Hair Treatments Available at Our Hair Transplant Clinics
FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) involve removing individual hair follicles and are considered to be the least invasive procedure available.
FUT Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT) procedures involves extracting a narrow strip of tissue from the back of the scalp to provide quality donor hair follicles.
Just like a hair transplant, utilising high-quality donor hair from your scalp allows us to restore or create facial hair, resulting in a full beard.
Whether you’re looking for partial or full eyebrow restoration, eyebrow transplantation can result in full, natural brows.
Body Hair Transplant
If your donor area is lacking in quality hair follicles, a body hair transplant can use hair from areas such as your chest to be used on your scalp.
Scalp pigmentation is a non-surgical treatment that simulates natural hair stubble. Both permanent and semi-permanent options are available.
Our team of top trichologists are experienced specialists who investigate and diagnose scalp and hair issues, along with insights into possible treatments.
Hair Transplant for Women
Up to 40% of women suffer from some level of hair loss within their lifetime. We provide a permanent solution for those looking to rejuvenate their hairline.
What is a hair transplant?
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure designed to combat male pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss. The process involves surgically removing hair from the donor area — the hair on the sides and back of your head — and transplanting it into the scalp in the patient’s bald areas.
There are two common types of hair transplant procedures, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT), both of which are delicate surgeries that require a specialist to perform. Hair transplants leave minimal to no scarring and are popular with both men and women who suffer from hair loss. Learn more about our hair loss treatments.

The cost of a hair transplant varies from one patient to another and is in most cases impossible to determine without a consultation with one of our specialists.
To accurately determine the true cost of a hair transplant we first need to determine if this form of treatment is the most appropriate in your circumstance. We then need to assess the extent of your thinning/loss, the size of the area that requires treatment and determine which method of hair transplant is preferred or most advantageous. Only then will we be able to definitively offer a cost for the treatment. Analogy: You would not expect a carpet fitter to give you a price to supply and fit carpet for your hall, stairs and landing without first needing to measure up. The same principle applies to hair restoration.
A hair transplant works by redistributing hair follicles. A hair follicle is a cell that produces a keratin fibre that manifests itself and individual hairs above the surface of the skin/scalp.
A hair transplant relocates these hair follicles intact, allowing for them to resume a normal anagen growth cycle in the new location and subsequently when transplanted in there hundreds/thousands eliminate balding/thinning in areas of the scalp.
A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure that involves the safe and efficient transfer/relocation of hair-producing follicles from a donor area (typically the hair at the back and sides of the head) to a thinning/bald area that concerns the patient i.e. hairline, crown, etc.
A hair transplant is a minor non-invasive surgical procedure that involves the safe removal of hair follicles from an area of abundant hair on the scalp (typically the back and side) and transfers them to a location on the scalp of sparse/nil hair coverage.
The main difference between the two methods is the harvesting technique. FUE involves removing individual hair follicles, while FUT extracts the follicles within a strip of skin which is removed from the back of the head. Both methods achieve the same outcomes, but a FUT hair transplant will result in a thin linear scar on the back of your head, whereas FUE surgery results in various pin-hole-like scars.
