Hair Loss Treatment

Generally, hair loss is the loss of hair from the scalp (on our head) or other body parts. Hair loss can include excessive shedding, hair thinning, receding hairline, patchy bald spots, or excessively oily or dry scalp. Hair loss differs between men and women, and can also be different according to region and race (a topic still under research!).

Age is certainly a factor, though not the ultimate one. Hair loss is more likely to affect males, elder people, and highly stressed individual. Fewer than 45% of women go through their lives without any hair loss problem at all, while 50% of men have been found to have mild hair loss, and 75% with moderate to severe hair loss.

Hair loss in men is more of an expectancy compared to that for women. By the age of 80 years, 80% of men are affected by hair loss. Besides, 25% of men start showing hair loss signs as early as in their 20s! 

For women, about ⅓ of women experience hair loss at some point in their lives, and ⅔ women experience hair loss after menopause. However, hair fall is actually extremely normal for both women and man. Losing up to 250 strands of hair when you shampoo is normal for women with long hair!

Aging is no doubt the most common cause of hair loss. However, did you know that you aren’t actually ‘losing hair’, but more on reduced hair growth during old age? On average, our hair grows up to 1.5 inches every month. The process of aging slows down the hair growth (which is unavoidable). So when your hair growth is slower than your hair fall, you start to notice less hair on your head.

However, you may want to see a specialist when you experience the following conditions:

  • Rapid hair loss
  • Hair loss accompanied by itching, skin irritation, pain etc.
  • Hair loss happens after consuming certain foods or medication

Hair Loss Treatment is commonly used to treat the following diseases/condition: Hair Loss

Hair loss is a common longstanding problem for both men and women, albeit in different forms across gender. Hair loss can be caused by aging, genetics, diet, hormones, or skin infections and medications.

There are several types of hair loss treatment that can be done for you to regain a head full of hair, including Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, mesotherapy, hair regrowth injections, and others.

Discuss with your doctor to see which treatment suits your condition best to help you achieve your desired results.

Sometimes, hair loss can be caused by scalp infections like fungal infections or skin disorders. These can usually be treated with medicines or medical treatments, allowing hair to grow back after treatment.

Some medications or treatments can also lead to hair loss, especially those involving cancer (chemotherapy and radiotherapy), diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, or high blood pressure. Hormonal medication, birth control pills, steroids and acne medications affect our hormonal balance and may also lead to hair loss.

Treatments are aplenty these days for hair loss, so even though your hereditary hair loss can be unavoidable, it is certainly treatable. From topical medicines to treatments and procedures, find your preferred treatment at your preferred clinic, here.

It is important to always find out the root cause of the hair loss problems before deciding on the treatment ot be done, and that's exactly what a skin specialist would do.

There are two types of hair loss, scarring alopecia which means there are no more hair follicles on the scalp for hair growth, and non-scarring alopecia, the condition where hair follicles are still present but no hair is growing out of it.

The most common type of hair loss is male and female pattern hair loss, a type of non-scarring hair loss.

Treatments like medication (eg. minoxidil), PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), stem cell treatment and hair transplant can be administered based on your condition after a thorough diagnosis by the skin specialist doctor.

If you have no more hair follicles on your scalp, it means that you have scarring alopecia, or also known as a stable alopecia.

In this case, medications or other external treatments wouldn't be effective as it be able to stimulate anymore hair growth our of the hair follicles which aren't present anymore.

So hair transplant may be needed, where the cosmetic surgeon takes the hair roots from other parts of your body (without hair loss problems) and transplant them onto your scalp.

Hair loss can lead to baldness or alopecia. Conventional treatments for hair loss are shampoos, hair vitamins, etc. Some people who suffer from baldness opt for hair transplant.

The most common cause for hair loss are thyroid disorders, vitamin/mineral deficiency, hormonal imbalances (including stress).

Due to the diagnostic nature of Functional Medicine, it is in a unique position to accurately identify the root cause of hair loss/alopecia and provide natural strategies for managing this disorder. Treatments may vary for each individual thus consultation is most encouraged.

Before engaging any treatments for hair loss, it is important to first find out the cause of hair loss.

Is it due to your diet?
It is important to maintain a healthy diet to avoid (or delay) hair loss. Some nutrients play major roles in hair growth.

Sometimes, a lack of iron or protein (especially iron for women) can lead to hair loss. When our body experience a lack of protein, our body rations the protein in its operation - by stopping hair growth. So don’t forget to load up with proteins - moderately, of course.

Is it due to your hormones?
Hair loss caused by hormonal changes are usually temporary. This is a usual case for women after childbirth or menopause, when severe changes to the hormones are experienced. Hair loss is also normal after giving birth due to the trauma suffered during natural labour causing hormonal spikes.

Our thyroid gland (on our necks) plays a significant role in hormone production and balancing. Underactive or overactive thyroids can affect hormone production, metabolism, and impair hair growth as a result.

After getting your condition diagnosed by a verified doctor, the right treatment can be administered.

Yee Thai Nean - 14th December 2017

I was beyond impressed with my experience at this doctor’s office. My first contact was with Mr Jason and I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind he was and how fast he was at getting back to me! A lot of doctors don’t realize how important it is to have administration like Mr Jason. The first point of contact is crucial! Now on to the appointment, my appointment ran on time, Dr Tristan was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! I would highly recommend this clinic.

Aishah Idris - 9th November 2017

I went there for my allergy that affected my skin. Went to previous clinic a month before and it got worse, but after I went to Aessence Aesthetic Clinic, just after a few days, my skin condition due to the allergy got a lot better. The staff and doctors are friendly as well. Highly recommended especially if you have a sensitive skin like me😊😊

Pn. Suri - 25th July 2017

Clinic Clique was excellent! After my son received his first laser treatment, the clinic also called me to schedule follow-up sessions and asked about my son's condition. I didn't wait very long since I had already set the time and date for my appointment. As soon as I got to the clinic, it was already my turn. For my son's case, the cost for one session of laser treatment was around RM450. I'm still not sure how many sessions are needed since it depends on how my son's birthmark. The first time, I went to the clinic at 10 am, so the area was quite jam and finding parking was difficult.

Salina - 12th June 2017

I've been here for a few sessions in April, and I'm very satisfied with my treatments here! The doctors and staffs are very friendly, and treated me very well, and the medications are actually very good! I've recovered from my conditions here.

My overall experience here is good! I've been here for 2 times now for my whitening drip treatment. It costs me about RM500 per treatment, and it is reasonable for me! The doctor and staff I've been in touch with are very friendly and nice, and they provide me with clear informations. The staff from KL contacted me to arrange appointments etc., and she always answers my questions promptly via Whatsapp. By the way, I could get easy access to parking here, and the entrance is usually just near to where I've parked my car!

Pang - 27th February 2017 - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

Suddenly there was a lot of acne on the face. At the same time, several questions were sent to several clinics through the platform. The explanation was the most detailed. The information most helped me and I decided to go to this place to receive treatment (taking medicine + needle cleaning). The service of the clinic is very good. The doctors are very nice and the explanations are very detailed. I have already been to the clinic 2 times. The next course of treatment is 2 weeks later. My skin condition is currently well controlled, but the problem of pock has not yet been resolved.

Azlin - 27th April 2018 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

After I got my feedback go straight to the clinic. I went to get two doses of sting and hair loss. But there is no thorough treatment, Doctors only look at the medicines. For hair loss I get shampoo, for the freckles there are 3 types of medicines, so all four types of medicines I can. As far as my days of eating medicines with shampoo is still no change. The doctor said the appoinment would come in the month of May 8 or 9 May like that. Not satisfied with the reason why nothing has changed. It's a long time to eat this medicine. No, I'll see you again.

Irma - 16th October 2017

Getting better already! I am having skin allergy and doctor advises me to take antibiotics, creams, and supplement for about a month. The medication is really effective for me! Besides, doctor has also advises me to stop eating certain foods like fermented foods, fast food, sugary foods. The doctor has helped me very much, explained a lot to me. Hmm..just that the cost is a little bit pricey for me which i spent about RM376. Anyway i understood that the supplement is from US, and overall i would say their service is really okay for me!

Sin Pei Chin - 13th February 2018

I think that the environment is fine since it was well maintained and the price is fairly reasonable. I feel as though the waiting time could be reduced at times.

Farzad - 7th March 2018

Honestly, this clinic is the fastest one that replied to my enquiry. I have just received one PRP treatment and definitely going back for the upcoming sessions. Next session would be after 4-5 weeks. The doctor is very nice, professional and I am pleased to meet them. Doctors and staffs that I met here are so wonderful. It is a little bit hard to find the place. Otherwise, all is good.

Iwan - 1st February 2018

I went for a consultation on sebaceous cyst removal, then immediate operation last week. I was in and out of the clinic within one hour. Then headed back today to have the stitches removed. And yes I found the price very good! Dr Chin performed a first class operation. I had the sutures removed today. The service was impeccable all round and I will rate 5 stars!

K
Khee Guan - 19th January 2018

The service is not bad. So far I have received an injection treatment once (steroid injections if I'm not mistaken). Dr Chong said that 3 to 4 treatments are required to see the effect. Consultation fee is RM80, and the first treatment was RM250. Maybe the treatment cost is a little pricey, because I have asked other clinics and some have offers to waive the consultation fee. Other than the price, the service at the clinic is not bad.

Jel Utorr RN - 2nd February 2018

The doctor is very professional, ethical and honest - he gave me genuine advice and recommend me treatments that are indeed suitable for me! The coordinator was very efficient and detailed.Besides, the clinic environment is very good, too! clean, not too crowded...It's my first time doing the treatment, I get nervous, but throughout the overall experience - from the pick-up, procedures, communication, etc., It is all a very pleasant experience! I believe this is why I chose this clinic for my treatment!

Service was great, doctor was very good (short-haired female doctor). The staff at the front counter were all friendly. The cost for two laser treatments were RM 800, antibiotics was RM 15 and consultaion was RM 30. Since my first treatment was on 17th May, I haven't seen major improvements yet.
