based hair loss treatments
There are various hair loss
treatments available on prescription, and there are two that Senator may
discuss with you if you are in the early stages of hair loss;
Minoxidil (brand name
Regaine) is a colourless and odourless lotion that is applied to the scalp
Finasteride (brand name Propecia) is in coated tablet form and is taken once a
Both of these treatments are designed to slow down hair loss which
can lead to the appearance of increased hair density. They don’t actually cure hair
lossbut can regrow hair in approximately 70% of men*. Both
treatments need to be used continuously for their effects to be maintained.
Finasteride seems to be the medical hair loss treatment that
achieves the best results. However, the clinical trials have not been as extensive as minoxidil and there are
some potential side effects, so many men prefer to try minoxodil.
In 3% of men finasteride, or Propecia, can cause loss of libido,
difficulty in achieving an erection, and a decrease in volume of semen. For this reason, finasteride would not
usually be recommended for a man planning to have children. The good
news is that side effects are not permanent if you stop taking the treatment.

using Minoxidil-Regaine conducted in 27 centres across the U.S. involving more then 2,300 patients with
male pattern baldness].
If a medication based hair loss treatment is thought to be a
possible option, Senator has a doctor available for consultations to ensure that the medication is
suitable for you as an individual. Senator will not provide a
medication based hair loss treatment without a prescription from a qualified Doctor licensed in the UK
and made up by a UK pharmacy.
Transplant based hair loss treatments
Even when men lose a great deal
of hair, they will always have some still growing around the back and
sides of the head. Transplant based hair loss treatments use this permanent hair to reduce male pattern
A thin strip of the skin
containing this hair is removed from the back of the head, and the hair follicles are carefully taken out and
placed into tiny surgical incisions in the part of the scalp where the hair is
Once the transplant has taken
place, the implanted hair will take between fourteen and sixteen weeks to begin to grow, and it may take around
six months for the transplanted hair to make a significant change to your appearance. You may need two or more
transplant sessions, each six months apart, to achieve the required hair density.
Senator would not recommend transplant based hair loss treatments to
clients under the age of 28 as your hair may still be developing, or
in cases where extensive hair loss has taken place.
hair loss treatments
Senator offers high quality, bespoke, hand made hair
pieces for customers that would benefit most from cosmetic hair loss treatments. There are many varieties of hair pieces available, and at your initial consultation the
following options will be discussed with you:

How long would you like the hair to be? Do
you want curls or straight hair? Would you prefer a parting or a freestyle look?
styling of your hairpiece is essential to give you confidence and pride in your appearance, and at
Senator we take styling very seriously.
A fully qualified hairdresser would require around two years of
additional training at the Senator Hair
Clinic before they would be allowed to
style one of our hairpieces without supervision.
material of the hairpiece
There are two options available; human hair
or man made fibres. Advances in hair replacement technology have meant that the appearance of man made hair
is almost indistinguishable from human hair. Man made fibres are also lighter, less likely to fade, and
softer to the touch than human hair. They are styled using heat and steam, whereas human hair must be styled
The type of base
Senator use eight tried and tested bases
for their bespoke hair pieces. The most appropriate base for you will often depend on your lifestyle, and your
preferred method of attaching the base to the head.

will be taken. We examine hair in six different areas on your head because the colour, texture and thickness of
your hair will vary across your scalp. A mould will be made of the top of your head to ensure we get the shape
of the hair piece exactly right.
