When considering hair loss treatment for men the first stage in determining the optimal hair loss treatment option is the consultation process with one of our qualified doctors. Depending on the outcome of this meeting, there are three possible courses of treatment for men suffering from hair loss. In summary, the stages are:
1.The consultation process
The consultation with one of our qualified doctors comprises four elements: reassurance; proper assessment; counselling; and monitoring.
2. Medical treatment
There are two US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications which have proven effective as a hair loss treatment in more than 80% of male users with hair loss.
3. Hair transplant surgery
For those patients who are suitable candidates for hair transplant surgery, Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Transplantation (URFUT) is the gold standard in the transplantation of hair from the back of your head (which is immune to hair loss) to the areas of your head where you need it. Hair Transplant Surgery is a permanent hair loss treatment for men, the hair that is transplanted is not affected by the balding process and will, therefore, be on your head for the rest of your life.
4. Combination therapy
Combination therapy is a combination of hair loss treatment options 1, 2 and 3.
For female patient’s the hair loss treatment protocol is different – please see our page hair loss in women for more details.
