For almost two years, this client has faithfully attended Laser Hair Therapy visits and taken every recommendation we’ve made to him. The outcome…more hair! When this client first came in for his consultation, he was wearing his hair very short, almost completely buzzed because it was thin and there was nothing else he could do with it plus the thinning was more noticeable when it was long.
He started out doing a one year Laser program in the salon, then after his first year, he purchased an iGrow unit and began using it at home in conjunction with the dhtSensor products. At about 18 months of total use, he also started taking Finastiride prescribed to him by our Surgical Hair Restoration Expert, Dr. Agnesi. The photos on the bottom right represent his progress between 18 and 21 months of use.
Restoring your own natural hair is possible, you just have to be patient and remain consistent with your treatments. What’s next for this client? He’s going to continue using the iGrow laser and the dhtSensor products indefinitely. He also plans to continue taking Finastiride. If he can’t restore a full head of hair using these methods, he has considered doing a small hair transplant to complete his transformation. Because of the progress he’s achieved with the laser, if he does decide to do a hair transplant, the procedure will be much smaller and much less expensive. Patience paid off for this client!
I hear this question all the time from my potential clients and when they hear my answer, they are often disappointed. Like any other change you make in your life whether it be weight loss, quitting a bad habit or resolving to improve something about yourself, there is no one time solution, it’s on going process that requires regular attention in order to achieve and maintain results.
The same holds true with hair loss solutions. There is no one-time, maintenance free cure for hair loss. Non-surgical hair replacement options, like a hair system, require a client to visit us for regular maintenance. Laser hair therapy, another non-surgical option, requires regular visits for a year and then maintenance visits afterward. Even using products and/or prescription drugs requires a daily time commitment from a client.
Surgical hair transplants are the closest thing to a maintenance free, one time solution that a client can get, however, even with surgery, a client may require maintenance down the road, and it can take up to 18 months before you see the full impact of a surgical hair transplant.
Bottom line, change takes time and commitment, so before you pursue a hair loss solution, ask yourself if you’re ready to commit to change.
I had a new female client that was considering a hair transplant and she wanted to speak to someone who had it done. I called another female client who had transplants about a year ago. I explained the situation and asked if she’d be willing to talk with my new client.
What I heard next made my day…she said “I would be more than happy to talk to anyone, coming to see you was the best thing I ever did, it changed my life.” She went on to tell me how getting a hair transplant has given her her confidence back and she’s enjoying life again.
This client’s testimonial was proof that pursuing a hair loss solution can be life changing and while it may be a big decision and a financial commitment, the freedom to be able to live your life again should make it all worth it!
