Hair Loss Treatment

Androgenic alopecia is a normal pattern of hair loss affecting a large percentage of men in the population. Having this corrected is purely a cosmetic procedure.

Options for hair loss include:

  • Doing nothing ( changing hairstyle eg lightening or keeping hair very short)
  • Medical therapy, newer pharmaceuticals are having break though success- Finasteride 1 mg orally daily and/or Minoxidil 5% topical scalp application.
  • PRP injections (platelet-rich plasma) see below
    Wearing a hairpiece
  • Having hair transplant surgery, preferably FUE techniques

MEDICAL THERAPY

This is the most important aspect of your journey to better hair, before initializing any treatment you require an accurate diagnosis and reason for your hair loss. Prevention is the best medicine and it is imperative for your best outcome that we identify any mechanism to curtail any further loss. All our initial consultations are performed by Dr Little, a registered medical practitioner whom will take time to consult with you, listen to your concerns, an assessment of your hair and scalp will be made, laboratory tests may be required but are not always necessary. We need time also to explain your best options.

Make an appointment to see Dr Little for a full consultation, he will then prescribe the medications for you if you are suitable. There are no secret formulas and you should get good honest answers and the latest medical and scientifically proven treatments. Full consultation cost $140.

PRP INJECTIONS

These will be fully explained at the time of the consultation and go in hand with the pharmaceutical treatment as above. Platelet rich plasma treatment is a great way of stimulating your scalp and hair growth with your very own growth factors. The procedure involves having your own blood sample processed to produce a fraction of fluid high in your platelet cells. The platelets are small cells in your blood that are responsible for healing after you are injured. These cells contain a high concentration of growth factors- chemical mediators that induce blood supply and growth in the surrounding tissues. The platelet rich plasma is placed under the scalp under local anaesthetic. PRP cost is $550 per session.

Prevention is the best medicine and it is imperative for your best outcome that we identify any mechanism to curtail any further loss.
