Research into the Effectiveness of PPR scalp needling treatments (Platelet-Rich Plasma in treating Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness)

There are many different ways that people approach hair regrowth treatments to treat baldness in men and women. Some clinics only offer hair restoration treatments that involve taking oral medications with unwanted side effects.  Other hair restoration treatments are given by unscrupulous businesses who prey on people’s desires to prevent balding. But here at Hair and Skin Science, we believe in using more natural methods for hair restoration. These include PRP sessions that use the body’s own hair follicles and plasma to help rejuvenate the scalp to encourage hair regrowth.

When it comes to helping you prevent premature baldness or regrow your hair, we’re different.

  • Here at Hair and Skin Science in Melbourne, we take treating your thinning scalp seriously.
  • We promise you’ll see results in approximately 4 to 6 months time (or sooner) if you’re a suitable candidate for this hair regrowth method.
  • So we only offer what we know is scientifically based and with research to support the effectiveness of these treatments for balding (Alopecia).
  • Plus, we have a RISK REVERSAL promise – ask our Clinicians for details by phoning us today!

Hair Loss Prevention Treatments to reduce Premature Balding:  Does PRP hair restoration really work?

Hair Restoration Treatment Research: Effectiveness of PRP (Protein Rich Plasma) for Regrowing Hair

Here’s a link to a research article, suggesting that PRP treatments for premature balding (alopecia) CAN be effective to help suitable candidates regrow hair after experiencing premature hair loss.

In a small study, and based on our own client’s experiences with our innovative treatments, subjects who wanted to reduce bald spots were able to attain an increase in hair follicle activity and hair regrowth, and a reduction in hair loss, within a period of 4 to 5 PRP scalp treatments.

Oral Medications & Side Effects when treating Bald Spots or Regrowing Hair after Premature Balding and Hair Loss

The benefit of an oral-medication free treatment program that uses PRP with scalp needling, along with topical solutions and clinical-grade hair care products at home, is that the unwanted side effects of some hair restoration drugs are avoided.  The side effects from some oral medications used to treat balding include loss of libido and sexual dysfunction. Hence, many clients prefer the more natural, topical methods and PRP technologies that we use, rather than taking oral medications to help them regrow hair.  Women may also experience additional risks with oral medications that may help regrow hair. These are also avoided by using PRP treatments and at-home scalp care and hair care products rather than ingesting drugs.

PRP treatments use your own plasma, which takes a very short time to collect, quickly and relatively comfortable, via our skilled Nurses, and processed while you relax in our reclining treatment beds with numbing cream to increase your comfort during the micro-needling treatment.

Research Results in Hair Regrowth & Hair Loss Prevention

Hair Restoration using PRP – does it work? According to the peer-reviewed study:

  • HAIR LOSS REDUCTION: A significant reduction in hair loss was observed between first and fourth injection.
  • THICKER HAIR PER SQUARE CENTIMETRE: Hair count increased from average number of 71 hair follicular units to 93 hair follicular units.
  • HAIR GAIN/ HAIR REGROWTH RESULTS: The average mean gain is 22.09 follicular units per cm2.
  • NEGATIVE PULL TEST: After the fourth session, the pull test was negative in 9 patients.



The hair pull test is a method that helps a clinician assess how tightly your hair regrowth is anchored to your hair papilla. It involves placing gentle traction on a patch of your hair, and pulling a small amount of hair (approximately 100 shafts of hair) in different directions, e.g. from the proximal to distal position.

What does a “negative hair pull test” mean?

A negative pull test may indicate that your hair regrowth is resilient or resistant to hair loss, bearing in mind that hair follicles DO have cycles of growth, hair loss, and regrowth when they are healthy and active.  The more healthy and functionally active hair follicles you have, the more hair shafts to cover your scalp.

The end result? Reduced hair loss and healthy hair regrowth over time, so long as you follow the right protocols and keep your maintenance program up.

Eventually, depending on your genetics, age and hair loss patterns, you may lose hair again later in life, and this can vary from person to person; but in general, further hair loss can be prevented, and hair regrowth stimulated and maintained, with the right combination of PRP treatments and at-home maintenance programmes.

Ready to get started with treatments for bald spots, thinning scalp hair or a receding hairline?

Don’t delay – these treatments work best when suitable candidates seek early treatment.  That’s because the healthier and more abundant your existing hair follicles, and the smaller the bald spot(s), the more effective these PRP treatments can be. Also, the more readily they can reduce further hair loss whilst encouraging new hair growth to help you cover your scalp with healthy, often-shining hair.
