How much should Hair Loss Treatments Cost in Australia?
This is a popular question but first we should divide Tangible and Intangible hair loss solutions to give a clear picture. Tangible Hair Loss Solutions are where a client gets immediate and physically altered solutions, where as Intangible is where the treatment may take time to receive results.
Replique Hair Loss Clinics in Sydney and Brisbane only offer Tangible Hair Loss solutions, so our clients walk in with noticeable Hair Loss and walk out with the appearance of a fuller head of hair. This is either achieved through Scalp Micropigmentation or Hair Pieces.
Intangible hair loss solutions are medication, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and laser hair regrowth technology.
FUE and FUT Hair Transplants sometimes fall in between the two as the physical results of moving hair from one part of the scalp to another are obvious, but sometimes the hair follicles need to regrow.
In terms of what is the cheapest tangible hair loss solution in Sydney, Brisbane and Australia? Scalp Micropigmentation at Replique Clinic is arguably the most cost effective. We have an amazing value pack SMP offer which is from $2800 for three SMP sessions then a touch up in 12 months, having performed thousands of Scalp Micropigmentation sessions, we find our clients who purchase the Intro Package get at least 4 years of strong coverage before needing to come in for a touch up. This equates to being approximately $720 per year, then most clients need a one or two hour touch up to extend the life of the SMP for another few years making the treatment very long lasting and affordable.
Semi Permanent Hair Pieces are a fantastic option for guys who want longer hair. Our hair pieces are the highest quality but at entry level prices. They are from $800 (plus a fee of $180 for the fitting, haircut, hair care pack, rebond pack and free rebond). Subsequent hairpieces are just $850 including the hairpiece and haircut. Most clients go through one to two Classic by Replique Hair Pieces per year. We train clients to rebond at home, or for a fee we can rebond for them. If rebonding at home then clients may spend approximately $200 per year on rebond products so the minimal cost for a hairpiece per year is at least $1000 per year.
Hair Transplants are a great option for guys who still have a lot of hair and just need a small amount of the hair loss area treated. Unfortunately, once Male pattern baldness commences, there isn’t much that can be done to slow it down or halt it so a hair transplant is only successful if a client has a lot of hair in the donor site and willing to go on hair loss medication which can have some harsh side effects on sex drive and performance. In terms of cost, a simple google search can show that hair transplants are from $11,000 to $30,000 with 3000 hair transplant units costing approximately $12,000. 3000 hairs may seem like a lot but on average adults have 100,000 hairs in their scalp so 3000 hairs being moved from one part of the scalp to another may only be useful for a small part of the hair loss area such as a hairline.
