Well Accepted Hair Loss Treatments in Singapore
There are various hair loss treatments available in Singapore addressing male and female hair loss conditions. Well accepted treatments offered by established trichology practices include:
- Over-the-counter and Prescription Medications
- Hair Transplants
- Regenera Activa
- Herbal-Based Solutions
- Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
All these solutions aim to improve hair loss conditions and could act in synergy to enhance hair regrowth. There are generally no drawbacks to undergoing a combination of these treatments at the same time, although it is advisable to limit to not more than two.
It should be noted that if the scalp is dominant, no treatment will be effective to rekindle hair growth.
The underlying causes of hair and scalp issues are multifaceted, including physiological, medical conditions, chemically induced and genetic factors. Regardless of the preferred options, one should consult a professional as soon as possible and start treatment early.
Aspects of the Common Hair Loss Treatments
Hair Loss Medications
Common medications to treat hair loss includes FDA approved Minoxidil (Rogaine) and Finasteride (Propecia) and others like Antiandrogens and Corticosteriods targeting specific causes of hair loss. These drugs are generally safe, however, they are not suitable for females who are pregnant or planning to get pregnant or nursing. Side effects include skin irritation and excessive hair growth, including on the face in some females. In males, possible side effects include erectile dysfunction and decreased libido.
It is advisable to consult a doctor or dermatologist before starting medications for hair loss.
One disadvantage of synthetic drug treatment is that hair loss will resume after the medication is stopped.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Common hair transplants include Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUT involved the removal of a thin strip of skin from the healthy part of the head, divided into tiny hair grafts and transplanted to an area with few or no hair. In the FUE procedure, one hair follicle is removed at a time from the back of the scalp. The subsequent steps are the same as FUT. The procedures are performed under local or general anesthesia.
Some amount of downtime is expected. A hair transparent is generally a safe procedure, but as with any surgery, there is a certain amount of risk such as bleeding, and infection.
Regenera Activa is one of the most common procedures offered by the medical aesthetic practice in Singapore, which involved obtaining autologous micro-grafts from healthy hair cells and injected into areas suffering from hair thinning. It is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure which does not involve surgery. Compare to hair transplant surgery, there is no downtime and medically safe.
Depending on the degree of baldness, multiple sessions are typically needed to get visible results . It should be noted that the hair growth is not permanent and the procedure needs to be repeated typically yearly to maintain the hair fullness.
Natural Herbal Solutions
Natural Herbal Hair Loss Treatments harness the therapeutic effect of medicinal herbs and plants to combat ailments related to the scalp, securing an effective treatment for hair loss and scalp conditions. Premium herbs and plants like Dang Gui, Ginseng and wild peppermint that exhibit anti-hair loss properties and contain rich antioxidants are effective in combating ailments related to scalp issues.
Containing natural nutrients free of chemical active ingredients, modern trichology devices and applications are an integral part of herbal hair loss treatment, instrumental to the effectiveness of the therapy.
Herbal-based solutions are generally safe and suitable for everyone including pregnant ladies. Herbal-based solutions are known to treat the disorders from the root. The effect will gradually improve over time and the resulting improvement is secure, even when the treatment stops.
Laser Hair Loss Therapy (LLLT)
Low-Level Laser Therapy is an FDA-approved treatment for androgenetic alopecia (AGA), the most common type of hair loss in both men and women. Laser light radiating at a specific wavelength possesses excellent penetrative properties that will optimally stimulate cell metabolism and rejuvenate the hair follicles. This process, also known as Photobiomodulation, uses the non-thermal effect of low-intensity light to promote hair growth and increase hair density and thickness.
Each treatment session typically last less than an hour, suitable for those with a busy schedule. Being pain-free with no known side-effect and lower price, LLLT for hair loss treatment has gained popularity in recent years.
