Hair Loss Treatment
LINIA Skin Clinic has an extensive range of treatments that are suitable for hair loss. Hair loss is more common than you think and we appreciate it is very hard to deal with. We want to make sure you know you are not alone and provide a solution with our hair loss treatments.
As well as distressing, particularly if it starts happening all of a sudden, it can also be very damaging to your self confidence and self esteem. Our aim is to reverse this for our clients.
Here at LINIA, we provide you with a consultation which enables us to examine the affected areas. As well as this, we can carry out blood tests in the hope of identifying the cause of your hair loss.
You will be provided with a personalised plan to your specific needs and requirements, providing you with the best results.
With our treatments, hair growth can be stimulated within twelve weeks, while full results can take up to a year or longer to take effect.
Hair Loss Treatment Available in London at Linia Skin Clinic
We offer many hair loss treatments in our London-based Harley Street clinic, which include:
It is important to not see Finasteride as a miracle cure for baldness. However, it is an incredibly effective hair loss treatment for men.
We use this to treat baldness in men (but not women, as it increases levels of testosterone in the body and is shown to not be very effective for female hair loss in studies) whether it be patches of hair loss or receding hairlines.
Finasteride is a tablet that can provide improvements if taken daily.
How Finasteride Works
Often known by the branded version of the medication, Propecia, the pill works by preventing the thinning of your hair by prohibiting testosterone from being converted into Dihydrotestosterone) or DHT.
DHT, for the uninitiated, is a potent hormone that can shrink hair follicles and eventually completely stops hair from growing.
You may have heard of Propecia, the brand name for Finasteride as it is used most famously by Donald Trump.
Don’t let his glowing report of its abilities or the fact that he uses it at all put you off benefiting from this effective hair loss treatment.
Minoxidil is used to treat hair loss in men and women and is applied to the scalp.
The solution is different for men and women, we use a 5% solution for men and a 3% solution for women, however, both can provide results if used twice a day.
This is a topical solution you apply to the areas of your scalp where the hair is thinning out and there are signs of baldness.
How Minoxidil Works
Minoxidil is different from Finasteride, as it doesn’t block DHT or increase testosterone levels in the body making it an ideal hair loss treatment for women and men.
It helps to reduce or completely stop hair loss in 4 key ways:
- Extends the length of the growth phase of follicles
- Stimulates follicles into the growth phase
- Increases the flow of blood around the follicles
- Reverses follicle miniaturisation
PRP Hair Loss Treatment
PRP treatment for hair loss is not only one of the most modern and cutting-edge offerings at Linia Skin Clinic, but also the strangest.
Admittedly, it is not the easiest to digest, but as it’s one of the most effective, we highly recommend it.
PRP Therapy involves your own blood being taken, then that blood being placed in a centrifuge machine along with a separation gel.
This gel will help, along with the high-speed spinning action of the centrifuge, to separate and isolate the plasma from the red blood cells rich in platelets.
The resulting product is what is known as PRP or platelet-rich plasma.
This is then injected into your scalp around the areas where hair loss is evident.
How PRP Works to Treat Hair Loss
The PRP injections help to stimulate new hair growth, by extending the growth cycle of existing hair, as well as rejuvenating the follicles.
According to scientific research and literature on the subject of PRP, it releases growth factors from the platelets, along with cytokines.
