The rise in popularity of beard transplants

Hair transplants have been popular for many years now, creating incredible results in individuals who otherwise would have been left to face the consequences of widespread hair loss. But the technology has now become more diverse and instead of just transplanting the hairs on the scalp, there’s a growing demand for a different type of surgery: beard transplants. Although a lesser problem than scalp hair loss, more and more men are starting to recognise that they don’t have to put up with a disappointing beard growth and can instead have a transplant. We take a closer look at beard transplants, including what they are and their rise in popularity.

Hair Loss and Clinical Stress

We know that stress can wreak havoc with our bodies and minds, affecting everything from memory and concentration to snacking habits. Stress affects everybody; but in extreme or sustained periods of stress, this natural response may cross the clinical threshold for ill-health.

The Truth about Hair Loss: Fact or Fiction

Hair loss is often perceived to be unavoidable with up to seven out of ten men believing that there’s no reliable treatment. Centuries ago, “treatment” for hair loss involved smothering their head in chicken droppings but thankfully modern treatments aren’t just less disgusting, they’re also much more effective. Hair loss can be very effectively treated, particularly if help is sought sooner rather than later. However, there are many myths about hair loss and its causes which still persist; can you tell fact from fiction?

FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have come a long way since they first burst onto the market, and the results are now extremely natural-looking, without the “teabag” perforation marks which blighted the earliest procedures. Hair loss affects a large proportion of men and women in the UK, and transplants can now be carried out on a range of different sites including the top of the head, the eyebrows and facial hair too. The procedure is very discreet and the resulting appearance looks so natural that no-one will be able to tell that you’ve had a transplant, other than by your thicker and fuller looking hair! Modern hair transplants can be carried out via a couple of different procedures but FUE is one of the most revolutionary, offering excellent results. Here are some of the most common FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE).

Hair loss products available from our range

If you’re experiencing hair loss, you may feel anxious about the effects and be keen to prevent any further deterioration. Getting checked out by a doctor to rule out any underlying cause should always be your first stop because if there’s something triggering your hair loss, any treatment is unlikely to have much effect. Reducing levels of stress and anxiety are also very important as these can contribute very significantly to hair loss. Getting a good night’s sleep, eating a healthy diet and exercising can all help stimulate healthy hair growth. But in addition to all of this, we also offer a range of excellent hair care products which are specifically designed to treat and improve hair loss in a variety of ways. Here’s a closer look at some of the products we have available.
