Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP ) is a medical treatment that utilises a patient’s own blood to stimulate tissue regeneration and healing.

Treatment Process

  • Blood Collection: A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn, similar to a routine blood test. This blood sample is then processed to separate the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets, from the rest of the blood components.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma Isolation: The collected blood is centrifuged to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components. The resulting PRP contains a concentrated mixture of platelets, growth factors, and bio-active proteins. Alocuro’s PRO-PRP device and preparation protocol has demonstrated outstanding performance in extracting PRP from patient’s blood with platelet concentration of up to 10x baseline. This efficiency is superior to other manual preparation PRP kits available in Australia.
  • Injection: The isolated PRP is then injected into specific areas of the skin or other targeted areas of the body, depending on the treatment goals.

Expected Results

PRP therapy is utilised for various medical and cosmetic purposes, primarily due to its regenerative properties.

  • Tissue Regeneration: PRP is rich in growth factors that can stimulate tissue regeneration. When injected into the skin or damaged tissues, it initiates a local stem cell response. Over time, these stem cells help form new collagen, elastin, and blood vessels, promoting skin repair and rejuvenation.
  • Skin Improvement: PRP has been used to improve skin health, including increasing skin tone and elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimising the appearance of scars, and addressing signs of ageing and sun-damaged skin.

Procedure Overview

  • Procedure Time: A typical PRP therapy session can take about 60 minutes, including the blood draw and preparation of the PRP.
  • Downtime Required: Minimal downtime is usually required after PRP therapy. Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, but these effects generally subside within a few days. Patients are often advised to avoid sun exposure and certain skincare products for a brief period post-treatment.
  • Results Duration: PRP therapy often involves a series of treatments, usually three injections spaced 4-6 weeks apart. After the initial series, maintenance treatments may be recommended on an annual basis to sustain the results.
  • Cost of treatment:
    • Face: $600 per treatment
    • Hair: $500 per treatment

Pair this treatment with:  Cutera Genesis Laser, Bio-Stimulators, Bio-Remodellers and Skin Needling to further improve skin texture and appearance.

As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, it’s recommended to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine if PRP therapy is suitable for your specific goals and to receive personalised guidance on the treatment plan.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy for Hair

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy for hair is a medical procedure used to promote hair growth and address hair loss or thinning. 

How PRP Hair Therapy Works

  • Blood Collection: Similar to other PRP treatments, the procedure begins with a blood draw from the patient. A small amount of blood is taken from the arm similar to a blood test.
  • PRP Separation: The collected blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from other blood components. PRP contains a concentrated mixture of platelets and growth factors. Alocuro’s PRO-PRP device and preparation protocol has demonstrated outstanding performance in extracting PRP from patient’s blood with platelet concentration of up to 10x baseline. This efficiency is superior to other manual preparation PRP kits available in Australia.
  • Injection: The isolated PRP is then injected directly into the scalp at targeted areas with hair loss. 

Benefits of PRP Hair Therapy

PRP therapy for hair is believed to have several potential benefits, including:

  • Hair Growth Stimulation: PRP contains growth factors that may stimulate hair follicles, promoting the growth of new, thicker hair.
  • Improved Hair Density: PRP therapy may increase hair density and reduce hair thinning.
  • Prevention of Hair Loss: It can potentially help prevent further hair loss in individuals with early-stage hair thinning.
  • Non-Invasive: PRP therapy for hair is minimally invasive and does not require surgery.

Procedure Details

  • Procedure Time: A typical PRP hair treatment session can take about 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Downtime: There is usually minimal downtime associated with PRP hair therapy. Patients can often resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure but a recommended to not wash their hair for 8-12 hours.
  • Treatment Frequency: PRP hair therapy is often done as a series of 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart
  • Cost of treatment: $500 per treatment 

Expected Results

Patients may start to see results from PRP hair therapy within a few months of starting treatment. However, it’s important to note that results can vary from person to person. Some individuals experience significant hair regrowth, while others may see more modest improvements.

Pairing with Other Treatments:

PRP hair therapy can be used in conjunction with other hair restoration treatments, such as medications.

Before undergoing PRP hair therapy, it’s recommended to consult with a qualified practitioner. They can evaluate your specific hair loss condition, discuss treatment options, and create a personalised plan tailored to your needs and goals. Additionally, they can provide you with more detailed information about the procedure and expected outcomes.
