Hair Loss Treatments

Hair loss is a very common problem worldwide, affecting both men and women. In the UK, over 70% of men and up to 50% of women over the age of 50 experience hair loss. For women, the issue becomes particularly concerning during the perimenopausal years. Until recently, a hair transplant was one of the only options for men, while treatment options for women were non-existent. Advancements in regenerative medicine have indeed broadened the range of available hair loss treatments and made possible more affordable, relatively pain-free, and minimally invasive options, offering hope for those seeking reliable solutions

At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we are at the forefront of treating hair loss in both men and women using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and polynucleotides (PNs). These innovative hair loss treatments are clinically proven to stimulate hair growth from deep within the hair follicles, resulting in thicker, healthier, and stronger hair.

What are polynucleotides and PRP hair loss treatments?

Polynucleotides and PRP hair loss treatments are among the most innovative treatments showing promise in stimulating hair growth by targeting hair follicles. These approaches are becoming increasingly popular due to their minimally invasive nature and reported effectiveness in promoting thicker and healthier hair. The treatments regenerate new hair follicles by enhancing blood supply to the scalp and triggering active growth to combat thinning hair, balding, shedding, and a receding hairline.

How do polynucleotides and PRP treatment for hair loss work?

So how do our platelet-rich plasma and polynucleotide treatments work? Although they achieve very similar results, the process of stimulating hair growth differs significantly.  

Our PRP hair loss treatment works by harnessing the components present in your blood, specifically plasma, to activate growth factors (made up of white blood cells and platelets). These growth factors play a key role in PRP treatment as they enhance blood supply to the hair follicles, trigger the anagen phase (active growth phase) of hair, and strengthen the hair shaft.

PNs, on the other hand, use high-purity DNA molecules extracted from fish to reach cells responsible for the development and regrowth of new hair follicles called fibroblasts. Both PNs and PRP treatments are injected into the scalp to ultimately regenerate hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.

What are the benefits of polynucleotides and PRP hair loss treatment?

The power of growth factors within PRP hair loss treatment and fibroblasts within polynucleotides hold the secret to kickstarting long-term hair growth. Experience a transformation in your hair with thicker and healthier strands, while enhanced blood circulation in the scalp ensures not only the nourishment of hair follicles but also accelerates the rate at which your hair grows. What sets PNs and PRP treatments apart are their non-surgical and minimally invasive natures, making them an ideal choice for individuals seeking alternatives to surgery. Are you ready to experience proven hair loss treatments to restore your luscious locks and banish baldness? A full, thick, healthy head of hair begins with our PNs and platelet-rich plasma treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many treatments do I need?

    The number of polynucleotide and PRP hair loss treatments varies from person to person because it’s based on individual factors such as the extent of hair loss, the underlying cause, and the response to the treatment. We recommend an initial session of PRP followed by 4 polynucleotide sessions every 2 weeks. Subsequently, we advise another PRP treatment followed by an additional 4 polynucleotide sessions.

  • How quickly will I see results?

    The timeline for seeing results can vary from person to person. Generally, patients may start noticing improvements after a few months with early signs of reduced hair shedding showing up within 3 months and visible improvements in thickness and texture within 6 months. Optimal results can be seen between 6 and 12 months, where hair density continues to improve.

  • How long does results last?

    Typically, after an initial series of polynucleotide and PRP treatments, you may experience results that last for several months. To maintain the benefits, follow-up or maintenance treatments are often recommended at intervals, such as every three to six months.

  • What parts of the body can polynucleotide and PRP hair loss treatments be used on ?

    While platelet-rich plasma and polynucleotide treatments can be used in various areas of the body for different medical and aesthetic purposes. However, PNs and PRP as hair loss treatments are exclusively used on the scalp, eyebrows, and beard to stimulate hair growth.

  • Is there any aftercare following PNs and PRP hair loss treatment ?

    Yes, aftercare is essential to optimise results and minimise any potential side effects. Here are some general guidelines: Avoid touching the treated area after the procedure to prevent any irritation or infection and avoid washing your hair and physical activity for 24 hours after treatment.

  • Is downtime required after treatments ?

    One of the advantages of polynucleotides and PRP treatment for hair loss is that it involves minimal downtime. Most individuals can resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.

  • Are there any risks?

    To date, these have been deemed exceptionally safe treatments with no adverse reactions. Some patients may complain of slight itching for up to 6 hours after the treatment. This is the minority.
