We encourage anyone considering any form of hair loss treatment, be it hair transplant surgery, scalp micropigmentation or another type of treatment to research the clinic they’re considering prior to any medical intervention or procedure. This is important because standards vary enormously from one clinic to the next.
Searching for reviews on the clinic or company in question is an obvious way to do this, but how can you be sure that the information you read is accurate and credible?
There are a number of factors that could (and often does) compromise the integrity of the information you read, as follows:
- Many reviews are fake, fabricated by clinics to make their clinic or a competitors clinic look more or less professional
- Some reviews are written at the wrong time. Any hair loss treatment takes time to show its true results, and many people document their progress at a time when their procedure looks its very best or worst.
- Clients often have unrealistic or changeable expectations. A Norwood 7 client is never going to achieve a fully dense head of hair through transplant surgery as there is not enough donor hair. Sometimes clients expect more than what is possible.
- Sometimes clients and clinics have disagreements. The dispute is usually financial and it happens with virtually every hair transplant clinic in the world including reputable clinics, and the not-so-reputable. Clients often retaliate by posting unfair negative reviews online.
Despite all this, you will actually struggle to find a negative review about Vinci Hair Clinic anywhere online. We’re sure they probably exist, but they are not easy to find. A large number of positive reviews can be found however. For examples see this review and this one and see our videos.
So what should you really be looking for?
First and foremost, you want to see a clinics results.
Photographs should be clear, unadulterated before and after images showing the clients progress. No attempt should be made to enhance, edit or otherwise improve images through camera tricks, unusual lighting or image editing software. Also beware of any clinic that deliberately uses degraded quality before photos to make the after photos look better.
Look for a clinic that is well established. Companies that have been trading for a number of years have survived the biggest acid test by maintaining a good enough reputation for their services to be in demand.
Find out who your surgeon or clinician will be, and check their credentials. Ask your clinic if they can provide examples of work completed by that person.
Find a clinic you’re comfortable with. Make sure your questions are answered comprehensively and in full, and resist any attempts to be rushed or pushed into signing up. Commit only when you’re happy to do so.
