Some of the popularly asked questions are:

With so many medical clinics providing Hair Loss Treatment, and so many different treatment options available in Malaysia, how do you make the right choice?

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.

Maureen - 26th April 2017

For my experience so far, it's very good! Doctor is very friendly, very ghelpful, and I can understand the explanation very clearly. I paid around RM1070 for my treatment, and will go back for follow-up session in mid May.

Leira Yap - 12th December 2018

Cosy and spa kind of atmosphere with great and informative services by doctor and beautician! Ps:one big bonus that they are pretty and very friendly! It feels so stressless to chat with them during my skin treatment. 😊

Suhada - 17th February 2017 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

I have laser treatment, the total length of treatment is 6 months. The service and doctor are all good and ok.

FAZILLAH - 6th December 2017

I am very satisfied with the treatment & service provided.The staffs were very friendly and helpful.The location was strategic and it was easy to find parking near the clinic

Ms. Wong - 9th October 2017 - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

The two courses of treatment were injection. So far, no obvious results have been seen. There will still be hair loss, and the doctor will give a better Tonic. I am actually not sure about the real reason for hair loss, so I plan to do a full body check up later in a hospital. Before deciding to go to the nearby Dr. KO branch for treatment, it was because my husband had had a hair loss treatment at the barber's headquarters. She had PRP and hair transplants for almost six months. And, seeing that he also had a significant effect after taking the treatment. For the branch in Kajang, I personally feel that the service is fairly good and I am quite satisfied. I don't normally give a full score of five stars. Leaving a star allows the clinic to have room for improvement.

Hanis Farhanah binti Sukor - 17th September 2015

The doctor is friendly and the environment is good and clean.

Pn. Asmawati - 14th July 2017 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

5 stars! Because everything is ok, the staff is good. For my case, take medicines and creams, for two months. Ok, there's a good change. Acne decreases. Think of it later to bring the child try Facial. :)

Ilham - 16th October 2017 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

First there are pills, facial cleansers, and cream. The cost of treatment is about RM500. For the second time, there are only pills, costing RM300. After two months of eating medicines, acne has not only been acne scarring. For scarring, acne needs other treatments.

Roy - 24th April 2018

I visited Dr Ko clinic already last February & received treatment that I needed there. Your information really helped me a lot, really appreciate it. I'm working at rural areas right now & will visiting again dr ko clinic again to continue my treatment once im on leave. By the way, I have received non invasive hair treatment therapy, consist of 2 kind of oral medicine & 1 liquid hair scalp spray. It cost me about rm780.00. 😃

faynella stella - 6th July 2017

I just went for my first consultation yesterday and the doctor prescribed me some medications as well as a medicated hair spray. I wish the doctor could explain to me better about what he's giving me, but overall its okay, he's just so kind and good to me! The staffs may not like to explain much, though...

Pn Marniati - 17th May 2016 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

For me, the price of treatment is worth it. Good service. Doctor for good explanation, staff performance is also satisfactory. The clinic environment is quite comfortable. Only the area is lacking in parking space. As soon as the wrong way goes in, go back and forth.

Mr Thinesh - 26th May 2016

So far I can see the changes after I received the medication treatment. Also, their service is good and they are so friendly and helpful !

En. Ismadi - 31st July 2017 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

Doctor for medicines and serum (spray). The doctor and his staff are the best, the best! For some we do not understand it, so doctors explain it. Although his doctor is Chinese, but he also speaks Malay. Clinics are also clean, look like exclusive, with the usual clinic.

Shahrul - 11th September 2017 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

There's a good change but it's a bit slow..Doktor once explained that if taking hair cream will slowly grow in comparison to injection. But that time is a bit scared too ... maybe next time will consider take injection. The cost for cream once with the consultation is RM100. I also bring a friend who has a dry skin problem, a week is more effective, the cost of treatment for him is at least RM230 ... The doctor's service is also ok ...

Khairul - 20th June 2017

I got a tonic and some medications for 2 months. The cost is RM330, and for me, it's very reasonable. Now I can see my hair is growing very well (especially the top part)! The doctor is also very kind. How nice if the clinic looks more modern, hehe!

Everything is ok je, satisfied with his service so far, just waiting in the clinic a little slow, but the other good.

Zanariah - 30th June 2017

So far so good here. I've bought a package of RM8,800 for 6 treatment sessions, it's a little pricey for me, but it's worth to give it a try as I've used various products before this and the results were unsatisfactory. So far I've done 2 sessions already, and hope to see how it goes after I've completed the 6 treatments!

Mr.Chng - 20th December 2016 - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

Surgery, services, and explanations are all very good. At present, only worried about the progress of the recovery period. Because of headaches, swollen eyes. The doctor said that this is normal and will last for about two weeks.

MR.HONG - 4th August 2017 - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

I face the issue of hair loss. I am currently eating medicines prescribed by the clinic. For the time being, I have not seen any results. The weight of the drug is one month (about RM300 or so), and doctors still need to go back for a review. Overall, the clinic's service is very good, I play 4 stars!

Azizah Yusuf - 3rd March 2017

I went here to have laser hair removal, and was extremely happy with the results. Dr. Kuladeva is very nice and personable. he did his best to make me feel comfortable. The staff was also very comforting. I will definitely be back and also highly recommend giving it a try.

Nabil - 15th August 2017

I just got my treatment last week. I didn't notice any changes yet but it's normal because it's still quite soon after the treatment. There were many types of medicine- some were in the form of pills and some shampoo. The cost was RM 400 but honestly, it was quite pricey for me since I am still a student but the doctor was okay.I will meet him again next week.

Nisha - 26th April 2017

It was good! The doctors and staffs are very helpful, and the clinic seems new, it's nice here! I've done with 1 PrP session, and now 3 more sessions left!

Mr Nag - 20th January 2017

I'm very satisfied with the service! The doctor frankly told me my hair will grow after 4-6 weeks during the consultation, very professional. I've received the treatment for 3 times and now I'm thinking of receiving 4th times.

Afiqah - 12th February 2017

"Fractional CO2 Laser The service was superb. I did Fractional CO2 Laser here and the result was satisfying. My mild acne scars improved by 70% and it was just from the first treatment. I think I will get back my flawless skin by next treatment. For budget conscious patients, this is a great place. Once they quoted the price (example:RM 900) that's the price you have to pay (no hidden charges, "not inclusive GST yet" excuses). I am frankly tired of having to deal with other clinics that are not "honest" in quoting their service price. Keep up the good practise!"

NURUL NISA ADLINA - 28th December 2017 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

Very satisfied with the treatment received. Although the treatment price is around RM 650, but I think it is reasonable to pay for the price of medication and blood test. The treatment is very effective.
