MALE HAIR LOSS
Hair loss in men is an incredibly common occurance, however with men this hair loss usually has less stigma attached to it. At Better Hair Transplant Clinics, we treat all types of male hair loss, however in order to determine the most effective course of treatment on an individual basis we first need to determine the type of hair loss that you are experiencing.
Generally, male hair loss can be separated into three different categories. The first category of this is Androgenetic Alopecia, more commonly known as male pattern baldness, and is the most common form of male hair loss affecting over 90% of men who experience hair loss. Usually, this will begin with a receding hair line and will often result end in severe levels of hair loss.
Loss of facial hair occurs for a number of reasons including laser hair removal, electrolysis, surgery, burns, injury or simply as a result of genetics. The majority of of goals from this type of procedure vary from a minor filling in or thin coverage of a small area all the way through to a full restoration of a thick full goatee or beard area. The procedure itself can be performed and carried out on areas where there is little to no hair or on areas where hair growth is thin and the client desires more fullness.
Scalp micropigmentation, more commonly referred to as SMP, is not simply an ordinary hair tattoo but is in fact a highly specialised process where tiny deposits of pigment are injected within the dermal layer of the skin. When this is performed by a skilled practitioner such as one of our own highly qualified surgeons, these deposits can replicate the look of real shaven hair.
PRP HAIR TREATMENTS
These growth factors are naturally occurring substances within the body which are capable of stimulating cell growth which in turn helps to promote healing by helping to restore the normal architecture and strength within the tissue. During a PRP injection, the clients own blood is processed at high speed within a centrifuge to remove the red blood cells, which results in a higher concentration of the client owns platelets than whole blood, and is then injected into the scalp to promote local healing, increase blood flow and aid in stimulating hair follicles to grow stronger and healthier.
Eyebrow transplantation is an incredibly challenging aesthetic procedure to perform, but when this is carried out by experts it provides some of the most impressive results. This procedure can be performed using either the FUE or FUG/strip technique, though the most important aspect of this regardless of which method is used is the careful creation of recipient sites for the transplanted hairs as the surgeon needs to follow the natural direction and angulation of growth, as well as the aesthetic design of creating natural appearing eyebrows that will further complement the patient’s facial features.
Male Pattern Baldness
Generally, male pattern baldness follows a set pattern, starting with a receding hairline which is then followed by the thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. This is the most common type of hair loss in men and in most cases starts around the late 20s or early 30s, by the time most men have entered their late 30s they have experienced some degree of hair loss. In a lot of cases, male pattern baldness leaves a horseshoe shape of hair around the back and sides of the head and can occasionally progress to complete baldness, though it is very rare for it to do so.
Finasteride is available as a prescription-only hair loss medication and is widely known under the brand name Propecia, however the actual medication is Finasteride and you will actually pay a lower amount for the same product if you avoid the branded version.
It belongs to a group of medicines called 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors and has been used as a method of treating hair loss since 1990.
