Hair loss treatments by Dr. André Nel

Dr. Nel will discuss your individual needs, the timeframe of the treatment plan, costs and expectations. Many factors will be considered to determine the best course of action, such as the age of the individual, stage of male pattern baldness, history of hair loss in the family, health of the patient, characteristics of the individual’s hair, non-surgical hair loss treatments and the cost of the complete treatment solution.

  • Hair transplant surgery: A hair transplant is considered a safe and minimally invasive procedure. Single hair follicles (Follicle Unit Extraction) or strips of hair follicles (Follicle Unit Strip Transplant) will be extracted from donor areas (usually the back of the head where the hair growth is still good), and transplanted to areas where hair loss occurs. Once the hair follicles are transplanted in the recipient areas, the hair will grow naturally from these follicles. The areas from which the hair follicles were harvested will heal and be covered by the surrounding hair, leaving no visible scars once the area has healed.
  • Non-surgical treatments: Non-surgical treatments will likely be combined with your hair loss surgery for the best results. Oral medication to stop the progression of hair loss, and topical treatments to promote new hair growth may be prescribed.
  • Mesotherapy: Mesotherapy is another non-surgical treatment used for hair loss and baldness, which involves the injection of a specially formulated substance containing a number of vitamins and minerals into the scalp. This substance will help to encourage healthy hair growth by improving blood circulation to the hair follicles.
  • Medical Hair Systems and Scalp Micro-Pigmentation are hair transplant surgery alternatives to consider.

You treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs, to achieve the best possible hair restoration results.
