About our PRP Hair Loss Treatments in Sydney & Melbourne
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This hair loss treatment involves three steps. First, the nurse collects blood, which is drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is processed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets. Then, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the regions of the scalp where the hair is thinning combined with micro-needling the entire scalp.
PRP is rich in white blood cells and growth factors, which can send messages to skin cells to function as optimally as they can. The PRP is precisely injected at half-inch intervals across thinning or bald areas combined with micro-needling the entire scalp.
Injecting combined with micro-needling PRP into the scalp can boost blood supply to the follicle. It helps to activate natural hair growth and can make the hair shaft thicker. Some of the reasons that it’s an ideal option for hair loss are that PRP can increase hair count, encourages thickness and can extend the hair cycle’s growth stage.
Because the treatment uses your own blood, you don’t have to worry about being at risk of a communicable disease. You’ll grow your own hair naturally. Therefore, it can be an effective and safe way to regrow hair for suitable candidates with hair loss. Candidates for this treatment may include people with:
- Genetic hair loss
- Androgenetic alopecia
- Stress-related hair loss
People with early hair loss tend to respond best to this therapy. You can even use this type of hair loss treatment in combination with other regrowth methods.
How does PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment Work?
Patients who opt for PRP hair regrowth treatment have a small amount of blood drawn before continuing the therapy. The blood is processed in a centrifuge, which splits up the various components. The platelet-rich plasma is removed and injected into the scalp using an extremely fine needle combined with micro-needling the entire scalp.
Cosmetic nurses meticulously place the tiny injections into the thinning areas or where hair loss is present. These injections make contact with the root of the follicles which can trigger growth. We also use a technique called micro-needling on the entire scalp, which can encourage blood circulation, helping stimulate hair follicles.
Following the procedure, in some rare circumstances, your scalp may be sore, but many patients don’t experience any discomfort. You can go about your daily activities immediately. Just don’t shampoo your hair or do strenuous exercise for 12 hours after the treatment.
Treatments should be performed every 2-3 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.
PRP Hair Regrowth for Men
PRP hair loss treatment can be a non-surgical option for men who are experiencing hair loss and thinning. The most common culprit of male hair loss is male pattern baldness. These patients, as well as those with other conditions that cause the hair to fall out, can benefit from PRP hair regrowth treatment.
PRP Hair Regrowth for Women
About 40 per cent of women can experience hair loss and thinning by the time they’re 50. In Women, the thinning usually starts at the part line, and they may develop sparse areas at the temple. Many women can experience hair thinning after childbirth or in their postmenopausal years. However, the condition isn’t always hormonal. Infection, medications, diseases and environmental factors can stop the hair follicles from performing the way that they’re supposed to. Even emotional stress can make hair fall out.
PRP injections and microneedling can be an effective solution for women experiencing hair loss and thinning.

This procedure is usually best for people with mild to moderate hair loss. Because it can promote natural hair growth, it can only work if you have active hair follicles that are still active. Men who are completely or almost completely bald usually have inactive hair follicles or hair follicles that no longer exist.
The needles that are used for this procedure are very fine. The injections don’t hurt. Moreover, the nurse will apply a numbing solution to your scalp if necessary to reduce discomfort.
Side effects are possible with any cosmetic procedure. However, the risks of potential adverse reactions from this PRP hair loss treatment are generally low. Some soreness or bruising may occur, but it is rare.
Most people can start to notice hair regrowth within three months. It can take up to 12 months for you to notice a significant difference in the overall thickness and quality of your hair.
Every patient is different, but it is recommended that people initially undergo treatment every 2-3 weeks. Getting regular treatments can help ensure that the hair follicles are continually stimulated. After the initial 12 sessions, it is recommended that patients have a ‘top up’ treatment every 3 to 6 months.
Each treatment takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. The length of time necessary for each visit depends on the area that’s being treated. The needles that are used are extremely fine, making the procedure almost pain free.
People who undergo PRP hair loss treatment usually notice a dramatic decrease in shedding fairly soon. Their hair may begin to sprout, and it can often grow faster than expected. Still, it can take some time to notice the change. Hair grows usually about half an inch every month. Hair and Skin Science has found that patients usually notice significant results in 3 months from the beginning of treatment.
The results of PRP treatment are usually most noticeable after 4-6 months. Most patients usually require touch-up injections once every 3-6 months.
You don’t have to do anything differently after undergoing PRP therapy for hair regrowth. You can return to work and your regular activity. You won’t be able to shampoo your hair or do vigorous exercise for 12 hours, though.
