3 Alternatives To Getting A Hair Transplant


When showing the first signs of balding many men want quick results. Drastic times call for drastic measures, right?

It’s no wonder then, that many turn to a hair transplant – a complex and costly process during which a surgeon removes follicles from one part of the head and then re-inserts them into the affected patch of scalp. The trouble is, it can be long and painful, and also does nothing to stop future hair loss. Not to mention the worrying rise in unlicensed practitioners offering dodgy procedures.

So before going down that route, why not consider some of the more effective (and less hair-raising) alternatives.

Finasteride

What if we told you there was a hair loss solution that didn’t involve an operation at all, but instead involved a clinically-proven pill being delivered directly to your door. Introducing: Finasteride, the central pillar in our highly effective hair loss treatments.

Finasteride first arrived in the UK in pill form in 2002, and since then it’s become one of the most successful treatments for hair loss available. There’s a reason it plays such a big role in the treatments our expert consultants prescribe to counter hair loss. Rather than literally replacing your hair, as a transplant attempts to do, Finasteride blocks the hormone that causes hair loss – DHT. And again, unlike hair transplants, which have varied levels of success depending on the quality of the procedure, Finasteride is a tried, tested and approved medication with consistent and reliable results. In fact, a massive 9 out of 10 men have found it to help them halt hair loss, or grow more hair. And not a scalpel in sight!

Minoxidil

Meet Minoxidil, Finasteride’s partner in crime – and the only other FDA approved pharmaceutical treatment for male pattern baldness. It’s another key player in our range of our clinically proven and bespoke hair loss plans. Minoxidil works by increasing your blood flow, supercharging your hair follicles and stimulating hair growth. In either scalp spray form, or in shampoo formulas, it’s proven to be highly successful. Studies show two thirds of men with male pattern baldness enjoyed an improvement after using it. It’s best used as part of our personalised hair loss service, most likely in combination with Finasteride. We can help work out the best treatment for you during a free online consultation.

Low level laser therapy

While a combination of Finasteride and Minoxidil remains the least invasive, most discreet way of handling hair loss, recent advancements in technology have opened the door to new solutions.

Easily claiming the prize for “coolest sounding hair loss treatment”, is Low-Level Laser Therapy. This treatment, cleared by the FDA we should add, uses clinical-strength laser technology to treat thinning hair by stimulating hair follicles and induce regrowth. National Institute of Health studies have found LLLT to be both safe and effective. Despite the James Bond-esque scenario currently racing through your head, the laser doesn’t cause any thermal or heat damage, meaning no cutting and no burning.

Granted, it doesn’t have the legacy of medical backing that Finasteride and Minoxidil have under their belts – and nothing beats a personalised hair loss package delivered to your door – but is it preferable to going under the knife? Most definitely.
