Thinning hair is something that happens to everyone as we age, and while only some people experience early hair loss, everybody eventually needs a little help along the way.

There is a common misconception that hair restoration is not possible for most people, but that is simply not true. There are now more ways than ever to restore hair loss, such as hair restoration surgery, along with many other effective non-invasive treatment options.

The most effective treatment depends on a range of factors, such as lifestyle and gender. In general, treatments are most effective for men suffering from hair loss although that is not to say there is no help at all for women.

What Causes Hair to Become Thinner?

In men and women, hair loss can happen prematurely as a result of pattern hair loss or a hereditary hair loss condition. In men, the most common condition is male pattern baldness, which affects more than 35% of men early on worldwide. By the time men reach 50-years old, it affects 65% of men or more. For women over 50, common causes of hair loss are hereditary conditions and menopause.



There are two drugs that are widely considered to be effective in treating hair loss in men. The first is Finasteride, which blocks the hormone responsible for hair loss. It is an oral medication available commercially as ‘Propecia’ and is thought to be effective in stopping hair loss for up to 80%.

The second effective medication is Minoxidil. It is a solution that is applied to the scalp twice per day and is available commercially as ‘Regaine’. It is a hair restoration treatment option for both men and women suffering from hair loss.

These hair loss treatment options are recommended and prescribed as an alternative to surgical procedures if you are looking for a non-invasive solution. It is also a more affordable treatment option.

Platelet Rich Plasma (or Vampire Therapy) is a new technique in which a blood sample is removed from your arm then processed in a centrifuge before the plasma and growth factors are removed and re-injected into the scalp.

The treatment is performed once per month for three months, followed by a maintenance session every 3 to 6 months thereafter. There is a growing amount of evidence that this can increase both the number of hair follicles growing and thicken the individual follicles. It is suitable for both men and women with a hereditary hair loss condition or hair loss affected by health and lifestyle factors. Vampire Therapy is one of the best treatments for hair loss.

Strip Hair Transplants is one of the three non-surgical procedures we offer for the transplantation of hair grafts. In this procedure, we transplant hair by removing a strip of hair from the back of the head or where hair growth is the densest.

Individual follicular units are then dissected under the microscope and replanted to the top of the head.

This procedure tends to be most effective for men since they normally retain a good density of hair at the back of the head as opposed to women who tend to go thin all over. This procedure is becoming less common now, due to the rise of the less invasive version called FUE (follicular unit extraction).

Follicular Unit Extraction or Follicular Transfer is a surgical procedure that involves shaving the back of the head and extracting individual hair follicles using a small punch. Once the hair follicles are obtained they are replaced on to the top/front part of the head to restore hair loss. This treatment has been designed to avoid leaving a straight-line scar around the back of the head. It is gradually replacing the traditional PRP strip method of hair transplant.

FUE transplants are preferred because it lasts longer than non-surgical treatment options. The surgery works by moving your existing hair to an area where hair is thin or where you have experienced a high volume of hair loss. Given that existing healthy hair is used and replanted, it is a long-term solution recommended for people that have been diagnosed with pattern hair loss, alopecia, and other serious hair conditions.
