Thinning Hair

Hair thinning is always unpleasant as thick hair is a symbol of youth, strength and vitality. Typically, you will notice your hair becoming less dense when it starts to gradually become thinner on the crown with a widened parting and then slowly there are signs of baldness.

Hair Loss

Since there are many reasons that may have led to hair thinning, a trichoscopy examination should be performed which records and evaluates the condition of the scalp per square centimeter to establish any skin conditions or deficiencies which can then be treated appropriately.

With the help of IQ’s specialised software program, images of the hair loss are automatically analysed and the number, thickness, quality and distances between the hairs are revealed.

Depending on the cause and the degree of thinning, a treatment plan is formulated, which can be based on either conservative treatments (such as drug injections or PRP-rich plasma), hair transplantation using the IQ-FUE method or the new Scalp Micropigmentation procedure, either in combination.

Conservative Therapies

With conservative treatments, we can successfully combat hair loss, stabilise it and strengthen existing hair follicles in the early stages of thinning. The treatments are applied at our clinics are painless and are aimed at protecting and enhancing existing hair follicles, stimulating new hair growth and improving the overall density of the scalp.

Medication

Medication is first-line treatment for hair loss and hair thinning. With highly effective substances approved by the FDA of America, hair loss may stop and hair density can be greatly restored.

Autologous Enriched Plasma Mesotherapy (Magellan® TruPRP ™)

Autologous Plasma Enhanced Mesotherapy (Magellan® TruPRP ™) is a modern painless revolutionary method of treating hair loss because it is based on the administration of Platelet Rich Plasma drawn from the patient that have revitalising and trichogenic properties. It delivers long-term visible results without side effects.

Phototherapy with Low-Level Laser Treatment (LLLT)

Phototherapy using a low-level laser is a painless and completely safe treatment in which the entire scalp is exposed to three different wavelengths of light that have been shown to have a strong trichogenic effect. It works in addition to the treatment regimen.

Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy is a completely natural procedure that can work together with a course of treatment against hair loss. The aim is to increase the oxygenation and thus feed the weaker hair follicles. Carboxytherapy greatly improves microcirculation in the scalp area and absorbs the valuable vitamins and nutrients from the hair follicles. This ensures the cessation of hair loss, stabilisation of hair thinning and the stimulation of hair growth.

Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is performed during the most advanced hair thinning stages. The surgical technique can remarkably restore normal hair density. It is carried out with the most advanced IQ-FUE method, which achieves excellent results, painlessly, without scars or marks. The hairline design and the evaluation of the hair transplant results are always based on a trichoscopic examination, which guarantees the number of hair follicles to be transplanted from the donor site to the balding areas or recipient site.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation is an innovative non-invasive procedure using microneedles to replicate your natural colour hair follicles and create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. It is an extremely intricate process which adds density to thinning areas and is perfect for someone who wishes to present a thick close-cropped hairstyle.
