Bosley Hair Loss Consultation: What to Expect
If you’re at the point where you want to do something about your hair loss, you’ve probably already started researching your hair restoration options. And while there’s a wealth of information available online to help you learn more about the procedure and your possible results, it’s impossible to get a truly personalized solution without meeting with a hair restoration expert in person.
At Bosley, our free, private, no-obligation hair loss consultations are designed to help you learn more about your hair loss, answer any questions you might have, and start developing a customized plan to help you achieve your hair restoration goals. If you’re ready to take that next step, here’s what you can expect.
Your Personal Goals
The first thing you’ll discuss with your counselor is your personal hair restoration goals. While there are some recognizable patterns to hair loss, the way each person feels and thinks about their hair loss can be completely different. This is your opportunity to talk openly about your unique hair loss journey and what you’re hoping to achieve.
Free Personal Hair and Scalp Analysis
During your consultation, you’ll also receive a complimentary microscopic scalp and hair analysis from a trained Bosley physician. The analysis can provide valuable information such as:
- The true extent of your hair loss
- How your follicles have miniaturized over time
- Availability of your healthy donor hair
- Your potential for future hair loss
This information, along with an understanding of your personal goals, will help your Bosley counselor determine your surgical and non-surgical restoration options.
Hair Transplantation Options
If you’re a candidate for surgical hair restoration, your counselor or physician will discuss the two primary procedures we offer: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). They’ll talk to you about the differences between each procedure and answer any questions you may have about the benefits of each approach. Using the results of your scalp and hair analysis, they’ll also be able to provide an estimate of how many grafts you’ll need to meet your goals.
Discussing Your Other Options
In addition to discovering permanent hair restoration options, your counselor will give you information on our non-surgical hair loss treatments that could be part of your hair restoration plan. This could include our Bosley Professional Strength treatment for men and women (including a 5% Minoxidil solution), TriGen+® with Power Matrix PRP™, and low-level laser therapy devices like the Capillus® laser cap. Also, Bosley offers the Bosley SMP®, which is a non-surgical treatment called scalp micropigmentation that’s suitable for all types of hair loss. By applying a proprietary pigment (ink) to the scalp with a special micro-fine needle, technicians are able to create thousands of tiny impressions that give the appearance of fuller hair — all without the need for surgery.
Another topic that’s usually covered during your consultation is the potential cost of a permanent hair restoration. While a Bosley counselor can provide a typical range, only a Bosley physician can give you a definitive answer, given your specific goals and the amount of grafts you’ll need. Learn more about how the cost of a hair transplantation is determined. Also, by coming in for a free consultation, you might learn that you do not need hair transplantation and could benefit from one of Bosley’s non-surgical solutions.
Your Personal Hair Restoration Plan
Using everything they’ve learned about your hair and personal goals, your physician will work with you to develop a personal hair restoration plan. Whether that involves a hair restoration procedure, a non-surgical treatment solution, or a combination of the two, we’ll continue providing our expertise, guidance, and support long after you leave our office.
