Am I A Candidate For Hair Transplants?

Have you been researching the various hair loss treatment options but can’t decide on which one is right for you? We know that over two-thirds of men and women suffering hair loss use some form of remedy or therapy without a proper medical diagnosis which leads to incorrect and ineffective treatment and poor results.

In this article we explain the indicators for those who are suitable for hair implants as well as the conditions where an alternative treatment would be recommended.

Who Is Suitable For Hair Transplants?

Hair transplants are suitable if you are in good general health and your hair loss is affecting your self-confidence or self-esteem.

You may not be a suitable candidate for Gro hair implants if:

  • You don’t have enough hair in the donor area to get sufficient donor follicles
  • The recipient/ transplant area isn’t able to support the donor graft
  • You have unrealistic expectations about what hair transplant can achieve
  • You are unable or unwilling to undergo the procedure and follow post-operative care instructions

The only way to determine your suitability for Gro hair implants is to book a consultation.

What Are The Other Options?

Alternative options to hair transplant procedure include:

Scalp Micropigmentation increases the appearance of hair density and covers bald areas. Non-toxic pigment is applied to the area in a series of small dots simulating hair follicles, to colour the scalp and give the illusion of higher hair density. Micropigmentation is a good option if hair transplants are not suitable but can also be used in combination with a hair transplant to improve results.

Hair prosthesis (wig or hair piece) to cover the hair loss.


Looking For Hair Loss Prevention?

If hair transplant isn’t right for you just yet, or you are just looking for prevention or to thicken up your hair, then growth factor therapy could be right for you.

PRP Therapy is a new treatment method for patients suffering from alopecia. Treatment takes place through the injection of autologous serum into the scalp; with the goal of stimulating the scalp to endorse hair growth.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment can thicken hair and stimulate new hair growth. A small amount of blood is taken and the blood cells removed to leave behind the plasma, containing growth factors and nutrients that stimulate follicle activity. The plasma is injected into the scalp where hair loss is occurring to improve hair growth.
