No, in the early stages of male and female androgenic alopecia (also known as pattern baldness), prescription oral and topical medications may be enough to improve and prevent further deterioration of your hair density. Certain types of alopecia are more serious and require medical management and are not appropriate for hair transplantation.
The vast majority of healthy men and women with androgenetic alopecia are good candidates for hair transplantation. Following your initial consultation you will have a clear understanding of what your options are in regard to hair transplantation. You will also have a short and long term hair restoration plan in place.
We offer FUE manual, FUE ARTAS Robotic FUE and FUT-Strip Hair Transplants tailored to our client’s individual circumstances, needs and goals.
We offer competitive pricing depending on the number of follicular units required to sufficiently cover the area that is in need of transplantation.

We will provide you with information and clear instructions to ensure that you are optimally prepared for your hair transplant.
Post-hair transplant care is provided by Dr. Bea Gerbrands and her team. Hair washes, scalp care and low level light therapy are included in your hair transplant package.
Individual healing time varies. We recommend you take 7-10 days off from work to take care of yourself at home and to attend your post-hair transplant care appointments. During this time you may return to ordinary activities of daily living.
The tiny scabs in the grafted area require on average 7 to 10 days to fall off. Sutures, if used, are usually removed 10 days after your hair transplant. You may experience some swelling of your forehead which will last 7 to 10 days. The newly grafted area of your scalp may have a pinkish tinge for up to 1 month. If you had an FUE hair transplant, the donor area usually heals within 7 days.
We make every effort to ensure you have a pain-free experience during your hair transplant. This includes a local anesthetic to numb the scalp prior to and during the procedure. We provide oral medications to relieve discomfort, anxiety and insomnia during and after the procedure. We recommend icing of the forehead area to minimize swelling within the first three days after the procedure.
The average duration for transplanted hair to start showing growth is 6 to 12 months. We offer various treatments that are proven to facilitate healing and hair growth after the procedure.
Post-hair transplant care is provided by Dr. Bea Gerbrands and her team. Hair washes, scalp care, and medical grade low level light therapy are included in your hair transplant package.
We recommend wearing your favourite ball cap to protect your scalp from the sun in the first 3 months following your hair transplant.
We recommend a minimum of six to eight months before you repeat a FUT/Strip hair transplant and 3 months after an FUE hair transplant, providing you have enough donor area hair.
