Question:

Hi, I'm a 28 year old male and sufferer from scar tissue/alopecia and my hair is now thinning at pace. I have been advised that a hair transplant will not correct this. Are there any other options for example synthetic hair injections?

Answer: Synthetic hair injections have been banned in Europe for more than a decade due to high rejection rate. Non-surgical hair replacement is the best and sometimes only option for scar tissue.

When you refer to alopecia - are you referring to scarring (cicatricial) alopecia or another form such as androgenetic (genetic) alopecia, or alopecia areata? I am unclear because you say your hair is now thinning at pace - usually baldness from a scar is not progressive.

If it is a form of alopecia other than cicatricial, then it is likely we can help with preventative treatments. Belgravia's treatment courses can regrow patchy hair loss (alopecia areata) in many cases and will almost always prevent and reverse male or male pattern hair loss.
 
For your scars, we hear that Dr Farjo at the Regency Crown can transplant on a scar tissue but he must check it first to see if there is still blood supply.
