Resinject australia review
Resinject is a non-surgical injectable treatment for male pattern baldness. It uses the body’s own blood platelets to promote new hair growth. Reinjection Australia was founded in 2011 by Dr. Catherine O’Brien, who is affectionately known as Australia’s ‘Hair Bible.’
Dr. O’Brien said that when her own father became stressed about his hair loss – which is hereditary for men on his side of the family – he took up jogging instead. But this didn’t make him feel any better because it looked like he’d gone out without brushing his hair, she said.
This prompted Dr. O’Brien to start looking into ways to treat and prevent androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness).
After three years of research, Dr. O’Brien developed the Resinjection method – a non-invasive treatment for hair loss.
Resinjection works on the theory that after you lose hair due to stress, getting more hair will make you feel better. For this reason it has been described as ‘negative psychology in action’.
The process involves taking a small amount of blood from your arm and using it to create new follicles of healthy hair through a special technology called Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM). The PRFM acts like stem cell therapy which is used in the medical world to grow skin for burn victims.
While Platelet Rich Plasma gets all the headlines when people talk about PRFM, Resinjection uses a more concentrated form of blood plasma called PRFM.
In this method, the blood plasma is heated and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the red cells from the platelets and then added back into the treated area via a series of small injections. This stimulates collagen production so hair regrowth happens naturally
The procedure takes around 45 minutes and has no side effects as it uses your own blood, which means there’s no risk of allergic reactions or rejection.
As an alternative to surgery, Resinjection is a safe treatment for men with health conditions such as heart disease or diabetes who are not suitable candidates for surgery. Also those who might have been hoping for surgery but cannot afford it.
Resinject has been used to treat patients with male pattern baldness, alopecia and even those who have lost their eyelashes due to chemotherapy.
This treatment can also be preventative and is suitable for men whose hair loss may be down the track. It’s a good idea to start early as hair loss tends to get worse over time. This treatment stimulates collagen production so hair regrowth happens naturally, this means there are no side effects from the procedure.
The initial consultation costs $200 but it’s not an obligation to proceed if you’re not happy with your results. After your first appointment you will need a top up every 4-6 months which costs around $600 each time. The whole process takes less than an hour.
