There are so many alternatives all promising the best results, all of which require some commitment of time and/or money.
For example, in-clinic Laser Hair treatments can cost from £50 a session and must be done regularly to upkeep any effects, with effects showing through from 4 months onwards.
In-clinic scalp health spa-like treatments can cost a lot per session too, and whilst having a clean and healthy scalp must be beneficial, there are limited (none that we can locate) clinical trials to show they have any effect on Hair regrowth.
There are taken home options, such as purchasing a Laser cap to treat yourself at home, costing around £400-1000 on average. Daily tratments such as applying Minoxidil foam, and/or topical fibres, can cost monthly and must be done every day, for the rest of your life. All of these and the many others are a serious long term commitment, involving much trial and error to find out which is most effective, if at all.
Hair Transplant Surgery is an extremely reliable and effective way to treat Hair loss in most cases, but will cost thousands of pounds. For some a reasonable investment to have hair for the rest of your life, particularly when you can spend so much on alternatives which do not work or last very long.
That said, any of these can suit some people and at Medical Ink we believe in finding a solution which suits you, especially at the beginning of a hair loss journey
However, for a permanent, lasting and visible effect, SMP can be the most effective, and affordable long-term solution. It requires minimal to no upkeep, is often a one-time investment, and means you can get on with life.
