We use specialised oral and topical medications, some of which are naturally occurring herbal products and minerals, and supplements essential to hair growth, combined with laser stimulation to the scalp.
To properly manage the problem of hair loss we like to take a holistic approach here at GMC Cosmedical in Randwick and Narellan. This is why we offer a treatment programme rather than just types of treatment, and as a result, we have the highest success rate for both men and women, with a satisfaction rate of around 90%.
The aim of the treatment is twofold, firstly to slow down or halt the hair loss process itself and secondly to stimulate and reactivate the dormant hair follicles into regrowing new hair again. There is no surgery involved and the treatment is safe and painless. A medical assessment must first be carried out to exclude other causes which may require different treatment.
We use specialised oral and topical medications, some of which are naturally occurring herbal products and minerals, and supplements essential to hair growth, combined with laser stimulation to the scalp. Because of our affiliation with a research and development foundation, we are able to offer the very latest in treatment knowledge and products from developments both nationally and internationally, so our patients can be assured that their treatment programmes are the latest developments.
The results are typically seen within 3-4 months in the average patient – we generally see thinning, limp, wispy hair converted to the hair of improved quality, strength, colour and numbers, and the hair looks thicker with more body. Further improvement takes place over the next 6-12 months. Obviously the earlier the intervention in the hair loss process the more hair that can be saved and the better the end result but regardless of your stage or age, as long as you have hair you want to save, the treatment will help you do this.
It is important to realise that this is a long-term management programme. The first 6 to 12 months of treatment are the most intensive to enable us to get the best and quickest results possible. After these first 12 months, the hair stabilises and the treatment is reduced further to a simple maintenance level so that we can retain the benefits achieved. Please note that if the treatment is ceased completely then these achievements will be gradually lost again, so long-term maintenance treatment is essential.
