Balding can happen to men at any stage in life whether through aging or a medical condition but, while some choose to embrace it, it’s no longer something men have to live with, should they choose not to. At The Gentlemen’s Clinic, treatments include the state-of-the-art hair transplantation technique: FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
What is Follicular Unit Extraction?
FUE is an effective and reliable procedure, which brings the patient life-long and completely natural looking results. Through microsurgery, the procedure involves the extraction and transplantation of thousands of hair follicles. While the older FUT method left a long thin scar at the back of the head, the FUE method only leaves tiny white dots where graft extraction has taken place.
Permanent Hair Removal with Laser
Many men with excessive body hair believe it to be unattractive, and find trying to manage it
a time-consuming chore. What’s more, many are self-conscious about it. Whether the hair is
on the chest, stomach, back or armpits, the Super Hair Removal (SHR) treatment offers a
How It Works
SHR works by using a combination of laser technology and pulses of light at a high frequency. Both light hair and dark hair can be removed, and the integrated cooler provides greater skin protection and increased comfort during the procedure. The treatment may need
to be repeated 6-8 times over a period of months to ensure the results are permanent.
Wrinkle Treatment & Prevention
Men and women will develop wrinkles, lines, and creases in their skin as they age, but it’s now easier than ever to prevent this process, appearing more youthful and energised for longer. However, men’s skin is around 20% thicker, has better circulation, produces higher levels of oil, and contains more melanin. The Gentlemen’s Clinic has developed a treatment for men’s skin by injecting face with the neurotoxic protein (Botox) to reduce frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. The full effects of the treatment take around 4 weeks to develop and will last for 4-6 months.
Gynecomastia (male breast reduction)
Gynecomastia is the enlargement of breast tissue in men and can occur in both slim, lean, heavy set and larger men alike. While obesity can be a contributing factor, rather than being caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, it is more often linked to a hormonal imbalance. The
procedure to reduce male breasts is performed under local anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure as the patient can go home once it is complete. It is a painless procedure with no visible scarring, and the patient can return usually return to work the next day.
