05 April, 2021

Female hair loss is also not a rare phenomenon, statistics show that fewer than 50% of women maintain a full head of hair for their whole life. However, if you are unfortunate enough to experience hair loss there are some great hair thinning treatments in Singapore that can help.

There are several different reasons why men and women experience hair loss. In men, the most common is male pattern baldness, which is a genetic condition affecting more than 50% of all men over the age of 50. In women, genetics can play a part in their hair loss, but there may be other reasons including hormones, stress and even certain hairstyles which can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia.

Available treatments for hair thinning in Singapore

It is important to determine the cause of your hair thinning before deciding on the treatment that is best for you. Additionally, if your goal is to have a healthy crown of hair, it is best to not let your hair or scalp problems go untreated. This can lead to significant hair loss and permanent bald spots.

There is a huge range of treatments for hair thinning in Singapore including:

  • Non-invasive – Does not involve breaking the skin to enter the body
  • Non-ablative – Targets the underlying skin tissue without damaging the surface of the skin
  • Minimally-invasive – Enters the surface layer of the skin
  • Minimally-ablative – Removes the top layer of skin

Choosing the best treatment for you depends on the cause and severity of your case. Here is an overview of hair thinning treatment options available in Singapore.

Cell Nutrition for Hair Thinning

Cell therapy involves stem-cells or stem-cell conditioned media being delivered to the scalp. Traditionally this was done using a microneedle, however, Papilla Haircare has introduced a new way to get this nutrient-rich substance to the hair follicles which needle-phobics will appreciate.

Using ScalpElectroporation® (S.E.P.) technology, electric currents deliver the stem-cells into the scalp to treating hair thinning in Singapore, increasing the skin’s absorption rate by 17 times. This gets the stem cells directly delivered to the root of your hair problems.

The Cell Nutrition Therapy is suitable for all ages and hair types struggling with mild hair loss and thinning, and the benefits of this treatment also include:

  • Deep follicle cleansing
  • Reduced scalp inflammation
  • Enhanced scalp immunity
  • Restored pH levels
  • Lymphatic toxin discharge
  • Suitable for male hair loss and female hair loss

DNA Activator for Hair Thinning

Iontophoresis applies low electric current pulses through the skin to administer substances with medicinal properties into the body. In Papilla’s new DNA Activator, this treatment combines both iontophoresis and ionization processes to effectively deliver healthy growth cells into the scalp to combat hair thinning.

The low current pulses also trigger hair cell regeneration in the scalp, waking up dormant follicles and encouraging the hair regrowth stage.

In contrast to Papilla’s signature S.E.P. Activator for Hair Loss treatment, the DNA Activator is recommended for those who experience milder hair loss symptoms and hair thinning.

Scalp RF RegenULTRA with Salmon PDRN

Radiofrequency (RF) has commonly been used as a skin tightening procedure, but as a hair thinning treatment, it is an innovative approach. The mildly ablative treatment uses nanoneedles across the scalp to deliver hair growth factors. The nano-fractional RF energy also helps to stimulate the follicles, encourage the production of melanin and collagen, and deliver nutrients to the base of the hair follicle.

In Papilla Haircare’s Scalp RF RegenULTRA hair loss treatment, salmon PDRN is delivered into the scalp with RF energy. After 10 sessions, patients saw:

  • 31.6% improvement in hair count
  • 18% improvement in hair shaft thickness

Mesotherapy Micro-Needling

Micro-needling has become a skincare staple in recent years, but less well known is that it is also an effective way to treat hair thinning.

Micro-needling the scalp creates a physical pathway through the skin to easily deliver active ingredients to the dermis layer, while also stimulating and strengthening hair follicles and releasing growth factors. The micro-injuries also encourage the regeneration of the follicles promoting hair growth.

While there is perfectly good at-home derma-rollers that you can use for your scalp, it is best to leave these minimally invasive hair loss treatments to the professionals. This reduces any side effects, risks, or complications that you may experience.
