At Bay Street Medical, we’re not only good at reducing hair, we can also help you grow it back!

We at Bay Street Medical can help you to prevent further hair loss and regrowth of your lost hair by using your own blood through a special treatment which is known as Platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Call us on 9676 8888 to make an appointment with one of our doctors to learn how PRP can help you to replace your missing hair and prevent further hair loss.

 

PRP treatments are a new medical technology used in the treatment of hair loss, musculoskeletal injuries as well as for skin rejuvenation.

To grow a hair, a hair follicle needs to be alive and receiving a healthy supply of blood.  Therefore, if the hair follicle is present, PRP can assist in regrowing and promoting a healthier and stronger hair.
