are PRP treatments painful?

Most patients describe the sensation as mildly uncomfortable but not painful. We apply a topical anaesthetic to the treatment area to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

When can I expect to see results?

PRP Facial

Results can start to appear within a few weeks, with optimal results usually visible after a series of treatments. Your skin will continue to improve over the course of several months.

PRP Hair Rejuvenation

You may start to see improvements in hair texture and growth after the first couple of sessions, although more significant changes typically become apparent after several treatments.

Are there any side effects?

Since PRP uses your own blood, the risks of allergic reactions are significantly reduced. However, you might experience some temporary swelling or bruising at the injection site.

Is everyone a suitable candidate for PRP treatments?

Although PRP therapy is safe for most individuals, it may not be suitable for those with certain medical conditions such as blood disorders, certain types of cancer, or active infections. A comprehensive medical history will be taken during your consultation to determine your suitability for the treatment.
