Hair Loss Treatment

It is undeniable that regardless of anyone’s favorite hair length, most women lust after thick, luscious locks. Loss of hair can be a major reason for loss of self-confidence. No or less hair can make people feel very conscious about their looks.

Nowadays, hair fall or appearance of bald patches is not just limited to hereditary factors, overuse of commercial hair products, increasing stress levels, improper nutrition also contributes to hair loss too.

While there is no direct way to change the texture of the hair follicles, there are many things people can do to make hair appear thicker whilst reducing breakage and hair loss.

PRP for Hair Loss

 

By now you’re probably familiar with, or at least have heard of the “vampire facial,” a skin treatment that essentially uses your own blood to help facilitate a glowing, youthful complexion. What you probably haven’t heard of is that there’s a similar treatment for hair loss, and yes, it requires your own blood, too.

PRP treatment for hair loss is non-invasive hair regrowth treatment. A small amount of blood is obtained from your body from which platelet-rich plasma is isolated using centrifugation technology.

Our blood is made of two main components, red blood cells, and plasma. “The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors.”

Growth factors, in a sense, plays the role of a messenger, signalling skin cells to function. In fact, they’ve been used in medicine to treat a range of health issues, including arthritis, signs of aging, etc. The good news for anyone with thinning hair is that growth factors can “help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Should Go For PRP Treatment?

People with poor hair growth and weak hair are ideal candidates for PRP treatment for hair loss. PRP can also be beneficial for those suffering from alopecia areata.

Is It Painful?

We will use topical anesthetic cream to ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible.

How Long Does It Take?

It takes about 30-45 minutes. It takes 5-10 minutes to draw blood, another 10 minutes to spin out the other cells, and 10-15 minutes for injections.

How Often Should I Come In?

To begin with, I recommend 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart to boost hair growth.

Maintenance spaced out every 6-8 weeks or quarterly can be done thereafter, depending on your needs.

When Can You Expect The Results From PRP Treatment?

You can easily see the formation of baby hair’s growing on your scalp as early as 2 months into your treatment. But generally, it takes 6–9 months to see the overall full results after a PRP hair loss treatment.

What Is The Downtime?

There is no downtime as such. You can resume your daily routine right after the treatment. After a couple of hours, patients can even style their hair the way they want, take shower, and even shampoo their hair.

Microneedling for Hair Loss

 

Microneedling is another name for Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This is a popular cosmetic procedure, used mainly for the treatment of wrinkles and other signs of aging on the face. It’s also increasingly being used to treat scarring, acne, and other such skin imperfections.

Just like the skin on our face, the scalp also loses collagen as we age, resulting in slow hair growth and dormant hair follicles. When collagen production drops off (which it usually does around 30 years of age) it leaves hair follicles susceptible to weakening. Weak hair follicles don’t grow long and strong hair. Think of it like the frame of your mattress. Without it, the mattress would be clumpy and wrinkly. It’s in this way too that collagen is necessary for maintaining healthy hair follicles.

While microneedling revs up collagen production in the scalp just like it does on the face, it also brings blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and induces new stem cells that support hair growth

Microneedling is not suitable for women who are pregnant. Other than that, yes but please speak to us before considering this treatment if you:

  • Have a history of acne or eczema

Laser Hair Removal

Waxing, plucking and shaving are extremely tedious activities for many men and women. . All the shaving, plucking, and waxing—these everyday beauty rituals are painful and tedious, not to mention costly and if you miss a day, it can lead to unnecessary self-conscious moments.

That is why we brought in a cosmetic procedure called laser hair removal to help you reduce unwanted hair so that you can spend more time doing things you enjoy.

Laser hair removal has quickly became one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. We use a cosmetic laser to direct energy into hair follicles, which then destroys them and prevents the growth of unwanted hair in the treatment area. After a series of treatments, you will no longer need to remove hair on your own.

Avoid the potential for unwanted growths to ruin your good time with Laser Hair Removal Treatments at Radiant Clinique! Get the hair-free, silky smooth skin you’ve always wanted.

TREATMENT

Laser Hair Removal

• IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

 

IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal, photorejuvenation (e.g. the treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage, and thread veins).

 

Why IPL?

IPL is a safe and effective solution to permanently reduce unwanted hair!

The laser beams, or in IPL’s case, light waves, work by energy from light waves being absorbed by the dark pigment in the skin (your hair!). When that energy hits the dark pigment, it’s then converted to heat which causes damage to the hair follicle.The follicle absorbs the light and heat resulting in permanent damage. Which means no more hair!

Because hair grows in cycles and is easily influenced by hormonal changes, 6 – 12 treatments are normally recommended. Every client and every hair is different – so we suggest booking a consultation prior to your treatment so that we can get you feeling silkier smooth for much longer period of time!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is It Better Than Other Forms Of Hair Removal?

Shaving is time consuming and the grow back is almost instantly! For those who shaves but still want constant hairless bodies, shaving becomes part of the daily routine. Shaving also does not come without the nicks and rashes associated with a dirty or blunt blade.

Waxing seems like a perfectly good replacement for shaving. However, it also comes draw backs. The pain is the main thing that puts people off from changing to wax, even with the emergence of hot wax.

How Long Does It Take ?

Treatments take between 15 to 60 minutes depending on the treatment area.

Does It Hurt?

Patients have commonly described it as giving them a warm feeling or a pinging sensation.

How Long Does It Normally Take To See The Results?

Results varies on the area of the treated area and also the thickness and color of hair. During the treatment, hairs will shrivel. Then over the next week or two, the hairs will begin to shed. Many see results quicker in areas such as under the arms than they do in the bikini line and on their legs. Results will also be seen immediately when the hair tries to regrow, however it will be patchy and only after several sessions will many areas be nearly hair free!

Is It Safe?

IPL has been around for over 20 years and there have been no studies to indicate that IPL is unsafe. IPL does not contain any UVA/UVB light rays which are associated to increased skin cancer risk. There is also no ultraviolet light in IPL, therefore it does not damage DNA cells.

Is It Safe For All Skin Types?

Not all hair colors and skin types provide effective results. The ideal skin and hair type is fair skin with dark hairs as the light is attracted to melanin. However, this means that those with darker skin unfortunately cannot use IPL as it may discolor their skin.

What Should I Do Before My Treatment?

We ask that you shave the designated area on the day or the day before your treatment so we can target the hair follicle not the hair already there.

What Should I Do After My Treatment?

Avoid sun exposure and using sun cream is highly recommended. Any hair growth between sessions should be shaved off, not waxed or threaded. Also avoid perfumes, deodorant and hot showers directly afterwards.
