Hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons, such as male pattern baldness, or as a result of stress or illness. The team at Tir na nOg Clinic have seen an unprecedented amount of stress related hair loss and scalp irritation. While some men adjust better to hair loss than others, the reality is that many people struggle with the transition, and as hair restoration technology has advanced, so too has the number of Irish men having procedures to create a look they are more comfortable with.
The family-run clinic is owned by husband and wife team Dr Kevin and Natasha McDonald. Dr McDonald is a highly skilled surgeon, and prior to hair transplant surgery he worked in cardiothoracic surgery for more than 10 years, in some of the top public and private hospitals in Ireland and the UK.
“We’re a close knit team here in our clinic, and we like to be as open as we can,” Dr McDonald commented. “We also know that going into any clinic can sometimes be a daunting experience and we do all we can to help put everyone at ease.”
Based in a state-of-the-art medical centre in north Dublin, Tir na nOg Clinic uses the latest in equipment, knowledge, and technology. “The treatments that we recommend for our patients are purely on a medical basis, while still being able to deliver them at an affordable price. We offer packages tailored to our clients’ needs, and work closely with them as a team to provide holistic, long-term, solutions to your hair loss,” Dr McDonald continued.
The clinic's treatment plan includes the initial and pre-operative consultations with Dr McDonald, the procedure itself, a two week post operative review which includes PRP (platelet-rich plasma ), and three, six, and 12 month post operative reviews. “These packages involve both medical and surgical treatments and cost between €2,000 to €4,000 inclusive. We offer PRP, a therapy that uses injections of a concentration of the patient’s own platelets to accelerate healing, a couple of weeks after every transplant.” Medication is also offered to stop further hair loss, and it can help to regrow hair that has gone into a dormant stage but has not yet died.
“What’s most important to the team at Tir na nOg Clinic is that our patients get the best possible treatment for their hair loss. We regularly see them come back with hair, and more importantly confidence within themselves,” Dr McDonald concluded.
