Losing hair can be pretty distressing, often leading to a lack of confidence and low self-esteem. The great thing is, you don’t have to just accept it. In fact, here at DHI Manchester, we offer a range of treatments that can give you that boost of confidence that you need to get back to being yourself. But with so many options, which hair loss treatment should you choose?
Micropigmentation is unlike our other procedures which involve actually stimulating hair growth or implanting active follicles. Instead, it is like a tattoo, giving the appearance of thicker hair. This is a procedure often chosen by people who are suffering from hair thinning or bald patches.
As the procedure gives the appearance of a full head of hair, it can be incredibly effective at giving patients a regained sense of confidence and self-esteem.
However, for those who are suffering from more serious hair loss, this method can be used to accompany a hair transplant in order to achieve the desired look.
PRP therapy stands for platelet rich plasma therapy and offers an innovative and effective form of hair replacement. The great thing about PRP therapy is that it uses what you already have, stimulating hair follicles – both active and inactive. This is a relatively non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve surgery like other procedures.
The procedure is carried out by first extracting around 50ml of blood from the patient. The plasma that is rich in platelets is isolated then activated with DNA activators and enriched with calcium ions. This is then injected into the area suffering from hair loss, stimulating existing hair follicles and boosting inactive hair follicles, allowing for hair growth where there wasn’t any before.
This method is ideal for someone who is experiencing the early stages of hair loss. If your hair is thinning or bald patches are appearing, this may be the perfect option. When hair loss is still in the early stages, we would advise against some of the more drastic procedures that are more invasive.
Hair implantation and restoration is a popular procedure as it delivers dramatic results that many of our patients are looking for. After a consultation with one of our doctors, a suitable donor area is identified – this could be anywhere on the body that has the required hair follicles. The follicles are removed from the donor area one at a time. They are then implanted into the affected area using the DHI Implanter, our patented implantation device which avoids leaving behind visible scarring.
This method is particularly effective and can achieve incredibly natural looking results as your doctor can control the depth, direction and angle of each implanted follicle. This method is often chosen by those who are experiencing more drastic hair loss.
There are many options to choose from, but our doctors are able to advise you on the best treatment or procedure for you.
