Restore your hair growth with our medically proven treatments for men and women

Up until recently, hair transplantation surgery has been the primary treatment for hair regrowth. But with medically proven alternatives now available, strengthening your hair follicles and benefiting from thicker and healthier hair has never been more accessible. At Skin Excellence Clinics, we’ve been leading revolutionary hair growth treatments for over 10 years, becoming the go-to specialists for anyone suffering from hair loss. If you want to experience a different type of hair growth treatment that requires no downtime, we’re here to help. With a DNA genetics test known as Trichotest, we will prescribe a bespoke treatment plan based on medicines and supplements that are right for you.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

Often termed the Vampire restoration treatment, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy extracts the platelet cell fraction from your blood sample and releases its growth factors before it’s injected into the scalp. This treatment is a medically proven method of cell separation which creates high concentrations of PRP to encourage long-lasting hair growth.

Benefits of PRP therapy:

  • Stimulates hair follicles to produce thicker and healthier hair
  • Supports hair follicle growth before and after transplantation
  • Moderately painless treatment with no downtime required, utilising the latest injection gun device
Hair Loss Treatments
is efffective for:
  • Are you suffering from male pattern baldness?
  • Have you noticed a reduction in hair growth caused by ageing, pregnancy or menopausal changes?
  • Are you seeking hair transplantation and want additional treatments to support hair growth before and after transplantation?
  • Do you suffer from autoimmune or other hair loss conditions and want to improve the health of hair follicles and restore growth of healthy hair?


What types of hair loss can be treated by PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Polynucleotides and Exosomes are all medically proven treatments for male and female pattern hair loss, as well as hair loss caused by pregnancy or menopausal changes. It can help to maintain hair function and improve the quality of hair follicles.

Are hair loss treatments painful?

Hair loss treatments are not typically painful. With PRP and micro-needling treatment, the needles are injected at such a pace that pain receptors within the scalp are not activated. For any treatments that may cause discomfort, a local anaesthetic is usually applied as standard.

How many hair loss treatments are needed?

Response to treatment is slow and can take months before you experience significant hair growth. A course of treatment is usually advised – typically three or six sessions followed by a wait-and-see approach to monitor response to treatment which can take three to six months. Maintenance treatment is advised every six months or so.

What types of hair loss can be treated by exosomes and polynucleotide (PDRN) therapy?

Exosomes and polynucleotide (PDRN) therapy are effective treatments for more resistant types of hair loss, such as autoimmune hair loss where hair follicles have been lost permanently. Your doctor will advise on the best treatment for you during your consultation.

What hormonal treatments and nutritional support help to prevent hair loss?

Hormonal issues for men and women are often a key factor of hair loss. At Skin Excellence Clinics, we can check your testosterone, oestrogen and progesterone levels and, if necessary, supplement with nutritional or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. We can also support with other topical treatments that block the affected testosterone of your hair follicles.

Calecim treatment
