PRP for Hair Loss

What is hair PRP?

PRP therapy is a new and natural non-surgical option for patients experiencing hair loss. Here at Surecell, we have seen patients improve tremendously after treatments, and clinical studies provide evidence that PRP stimulates hair growth. The cells and growth factors in PRP encourages the growth of hair follicles.

Who is a good candidate for hair PRP?

PRP is a great solution for both men and women, especially when hair transplant surgery is not an option. PRP injections can stimulate new hair growth in people who suffer from male or female pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia). The male hair procedure is sometimes referred to as “PRP Vampire Hair Raising.”

Medications used to restore hair can be used in conjunction with PRP, only if the patient can tolerate the medication used. PRP can also be combined with Minoxidil lotion or used after a hair transplantation for an even better effect. 


PRP treats the following types of hair loss:​

  • Androgenetic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness)

  • Alopecia areata

  • Traction alopecia

  • Telogen effluvium

PRP injections can also prevent further hair loss and slow down the rate of thinning. Talk to one of our doctors if you are unsure of the type of hair loss you are experiencing. 

What does hair PRP involve?​

  • A nurse will take your blood (like a normal blood test).

  • The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP which contains a large concentration of growth factors and platelets integral to healing and regeneration.

  • The area to be treated is washed and local anaesthetic cream is applied.

  • The PRP is then injected directly into the scalp area where the hair is currently thinning.

The procedure will take approximately 60 minutes, and the PRP treatment is usually performed every 4 to 6 weeks for three sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do hair PRP injections cost?

Hair PRP injections cost $150 a session. We recommend booking a consultation to determine your suitability. For new patients, the consultation fee is $85 and partially covered by Medicare. Should you decide to go ahead with hair PRP treatment on the same day, the consultation fee will be waived.

When can I expect to see improvements after getting hair PRP injections?

New hair growth may take at least 6 months to be visible. Most patients notice reduced hair loss right after their first or second hair PRP session. As with all PRP treatments, results differ depending on the individual and their lifestyle. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, stress and illness can affect results.

Is there any downtime when getting hair PRP injections?

There is no downtime with hair PRP. Hair can be washed 1-2 hours after the PRP session. Patients who wish to dye their hair should wait at least a week after getting hair PRP.

How many PRP treatments will I need?

We generally recommend a course of three sessions, each one month apart, followed by annual top-up sessions. However, the number of treatments and frequency can also vary depending on the patient's condition and the results of their initial treatment.
