For Men and Women, The Leading Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment: PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
New and innovative, PRP is a revolutionary hair loss treatment. Requiring no surgery, PRP is able to encourage stimulation of ongoing hair growth. This male and female suitable treatment only requires a small blood sample to be taken, in total so small that it is even less than the average blood donation amount.
Thanks to our advanced and high end technology, your blood sample can be harvested easily before being safely and gently injected back into your scalp directly in the area where your hair is thinning.
With PRP a few short treatment sessions are necessary, but the benefits of this mean that you may be able to prevent the need for a more costly hair transplant, with the added bonus that PRP requires no post-procedure aftercare regime.
On average our PRP treatments can last up to one hour, with our patients able to return to their day and normal activities immediately after their appointment.

What is PRP therapy for hair loss?
Platelets within blood plasma contain a large number of growth factors, each of which can contribute to the stimulation of dormant hair follicles, as well as producing increased amounts of collagen. In turn, the hair is thickened by this to help you get a nice, lustrous and attractive full head of hair.
When it comes to PRP therapy, the procedure involves a blood sample being taken, before a specialist machine is used to separate the platelets from the blood sample, before the next step of injecting those same platelets into your scalp at the precise point or area where the worst of the hair thinning is happening.
Conducted in 2018, clinical trials and research relating to the direct benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) for patients with Alopecia and other dermatological conditions, resulted in evidence that presented favourable and positive outcomes.
These results and findings both corroborated and validated the stunning results that our team at Secret Esthetics Clinic see regularly with our PRP Clients and how their treatment works.
Who is Suitable for this Treatment?
This form of treatment, available at Secret Esthetic Clinic, is suitable for anyone who has dark eye circles and is self-conscious about them, male or female.
Who is Not Suitable for the Treatment?
Not Suitable for PRP Therapy: Clients with abnormal platelet function, clotting disorders and chronic liver disease. No exceptions.
What Steps are Involved in this Procedure?
Our Doctors employ a multiple stage technique:
- First: Blood is extracted from your vein, then centrifuged in a special test tube
- Local Anaesthetic Cream is applied to the area to numb and avoid any discomfort· PRP is injected just beneath the surface of the skin, ensuring that the concentrated blood with growth factors can work to restore tissue regeneration and elastin in the skin
- To activate the PRP, a micro-needling procedure then takes place, creating tiny wounds and triggering the all important healing response
After these stages, the area is cleaned up and aftercare ointment is always provided, at which point the skin under the eyes will begin to regenerate and repair itself.
How Does the Treatment Feel?
To make the process more comfortable for our clients, just prior to your PRP treatment we apply a light numbing cream. For most, mild discomfort is the most they will experience.
