At UK Hairline, we also offer alternative methods for restoring hair and stimulating hair growth without going under the knife 

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy 

PRP is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that utilises a biological product prepared from the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth. The treatment should take no longer than one hour to complete and requires no downtime. 
Stage 1: A blood sample is taken from the patient’s arm and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities) 
 
Stage 2: After approximately 10 minutes in the centrifuge, the blood will have separated into three layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells 
Stage 3: The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and injected into areas of the scalp affected by hair loss 
 
For best results, we recommend a patient undergoes a course of three treatments, each spaced one to two months apart, followed by a maintenance treatment every 6 months. 
 
Although typically a stand-alone treatment, PRP has also been found to be beneficial for promoting the growth of transplanted hair follicles. 
 
 
 

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)  

For the best results, we recommend a patient undergoes a course of three treatments, each spaced one to two months apart, followed by a maintenance treatment every 6 months. 
 
Although typically a stand-alone treatment, PRP has also been found to be beneficial for promoting the growth of transplanted hair follicles. 
 

Medical Treatments for Hair Loss  

Minoxidil 
 
This medical treatment is used to slow down the effects of hair loss. It is available as a topical prescription, either as a liquid or a foam solution, and prescribed in various strengths for both men and women. 
 
Minoxidil is most effective for patients under the age of 40 years old and in the early stages of hair loss. 
Finasteride 
 
This prescription medication is used specifically for the treatment of male pattern hair loss. Finasteride blocks the action of the enzyme, 5-alpha reductase, which regulates the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
