Non-surgical treatments for hair loss

Hair loss can be a troubling concern for many of us: we can lose self-confidence and have anxiety if we suffer from it.

In many cases, more invasive types of hair replacement surgery are not appropriate or necessary.

We offer three non-surgical, non-invasive treatments for men and women with hair loss: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, Mesotherapy and Low Level Light therapy.

PRP therapy

A simple procedure that involves injecting your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into your scalp, to encourage growth factors in your blood to stimulate hair growth.

Mesotherapy for hair loss

A ‘vitamin boost’ injection into the scalp that helps to improve blood circulation, at the same time nourishing the hair follicles and encouraging hair re-growth.

Low level light (LLL) therapy

LLL therapy uses red light to increase blood flow in the scalp – it’s believed to stop hair loss in 85% of cases and stimulate new hair growth in 55% of cases.

About hair loss

Hair loss for men and women

By the age of 50, half of all men will have experienced some form of hair loss.

This can start as early as age 20 and for some, it can mean a lifetime of embarrassment, emotional stress and even, in some cases,  depression.

It’s not only men however, who suffer with hair loss and for women too, the condition can be devastating. It is thought that around 50% of women over the age of 65 can experience pattern hair loss, and younger women can suffer for the same reasons as men.

Society tells us that women should have long and flowing locks to be sensual and feminine. So it’s not surprising that, if affected by this condition, a woman can lose her confidence and worry about walking out in public – even worry whether her partner will still find her attractive.

Causes of hair loss

There are several reasons for hair loss in men and women.

For men, one well-known cause is hereditary male pattern baldness.

Other causes of temporary or permanent hair loss for women as well as men include alopecia, stress, reactions to certain medication, the result of a surgical procedure and some diseases.

Alopecia is an autoimmune condition in which the body accidentally attacks itself and the hair can start to fall out in clumps. In some cases, alopecia is temporary and sufferers regain normal hair growth. In other cases, the hair is lost permanently.

Hair loss can occur, not only on the head, but in other areas such as the eyebrows, eyelashes and on parts of the body.

Alternatives to non-surgical hair loss treatment

In your consultation, the practitioner may recommend hair transplant surgery as the best option for you.

If that is the case, she will refer you to one our affiliated hair transplant surgeons. You will be able to discuss in more detail with them your need for a surgical approach to hair loss.

The surgeon is likely to recommend one of the latest developments in the hair transplant surgery – the follicular unit extraction (non-scar) technique.
