Alopecia (or hair loss), can occur for any number of reasons, but androgenic alopecia is the most common for both sexes. For men, this is when the hairline begins to recede at the forehead and the side temporal regions. It can also include the crown and increases as time goes on. Women too can suffer loss at the front of the hairline and a thinning of hair all over the scalp.
There are other reasons for alopecia. This includes illnesses such as anaemia (low iron levels), protein deficiency and thyroid problems. Chemotherapy is also a recognised cause of hair loss. Some medications can also cause hair loss. Alopecia areata, where patches of hair loss form, is caused by the individual’s autoimmune system attacking hair follicles. Excessive stress (whether emotional or physical) can result in a form of alopecia called telogen effluvium. This is where stress stops the hair from growing and it then falls out several months later.
With androgenic alopecia it’s possible, with surgery, to restore the frontal hairline, as well as thickness in the crown. This is achieved via hair transplanting using follicles from the back of the head between the ears. The technique, known as FUE (follicular unit extraction), is performed under local anaesthetic and involves individually transplanting hair grafts. Discomfort is kept to a minimum and the patient takes oral pain medication for up to a week afterwards.

I'm very impressed with this clinic. My experience from booking in with the reception team to being seen by one of their doctors has been phenomenal. I will definitely be recommending your services. Thank you Dr Roked for the level of care and how you've helped me so far. - Fred
Fantastic clinic. Everything you need in one place, I started seeing Dr Roked for HRT. She has changed my life. They have a pharmacy too which is convenient for me. I never write reviews but this clinic has changed my life! - Vanessa
If you are thinking of going on Hormone Replacement Therapy I would highly recommend Dr Sohere Roked. She is the best doctor I have ever met. She listens and understands her patients (I know because my 2 sisters also see her) Her approach is different to other doctors as she is a trained psychologist - She understands the balance between hormone therapy and mental health. She has honestly saved my life! - Meridith
I just wanted to say thank you to Omniya Clinic and Dr Roked for helping me. I had misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy in the past, but now that I'm on TRT I feel back to my best! Long may it continue. Thank you to everyone at Omniya Clinic. MB - Matt

I've had a few procedures done with them and I've been thinking of doing a hair transplant for years, now that they're offering it I will definitely go ahead with it. They only work with the best doctors. Thank you Omniya. - Adam

Alopecia for both male and female (pattern hair loss) are both hereditary and caused by inherited genes. For men, genes can come from one or both parents, and in women, due to their higher levels of oestrogen, if only one parent carries the gene they are unlikely to be affected.
However, other forms of thinning hair such as stress related hair loss are not hereditary.
Alopecia can happen at any age! 30% in their thirties are bald.
Some men experience alopecia at 16, and are almost entirely bald by the time they reach their early twenties.
However, typically, male pattern baldness tends to develop slowly though so whilst it may start in the early 30’s, and it may even take 20+ years to lose all hair.
Sadly, yes, and this can affect both men and women.
Any female can be impacted by hair loss. However, it is usually more common in:
- Women over 40
- Post partum women
- Women on medication or who may have undergone chemotherapy
- Women who pull on the hair (for example, tight ponytails or tight braids) or use harsh chemicals on their hair.
It can take from one year up to 18 months for the hair to grow fully and the best results achieved.
Your doctor may advise or prescribe ‘maintenance’ medication.
Successful hair transplants provide a permanent head of hair which will continue to grow, making them appear very natural.
Female hormones decrease at this time meaning the ratio between male and female hormones in the body alters (hair loss is triggered by the male hormones).
