Hair Loss Treatment

Androgenetic hair loss is often referred to as male or female pattern baldness.  It is a common type of hair loss caused due to genetic and hormonal factors.  It is characterised by progressive hair thinning and balding.  At Kaya Cosmedica, we can assist to improve the symptoms of androgenetic hair loss utilising treatments such as compounded or prescribed medications, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and LED with the aim of stimulating hair growth, improve hair density and enhancing overall hair health.

What Is Androgenetic Hair Loss?

Androgenetic hair loss, also known as male or female pattern hair loss, is a genetic condition. It is the most common type of hair loss and usually follows a predictable pattern.

In men, androgenetic hair loss typically begins with a receding hairline and thinning at the crown of the head, eventually leading to partial or complete baldness. Women are likelier to experience a widening part and noticeable thinning but rarely develop complete baldness.

Androgenetic hair loss is partly caused by the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is derived from testosterone. In individuals with a genetic predisposition, DHT can bind to hair follicles, causing them to shrink over time. As a result, the affected follicles produce thinner, shorter and less pigmented hair until they eventually cease to produce hair altogether.

While androgenetic hair loss can be distressing, treatment options are available to slow the progression of hair loss, promote hair regrowth and improve overall hair density and quality.

Hair Loss Treatments at Kaya Cosmedica

We offer a range of hair restoration treatments in South Melbourne that can address androgenetic hair loss.   

Treatment options include:

Platelet Rich Plasma & Growth Factors

PRP treatments provide a natural approach to restoring damaged or thinning hair. When administered to the scalp via injection, growth factors promote blood circulation, strengthen existing hair strands and stimulate dormant follicles to encourage new hair growth.


PRP treatments for hair restoration may offer a range of benefits:

  • Stimulates hair follicles: By awakening dormant follicles, growth factors initiate the growth of new, thicker hair strands.
  • Improves hair quality: Growth factors enhance the texture, thickness and strength of individual hair strands, resulting in fuller and healthier-looking hair.
  • Promotes natural regrowth: The treatment supports the scalp’s natural regenerative processes, aiding in repairing and rejuvenating damaged or thinning hair.
  • Minimises hair loss progression: By addressing the root causes of hair loss, growth factors may help slow down further hair loss.

Treatment Process

PRP treatment is a minimally invasive procedure. After a blood sample is taken, it is processed in a centrifuge to isolate the concentrated growth factors. The platelet rich plasma is then strategically injected into your scalp using a precise technique.

Recovery and Results

Following the procedure, you may experience temporary swelling, soreness, itching or pinpoint bleeding in the treated area. These effects typically subside within a few days.

It takes time to see results from growth factor treatments, as your scalp and follicles undergo their natural regenerative processes. Visible changes can emerge within a few weeks, and improvements can continue for several months.

Omnilux LED 633Nm Therapy

Omnilux LED therapy harnesses the power of light to stimulate hair follicles. This noninvasive treatment utilises the 633nm wavelengths of light to promote cellular repair, increase blood flow to the scalp and encourage new hair growth.


Omnilux LED Therapy may offer the following benefits for hair loss:

  • Stimulates hair follicles: Targeted light wavelengths penetrate the scalp and stimulate hair follicles, awakening dormant follicles and promoting the growth of new, healthier hair strands.
  • Increases blood circulation: By improving blood flow to the scalp, Omnilux LED therapy enhances the delivery of essential nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, creating a better environment for hair growth.
  • Strengthens existing hair: Omnilux LED therapy can improve the thickness and strength of individual hair fibres, making them more resistant to breakage and damage.

Treatment Process

During the treatment, you will be comfortably seated, and the light panels of the Omnilux device will be positioned over your scalp. The targeted light wavelengths will be emitted, stimulating the hair follicles and promoting hair rejuvenation. 

Recovery and Results

The Omnilux procedure is painless and does not require any downtime.

While individual results may vary, many patients start to notice improvements in hair thickness, strength and overall scalp health after a series of Omnilux sessions. Full results develop gradually.

Prescription Medications

Prescription medications offer a clinically-proven approach to hair restoration. These medications target the underlying causes of hair loss, helping to slow down further hair thinning and promote regrowth.


Prescription medication treatments for hair loss may offer the following benefits:

  • Inhibits hair loss: These medications work by blocking the hormones or enzymes that contribute to hair loss, helping to prevent further hair thinning and preserve existing hair follicles.
  • Stimulates hair regrowth: By addressing the root causes of hair loss, prescription medications can stimulate the regrowth of new hair strands, leading to a fuller and thicker head of hair.
  • Improves hair health: In addition to promoting hair growth, these medications can also enhance the overall health and quality of the hair, making it more resilient and less prone to breakage.

Treatment Process

Your hair loss concerns will be thoroughly evaluated during a consultation with one of our experienced practitioners. Based on your evaluation, we will provide a personalised prescription and detailed instructions on how to take the medication.

Compliance and Results

Results may take time, and consistency in medication usage is key. While some individuals may start noticing improvements in hair growth and thickness within a few months, it can take up to a year or longer to achieve full results.

Regular follow-up appointments will allow our team to track your progress and make any necessary modifications to your treatment plan.
