How does PRP work?


It is a treatment that uses your own PRP ( liquid gold, packed with growth factors) that activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and causes weak hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.


A small amount of your blood is drawn (about 10 mls per tube) and spun in a centrifuge machine. The centrifugation process separates the red blood cells and the PRP, which is then drawn up into syringes and is ready to be used in the skin. The PRP is then injected into the scalp using a small needle.

Once injected, the growth factors then “activate” and continue to activate for 4-10 days post injection. PRP is proven to increase the number of collagen fibres in the skin, improved skin texture and elasticity as well as decreasing hair loss and increasing hair volume and strength.

  • How does laser hair removal work?
    Laser removes the hair by a process called selective photothermolysis. The light energy from the laser is transferred into thermal energy in the hair follicle, with the laser energy targeting melanin, the pigmented region in the hair follicle. Heat from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair resulting in the follicle being destroyed.

  • Can I shave in between treatments?
    Yes, you can. please wait 10 days after your treatment before shaving. The only time we require you to shave is 24 hours before your appointment.
  • Does it hurt?
    There may be some slight discomfort, which some describe as a snapping of a rubber band. Overall, the treatments are well tolerated. We use a dynamic cooling device (DCD) which shoots out cryogen to cool the skin before the laser pulse is fired.
  • Whys is a dynamic cooling device important?
    Rapid, efficient cooling and protecting of epidermal layers only. No use of messy gels.
  • I have hirsutism /PCOS/hormonal hair growth, will laser work for me?"
    Yes, I am successfully treating patients with hormonal hair growth. It is always best to see a Doctor to discuss this prior to commencing LHR as you may need medication to help balance your hormones, specifically testosterone as this hormone can encourage hair growth in women. Long term maintenance treatments will be required and complete clearance may not be achieved.
