Say goodbye to thinning hair!
Are you or someone you know suffering from hair loss? Are those luscious locks not looking as thick and full as they once used to? Fear not, because there’s a clinic in Cork that might be able to help.
Male and female pattern baldness (also known as androgenic alopecia) is one of the most common forms of hair loss, affecting over 50% of all men over the age of 50 to some extent with many experiencing this in their early 20’s.
This type of hair loss is responsible for approximately 94% of hair loss in men, however this can also be caused by serious illness, reaction to certain medications, extreme stress and poor nutrition.
This hereditary condition causes hair follicles to become sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is a biproduct of testosterone. Over time, hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT begin to miniaturise, producing finer hair until they eventually die and hair growth stops completely.
Sounds scary, right?
Thankfully, Ireland’s leading clinic for trichology happens to be located in the heart of Cork city, and they’ve been successfully treating patients for over 20 years. Discreetly located on Camden Place, The Hair Clinic was voted Trichology clinic of the year in 2021, and have seen over 13,000 patients suffering from hair loss since they first opened their doors.
How it works
It is imperative that treatment is sought BEFORE the root has died in order to save the hair. There are many different treatments available for hair loss at the clinic, and it is vital to first determine the cause so that an effective treatment can be recommended. This is done by means of a free no obligation consultation whereby the hair and scalp will be analysed under a capiloscope.
One of the most common treatments available at the clinic is known as Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), an extremely effective, safe, and non-invasive hair loss treatment with no side effects. It works by utilising non thermogenic laser light to stimulate hair follicles and regenerate cell growth.
LLLT treatment stopped hair loss in 85% of patients during clinical trials conducted in the US, with over 55% of patients also seeing new hair growth. It’s important to take note that LLLT can’t regrow hair on completely bald areas, therefore it is vital to start treatment as soon as possible. Patients typically notice results between 3-6 months, with the best results seen after 9-12 months.
