Until you start losing your hair, you probably don’t appreciate how much it contributes to your sense of self. In today’s ‘selfie society’ we are constantly reminded of our appearance and are bombarded by pictures of young, fit and good looking people. If what you see in the mirror everyday reminds you that you aren’t as young as you used to be, it can be pretty devastating.
The majority of men who experience hair loss suffer from negative psychological effects, such as loss of confidence and self esteem. Many report becoming socially withdrawn because they are embarrassed about their appearance. The good news is that those who sought treatment reported feeling more positive and had increased self-esteem after treatment.
If you suffer from hair loss, answer these 3 questions to discover the best treatment option for you.
The Psychological Impact
When you start losing hair at a young age, you may ask yourself, “Why is this happening to me?” Men suffering from hair loss report higher than normal levels of depression, stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, stress is a common trigger for hair loss and may make the condition worse. The psychological impacts of hair loss on self-image can also have wider implications on social relationships. In one study, 40% of women reported problems in their marriage and 63% of men reported career-related difficulties.
What’s The Best Solution?
Despite hair loss being extremely common, it’s little comfort to the thousands of men who feel that they are ageing prematurely and are anxious or stressed or suffering psychologically.
Minoxidil (Rogaine) and Finasteride (Propecia) are two commonly used treatments that can delay or prevent further hair loss, if you use them on an ongoing, daily basis. These treatments have been shown to be effective, however their effect is temporary and needs to be maintained continuously to see the benefit. For some men, having to take a pill or apply a lotion twice a day is a nuisance and for others, potential side effects are a deterrent.
A hair transplant is the best solution that offers a permanent result. The Gro microsurgery hair transplant technique is a tested and standardised method, which takes the best approach in every step of the procedure to ensure maximum patient comfort, no scarring and 100% natural looking results, guaranteed.
The Direct Implantation Technique
The technique is considered the most advanced and delicate hair transplant technique, with natural results guaranteed. The extraction phase could be referred to as a micro-FUE as it doesn’t involve cutting into patients’ skin and only punches with diameter of 1mm or less are used to extract hairs one by one from the donor area. There are no incisions, no stitches, no detectable scarring and it is a very comfortable procedure.
The grafts are implanted with a specialised tool that allows the Certified Doctor to precisely control the density, angle, depth and direction of each and every hair, ensuring you a completely natural result. The entire procedure is always performed by a Doctor from start to finish, ensuring consistency and high quality. Gro are the only hair transplant clinics in Australia to store the grafts in a growth solution called HypoThermosolTM which sustains the survival rate of the hairs by up to 100%.
Recovery time is much quicker with no stitches and no detectable scarring. You will see an improvement in hair growth within three months, with the full results seen within 9-12 months. Gro are the only hair restoration clinics in Australia to GUARANTEE natural results.
Men who have successful treatment for their hair loss report improvements in their emotional well-being, such as improved self-esteem and feeling more attractive as a result of their treatment.
