Medical Hair Loss Treatments – Hair Growth Pills and Laser Therapy
These treatments are for patients who are not yet ready for surgical hair restoration. It involves hair growth pills and Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) which can be used alone or in combination to boost the restorative effects.
Hair growth pills must be taken indefinitely to maintain results. Meanwhile, LLLT must be done regularly to boost results. These treatments can also be used to hasten the healing process after hair transplant surgery and enhance results during the healing process. Medications can also control further hair loss and the energy from LLLT are absorbed by the cells to initiate cellular repair to ultimately lead to optimum hair growth.
Hair Transplant Singapore (CIT FUE Hair Transplant)
The Cole Isolation Technique (CIT) technique is a refined and improved FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method. Through this service introduced three different ways of performing FUE such as the fully shaved technique, the partially shaved technique, and the C2G technique (no-shave).
The no shave method allows patients to be discreet with their hair transplant procedure. Without having to shave, it takes away the downtime that comes with other approaches. It also spares the patient from scar formation, making it a suitable option for those with a history of keloid formation and thicken or stretched scars.
This is a minimally invasive hair loss treatment where 3-4 tissue specimens are collected from the patient’s own scalp. This treatment takes away the risk of tissue rejection, allergy and sensitivity. Furthermore, it also assures growth potential. It is appropriate for patients who suffer from mild to moderate thinning or hair loss.
The collected specimens are placed in a device to extract cells and growth factors so that it can be administered into balding areas of the scalp to trigger regenerative action. It is a relatively short procedure without any downtime. The results can be expected in 30-60 days, characterised first by a reduction in hair loss followed by an improvement in hair density and thickness.
