Is PRP for hair loss covered by health insurance?
You cannot claim a medicare rebate for PRP treatment for hair loss.
Is PRP hair treatment worth it?
PRP hair treatment is worth it, as it is an effective and non-invasive method of treating areas of the scalp that are showing signs of hair loss. In order to ensure that effectiveness, our medical-led team conducts comprehensive consultations before any treatments are administered. That is why former footballer Thomas Bellchambers is an advocate for our PRP treatment, having received it multiple times since December 2020 in order to treat his hair thinning.
PRP Frequently Asked Questions
How much blood do they take for PRP?
In order to maintain the non-invasive nature of PRP hair loss treatment, we only take a small volume sample of blood (ranging approximately 15-30 mls). That blood is then placed into a centrifuge, where it is spun at the exact speed necessary to isolate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells and white blood cells. The purpose of this is to extract about 4-6mls of platelet rich plasma which is then injected into the treatment area.
Is PRP hair loss treatment painful?
Because PRP hair loss treatments involve platelet rich plasma being directly injected into the scalp, there is a misconception that the process is painful. We assure you that this is not the case. Not only are our treatments administered by registered nurses with experience in patient comfort, but we take many measures to ensure that the experience is as painless as possible, including the application of topical anaesthetic cream to treatment areas to minimise pain.
Who is a good candidate for PRP hair treatment?
While anybody can have a consultation for PRP treatment, the ideal candidate for the treatment is someone who is experiencing early signs of hair loss, such as receding hairline or hair thinning in places such as the temples or the top of the head. The earlier these signs are caught, the more effective the treatment will be.
How do I prepare for PRP hair treatment?
The steps taken to prepare for PRP hair treatment are fairly simple.
- A week before the procedure, avoid supplements that increase bruising and bleeding, which includes:
- Green Tea
- Omegas (Fish Oils)
- Evening Primrose oil
- St John’s Wort
- Vitamin E
- Aspirin (after consulting your doctor)
- Make sure you hydrate by drinking water before and after the procedure.
- Reduce your fat intake, as well as alcohol and caffeine.
How long does PRP last?
The effects of PRP affect people differently. On average, it takes about 4-8 weeks since beginning treatments to notice any visible changes.
- In 2-4 weeks:
- There is a reduction in the number of hairs you lose per day.
- There is a visible improvement in hair thickness.
- In 1-6 months:
- Daily hair loss continues to diminish.
- Strength and length of hair improves.
- The number of active hair follicles increases.
- In 6-12 months:
- Maximum treatment response occurs.
Are PRP Hair results permanent?
PRP hair treatment results are not permanent. However, once your initial treatment package is complete, the effects will last for 12-18 months. To maintain these results, it is recommended that you have a PRP session every 12-15 months.
