  • Do not use hair dyes or color which contains harmful chemicals, it may damage your hair
  • Avoid excessive heat and wind such as from hair dryers, curling irons and hot showers
  • Use a conditioner after shampooing, it will moisturize your hair, give extra protection and add shine to your hair
  • Avoid excessive stress and smoking

  • Don't pick or squeeze your spots. This can leave scars and spread spots.
  • Don't clog your pores with heavy make-up
  • Change your diet. Going out for food is a great way to socialise but eating fatty foods all the time can have an impact on your skin.
  • Stay out of the sun. Acne medication can make people more likely to burn.
  • Exercise daily. It regulates hormone levels, delivers oxygen to skin cells and carries cellular waste away.

No melasma treatment offers permanent results, so we recommend maintenance therapy that can prevent melasma from coming back. Certain common-sense tactics can also help avoid melasma from developing in the first place. These include:

  • Daily sunscreen use. Since sunlight is one of the biggest triggers for melasma, daily sunscreen use is non-negotiable to keep it at bay. Choose a sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Outdoor hats. Broad-brimmed hats help keep rays off vulnerable parts of the face. Seek shade whenever outdoors, as well.
  • Gentle skin care. Since products that irritate the skin exacerbate melasma, use gentle products that don't sting or burn.
  • Melasma may not be completely preventable, even with the best skin care and precautions, but in the vast majority of cases, efforts to prevent it or treat it are successful at keeping those annoying spots away.

FAQs on Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction. It is the individual removal of hair follicles in their naturally occurring groupings of 1-4 hairs. A special tool is used to create about a 1mm incision and the hairs are removed with forceps.
Once you’ve had your hair transplant it is normal for your hair to shed. You might notice some hair loss from the transplanted areas a few weeks after your treatment. This is a normal part of the hair transplant process and is nothing to worry about. After your hair has had an initial shedding it will grow back strong and healthy and remain in place.
When it comes to age, you are more likely to be too young for a hair transplant than too old. We get a lot of enquiries from young men who believe they need a hair transplant and that it is best to have one when they are young. This isn’t always the case. Each individual is different but we believe it is best to wait until you’re a little older to get your hair transplant, when you are young hair loss and hair growth pattern can be irregular and the hair loss can worsen, meaning you could need more than one procedure. As long as you are in good health and are suitable for a hair transplant it is unlikely you would be too old.
Yes. When we transplant your donor hair into the recipient area we place each graft at an angle that mimics natural hair growth. As the hair we transplant is from your head once it starts to grow it will blend in naturally with the rest of your hair and will be almost unidentifiable.
Leaving the clinic with a full head of hair straight away would be an absolute dream. Sadly the revolutionary FUE hair transplant procedure still requires a little bit of time and you’ll need to be patient. Once the hair has been transplanted you will need to allow time for the follicles to grow, this will be just like waiting for your normal hair to grow. You will gradually notice a change in your hair growing and after 3-6 months you’ll see your new, full head of hair.
