Specialist prescription medications restore your hair and confidence gradually, making it difficult for others to notice the tremendous change underway.
Finasteride, also known by its brand name Propecia, is a prescription-only medication for men suffering from mild to moderate hair loss. It reduces the effect of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) on the scalp’s follicles, stimulating them to recover their normal growth cycle by arresting further hair loss and allowing the strengthening and thickening of every hair shaft. Prescribed by our clinic GP, Finasteride has few if no side effects and works most efficiently when combined with low level laser and supplementary therapies.
Minoxidil, sold in low doses under several brand names, is prescribed in higher doses by our clinic GP to men and women suffering mild to moderate hair loss. Applied topically as a lotion or foam, Minoxidil widens the scalp’s blood vessels, allowing more oxygen, blood and nutrients to reach each hair follicle. It has few if no side effects, halts hair loss and stimulates strong regrowth in patients who use it indefinitely while combining it with low level laser and supplementary therapies.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Low level laser therapy is a safe, effective and affordable treatment proven to restore hair growth, enhance hair quality and alleviate psoriasis, dermatitis and scalp scaling. Undertaken in laser therapy chairs, it delivers a light spectrum which boosts blood circulation and protein production in the scalp and keratin content in hair by up to 30 percent. Patients typically undergo two 30-minute laser therapy sessions each month in conjunction with prescription medicines, supplementary therapies and surgical procedures where necessary.
Platelet Rich Plasma Procedure
PRP procedures are a natural and safe, non-surgical treatment proven to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. During the treatment, a patient’s blood is taken and then spun in a centrifuge so its plasma can be obtained for sub-cutaneous injection into the scalp under local anaesthetic. Used post-transplant or as a stand-alone procedure, the plasma’s protein-rich alpha granules and energy-rich glycogen promote cell division and new blood vessels around follicles for improved hair growth.
