An Effective Way to Treat Hair Loss
If you are concerned about losing some of your hair as you age, know that there are solutions available to you. If you are already experiencing male pattern baldness or any other type of hair loss, undergoing hair transplantation or other non-surgical methods of hair restoration at Medici Capelli Clinic might be the right solution for you.
Hair transplantation is a safe and effective solution for hair loss that offers natural looking results with minimal discomfort and very little downtime. It is performed under local anaesthetic while you sit back and relax. The procedure involves removing your own living hair and moving it to the balding/thinning areas where it will regrow. These hairs will grow in exactly the same way as your other hair follicles, which means results are permanent.
When it comes to hair transplantation and non-surgical hair loss solutions, the truth is in the results. During your consultation with our practice manager, you will discuss the actual placement of your hairline as well as the expected outcome of the procedure. Medici Capelli and Dr Leat have a long and established track record of consistent results and patient safety.
What to Expect from a Hair Transplant
Here is a brief idea of what you can expect during and after your procedure at Medici Capelli on the Gold Coast.
To ensure you feel relaxed and at ease, you will be given an oral sedative before a local anaesthetic is administered.
One of two hair transplant methods will be used, follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplant (FUT). The pros and cons of both these methods will be explained to you prior to your procedure. However, both procedures are painless and the treated areas can usually be covered by existing hair to make them less visible.
Patients will be able to watch movies or read a book while their procedure is completed. Once the procedure is complete, you will be provided with a specific set of post-operative instructions that should be carefully followed to achieve the best results.
Patience will be important during your recovery process because the implanted follicles will take several months to start growing and a full year to create visible results.
Understanding Your Non-Surgical Options
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for hair transplantation and some people simply prefer not to go the surgical route even if they could. At Medici Capelli, we offer a range of non-surgical hair restoration methods that encourage natural hair growth and treat common scalp and hair growth problems.
Here are a few of the non-surgical options available to patients on the Gold Coast:
- Scalp Micropigmentation. During this procedure, small follicle shapes are tattooed on the scalp, creating the illusion of hair. In just two to three sittings, you can achieve your desired results.
- Specialised Hair Loss Treatments. If you are struggling with male pattern hair loss, generalised thinning or specific Alopecia, there are medications, shampoos conditioners available from our Gold Coast clinic that can help you treat the symptoms of this condition. Also available online
- Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy. Also known as PRP therapy, this treatment uses growth factors present in your own blood to stimulate the scalp and encourage your existing hair follicles to grow and new follicles to form.
