We use various hair transplant techniques to treat pattern baldness – FIT (Follicular Isolation Technique), FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), and FUE (Follicular Unit Excision).
Hair growth can be restored when a donor hair, from another part of the head, is implanted into the follicle.
Pattern baldness is more prevalent in men, but can also affect some women. This type of hair loss usually occurs from the top of the head, leaving hair around the back and sides. Although baldness is a very common condition, often caused by the release of the DHT hormone, it is not always welcomed.
FIT is performed on a strand by strand basis. Hairs are extracted as a whole unit, complete with gland, and transplanted into the affected area. A professional therapist will use a microscope to perform this intricate procedure, ensuring the extracted hairs are not damaged. FUT works by taking a strip of tissue from the donor area, which is usually the back of the head. This strip is then prepared and separated into grafts (smaller pieces of tissue), which are then implanted into the bald area of the head. Although FUE also extracts hair from a donor area, it differs from FUT whereby it uses multiple extraction techniques which effectively thins the hair.
FUE is a more advanced method that produces less scarring in the long term.
By taking hair tissue from an area of the head where hair growth is in a larger volume it is more likely that they are unaffected by the DHT hormone. This should indicate that the hair is more likely to survive and will not take on the same pattern of loss.
By attending a thorough medical consultation with one of the team at Paradise Aesthetic Clinic, a personal treatment plan can be outlined. The extent of your hair loss, along with your hair type, will be taken into account. This will determine your suitability and the type of technique that will offer the best outcome. The results are designed to create a natural-looking restoration of the hairline.
Other treatments that can be used to address issues with hair loss include mesotherapy, RF hair follicle stimulation, and PRP.

FUT or FIT hair transplant is suitable for those who are affected by pattern baldness. It is a common misperception that this treatment is only for use by men. This is not true, as women can also be affected by hair loss. However, it is more popular with men than women. Your healthcare professional will determine your suitability through a comprehensive assessment, looking at your hair loss concerns and the type of hair you have.
This procedure will require the application of an appropriate anaesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any pain. As a minimally invasive treatment, very fine needles are used along with precise and intricate techniques. This will help to minimise the amount of discomfort for the client. The basic and local anaesthetic can be topped up if necessary.
Following the procedure the scalp may feel tight and there may be a slight aching at the back of the head. The treatment area can also become swollen and bruised. These effects usually settle within a few days, but some clients feel the sensitivity for around 1 week.
It may take around 3 months before there is noticeable hair regrowth. This will continue to develop with increased density around 6 months and the final outcome visible at around 12 months. It is natural and to be expected that the hair will also shed itself, the same as the rest of the hair, and not anything to be alarmed about.
The experts from Paradise Aesthetic Clinic may advise against this procedure if you have a history of alopecia areata, are affected by psoriasis, have diabetes, certain other medical conditions, and have allergies to local anesthetics. Please book a consultation.
Our excellent service and high standards as described by you, our valued clients.
