Using Your Body to Regrow Your Hair

It can be devastating when you lose your hair. There are many possible reasons for hair loss: lifestyle, genetics, environmental factors, and the ravages of age can all take their toll. Add to that the stress of seeing your hair thin and scalp grow, and it’s a recipe for disaster. Your hair is a major part of what makes your look yours. And if you’re seeing it fade away, you don’t have to watch idly any more.

The experts at Hair Transplant Clinics Australia are here to help. We feature the most state-of-the-art hair restoration treatments available today. At our clinic in Sydney, NSW we put the most advanced tools to work and utilize the latest research to guide our practice. We are leaders in the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and autologous micrografting technology (AMT) to give you back your hair. Guided by esteemed plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Rizk, we can help restore the hair that defines your look — allowing you to look and feel like your best self.

What is Hair Restoration?

Simply put, hair restoration techniques seek to undo hair loss. The reasons for the hair loss may vary, but hair restoration provides relief in almost any situation. Some patients seek out hair restoration after they have gone bald and their hair has ceased to grow completely, while others start looking for remedies when they notice their hair begin to thin. While most people think of the head as the only place on the body affected by hair loss, it can also cause issues on the face, chest, legs, and arms.

The exact cause of baldness has yet to be isolated, but stressful seasons often result in thinning hair in both men and women. Some combination of genetics and hormones are commonly blamed for hair loss in men, and it is very common for women to notice thinning hair after being pregnant. Baldness is a very common affliction — it affects around 50% of men and 25% of women.

Both PRP and AMT work by using the healing processes at work in your body to combat hair loss. Whether drawn from your blood or skin, they catalyze the growth of new blood pathways and new, healthy cells that are able to regrow your own natural hair.

Autologous Micrografting Technology (AMT)

What are the benefits of AMT?

Autologous micrografting technology is a proprietary hair restoration technique developed by Rigenera. It prompts cell regeneration in the scalp, face, and body by harnessing the power of growth factor therapies that have historically been used in other areas. This can work by implanting progenitor and stem cells derived from your skin into the treatment zone, spurring the growth of new hair follicles and other structures that promote healthy hair growth.

The all-in-one device has been used to combat conditions including:

  • Male- and female-patterned baldness
  • The loss of hair on the face
  • Lost or patchy body hair
  • Thinning hair

The AMT Procedure

AMT derives its power from your skin. The first step is harvesting small sections of healthy skin from a donor area. These segments are then processed in Rigenera’s machine to separate out four key, constituent elements: growth factors, progenitor cells, stromal vascular fraction (SVF), and extracellular matrix (ECM). These are then injected via syringe and needle into the treatment zone.

AMT Recovery

The PRP process requires almost no downtime.

Patients often experience very mild discomfort while the blood is collected and during the injection process, but this pain typically subsides within an hour or two. You can usually return to your daily routine immediately, but it is generally recommended that you abstain from strenuous exercise for at least a week.

AMT Cost

Costs tend to vary according to the size of the treated area and the intensity of the treatment. Treatments on the scalp tend to be more extensive than other areas of the body, so they typically incur greater expense.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

What are the benefits of PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma treatments are believed to help regrow cells in a variety of situations. From muscle and joint injuries to hair restoration, PRP has shown promise over traditional treatments. Sometimes referred to as “autologous conditioned plasma,” the research into PRP is ongoing, but the potential is great.

When used to address hair loss, PRP has demonstrated to combat issues like:

  • Thinning hair
  • Baldness in both men and women
  • Loss of hair on the face
  • Bald patches on the body

The PRP Procedure

Treatments with PRP begin by drawing blood and preparing it for injection. Typically, a few vials of blood is drawn from your arm, and the blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate it. The three parts of blood — platelet-rich plasma, platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells — have different weights, so this processing allows for the isolation of the platelet-rich plasma. Finally, the PRP is injected into the skin of the treatment area, either with a needle and syringe or a microneedling device.

PRP Recovery

The PRP process requires almost no downtime.

Patients often experience very mild discomfort while the blood is collected and during the injection process, but this pain typically subsides within an hour or two. You can usually return to your daily routine immediately, but it is generally recommended that you abstain from strenuous exercise for at least a week.

PRP Cost

The cost of PRP treatments will vary, and it is tied to the extent of your procedure and the number of sessions required to achieve your goals. It depends on your treatment plan, but most patients need to undergo a series of injections to reach their desired results. Your provider at HTCA will outline all of the details of your treatment plan during your consultation — including the number of sessions necessary and the total cost.
