Losing your hair? Losing your confidence?

Non-surgical hair replacement allows you to have hair that looks and feels as natural as possible.
Baldness in men is an extremely common issue, effecting over 80% in their lifetimes. It’s just so common that it’s something that people should just accept and deal with, right? Wrong! Male pattern baldness is the most common cosmetic issue that modern men say affect their overall body image and confidence.
Thinning or losing hair can feel like an embarrassing confidence drainer and act as constant worry for those that suffer from it. Hair is an important part of someone’s overall image, and we should not overlook the confidence sapping effect that losing it can have. Poor body image can lead to low self-esteem and even depression. Hair loss can have a massive effect on the confidence of even the most confident man and the long-term effects of hair loss on mental health cannot be ignored.
Losing your hair makes you look older; and no doubt feel older, it is a fact! If you are ok with that, that is fine! If it worries you, can do anything to stop this downward spiral?
Options for balding men
Men have looked for solutions to their balding issues for thousands of years, from rubbing oils on their heads to drinking potions, special foods, wearing wigs or praying for divine intervention, despite this going bald has always been an unstoppable curse.
It has only been in the last forty years that medicine has given us viable solutions to prevent this age-old painful problem. The only medical cures proven to work have come in the form of Medicines such as Finasteride and Dutasteride both of which block the body’s production of DHT and Minoxidil which is a topical solution that increases blood flow to the scalp.
These certified medicines can have fantastic results, but they are not a perfect fit for everyone and can also lead to unwanted issues, such as erectile disfunction, anxiety, heart palpitations or skin irritations. It can also prove to be an expensive undertaking, with monthly payments for the medicines that must be continued over a lifetime.
The other medical option that has gained popularity is hair transplantation. The hair transplant industry is growing rapidly, and they are becoming increasingly common. A transplant is a surgical option that involves taking hair from parts of the head unaffected by male pattern baldness and placed into the bald top and back of the head.
Transplants are in truth, painful and expensive, and there are no guarantees that they will be a total success. It can take nearly a year to recover from hair transplants and this stress, pain and expenditure are not for everyone.
What is male pattern Baldness?
Men can suffer from a variety of baldness issues ranging from Alopecia, Hypertrichosis and Trichotillomania! However, the most widespread cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) which is the hereditary condition that causes baldness in around 95% of men.
Male pattern baldness commonly begins in men in their 30s and 40s and slowly progresses throughout time. However androgenic alopecia can even begin in a man’s teens or early twenties It is a progressive condition so throughout a man’s life the condition will continue to worsen. Male pattern baldness causes hair to thin on the front and back and over time (at its worst) can case total baldness.
Androgenic Alopecia is caused by a chemical called DHT which is an offshoot of Testosterone, it attacks sand slowly miniaturises hair follicles leading to continued hair loss.

The stigma that was once attached to balding has largely disappeared and we are delighted at Virtue Skin and Hair Clinics to be able to guide you along your journey.
How does the Non-Surgical Hair Replacement work?
There has amazing been leaps in the hair system field over the last few decades, hair systems are now custom made with a breathable hair membrane. This is carefully and gently stuck to the scalp with a bonding agent that holds the hair replacement in place, making it unmoveable and secure.
The hair colour is matched with precision to your own shade and hair type, making the hair system virtually impossible to detect.
Finding the correct coloured hair is an integral part of creating a perfect result, so that the hair system will be unnoticeable. You can even dye your hair if needs be, but you may well need to ensure the colour is refreshed every month or so. The hair replacement system can last for up to four months; however, this can vary from person to person. On average a person can expect to have a six or seven-week life for their hair replacement system.
The amount of exercise, medication or profession can all affect the amount of time that the hair replacement system can remain secured in place. Once the hair system is fully bonded and cut correctly into place you will be able to style and move the hair around naturally in any way you please, leaving you with a normal and natural look.
You may well notice a small lip at the edge of your fringe where the hair replacement system is found but this will be unnoticeable unless extremely thoroughly inspected and it will soon just become part of your new hair that you will adjust to. Apart from this the replacement hair system will appear and feel totally natural and give your hair new lease of life.
Will my hair look natural?
The hair system is painstakingly hand crafted by experts, with hair strands grafted in directions that make it appear natural and flowing. The system takes on a fully natural look (with the membrane mimicking the look of a natural scalp), leaving you able to run your hands through your hair without issue.
