The Psychological Effects of Hair Loss

Posted by DHI Australia on July 2, 2018

Until you start losing your hair, you probably don’t appreciate how much it contributes to your sense of self. In today’s ‘selfie society’ we are constantly reminded of our appearance and are bombarded by pictures of young, fit and good looking people. If what you see in the mirror everyday reminds you that you aren’t as young as you used to be, it can be pretty devastating.

The majority of men who experience hair loss suffer from negative psychological effects, such as loss of confidence and self esteem. Many report becoming socially withdrawn because they are embarrassed about their appearance. The good news is that those who sought treatment reported feeling more positive and had increased self-esteem after treatment.

The Hair Transplant Procedure With No Time Off Work

Posted by DHI Australia on June 19, 2018

A traditional hair transplant procedure such as FUT or "strip surgery" does require time off work. This technique involves a large incision at the back of the head to remove a section of hair follicles, which is then stitched back together. Recovery and time off work (typically at least a couple of weeks) is needed to recover and let the scar heal. Thankfully, today there are more innovative, less invasive options. Today's most advanced hair transplant technique is so delicate, you may not need to take any time off work.

We explain the most delicate and advanced technique below and why it could save you a long recovery period.

Potential New Drug In The Fight Against Hair Loss & Baldness

Posted by DHI Australia on June 5, 2018

Osteoporosis medication, originally designed for the bone-thinning disease is now being considered as a possible breakthrough treatment for baldness. A recent study shows potential for the drug to help stimulate the growth of human hair follicles.

Today, in terms of medications, patients are limited to the choice of only two FDA approved options - Minoxidil and Finasteride for the treatment of hair loss or androgenetic alopecia. Given the potential for severe psychological distress caused by baldness, more, but most importantly safe, hair loss solutions are needed.

How Hormones Impact Hair Loss & Balding In Men & Women

Posted by DHI Australia on May 15, 2018

Although more prominent in men, hair loss does affect both men and women and our hormones play a key role. Hair follicles are programmed to perform on average between 25 and 30 cycles, throughout life. When a person suffers from baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, the cycles of the hair growth and loss accelerate. Initially, it is due to the hormones that attack the follicles as a poison and accelerate the pace of the growth phase. The hair is forced to go into rest phase (telogen) faster, not leaving the hair follicle enough time to make good quality hair.

It is then a vicious circle, the cycles are shorter and shorter, the hair of lesser and lesser quality. In the long run, the cycles are exhausted, and the hair does not grow again. We discuss how hormones impact hair loss for men and women and the various solutions available for consideration.

Posted by DHI Australia on April 30, 2018

Cosmetic medicine is advancing at an incredibly fast rate, and along with it, so too are hair transplant techniques. Long gone are the days of "the rug" hair pieces or "the flap" hair transplant surgery.

Visible scarring is no longer part and parcel of hair transplant surgery, thanks to innovative developments in the type of tools and techniques used, and the skill of the doctor performing the procedure. There should be no reason to consider FUE or strip surgery today. Learn about what causes scars and the hair transplant technique with no visible scarring.

Ashley & Martin vs DHI – What’s The Difference?

Posted by DHI Australia on April 26, 2018

Over the years, Ashley & Martin have successfully built a brand associated with hair loss treatment. According to the CEO of Ashley & Martin, “2010 data shows that 70% of hair loss industry marketing is Ashley and Martin’s.” This shows that they spend a huge budget on marketing and brand awareness, but what about the quality of solutions and results?

With today’s increasingly significant emphasis on health and natural solutions, taking hair loss medications or a daily hair loss prevention routine may not be suitable for everyone. We explain the similarities and differences between Ashley & Martin (A&M) and DHI hair loss prevention and solutions.

The Worst Thing About Hair Loss Drugs

Posted by DHI Australia on April 19, 2018

The signs of ageing include wrinkles, the slowing down of cell renewal, grey hair and of course, hair loss. Loss of hair occurs when hair follicles stop hair growth, also known as alopecia. Through the normal hair growth cycle, we typically lose 50-100 hairs a day, however loss can be more excessive than this and many people turn to medication as a solution. Just like any other medication, there are side effects that need to be considered and weighed-up against other forms of treatment. 

We discuss the main types of hair loss, the symptoms that you should consult a hair restoration specialist about, and the drawbacks of hair loss drugs.

The Effect of Procrastination on Hair Loss Treatment

Posted by DHI Australia on March 9, 2018

If you are guilty of “sticking your head in the sand” when it comes to hair loss, you’re not alone. Many people hope for the best, wishing for the loss to be temporary. The Aussie way of, “She’ll be right mate” can come back to haunt you if one day you look at your balding reflection in the mirror and worry if you’ve left it too late. 

Putting off hair loss treatment means that when the day comes to face reality (that you may be going bald) and take action, you will have less hair to work with. For those who take action early, never going bald is an achievable goal. We discuss the impact of procrastination when it comes to treating hair loss and explain the options for hair loss prevention and treatment.
