Hair Loss Treatment In Singapore

Ozhean Zoey’s HairFULL Program

It is estimated that 70% of men will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. Most of them will suffer from androgenetic alopecia, a genetic condition that causes the hairline to recede in men and hair to thin in women. With such a high prevalence, it is no wonder that so many people are looking for a safe and effective treatment method that can restore volume to their hair again.

Well, look no more – here at Ozhean Zoey, we offer radiofrequency microneedling combined with other effective treatment methods to bring back lustre to your hair so you can be your confident self again. But first, let us understand a little more about hair loss and why other treatment methods don’t work that well alone.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF HAIR LOSS?

There are many types of hair loss, categorised mainly into two large groups:

Scarring alopecia

This is a collection of hair loss disorders due to trauma and autoimmune disorders, also known as cicatricial alopecia. This is a permanent hair loss that destroys hair follicles either due to inflammation or external injury such as trauma, infections or tumours.

Non-scarring alopecia

ALOPECIA AREATA

This happens due to autoimmune destruction of hair follicles. The hair tends to fall out in patches. Often, some people see recovery spontaneously without the need for intervention.

TINEA CAPITIS

This is a fungal infection of the scalp and hair shafts called ringworm, leading to scaly, bald patches on the head.

TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM

This type of hair loss occurs as a result of emotional or physical stress. The hairs prematurely enter the resting phase and become shed.

ANAGEN EFFLUVIUM

This refers to excessive hair shedding during the anagen or growth stage of the hair cycle.

TRICHOTILLOMANIA

This is a hair-pulling mental disorder where there is an irresistible urge to pull out hairs from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body, no matter how hard you try to stop.

ALOPECIA ANDROGENETICA

Also known as androgenetic alopecia, or male or female pattern hair loss, this is the most common form of hair loss that happens in both men and women due to genetic reasons. In men, the hairline recedes while in women, the hair thins out.

WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS FOR HAIR LOSS IN SINGAPORE AND THEIR LIMITATIONS?

Finasteride

(PROPECIA AND PROSCAR)

This is an effective medication for male pattern hair loss and FDA-approved. The mechanism of action is through inhibition of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) receptors in the hair. However, it has many systemic side effects such as:

  • Decreased sex drive
  • Trouble getting or keeping an erection
  • Ejaculation disorder
  • Increase in breast size and tenderness
  • Skin rashes

Because of these side effects, treatment is geared towards using topical finasteride that works like a hair lotion.

Minoxidil

(ROGAINE)

Minoxidil is an FDA-approved drug for women applied to the scalp to stimulate hair growth and slow balding. Minoxidil thickens hair strands and prolongs the growth phase of the hair. However, it does not stop the progression of hair loss.  

5% strength of the minoxidil formula is adequate. Higher strengths than this may cause scalp irritation.  

Minoxidil as a monotherapy has limited hair growth results, and usually can extend the hair growth cycle enough to grow small hairs but may not show long hair growth, especially for those hair loss patterns that are fast and aggressive.

Low-level Laser Light Therapy

(ROGAINE)

This was first discovered accidentally by a scientist who shone laser light at mice and later found hair growth in those areas. Laser light therapy is thought to help stimulate reentry into the anagen or growth phase of hair follicles, prolong anagen and increase proliferation of hairs in anagen phase. 

However, it is time-consuming with slow results. Treatment would usually require several sessions a week for a number of months, perhaps even for the rest of your life.  

It is also less effective for those in advanced stages of hair loss unlike those in the early stages. Long-term efficacy has yet to be established in these medical devices.

Microneedling

In the microneedling technique, fine needles are used to puncture the skin, improving collagen production and microvascularisation (growth of small blood vessels). This is minimally invasive and can help in androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata and other hair loss conditions.

There are many successes reported when microneedling is paired with other treatments, such as minoxidil. It is thought that microneedling facilitates penetration of such medications to help promote hair growth.

However, treatment is often painful and with a long downtime that involves scalp scabbing. This is true for conventional microneedling techniques, but not for Secret RF due to its gold-plated tips that help to prevent pain and damage.

Hair loss shampoos

There are some hair loss shampoos out there that claim to prevent hair loss or promote hair growth. This is highly unlikely because shampoo has a very short contact time with the scalp and the hair follicles. It just doesn’t have time to stimulate hair growth or prevent hair loss.

Hair loss shampoo is only effective if you have a scalp condition that is causing the hair loss, like seborrhoeic dermatitis (dandruff) or psoriasis, but not for male pattern hair loss.

Hair tonic for hair loss

Hair tonic is not meant to have dramatic effects on hair loss or cure it, but can help to supplement treatment. They also require at least 6 months of continuous use, and the results can vary based on individual hair conditions.

It is unlikely that putting your faith in hair tonic treatments will lead to any significant results.

Salon hair treatments

For this, the price varies and there are no actual studies or evidence to assess effectiveness and back their treatments.

This is probably the least scientific way of solving your hair loss problems, and it is generally not recommended.

Hair transplant

Hair transplant is done by transferring hair from areas with hair growth to areas that are balding. The results are distinct but it is very dependent on the skill of the surgeon themselves.

There is risk of serious complications such as scarring folliculitis which can result in permanent loss of hair. It is also a very expensive treatment.

OZHEAN ZOEY HAIRFULL PROGRAM

This is Ozhean Zoey’s proprietary radiofrequency microneedling program for full regeneration of hair for the scalp. It combines several treatments, including Secret RF and hair growth factors such as Minoxidil, to distinctly improve the efficacy and results.

A combination of fractional radiofrequency microneedling (RFMN) with 5% topical minoxidil has been shown to be effective and safe for male pattern hair loss. The number of strands of hair and the thickness of hair both increased in both monotherapy and combined-therapy.

Radiofrequency microneedling is an effective intervention method for hair loss that can be used with other treatments in order to induce dermal remodelling and collagen production that continue even after 6 months from the time of treatment.

What is the procedure of the Ozhean Zoey HairFULL Program?

  • Dr Sam of Ozhean Zoey doing hair treatment

    1. Microneedling RF with Secret RF

    Secret RF is used to insert the microneedles and release radiofrequency (RF) energy. The thermal energy improves collagen formation and increases scalp blood flow which makes it more effective than microneedling alone. 

    It also stimulates the stem cells in the hair follicles to enhance hair growth and prolong the growth phase of the hair. 

    Channels created by Secret RF allow for penetration of minoxidil and hair growth factors for even stronger hair growth when combined. 

  • 2. OZ Hair Growth Factor Treatment
    (optional)

    In this step, serum rich in hair growth factors are applied to the scalp followed by LDM  for better penetration. These hair growth factors are found in the form of exosomes, which are membrane bound vesicles, for better absorption and effect. 

    Some properties of growth factors are:

    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Non-toxic and safe
    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Non-toxic and safe

    Contains various core functional substances such as:

    • Fibronectin
    • Collagen
    • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)
    • Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)
    • Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFB1)
    • Keratinocyte growth factor (KGF)
  • 3. Local Dynamic Micro-massage (LDM)

    POST-CARE (OPTIONAL)

    This uses dual frequency ultrasound to stimulate scalp and further improve blood circulation, enhancing scalp health. It also helps improve penetration of scalp growth factors.

  • Step 4: Pico Laser

    Pico laser treatment delivers focused picosecond laser energy to acne scars and acne that leads to collagen remodeling of the acne scar tissue leading to smoother more pore less skin.

FAQS

Since the inception of Ozhean Zoey’s Hair-FULL program, we have had good response from our clients. We are unable to publish the results due to strict MOH guidelines, but will be happy to share more information with you at our centre.

After just one session, you should see some hair growth in the areas of concern. After 4-5 sessions, you should see good and distinct hair growth in those areas.

You will typically see just some mild redness of the scalp which will subside in a few days’ time.

We recommend adjusting some lifestyle factors to reduce hair loss. For example, stress management, having adequate sleep and a nutritious diet filled with proteins that help hair growth.

We also recommend using topical finasteride to reduce hair loss for male pattern balding.

1-4 maintenance sessions per year for Secret RF may be needed for faster, more acute or aggressive hair loss patterns.
