As we look to start the gym again and look after ourselves, you may notice your hair receding more since the last year or bald patches appearing. You shouldn’t need to worry as we are here to help! We have collated a few facts about hair transplants to get you in the know of what to expect:

Can hair loss be slowed down?

The simplest of answers to the question yes. UK Hair Transplant Clinic recommends the use of clinically proven hair loss medication such as Finasteride (also known as Propecia) These times of medical drugs will not grow any new hair but scientific trials have shown that they can halt or slow down natural hair loss. The use of these products can also be a huge boost to a successful hair transplant.

Is a hair transplant the only cure for male pattern baldness?

A hair transplant is the main lasting remedy for male pattern baldness. The issue of diminishing hair influences most men sooner or later lose some or a lot of hair in their lifetime. As indicated by the National Institute for Health Care and Excellence, around 33% of white men younger than 30 are losing their hair – this increments to 80% by the age of 70. Rates of male pattern baldness are slower in dark and Asian culture.

What are the causes of male pattern baldness?

This unfortunately comes mainly does come down to genes and hereditary factors such as if your father or grandfather suffered from baldness. It isn’t all down to these types of genes as male grooming such as tieing your hair in a particular style such as a top knot, ponytail or excessive use of hair styling products such as wax and gels can all be contributory factors to male pattern baldness.

When will I notice any changes in my appearance?

Once the procedure has been completed, within around 6 to 8 weeks you will start to notice the hair transplant starting to take hold. Over the course of the next 3-6 months, you will notice the hair transplant getting stronger and thicker. This is always dependant on the type of treatment you have completed but if you speak to UK Hair Transplant Clinics we will always provide the best advice.
