Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment

Many women and men are unhappy to find they are losing their hair or that the hair on their head is thinning and want a non-surgical solution to treat it. Those who have already had a hair transplant may be looking for treatments to help maintain their results.

You may have already heard of non-surgical treatments that use your body’s own healing process to rejuvenate and restore the skin and may be interested to know that we are also able to offer this treatment to help reduce hair loss or thinning.

This non-surgical hair loss treatment is not yet a clinically proven way to treat hair loss although it is now being widely used as a procedure for hair loss/thinning and the published results from studies look to be very promising with many stating the beneficial effect that the treatment has had on those suffering with hair loss.

Non-surgical hair loss treatment uses a substance found within your blood that has a high level of proteins that are known as growth factors which have always been associated with wound healing. It has since been discovered that when these growth factors are administered in a high concentration it can be really effective at encouraging the growth in dormant hair follicles.

Here at The Private Clinic, we combine non-surgical hair loss treatment with hair supplements such as Viviscal in order to achieve the best results. The treatment can also be used alongside many other hair restoration treatments to boost the effectiveness as well as being used as a stand-alone therapy to help reduce hair loss and improve hair growth.

Non-surgical hair loss treatment is suitable for both men and women who are suffering pattern baldness, receding hair lines and androgenic alopecia. It is also a great treatment for men and women who have had a Hair Transplant procedure to help keep their head of hair healthy and maintain their results.

What to Expect

The Private Clinic has been treating patients for over 40 years with thousands of people placing their trust in us each year. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a personalised service.

Non Surgical Hair Loss Treatment

You will start your treatment by having your blood taken.

This is taken by a nurse in-clinic just like if you were to have a blood test at your doctors or hospital.

The blood taken is then put into a machine called a centrifuge. A centrifuge spins the blood to separate out the red blood cells and blood plasma.

The blood plasma that has been separated will then be injected into the hair follicles on your head in the areas of hair loss.

Once the plasma is injected into the scalp, platelet activation will occur and the growth factors within the blood cells will stimulate the follicles and the improvement in blood circulation can also improve the quality of the follicles.


After Non Surgical Hair Loss Treatment

There is no downtime after non-surgical hair loss treatment.

The area treated on your scalp may feel a little sore for the hours following, but this can be controlled with pain relief if required. Some very mild swelling, redness or bruising may be present for 24 – 48 hours.

The best results are seen after 3 – 6 treatments over the course of 3 to 6 months.

It is a great compliment treatment to enhance the results from other non-surgical options such as Minoxidil and Finasteride.
