PRP Hair Regrowth
Restore Your Hair to Its Natural Beauty with PRP Hair Regrowth
If you’ve heard of PRP hair regrowth treatments, you may be wondering whether this new procedure can help with your thinning hair. Especially if you’ve tried other hair loss remedies in Sydney, you might naturally have some doubts about this popular new treatment that everyone is trying, from celebrities to your neighbours and colleagues.
There are several reasons why so many people are turning to PRP. PRP can help slow the rate at which you lose hair, promote new, thicker hair growth, improve the condition of your scalp, stimulate the production of new collagen, and promote hair growth and healing following hair transplantation.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Our blood is made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. PRP is a blood component. Platelets work by reacting to cuts and wounds to clot blood and aid healing. Plasma contains nutrients, proteins and growth factors that repair damage and injuries. These components are therefore useful to stimulate hair follicle growth, increase circulation to hair follicles and decrease inflammation.
What happens during the procedure?
Firstly, the scalp will be cleaned and numbing cream will be applied. A small sample of blood is taken from the arm and placed in a centrifuge which separates the blood components. PRP is then drawn up and injected into the areas of hair loss, stimulating the hair follicles; encouraging new hair to grow. The procedure is carried out in a sterile environment and is completely safe as your own blood is used.
PRP is very useful for:
- Slowing the rate at which hair is lost
- Helping new hairs grow thicker and stronger
- Improving the overall condition of the scalp by stimulating the production of collagen
- Preparing the quality of the hair follicles pre hair transplantation
- Promote healing and hair growth post hair transplantation

What You Should Know about PRP Hair Restoration
You may have heard of PRP, but what exactly is it?
- PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma.” Your blood is comprised of two parts: red blood cells and plasma. Along with white blood cells, plasma contains platelets, which are rich in essential growth factors. Growth factors have played a role in treatment for a variety medical conditions, such as arthritis, and they can also stimulate hair follicle activity and promote new hair growth.
- The process is delicate and complex. The process of this hair growth treatment in Sydney begins with a blood draw from your arm. Your provider will place the tube of blood into a centrifuge, which spins to separate plasma from red blood cells. Your provider will inject the plasma into your scalp at the level of the hair follicles to stimulate them and promote new growth. Even though the process is meticulous, the entire treatment usually takes less than half an hour.
- There is very little risk. Although the idea of needles and blood draws may be stress-inducing for some, there is minimal risk involved in this natural hair loss treatment in Sydney. The only substance entering your body is your own blood, so allergies and poor reactions are seldom an issue.
- Discomfort is minimal; most clients do not need any anaesthesia to receive the injections, but we will apply a numbing cream to remove the possibility of any discomfort. If you do experience any pain, cool air, ice packs, or acetaminophen are usually enough to relieve it.

What You Should Know about Male Hair Loss
Although it is more common for men to experience hair loss, it may still be a sensitive issue for some men that are experiencing male hair loss in Sydney.
Male hair loss is not a topic that many people like to discuss openly and some may even think that it is something that they have to put up with as they age. But male hair loss is not something that needs to be ignored and there are effective and natural male hair loss treatments in Sydney available.
Here is some helpful information about male hair loss and male hair loss treatments:
- While there are many factors that can contribute to male hair loss, such as diet, lifestyle, stress, medical conditions and medications, the most common type of male hair loss is genetic hair loss. PRP and PRP injections are an effective method of treatment for hair loss in Sydney and may be effective even if you don’t know why your hair is thinning.
- Up to two-thirds of men will experience male hair loss, with the most common area of hair loss being the hair line (receding hair line), top of the head and the crown. Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition that can be passed down from either the maternal or paternal side of the family.
- The natural hair growth cycle consists of four phases: growth (anagen), transitional (catagen), resting (telogen) and shedding (exogen). It is normal to experience hair loss of up to 100 strands of hair a day. If you’re losing more than 100 hairs a day, you could be experiencing male hair loss.
What You Should Know about Female Hair Loss
If you are seeking female hair loss treatment in Sydney, you’re not alone. Hair loss is a common problem among women, and it’s not one that people like to discuss openly. Fortunately, there are real solutions that can help give you back the healthy, natural hair that you want. Here are a few key facts about female hair loss.
- Have you noticed that your hair looks thinner lately? Multiple factors can contribute to hair loss. For example, women who are experiencing higher levels of stress than normal, are living with certain health issues, or have just given birth may experience hair loss. Understanding the cause of your hair loss can help you to pinpoint a solution, but PRP injections for hair loss in Sydney may be effective even if you don’t know why your hair is thinning.
- It’s normal. In many cases, there may not be a specific underlying cause of female hair loss. Female-pattern baldness is a normal and common condition in which women begin to lose hair. It’s similar to male-pattern baldness in that it typically occurs gradually as you age (possibly starting in your mid-30s). In all, about one-third of women will experience hair loss.
- Seeing your doctor is the first step. Whether your hair is thinning in defined patches or all over, pay a visit to your doctor to rule out any medical conditions that might be causing the issue. Certain medications can also lead to hair loss, so be sure to ask your doctor about the medications that you are currently taking or have taken recently.

Do not drink any alcohol on this day, and do not take minoxidil or other topical hair solutions. You should wash your hair and scalp thoroughly and condition your hair as normal. Eat a healthy breakfast and lunch (if your appointment is in the afternoon), and drink plenty of water prior to your PRP appointment.
- After: Do not wash or touch your hair for a minimum of 4 hours after your PRP treatment. Avoid use of anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 3 days. If you experience any pain, you may take paracetamol to relieve any discomfort. Avoid heat inducting activities, chlorinated water and UV rays for 24-48 hours. Topical serums may be continued on the following day.
