Non-surgical Hair Loss Treatments in London

Non-Surgical Solutions

At Malkani Hair Restoration Institute our goal is to look after your hair loss and provide non-surgical treatments to prevent further hair loss. Our hair restoration clinic is in Harley Street, London.

We see it as a project rather than 1 or 2 treatment episodes.

We will only carry out surgery if we feel you will benefit and offer all patients a cooling off period. We also provide a number of complimentary non-surgical hair loss treatments which can be taken in addition to or instead of having surgery.

The role of DHT in male pattern hair loss

Because DHT makes hair follicles shrink and ultimately lost permanently, using a DHT blocker stops this from happening, which lets the hair follicles grow back to their normal size.

There are 2 DHT blockers at this time and moment. One is a prescription medication, and the other is a herbal DHT blocker given without a prescription but with much lower efficiency.

Hair loss tablets which act as DHT blockers (given on prescription and after a consultation)

DHT blockers are a tablet that you take every day. It’s thought to work by stopping DHT. DHT on the body gradually makes the hair follicles weaker until they permanently die resulting in male pattern hair loss.

Do DHT blockers or hair loss medication tablets work?

Yes they do work in restoring hair in the vast majority of cases.There have been studies that have indicated that using these hair loss tablets which act as DHT blockers increase the number of hairs as well as improving the appearance of your existing hair. Thinning hair regains strength and looks normal as well as making further hair loss stop. We notice that hair becomes stronger and thicker in diameter.

Hair loss medication tablets  take time to work, nor they can regrow permanently lost hair.

It can take from three to six months before you’ll see any effect from using it and it has to be taken every day or every other day depending upon your prescription.

You’ll need to use it long term too because if you stop using it, the balding process tends to start again within six months to a year. However Dr Malkani can advise you on the best treatment plan for this especially if you have been on this medication for a while. Your dose will need to be adjusted or lowered  in some cases so that you can maintain the benefits of this medication. Propecia is a prescription tablet with potential side effects like any other medication. All side effects are temporary and for a small number of patients. These stop upon discontinuing these tablets.These will all be discussed with you during your consultation so that you can make the right informed decision. Propecia seems to be more effective in restoring lost hair on the crown hair.

Please visit our hair restoration treatment prices page for more information.


Regaine is the name of a minoxidil-based lotion that you rub into your scalp every day. It helps stabilise further hair loss but is not as potent as the hair loss tablets which act as DHT blockers. In some cases, it seems to stop working after about 2 years of using it.

Minoxidil is an old anti-hypertensive medication and works by increasing blood flow to the scalp.

Herbal DHT blocker

It is a derivative of desert plants with no known side effects and works with a slower action/effect and is given without a prescription.

PRP therapy

This is offered at our clinic and is entirely natural and hormone free. To find out more including prices please visit our PRP page.

What Patients Are Saying

11 April 2019

As the partner of a very nervous patient, I want to tell you that if you choose the team you will not be sorry. Shane had wanted this procedure for a while, but was nervous, he hates going to the doctors and even worse hospitals or anything like it.  It took lots of encouragement to get him to take the plunge, I knew 5 years down the line he would regret not having this done. The night before we stayed in London round the corner from Harley street, Shane was really nervous the night before, but as soon as we met they made him feel really relaxed, he answered every question we had, completely honestly and within 5 minutes had earnt both of our respect and trust, something that remained throughout the day. Shane was really looked after, and they made me feel included. While I could not be in the room with Shane for the first part of the procedure, I was kept informed of progress and got to have lunch with him before the second part of the process.

If you are in doubt of to do this, and your doubt is related to the actual procedure, then let me tell you there is nothing at all to worry about with Malkani hair institute.

Going into this procedure I was nervous as you would expect, however after talking to the team for the first 20 minutes and going over the procedure and how it would work, I can honestly say I felt really relaxed and I am not someone who likes to visit any doctor and hospitals fill me with dread. This was a totally different experience, I felt completely comfortable with the surgeon and both the nurses that assisted him with my procedure. They assured me that they would look after me like family, and that ‘today I was their priority’, saying this is easy, but honestly that is how I felt from start to finish. The whole procedure was weirdly one of the most relaxing days I have spent I even fell asleep during the first part of the procedure where hairs are removed from the donor site, the atmosphere is relaxed and the team are amazing at what they do. I can honestly say the only downside to the day was the my partner managed to get a picture of me wearing crocs, something I swore I would never do :).

“The process is like no other and does take some time but I knew that in entering the procedure, the team are really thorough and excellent at what they do reassuring along the way taking his time to get it right. The support he has from his team is first class and the ladies went about the implants really methodically working simultaneously together to place each follicle. So for me because I lived so far away from London I did develop some real soreness around the head and believed I had an infection which is something that can happen, I spoke to the emergency hot line and sent pictures in, to which they that same day prescribed some low level antibiotics, the pharmacist sent them out via a carrier but unfortunately they took three days to get to me despite being urgent, my head was sore and the weekend was coming so I had to source them myself from my own GP surgery. So now its almost five weeks on, things are looking normal, hair has taken, and is starting to look good and I can now see what it will look like longer term. Would I have done this now knowing what was actually involved – yes I would it is really worth it.”

“I had a beard transplant carried out on the 9th October 2018 in London. It was a very long process, which I knew it would! The team were just wonderful!!! They made sure throughout the whole process that I was happy and comfortable, and they worked at my pace not theirs!

I do have to have several local anaesthetic injections in both the scalp (donor site) and the face. I didn’t experience any problem with this, but I do think I have quite a high pain threshold!
It’s now 17 days since the transplant, and I’m perfectly happy with everything! All the scabs and crusting (sorry about this, if you’re a bit squeamish!!) There’s absolutely no pain whatsoever! The hairs are quite noticeable on my chin, under my lower lip, as there wasn’t any hair there at all. And over all the appearance looks pretty good at the moment!

He couldn’t do enough to make me feel relaxed and happy! And he explained everything to before, during and after the procedure. And I would just like to mention his ‘team’, Farzana, Julie, Keira, Anni, and Marcin – what a great bunch of people! They made me hot drinks, supplied me with food, water, tv to watch and music to listen to!! I’m partially sighted, and they really took care of me!
If you are considering a hair transplant, this is the man to use!!!

Thanks so much, each and everyone of you!”

“Superb job! I had my procedure two days ago performed by the team – they were very considerate and professional and I would recommend unreservedly . – fantastic job guys many many thanks !!!!!”

“Had a really positive experience with them from start to finish. Very friendly and informative initial meeting; following a decision to progress I was given an advisor I could call at any time. I was daunted ahead of the procedure , but I shouldn’t have been. Dr M was brilliant, really knowledgable and calm and the day passed very quickly. After care was good, my contact supported me through questions that arrived. 6 months on I’m over the moon.the results are amazing , however after my 6 month review I was told I only had 42% growth (which is normal) so that is just out of this world! I’d be happy if it stopped growing now, but to have the same again to come is life changing. I’d definitely recommend.”

“I am an aesthetician working in Harley Street and know lots of Hair transplant surgeons on Harley Street. I chose them because of recommendations from some of my own patients. I sent my uncle for a consultation. There was no pushy sales technique. He is now booked for September.”

“I saw the team for a consultation a year ago.It felt very different talking to a doctor from a sales person who I had met in other clinics . They were factual, realistic and honest and told me what was possible and not possible in the consultation . I have had a fantastic result nine months later. I am really pleased I went for it. It’s been life changing!”
