Dr Joseph Ajaka understands that men or women suffering from hair loss or thinning hair can find the condition frustrating as treatments for this concern can be very inconsistent. With technology constantly advancing, hair loss or alopecia can be effectively treated with the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with the eDermastamp Medical Skin Needling. Dr Joseph Ajaka has trialled many treatment options for this condition and has seen amazing results with PRP for hair loss. It is a natural procedure that uses your own plasma to stimulate the hair follicles encouraging new hair growth
Dr Joseph Ajaka explains that the procedure itself is quite simple; a local anaesthetic cream is applied to your scalp, a blood sample is extracted (similar to a blood test) and this blood is then placed in a centrifuge. When this process is complete your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted and then reinjected into the treatment area using a small hand piece consisting of micro-fine needles. There is minimal discomfort associated with this procedure and almost no downtime. Skin will appear flushed and red immediately and you may experience a ‘sunburn’ like sensation. This normally subsides within 24 hours.
For optimal results Dr Joseph Ajaka recommends 3 treatments spaced one month apart to ensure you capture the first and second stages of the hair growth. Dr Joseph Ajaka then reviews the progress of the hair growth at 6 months and a top up treatment can be done if necessary at 8-9 months.
