Coronavirus / Covid-19 Information – HRBR Service Update & FAQs

My hair began to thin in my early 20’s. I first went to see Dr. Collins when I was 28.

I had tried all the treatments that the chemists had and none of them worked. So i decided to see a specialist. What i liked straight away about Dr Collins was he wasn’t pushing surgery. He said i could try Regaine and a Quarter of a tablet a day which i did for a while.Then i decided to bite the bullet and have the surgery. I got the loan out of the Credit union. That was 3 years ago and I have to say it was the best thing i ever did. I am more confident, look years younger and a lot happier looking in the mirror. Dr Collins and his team were Excellent.They are the best at what they do.

I did not take the idea of having a Hair Transplant lightly. Although I knew that I was loosing my hair, which had started to take over my life, and daily activities more than I had realized. However, it still took much consideration and research to finally take the steps to do something about it.

The hardest part of all, was finding the information on Hair Transplant Surgery. i.e The best Surgeon and Transplant Team.

The information I found was quite limited. Also I did not feel that this is a subject, that you can discuss with your peers. All I wanted was for my hair to look natural, once I had the transplant and not to look artificial in anyway…

My hair began to thin in my early 20’s. I first went to see Dr. Collins when I was 28 and I’m now 35 and have great hair and great self-confidence thanks to Dr. Collins and his team.

The process of restoring my hair started with medication, which made a significant improvement to my appearance and self-esteem and I successfully continued this treatment for 6 years before deciding on a Hair Transplant. The procedure was painless and stress-free and the amazing thing is that nobody (except me) noticed I had it done unless I told them, which I was happy to do as a result of the boost of confidence.

Now, 9 months after my transplant, my eyes are still opening to the wonderful experience of gaining a great level of self-esteem. Every day is a new delight.

My name is Frank (not real name) and this is my story. I’m sure it will help you. I first started to notice my hair loss at my 21st party. Of all nights. I was sitting at the bar with friends having some drinks. I happened to look into the mirror behind the bar. I could see a tiny bit of recession in the middle of my head. I carried on as normal, and tried not to think about it. Then many months later it started to get worse and more noticeable. This is where I choose the wrong path. I was 22 now at this stage. I saw an advert from a commercial clinic in a tabloid paper. So of course being young and vulnerable I picked up the phone. They were over the moon I phoned. I had a consultation 4 days later…

I don’t know what it is about hair, but men have a thing about it.

Some men can accept it I suppose, when baldness begins earlier in life and is a slow process; in other words, when it slowly becomes part of their appearance, even part of their character. But there are some whom baldness attacks in another way and leaves them with the dreaded comb-over. They hate the comb-over, but they hate the thought of revealing their baldness even more. And the odd thing about it is that everyone else knows they have a comb-over. Still, they don’t mind as long as the bald pate is covered…

I am a 38 year old male who underwent a very successful hair restoration procedure at HRBR in March 2009 and I wish to outline my expereince of hair loss and hair restoration at HRBR.

I first noticed my hair beginning to thin on the crown of my head in my mid twenties. I was a little concerned and changed my diet and began more exercise to reverse the situation. However nothing I did worked and by the time I was 30 my hair loss was becoming a very real concern to me and was affecting my personal confidence and my social life.

As a wheelchair user, I, Brian, would like to share my positive experience of HRBR at Sampson House with others.

I am a spinal injury T3 / T4 and last year decided to look into doing something about my hair loss. I carried out a Google search for hair restoration and found Sampson House HRBR in Blackrock, Co. Dublin. I phoned to make an appointment, stating that I was a wheelchair user. The receptionist told me that this would not be a problem since the building is fully accessible for wheelchair users.

Setting out for my first appointment and having been sent very detailed directions, I found that Sampson House was quite easy to find. Arriving for the first time, I parked my car outside the front of Sampson house clinic where there is a designated disabled parking space. I didn’t use the underground car park provided on my first visit since I wasn’t sure how to enter it. I found the access to the building itself quite easy. The reception area was easily accessed after buzzing the intercom, which is at a good height and easily reached. The front door is of a good width and easily accessed…

Just sending a quick email to thank you and all the staff at HRBR for looking after me last Thursday.

Not surprisingly, and no doubt like all your patients, I was feeling quite apprehensive and a little nervous when I arrived on the morning. But I was immediately made to feel at ease. From then on, I couldn’t have wished for the day to have gone more smoothly. Everyone that I had to deal with was extremely courteous, friendly and professional…
