Hair Loss Treatments Sydney

Get natural looking results with our hair loss treatment options.

Hair loss, thinning hair, male and female pattern baldness, and receding hairlines are common in people of all ages. And yet, the solutions to these problems are often hushed up due to perceived shame and embarrassment over losing one’s crowning glory.

At Ashbrooke Cosmetic Surgery, we provide patients with the appropriate hair loss and hair regrowth treatments –both surgically and non-surgical – that will give them their desired results. Our team of doctors, specialists, and medical assistants have extensive experience and knowledge to ensure you receive the best care possible, from consultation to surgery, recovery to maintenance.

Causes of Hair Loss and Thinning Hair

Hair loss can be attributed to multiple factors. It may be triggered by chronic stress, hormonal changes, crash diets, medications, chemotherapy, environmental pollution, hair products and chemicals, or it could be genetic. Most people who experience hair fall and baldness usually suffer from a combination of these causes.

With this in mind, dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and other healthcare professionals will often advise patients on a regime of mixed hair loss solutions to address the problem. Before you make any decisions about how to tackle the issue, it’s best to have an initial consultation with a licensed medical expert.

Hair Loss Treatments Sydney

Hair loss treatments can usually be categorised into surgical and non-surgical solutions. After your consultation, you will be advised on the treatments available to you and what are the options that have the highest success rate in stimulating new hair growth and getting you your desired results.

Non-surgical hair loss treatment

At Ashbrooke we often encourage our patients to first try treating their hair problem with non-surgical solutions. We try to avoid any unnecessary cost and invasive treatments until all other options have been exhausted to minimise the burden on our patients.

There are many topical, oral, and natural hair loss remedies available on the market which have been scientifically proven to work.

  • Minoxidil – A liquid solution applied to the scalp to stimulate hair growth and revitalize hair follicles.
    Propecia – An oral medication that stimulates the scalp to produce new hairs and improve hair growth. Note that this medication needs supervision from your doctor and has to be continuously ingested for maximum efficacy.
  • Traditional hair pieces and wigs – Hair pieces are quick solutions to cover a receding hairline, permanent hair loss, and a balding area. These need to be maintained however and the costs of maintenance can be expensive.
  • Herbal shampoos and tonics – There are many natural shampoos and tonics that can be applied to the head and bald areas that are scientifically proven to improve collagen and elastin production to restore hair and stimulate the hair follicle for growth.

Surgical hair loss treatment

If the above treatment does not produce the desired results, we will encourage patients to consider surgical solutions like a hair transplant, micrografting, follicular unit transplantation to address male and female hair loss.

Hair Transplant Sydney

A hair transplant surgery involves harvesting hair from a donor area and relocating those to cover bald areas and thinning hair. This hair restoration process has evolved over the years and the advanced techniques employed have resulted in many satisfied patients with improved self esteem from their new look.

At Ashbrooke, we offer micrografting and follicular unit extraction (FUE) to our patients. Both hair transplantation procedures are safe and offer desirable results.

Micrograft Hair Transplant

Micrografting is a relatively new hair transplant procedure that is less invasive, leaves less visible scarring, and has a shorter recovery time than traditional hair transplant surgery.

Your surgeon will harvest a strip of skin (called a “graft”) from the donor area, typically along the nape where hair follicles are strongest and vast, prepare it for hair transplantation, and attach it with miniature incision onto bald areas on your head.

The transplanted hair will normally fall out within 3-6 weeks while new hair will grow in its place. The procedure takes 4-6 hours and you will be able to go home immediately. Your doctor might prescribe a few anti-inflammatory medications and topical ointments to help in the healing process.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE hair transplantation)

Traditional hair transplantation is more invasive, more time-consuming, and more expensive. In an FUE hair transplant procedure, instead of harvesting a strip of hair, ind hair grafts are extracted and the hair follicles are implanted individually onto the bald areas.

Surgeons will need to make more incisions on the scalp so there will be more scarring. An FUE hair transplant will also likely require multiple sessions to complete the hair restoration surgery.

Recovery time also takes a bit longer in between sessions. However, with this hair transplantation method, the results are usually longer-lasting and produce stronger, more natural-looking hair on the head.

Whatever your choice of hair loss treatment is, we highly encourage you to book a consultation with our founder Dr. Nair, one of Australia’s top cosmetic doctors, to find the best hair restoration solution for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much hair loss is normal?

Hair loss concerns many people, but it’s important to know what amount of hair loss is normal. On average, losing between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day is considered typical. This process is inherent to the natural cycle of hair growth and is typically replaced by the growth of new hair.

Can you regrow lost hair?

Although there is a possibility of hair regrowth, it’s important to know when to seek professional assistance. If hair thinning is genetic, it won’t recover on its own. Restoring a healthy, full head of hair requires taking action, which entails considering different options for managing hair loss.

How long can hair loss last?

Telogen: During this resting phase, hair neither grows nor sheds, typically lasting 2 to 3 months.

Exogen: This shedding phase is when hair falls out, lasting from 2 to 5 months.
