We specialise in natural hair regrowth treatments to reverse the effects of male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia). Our medical hair loss treatments can also help to expedite recovery from temporary hair loss causes (excessive hairstyling, certain medications, thyroid disease and pregnancy).
As we age, the quality of hair follicles declines. In some patients this decline can happen earlier in life or at a faster rate resulting in thinning hair, slow regrowth and baldness. Our medical-led team can effectively treat areas that are showing signs of reduced hair thickness, length and strength (typically the crown and frontal areas).
We collect natural growth factors, proteins and cytokines (derived from a small sample of your blood) and inject the concentrated solution into the parts of the scalp experiencing hair thinning. Typically, 10 treatments are recommended to trigger and maintain a growth cascade, however this number is advised during your complimentary initial consultation.
A growth cascade occurs within the level of the dermis, a layer of skin where the hair follicle (the root of the hair) originates. Within weeks, you will notice an observable difference in hair thickness and reduction in the number of hairs lost per day. Within months, an increase in the number of hair follicles per area will improve, in addition to quality of hair grown.
Our hair loss treatments are minimally invasive. No recovery is required after treatment
The ideal candidate for our hair regrowth treatment is in the early stages of hair loss.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is nutrient rich serum obtained from your own blood. For over 20 years PRP has been used successfully to manage and improve healing from sporting injuries. Over the last decade PRP’s use has been successfully expanded to include hair loss and anti-aging for the face. PRP is regarded as a regenerative medical procedure and is completely autologous (we only use the nutrients isolated from your own blood). It is a simple procedure that involves 4 steps:
Take a small volume sample of blood, (15-30mls)
Applying topical numbing cream to the area you want treated
Blood is placed in centrifuge calibrated to spin the blood at the exact speed necessary to isolate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells and white blood cells. The end result is 4-6 mls of platelet rich plasma (PRP).
The PRP is carefully injected into the treatment area
PRP is a non surgical, non pharmaceutical option for those wanting to manage the effects that aging has on their skin or hair without painful downtime or the inconvenience of taking a daily medication. PRP treatment is delivered as packages, these packages are based on current research as to the number of sessions necessary to achieve optimal results. For skin, our packages contain 4 sessions each session is 4-6 weeks apart depending on your schedule. For hair, we provide packages of 10 sessions delivered over a 12 month period, minimum time between each session is 2 weeks, maximal time is 6 weeks. During your initial consultation, we will determine the optimal time to deliver treatment based on your schedule and the results you are aiming for.
Prior to receiving any treatment, you will go through mandatory free consultation where our friendly nurses will examine your concerns, assess your eligibility and answer any questions you may have. Based on the outcome of the initial consultation, you will then be able to book an appointment for PRP treatment Melbourne.
PRP Treatments are considered to be exceptionally safe due to lacking any foreign substances being injected into your body. Since PRP treatments involve injecting your own blood, this also eliminates the possibility of allergic reactions and other complications which may occur.
PRP hair loss treatments are a minimally invasive procedure (there is no cutting of the skin or entering deep tissues), the minimal side effects involved are only:
The mild discomfort during the PRP hair loss injections (which is minimised by the application of topical anaesthetic cream before the treatment)
And tenderness around the site for up to 12 hours following the treatment.
If you are interested in PRP treatment Melbourne, we always ensure we provide safe and effective services by having our medical team complete thorough consultations before administering any treatments. If you have any more questions about receiving PRP treatment Melbourne, contact us and organise a consultation so we can provide you with the answers you’re looking for.
You will notice visible changes typically within 4-8 weeks of beginning treatments.
For optimal results we recommend a treatment package of ten PRP treatments for hair loss. This package is delivered over 12 months, the specific timing of treatments will be tailored to the results you are wanting to achieve and your schedule. The minimum time between each session is 2 weeks, maximum is 6 weeks. With these treatment packages we expect the following response to occur:
2-4 weeks: reduction in the number of hairs you are losing per day, a visible improvement in hair thickness.
1 month – 6 months: daily hair loss continues to improve, quality of hair improves (strength and length), number of active follicles should also increase. We will measure your response using a TrichoScan, a high power magnifying glass that we utilise to assess your individual response to the PRP treatment and predict your ongoing response. We will aim to complete to complete 6-8 treatments within the first 6 months.
6-12 months: Maximum treatment response occurs. The timing of the remaining 2-4 treatments will be determined by your response to treatment during the first 6 months.
Elucell offer PRP hair loss treatment packages to maintain your new hair and continue its growth.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) hair loss treatment results are different for everyone. We recommend all patients who have been assessed by our friendly and experienced doctors and nurses go through an “induction period” of PRP hair loss treatments. The induction period is typically 6 months long (depending on the patient). During this induction period, it is important that the PRP is being delivered to the affected sites regularly for optimum results.
Following the 6 months of your induction PRP hair loss treatment, we will review your progress and measure the changes of your hair growth using a Trichoscan (high powered magnifying glass that allows us to see the number of hair follicles per area and assess the quality of hair).
When assessing your results at this point, if the desired effect is achieved, you will progress onto a “maintenance period” for your PRP hair loss injections. As you continue on this maintenance period, we will gradually increase the time between visits. Between 12-18 months since treatment initiation, treatment revisions will only be necessary once or twice a year (depending on your own individual circumstances).
After completing the packages for either skin or hair, the results will last for 12-18 months following your last treatment. To ensure that you maintain the results you have achieved, we recommend a PRP top up every 12 months.
At Elucell, we provide free consultations with our friendly and experienced Doctors & cosmetic nurses.
