Non Surgical Hair Loss Treatments

The professional market offers a number of non surgical hair loss treatments for common hair loss concerns. Dependent on the extent of hair loss progression, a Patient’s post consultation treatment plan may include non surgical hair loss treatments which compliment surgical hair restoration or consist entirely of non surgical recommendations if the Patient is fortunate enough to have caught the onset of baldness in time.

Non surgical hair loss treatments are utilised in 2 ways:

1) To retain and improve the aesthetic visual appearance of existing hair – creating thicker, fuller hairs
2) To reduce or eliminate further hair loss, retaining existing hair

The number of non clinical products available is growing every day yet their lack of efficacy in combating the onset of progressive baldness or in improving the texture and thickness of the existing hair shafts renders them useless in a clinical environment. Patients would be strongly advised against spending time and money on well marketed treatments that are for the most part purely cosmetic.

The number of proven clinical solutions is limited to two which are recognised by experts and industry bodies internationally. It is these treatments upon which our expert clinical consultants will base their guaranteed treatment plan and therefore are notable for discussion in further detail here.

As a clinic we are able to prescribe the strongest hair loss medication to our Patients, devising and fulfilling Surgeon approved treatment plans that will yield optimal and sustainable results in minimum time. They must also be appropriate to the Patients’ lifestyle.

Minoxidil is the first of two medications clinically proven for the treatment of hair loss and is effective for both men and women. It is medically proven for androgenetic alopecia (at the very early stages of hair loss).

Improve Visual Appearance

Patients must be mindful that whilst non surgica hair lossl treatments can be excellent solutions to early stages of hair loss they will only potentially work if there is still a live follicle. If the follicle is dead then visual thickening can only be achieved by the transplanting of DHT resistant donor hairs to the affected area.

Reduce Future Hair Loss

In more cases than not, unless a Patient is completely bald they will wish to retain their existing non transplanted hair. If you understand why you lose your hair and how this cycle may be reversed then the reasons behind the global popularity of Finasteride, the world’s number one non surgical hair loss treatment remedy will become clear. At UK Hair we think it’s important for you to have the information you need to make an informed choice regarding the treatment options available to you.

Ideal Patients for Finasteride

When follicles are dying due to the body’s DHT attacking follicles, your hair starts to miniaturize. Depending on the severity, this may result in having thousands of hairs that can only be seen under a specialist microscope. In these instances it is not possible to transplant as there are still live Follicles in the scalp, which means there is no space to implant new hairs. If you attempted to transplant into this area, it is likely that none of the transplanted hair would grow.

70% Of suitable Patients can achieve visually thicker hair by taking Finasteride

Clinical studies over the last 10 years have scientifically proven this – the secret is to establish the SUITABILITY of Patients. We see lots of Patients who have purchased Finasteride directly from the internet and who have had no suitability test performed. This has resulted in no growth because medication was inappropriate.

Sounds Great So Why Doesn’t Everyone Take Finasteride?

Your suitability for Finasteride is dependent on the nature of your Hair loss. Finasteride was developed to treat mild to moderate male pattern hair loss on the vertex (top of head) and anterior mid-scalp area (middle front of head) There is not sufficient evidence that Finasteride works for receding hairlines at the temples.

How long will I have to take the tablet?

This depends, If you stop using the medication, the hair loss will start again, but this does not mean you will be on it the rest of your life. why ? This is simply , whilst hair loss is a concern now, it may not be in the future. As your life progresses, your priorities may change, and you might decided to stop taking the tablet. In our experience, Patients are normally on the tablet for a maximum of 10 years.

Finasteride does not work in Women

Propecia, the brand name for finasteride which is a type of non surgical hair loss treatments is the only FDA approved oral medication for hair loss. Propecia contains 1mg of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Finasteride and must be taken daily without deviation from the dosage plan to maintain efficacy.

Tried and Tested Over 16 Years

Finasteride was first licensed by the FDA (US Governments drug licensing authority) for Hair loss in 1997 and has 16 years of research suggestive of proof that it is a safe and effective drug to conquer hair loss.

1 Million Users In The USA Alone

In the US alone there are over 1 million men currently on this medication many of which have dramatically improved both the thickness of their hair and as a result their confidence through continued use. Across the world Finasteride use extends to over 10 million satisfied Patients who are prolonging the life of their existing hair with a consistent dose of Finasteride.

Finasteride is administered orally in tablet form, consumption of the recommended daily dose does in the majority of cases lead to noticeable results between 6 and 12 months from first use.

Finasteride – Medication side Effects

Whilst clinical studies showed that side effects were uncommon and did not affect most, it is still important that all those considering Finasteride take into account the possible side effects, the severity of which may vary between individuals from negligible/ not at all to severe in a minority of reported cases.

When choosing to take Finasteride you must ensure that for your individual case the benefits of its proven efficacy outweight the possible adverse reactions which whilst unlikely may impact you. As with the impact on Hair growth any residual effects will reverse as soon as you stop taking Finasteride.

A very small number of men had mild sexual side effects. Symptoms include lower libido, acute erectile dysfunction and semen quantity depletion These include less desire for sex, difficulty in achieving an erection, and a decrease in the amount of semen. In the unlikely event that you receive side effects, to the best of our knowledge there is no scientific evidence, of long term side effects if you cease the medication.

Clinical studies for side Effects

Advances in the preparation of Finasteride have further suppressed side effects yet the stories still circulate and grow in severity as they are passed between listeners. Because of its popularity and increased desire for use to understand the reality vs the myth several studies have been commissioned into the side effects of Finasteride. Clinical trials that compared side effects of a group of men who took the drug with a group of men who thought they were taking the medication, but who in fact were just taking a sugar pill. The following results were telling:

Patients Who discontinued the drug due to adverse experiences

1.4% Were taking Finasteride
1.6% Were taking a sugar pill
Patients who claimed that since starting the course their libido had decreased

1.8% Were taking Finasteride
1.3% Were taking a sugar pill
Cnly 1 in 200 people experienced an increase in lack of sexual desire as a possible result of taking the medication.

UK Hair Transplant Clinics - Why do I lose my hair?

Why Do I Lose My Hair?

Male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia is caused by the effects of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on genetically susceptible hair follicles. The follicles in the front, top and crown of the scalp (rather than the back and sides) are particularly susceptible to the damaging effects of DHT. DHT causes hair loss by shortening the growth, or anagen, phase of the hair cycle, causing miniaturization (decreased size) of the follicles. The effected hair becomes progressively shorter and finer until it eventually disappears which is why more and more men are choosing non hair loss surgical treatments.

UK Hair Transplant Clinics - How Can I Get Rid of DHT?

How Can I Get Rid Of DHT?

You cant. DHT is formed by the action of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase on testosterone. The more testosterone that you have, the higher the level of DHT you are going to produce. It’s a cruel taunt of nature that dictates the more of the masculine hormone you have in your body the quicker you will lose one of the attributes that defines you as a man which is why more and more men are choosing non surgical hair loss treatments.

UK Hair Transplant Clinics - so if i cant get rid of it how can i stop it?

So If I Cant Get Rid of It How Can I Stop It?

The only way to reduce the effects of DHT and prevent the hair loss for which it is responsible is to disable it. The non surgical hair loss treatments Propecia or Finasteride (generic) does just this. Finasteride contains active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) that blocks the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. Finasteride stops DHT attacking your follicles and as a result prevents future hair loss. The sooner you embark on a course of Finasteride, the more quickly your hair loss will cease when followed as instructed.
