Hair Loss

Ask anyone that suffers with hair loss and they’ll tell you just how debilitating and depressing it can be. It generally affects more men than women, and can be caused by a number factors, from hereditary genetics to underlying medical conditions, such as alopecia. The first signs of hair loss can start as early as late teenage years and early 20s for some unlucky men, but signs tend to occur over time as we age.

While some men take it in their stride, others find it to be a source of embarrassment, particularly when hair loss hits at a younger age. It can be deemed as unattractive, which prompts men to seek medical attention and treatment. There are endless products and treatments that claim to remedy hair loss, yet finding a solution that really works for you is never easy. What works for one patient might not work for the next, which is why we offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant at North West Aesthetics.

We also provide Minoxidil 5% and Propecia at North West Aesthetics:

Minoxidil solution and foam are used to help hair growth in the treatment of male pattern baldness, but it is not used for baldness at the front of the scalp or receding hairline in men. The foam and minoxidil solution is also used to help hair growth in women with thinning hair.

Propecia is a prescription tablet taken once a day by men with male pattern baldness. It reduces the effect of hormones on hair follicles, which can prevent and even reverse hair loss.

Frequently asked questions

The FUE transplant is a modern, advanced type of transplant as opposed to more traditional techniques, such as strip harvesting transplantation. Hair follicles from a donor area, which more often than not tends to be from the neck, are intricately extracted before being transferred and implanted into the recipient area using the most advanced technology and techniques. In comparison to other methods, this is far less invasive and requires only local anaesthetic.

An FUE hair transplant moves your own hair from one place to another, allowing it to continue to grow naturally, enhancing your appearance and restoring lost confidence and self-esteem.

Your transplant is likely to last a full day in clinic as this is a bespoke treatment.

An FUE hair transplant is completed in 2 or more treatments.

Unlike other transplant options, full recovery from an FUE transplant is expected within 7 days as there are no significant wounds that need time to heal. Downtime isn’t completely necessary, although we would recommend taking things easy for a few days as the scalp heals and the hair settles in place.

Post-treatment, you are likely to experience some slight bleeding at first, as well as redness and tenderness. This will subside within a week, but be sure to follow our expert aftercare advice, which may include special medications and shampoos, as well as taking extra care to be gentle around the implanted hair.

It is important to first discuss your wants and expectations with your doctor during the consultation process so that you know what to expect from you transplant. Dr Taylor will fully assess your suitability for this type of treatment, taking into consideration any existing health concerns, family history, and other factors. While an FUE transplant offers the best results, it might be that prescription options are better suited to you. A good candidate also needs to have healthy hair growth within donor areas.

At North West Aesthetics, our friendly and attentive team prioritise your wants and needs, offering bespoke treatment plans that work specifically for you. We take the time to get to the bottom of your concerns via a thorough consultation, before then considering the best possible course of action. A high standard of treatment and care is imperative, which is why our staff are extensively trained and experienced in all aspects of advanced non-surgical aesthetics, led by renowned medical doctor, Dr David Taylor.
