We offer PRP treatment for hair loss treatment in Sydney, Australia. PRP treatments are designed to isolate the powerful growth factors in the patient’s own blood, which are then used to regenerate tissue, stimulate stem cells and increase the production of collagen, nutrients and antioxidants.
Step1: Depending on the area that needs to be treated, one or two vials of blood are collected by our qualified cosmetic nurse with minimal discomfort. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to extract the powerful regenerating growth factors from the patient’s own body.
Step 2: A numbing cream is to be applied to minimise any discomfort experienced by the patient when the concentrated plasma is injected into the relevant areas of the scalp. The entire treatment won’t take longer than an hour to perform. The number of injections that are required varies from patient to patient.
Step 3: The PRP injections trigger the body’s natural healing response, resulting in tissue, cell and collagen regeneration which increases nutrients that are essential for healthy PRP hair regrowth. Once the nutrient-rich plasma starts revitalising and rejuvenating the scalp’s tissues, hair density and thickness should start to improve over the course of 2+ months.
The main objective of PRP treatments is to stimulate hair growth in people who aren’t responding to other forms of treatment. For example, there are some patients who don’t respond to medication and aren’t suitable candidates for surgery, this is when PRP is recommended. Since the patient’s own blood is used, there are also no side effects besides some tenderness and swelling.
Men and women suffering from most types of alopecia or general hair thinning, those looking to prevent further loss and patients considering hair loss surgery can all benefit from hair regrowth treatment in Sydney, provided they are in good health. Treatments are most beneficial if they are started once the first signs of hair thinning start to show. Your medical history will be reviewed and your scalp will be examined during your consultation to determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for this procedure.
No, unfortunately not. New hair growth may be seen as early as 2 months but is typically more evident at around the 5-8 month mark. Results will continue to improve for up to 12 months.
This may vary depending on the severity of your hair loss. Usually, 4 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart is recommended, then a single top-up treatment every 6 – 12 months as maintenance.
You will find PRP treatments bearable and we can use a topical anaesthetic to ensure maximum comfort during your sessions.
Since this is not a surgical procedure, no recovery time is necessary. With that being said, some patients do prefer to go home after their treatment and prefer to return to work the next day. Several hours after treatment, patients will be able to shower and wash and style their hair as usual.
