Hair implant procedure

The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic where individual colour-matched synthetic fibres are implanted directly into the scalp.  It is relatively painless, and offers the right candidate an instant walk-in walk-out procedure. Implants can be completed in one session or carried out over a period of time if you so desire.Implants can also be combined with transplant surgery for a thickening result or to camouflage old transplant ‘plugs’. These synthetic implants have several advantages over hair transplantation surgery such as no pain, no bandages, no stitches and no time off work. The implants give a natural appearance and permit an active, sporting lifestyle.

Our medical and hairdressing staff have been specially selected and trained in the unique synthetic hair implant system so you can be assured of sound, professional advice along with first class service. This procedure does require on-going maintenance of the hair to ensure the best possible results.  A qualified consultant will assess your requirements in private and whether this procedure will suit you. The number of hair implants required will be determined by the degree of hair loss and style selected.
