Treatments for Alopecia at Transform Medical

Pro-Active Hair Filler

Pro-Active Hair Filler contains an innovative complex of sustained release peptides that is injected directly into the dermis of the scalp.  These ingredients have shown, in multiple scientific and clinical studies, to promote blood circulation to the scalp and hair follicles, revitalise hair follicles, assist with hair stem cell proliferation, induce hair growth by increasing the size of hair follicles, prevent hair loss and maintain hair growth.

The area of concern will be assessed by Dr Aniali and a treatment programme will be discussed, as this will depend on the severity and size of the area of hair loss and cause of hair loss. The treatment will be performed once every 2 weeks and an initial course of 4 sessions is advised. Dr Aniali will evaluate the area every 4-6 months to determine whether a maintenance session is required.
