PRP treatments are incredibly popular right now. It seems nothing comes close to the effectiveness and accessibility of the treatment for skin conditions and hair loss.
But how accessible is it? Just how affordable are PRP treatments in Australia? How much do PRP injections cost?
First, let’s cover the basics of what PRP treatments are and what they can do for you.
Then we’ll get into pricing and exactly what you get for your money.
Hair and Skin Science works hard to keep PRP treatments accessible to all and have no problem with transparent pricing. That’s why you’ll see pricing listed clearly on our website and we are happy to discuss it at a consultation.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It’s a solution made from your own blood that contains huge healing potential.
Blood plasma includes red and white blood cells and growth factors. Your body uses these elements for everything from healing to cell regeneration.
By injecting the solution directly where we need it, your cells have the resources they need to regenerate.
The solution is injected directly into the area where you need it most to help encourage the growth of new hair follicles or skin cells.
PRP treatments work a little something like this:
- We draw a small amount of blood, like a blood test
- We spin the blood in a medical centrifuge to separate the blood plasma we need
- We concentrate the plasma and prepare it for application
- We use a specialist microneedler device to apply it to the affected area
- We then shine a red LED light into the treated area to minimize the potential for swelling or infection
You can be in and out of the clinic in less than an hour with very little sign you had anything done.
One reason why PRP treatments are so popular is because they are simple and use your own blood, so it is 100% natural.
Aside from medical anticoagulants to keep the blood liquid, nothing is added, making this one of the safest cosmetic treatments you can have!
While the overarching principles of PRP treatments are largely the same, each individual treatment has slight differences.
Let’s cover those now.
PRP hair treatment
PRP hair treatment uses the platelet solution to tackle common hair conditions such as alopecia, stress-related hair loss, genetic hair loss and thinning hair.
The solution can help encourage the growth or regeneration of hair follicles and is proving very effective at tackling hair loss.
Recipients of PRP hair treatment will often begin to see tangible improvements in coverage or thickness within a few weeks. Improvements will often continue for many weeks or months after treatment.
PRP hair treatment for an individual session costs $350. Book a course of 6 sessions for $1500, which is the equivalent of $250 per session.
PRP skin treatment
PRP skin treatment is another very common use for Platelet Rich Plasma. We use PRP skin treatments to tackle wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, scars, uneven skin tone, sagging skin and other conditions.
The same healing potential is applied directly to the affected area of the skin. It helps encourage the regeneration of skin cells and the generation of collagen and elastin.
This combination can help tackle all those conditions above and deliver noticeable results within weeks of the treatment.
PRP skin treatment costs $350 per session of $1250 for a course of 4 sessions.
PRP under eyes
As the name suggests, PRP under eyes, is a treatment aimed squarely at tackling bags under the eyes, discolouration under the eyes and any scarring or sagging skin.
It’s a very targeted treatment that encourages skin to regenerate, new elastin and collagen to be produced and new skin cells to replace dark skin or scars.
It’s another very effective treatment where we have seen measurable results within weeks of the first treatment.
PRP under eyes treatments cost $200 per session or $700 for a course of 4 sessions.
PRP neck and decolletage
PRP neck and decolletage treatments are designed to address skin most exposed to the sun thanks to dresses, low cut tops, blouses and shirts.
This PRP treatment targets the neck, upper back, chest and shoulders. All areas that can show the signs of ageing and suffer from skin exposure.
PRP neck and decolletage treatments can help skin regenerate, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, skin discolouration and many other conditions.
PRP neck and decolletage treatments can cost $350 per session or $1250 for a course of 4 sessions.
PRP face and neck treatments
PRP face and neck treatments differ slightly from PRP neck and decolletage because they include the face as well as upper body. All areas that endure the rigours of modern life.
PRP treatments are very effective at targeting wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, loose skin and the many conditions we tend to suffer due to exposure to the sun and life in general.
The PRP solution helps regenerate skin cells across the face and neck to address the many signs of ageing. It’s a very effective treatment!
PRP neck and decolletage treatments cost $450 per session or $1650 for a course of 4 sessions.
Who can benefit from PRP injections?
Most Australian adults can benefit from PRP injections. As long as you’re over 18 and have no medical conditions that would be impacted by the treatment, you’re a potential candidate.
Our typical client will suffer from a range of common skin and hair conditions. Everything from alopecia to age-related hair thinning to dark circles under the eyes or wrinkles.
We firmly recommend checking with your physician before undertaking any treatment. If you’re in good health and are not taking medication, there should be nothing stopping you benefitting from PRP injections.
PRP injections cost and effectiveness
As you can see, while there is a cost associated with PRP injections, it is accessible to most people.
The cost includes first-class care within a cutting-edge clinic, treatments administered by Australian doctors, nurses and cosmetic practitioners and a full aftercare service.
The price differential between treatments reflects the time and expertise it takes to administer properly.
And the effectiveness of PRP injections?
Hair and Skin Science has undertaken over 100,000 cosmetic treatments over the past few years.
We find recipients enjoy tangible improvements in hair growth or skin condition in the vast majority of cases.
There is no guarantee of course, this is medicine after all. Much depends on your age, health, lifestyle, genetics and overall well being.
However, reviews and feedback we have received is overwhelmingly positive and many people keep coming back for more.
That should tell you all you need to know!
