It’s no secret that any man with a receding hairline is on a steady and reliable path to baldness. Male pattern baldness is very common and starts at the temples and crown of the head. Over time these two areas will eventually meet and connect. The Hamilton Norwood scale shows the different stages of baldness and it is this scale that I have used to provide you with a guide to pricing – scroll down for pricing.
Hair loss can start in early puberty, with a steady loss of more hair over the years. Some men don’t lose their hair until they’re in their 50s. The earlier you start to lose your hair the more likely you are to lose more hair than someone who loses their hair at an older age. Hair loss, plain and simple, is down to hormones and genetic predisposition. Any hair that is lost and not reproduced after two years will generally not return as the hair follicles get smaller and after this time you’ll be unable to grow any new hair. If you find you have had no hair growth after two years, you have a number of options available to you. If you have some hair you can opt for a hair transplant and enhance that transplant with scalp pigmentation. If on the other hand you have little hair, and keep your hair short, a whole head scalp pigmentation will give you the illusion of a full head of hair. Whether you’ve had a hair transplant or not scalp pigmentation can provide the illusion of more hair. The small dots of pigment implanted into the scalp give the appearance of hair that has been freshly shaven.
Male pattern baldness is not an illness, but can cause stress, anxiety, a loss of self-esteem and confidence and can affect many areas of your life.
Most men who suffer from male pattern baldness are extremely unhappy and would do anything to change this.

BEFORE – This client has had two previous sessions, implanting pigments from the back of the head towards the front. Treatment Description – Third session bringing the pigmentation to the front hairline. Price – You will need to come for a consultation so a treatment and pricing plan can be discussed. Session Duration – 2 1/2 hours, including consultation and numbing time.
AFTER – These photos show the result of the third session immediately after treatment. The area at the front hairline looks red, but this will settle quite quickly. The client will come back for a fourth session to ensure the third session implantation has taken nicely and to add any additional pigmentation to given the client the desired look. Future Treatments – The client has been advised that future treatments, probably one session, will be required every 12-18 months to ensure the pigmentation is kept fresh. If left untreated the pigment will fade after time.
Explanation of Procedure – The client is completely bald, and following a consultation pre-booked 4 sessions to create the desired look. The sessions last from 2-2.5 hours and the needle is dotted into the scalp, following a random pattern, just as hair follicles are random. The depth of the needle isn’t very deep, but topical anaesthetic was used for the comfort of the client. Client chatted happily throughout procedure.
