This procedure itself is actually very effective, although costly, and can help men regrow their own, natural hair again.
So what is the difference between these two organizations and which one offers the better solution? Here’s a guide to help you decide which one really comes out ahead.
Both companies have been around since the 1970′s providing hair loss treatments for men. They also work by employing a staff of physicians that are trained in hair transplant surgery and have years of experience in the field.
Bosley has performed over 200,000 hair transplant procedures on both men and women in 60 different countries. While Hair Club does not offer an exact number, they do reference “hundreds of thousands” of satisfied customers. Both Hair Club and Bosley also have aggressive marketing strategies that make them well known throughout the country.
Cost of the Procedure
Unfortunately, it’s hard to compare the cost between Bosley and Hair Club. This is partly due to individual variations in the cost.
It’s possible to get discounts from both organizations that can lower your price and you may also have success at negotiating a lower price, as many have.
Both companies allow you to qualify for a payment plan or financing to help you with the cost of the procedure with monthly costs ranging from $150 to $400.
Both have an average price of about $4 to $5 per graft, with between 600 and 3,000 grafts needed, depending on your hair loss. For most men, between $5,500 and $13,000 is necessary to get their desired coverage.
Bosley does offer to offset airfare expenses when you travel for a procedure in the form of free additional grafts. You can receive between 50 and 100 additional grafts depending on how far you must travel and other qualifications. This can be a nice bonus if you’ve already decided on Bosley.
The main difference between the two organizations is their clinic locations, which may make one company more available to you than the other.
Hair Club operates in Puerto Rico, Canada and the United States with 100 locations. Bosley, on the other hand, has clinics operating in the United States, Canada, Mexico and 65 other countries and has 23 regional surgical offices and 46 consultations in Mexico, Canada and the United States.
The Hair Club website does offer one advantage: you can easily view the physicians located in each region with the number of transplants they’ve performed, awards they’ve received and more.
Conclusion: Which Has Better Results?
If you read consumer reviews about each company you’ll find about the same information. Both have their share of negative and positive reviews.
While hair transplant surgery isn’t for everyone, making sure you select an experienced physician with a good track record is the key. Results vary by individual but as long as you aren’t looking for the same hair you had as a teenager and have realistic expectations, both Bosley and Hair Club can help you recover a receding hairline or fill in a bald spot.
Your best bet is to check out clinics with both organizations near you and compare your consultations. Which offers the best price? With which can you guarantee you’ll get a very skilled physician? You’ll get about the same results overall from each company but with a bit of careful research you can improve your chances of better results by screening doctors and choosing one you prefer.
