The males fared worse as ¾ of them have male pattern hair loss by the age of 35 years old. The figures are alarming yet not many seek treatment for pattern hair loss either for fear of embarrassment or did not realize that they actually have excessive hair loss until its too late.
The causes of hair loss are varied and hair loss is psychologically distressing. Therefore, a doctor’s consult and detailed examination is crucial to allow accurate diagnosis and then treatment.
At GEM Clinic, we offer a total solution for excessive hair loss. Hair loss treatment requires a multi-prong approach that lays a solid foundation for hair regrowth. The main pillars of our hair loss treatment include hair tonic, shampoos and a unique hair filler.
The hair filler is a specially formulated gel and contains various peptides that are crucial for hair rejuvenation. The gel is injected into the scalp every 2 weeks in a brief procedure with just minimal discomfort. Once administered, the gel slowly disperses nutrients and peptides into the scalp to reach every hair follicle.
The hair filler has also a proprietary property that is able to suppress the action of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in scalp of men. DHT is known to cause miniaturization of hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.
Male clients will require an extra treatment modality that is oral medication. The medication is important to further suppress DHT levels in the body. This is because in clients with male pattern hair loss, certain areas of his scalp are hereditarily sensitive to DHT.
Hence, with our unique hair filler, combined with the tonics and shampoo, the scalp will receive the following benefits namely:
- Improved blood circulation
- Suppression of DHT action on hair follicles
- Improved scalp sebum control
We suggest at least 4 sessions of 2-weekly hair filler, then one session per month for another 4 months before going into the maintenance phase. With regular hair filler sessions, daily hair tonic and shampoo use, clients usually begin to notice some improvement in hair volume and thickness as early as 6-8 weeks.
More pronounced results can be expected by 6 months of treatment. We suggest clients to return to us every month for assessment and to renew their commitment to the treatment regime which requires much diligence and discipline.
In Gem Clinic, we also offer Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP as another add-on to hair rejuvenation treatment. We first draw a small amount of your blood, then extract platelets from the blood via the centrifugation process.
Platelets are natures’ ultimate gift to us as they contain over 30 types of growth factors. When these platelets are injected back into the scalp, they stimulate scalp blood circulation and hair growth. We usually advise clients to combine PRP therapy with the aforementioned treatments for best hair rejuvenation results.
