Hair Loss & Thinning in Men
More than 50% of males may experience some level of hair loss by age 50. By the time they’re 70, four out of five men may have bald spots or a receding hairline if they’re not completely bald. Male PRP hair regrowth treatment involves using a fine needle to inject and micro-needle thinning areas on your scalp with your own plasma-rich platelets. PRP hair regrowth can be a natural hair regrowth solution.

What Causes Hair Loss and Thinning in Men?
Hormones and genetic makeup can be the main cause of male pattern baldness or hair loss and thinning in men. An unhealthy lifestyle and stress can exacerbate the issue.
A majority of men with hair loss and thinning can blame their genes. Male pattern baldness can run in families. You may have heard that hair loss comes from the maternal line. However, males whose fathers are bald may have a higher chance of inheriting the hair loss than those whose fathers have a full head of hair.
Your hormones can also change as you age. The fluctuation can make the hair follicles shrink. When this happens, the follicle can produce thinner hair with less pigment. If your hair has become softer and finer, you may be experiencing male pattern baldness.
Medical problems can trigger hair loss. So can some medications that men take for hypertension, arthritis, cancer, depression and cardiac problems.
Your diet can influence your hair follicles too. Low iron and protein levels may lead to hair loss and thinning men.
How to Detect Hair Loss
Most men usually develop predictable patterns of hair loss. The strands at the top of the forehead may become thinner and sparser. The hairline may recede at the temples. Some men may also get a bald spot that grows at the crown of the head.
If you develop small bare batches relatively quickly, your hair loss could be caused by something different than male pattern baldness. Autoimmune conditions, infections and even a sudden shock could make your hair fall out.
Can You Do Anything About Male Hair Loss and Thinning?
There are many options available for managing hair loss. Hair transplants involve surgery, and topical products don’t always work on their own.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, therapy can be used to regrow hair naturally. The procedure is minimally invasive and shouldn’t be uncomfortable. It involves drawing a small amount of your blood, separating the plasma from it and injecting your hair follicles with the PRP.
Cosmetic nurses work methodically to place the injections exactly where they need to go combined with micro-needling the entire scalp. Doing this can boost circulation in the scalp and may infuse it with growth factors that can nourish the follicles and help them function optimally again.
While PRP hair loss treatment isn’t effective for men who are completely bald, it can make a dramatic difference for those with thinning areas or bald patches. Our registered nurses can evaluate you to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
Hair Loss Treatments for Men
Without a professional hair loss treatment for hair restoration, male pattern baldness and any other type of hair loss are often permanent.
At the Hair and Skin Science hair loss clinic, we offer a hair health check and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair loss therapy to revive hair follicles and ensure male hair regrowth. Whether you suffer from male pattern hair loss, hair follicle inflammation, or thinning hair, PRP is a pain-free and effective alternative to hair transplantation.
Our PRP Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane hair loss treatments are suitable for hair thinning and hair loss in men and women. This treatment takes place in several steps. First, the hair loss specialist draws blood from your arm and process it in a centrifuge, where gravity forms a separation between the red blood cells and plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets.
With micro-needling, we inject the plasma into the scalp where balding or thinning occurs. After injection, the platelets improve blood supply to the hair follicles, activating hair growth, and increasing hair density. The platelets also prolong the hairs’ growth stage.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss, can be considered the most common form of hair loss in men.
As the name suggests, Androgenetic Alopecia involves the action of androgens (male sex hormones), specifically DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Individuals with pattern hair loss can have an increased sensitivity to DHT. DHT binds may onto susceptible hair follicles, which can cause them to shrink. Over time this can impact the hair growth cycle where hair starts to thin, shorten and eventually stop growing.
It can be considered normal to shed between 50 to 100 hairs per day. This is because of the hair’s growth cycle, which consists of 3 phases: anagen, catagen and telogen. The anagen phase is the growth phase of the hair in which the hair is actively growing. This phase usually lasts 2 to 7 years, and normally 85-90% of scalp hairs are in this phase at any given time. The catagen phase is known as the transition phase in which hair shaft production is completed. The telogen phase, otherwise known as the rest phase, is the last phase of the growth cycle. In this phase, a club hair is fully formed resulting in a hard, white and dry material at the root and the hair is eventually shed from the scalp.
Those with Androgenetic Alopecia, hair shedding is usually in excess of 100 hairs per day, as follicular miniaturisation can cause the hair’s growth cycle to become progressively shorter. This can result in significantly less hairs in the anagen phase at any given time, which is why hair shedding may be more frequent in those with Androgenetic Alopecia.
If the hair follicle is still intact, it is possible for this hair follicle to be thicker and regrow and improve the health of the existing hair follicles that have become thin over time. This depends on the stage of the hair loss you’re experiencing. Late stage hair loss will be difficult to regrow as many of the hair follicles are not intact anymore.
There are a few clinically proven treatments that can slow down hair loss and reverse hair loss or thinning. These clinically proven treatments can also thicken existing hair follicles that have become thinner over time. Some treatments require a visit to a Medical Doctor who may prescribe you with a clinically proven treatment, however, you may not be suitable for this treatment and there may be unwanted side effects. There are also alternatives such as PRP that have minimal side effects as you’re using your own platelets.
