No, we do not offer Finance options, this was too costly for our clients, so we made the decision to stop finance payments. You can however make installed payments prior to your surgery date.

Do I have to cut my hair short?

In certain cases we will cut the hair short depending on the required number of grafts. However, in short cases such as more density, you can choose to keep your hair longer.

Am I a suitable candidate for an FUE?

We always advise arranging a free consultation as there are many variables to investigate including your age, family history of hair loss, and type of hair loss. These factors determine your overall suitability for treatment, we will always do the right thing for our clients and advise accordingly.

How long before I see the end results?

The transplanted hair will begin to shed at 3-6 weeks post procedure and will then take a further 2-4 months to start re-growing. At around the 6-month stage we expect the regrowth to be at the 50% completion stage and the final result is achieved at 12-14 months. The progress can vary depending on the individual, we always recommend you have a 6 month catch up at the clinic so we can review the progress.

Will the results looks natural?

We have a strict protocol that ensures we only have certified doctors completing the extraction to ensure the naturalness of the final result. The FUE hair transplant procedure requires excellent surgical skills and natural artistic flair and we encourage our clients to visit our before and after photos on our website and Instagram.

The FUE procedure is a very safe and minimally invasive procedure under local anaesthetic. There are very few potential health risks and, as with any surgical procedure, we take full medical precautions including ECG tests & a 15-minute medical examination prior to your procedure to ensure your safety.

Shock loss is the loss of pre-existing or transplanted hair due to the trauma of a surgical procedure. The incidences of shock loss are rare, and any hair loss caused is temporary and normal growth returns after a period of 1-2 months.
