Hair Loss & Thinning Men

More than half of all males experience some level of hair loss by age 50. By the time they’re 70, four out of five men 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. A natural hair regrowth solution, results without the side effects that come with medication.

What Causes Hair Loss and Thinning Men?

Men are at a greater risk of losing their hair than women because of their hormones and genetic makeup. An unhealthy lifestyle and stress can exacerbate the issue. Experts haven’t discovered a way to prevent male pattern baldness.

A majority of men with hair loss and thinning can blame their genes. Male pattern baldness runs in families. You may have heard that hair loss comes from the maternal line. However, research indicates that males whose fathers are bald have a better chance of inheriting the condition than those whose fathers have a full head of hair.

Your hormones also change as you age. The fluctuation can make the hair follicles shrink. When this happens, the follicle produces 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 you take for hypertension, arthritis, cancer, depression and cardiac problems.

Your diet influences your hair follicles too. Low iron and protein levels may lead to hair loss and thinning men.

How to Detect Hair Loss

Most men develop predictable patterns of hair loss. The strands at the top of the forehead become thinner and sparser. The hairline may recede at the temples. Some men 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. But hair transplants involve surgery, and topical products don’t always work on their own.

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, therapy has been used in medical contexts for years. Now, experts are finding that it helps regrow hair naturally. The procedure is minimally invasive and shouldn’t be uncomfortable. It involves drawing your 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 boosts circulation in the scalp and infuses it with growth factors that 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 professionals can evaluate you to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. If you are, you can regain the density and fullness that you’ve been missing.

What Makes Us Different?

PRP injections and micro-needling is usually a separate service at most clinics. At Hair and Skin Science, we combine these two methods to maximise your results, without the extra charge at the most affordable prices in Australia.

Injections in conjunction with micro-needling has found to be the most effective method for regrowing hair. Your own platelets that are rich in growth factor are reintroduced into the scalp by injecting directly into stubborn areas to promote hair regrowth.

Micro-needling is a method that uses tiny and fine needles to stimulates blood circulation of the scalp. Increased blood circulation is critical for promoting hair regrowth. These fine needles slightly injure the scalp to encourage the production of growth factors that are responsible for hair regrowth.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

  • With a prescription medical grade anaesthetic, your scalp will be numbed, and minimal discomfort will be caused by our PRP treatments. 
  • Our Cosmetic nurses will then skilfully place tiny injections into the stubborn areas (typically frontal and crown) scalp skin which ensures the PRP is reaching the root of the hair follicles, this will be combined with micro-needling on the entire scalp. A sample of your blood is taken first and then with a state of the art centrifuge process, the growth factor and platelet cells are extracted.
  • After the treatment, the skin may appear shiny and flushed. This is a normal phenomenon and takes approximately 4-6 hours to resolve. With the minimal downtime of PRP hair loss therapy, the skin will return to normal within 24 hours. 
  • Treatment must be performed every 2 weeks for approximately 6 to 12 times in order to achieve optimum results. A top-up treatment may be required at the 3 month point depending on the results obtained.
  • Results will become more visible after 6 months only as the hair follicles take time to repair and strengthen. Gradual improvement will follow for the coming months over the rest of the 12-18 month treatment program.
  • Studies suggest that plain PRP treatments for hair loss are good for around 6 weeks while PRP treatments combined extracellular matrixes last for up to 2 years. However, repeated treatments may be required after 3 to 6 month.

​Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss, is the most common form of hair loss accounting for 95% 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 have an increased sensitivity to DHT. DHT binds onto susceptible hair follicles, causing them to shrink. Over time this impacts the hair growth cycle where hair starts to thin, shorten and eventually stop growing.

It is 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 in excess of 100 hairs per day, as follicular miniaturisation causes the hair’s growth cycle to become progressively shorter. This results in significantly less hairs in the anagen phase at any given time, which is why hair shedding is more frequent in those with Androgenetic Alopecia.

PRP is the most effective non surgical, drug free solution with no side effects as you use your own plasma to rejuvenate the hair follicles and promote growth. This treatment involves a sample of your blood taken first and then with a state of the art centrifuge process, the growth factor and platelet cells are extracted.
