Hair loss treatment and hair transplant horror stories

Patients all around the world are finding that there are horrific stories being uncovered of the monumental hair loss treatment disaster stories. When seeking out a hair loss treatment you need to be sure that the treatment isn’t causing large amounts of damage to the tissue around the hair follicles. 

Our hair loss clinic has seen many reviews of complications such as skin scarring and infections in the scalp.

Here are the following complications that hair loss clinics in Melbourne have seen from treatments people had overseas. There is a growing sign of complications that people are incorporating by going overseas and not having adequate aftercare.


This is a prime example of too many hair follicles being implanted in a small area. The skin looks damaged or necrosed as they say because the implantation of the hair follicle is possibly too deep. The lack of blood supply will not only give a scar to the patient but also destroy the follicle. It is important to see why people are not able to get successful hair transplants. At our clinics, our hair loss doctors are able to provide a comprehensive check on each hair follicle that has been implanted by a technician. Many of our staff are able to get the perfect look in the hair. You cannot see what has gone wrong without having a complete hair loss plan for the patient. It’s important to note that people are not going to come to hair loss clinic by wanting to invest in a small clinical environment. You need to have all the medical equipment available filled with a comprehensive check of your health.

The next case is a prime example of bad directions given to the patient when you don’t give proper directions for cleaning the wound site.

Lack of cleaning practices posts a hair transplant has shown the death of follicle tissue and also the development of very strong crusting. This case is a prime example of bad hair loss transplant management. Many people are seeing that hair loss treatment cannot be completed without good antibiotic cover and regular reviews with your hair transplant surgeon. As you can see the yellow crusting over the scalp there is a big correlation of poor aftercare programs. Not only will this patient lose the hair transplant but also there will be scarring that will ensue with this patient. Getting the right type of implant technique performed on you is paramount. It is important to avoid complex techniques that don’t yield high follicle count. It is important to shape the hairline with a nice way to form a safe and effective receding hairline. 

This is a disastrous approach to implantation where the donor follicle markings are too large. The FUE technique has damaged the hair implant donor follicle site. The holes created will leave permanent scars. Hair transplantation should be done in steps and not in one fell swoop and the way the punch biopsy has been taken it will have left this patient permanently scarred. The reality is that there will never have to be a hair transplant site that is going to damage one’s hair and if you don’t see that there is way to go about it then you are going to have huge problems with getting a successful transplant.


Fake or poor quality PRP is also part of the horror stories of how hair loss treatment is occurring in pseudo clinics. Many people are reporting oil leaking out of their scalp after having treatment. That’s right! Oil! At skin club cosmetic doctors we have had patients complaining that they have had oil-injected instead of PRP. Reality is injecting oil into the scalp tissue is not going to help anything but more so cause major complications and death of skin tissue. This will result in worsening of hair loss.

Lastly, patients will lose their money when seeking out PRP hair loss treatment in dodgy clinics. We have found people using poor quality PRP to inject for hair loss treatments. This has resulted in patients losing faith in the treatment program and not completing the whole treatment program. What we have to find is that hair loss treatment is about getting a comprehensive look as to why hair is not growing. People need to have hair tested, have blood reports done and a comprehensive approach to monitoring male/stress hormones. Once this has been performed then you can have successful hair rejuvenation or hair regrowth clinic title assigned to your business. There is no point claiming such great success without performing the hard yards.

If you are truly looking to grow long-lasting results that actually last then please have your hair treated by professional doctors who have been accredited by Australian and international faculties. There is no point having a treatment that doesn’t work. It’s all about getting the right outcomes for the patient and the most out of each treatment.
