On average, the scalp has 100,000 hairs that cycle through periods of growing, resting, falling out, and regenerating. An average adult sheds about 100 strands of hair a day which will not cause noticeable thinning of the hair on the scalp because new hair is growing at the same time.
But if the hair growth cycle is disrupted, or if a hair follicle is damaged, hair may begin to fall out more quickly than it is regenerated, leading to symptoms such as a receding hairline, hair falling out in patches, or overall thinning.
But hair loss does not happen overnight, it is a long and slow process that can take anywhere from a few short years to several decades.
This depends on the underlying reason for the hair loss, but there are also medication available for hair loss (eg Minoxidil, Finasteride)
There are currently many of these in the market but effectiveness of these applications differs depending on individuals. (eg Anthralin)
It invigorates circulation and stimulation to encourage hair follicles to grow hair. However, results are inconsistent.
This involves the removal of hair from a part of the head that has hair and transplants it to a bald spot. Sedation is required in view and it does not reverse hereditary hair loss
This method involves three-steps – drawing of blood, processing it and then injecting it into the scalp. However, this is currently not allowed in Singapore.
Stem cells in our body are responsible for repair and regeneration. They do this by secreting protein cytokines in the vicinity of the injured area to create an ideal environment for our own cells to self-repair. As we age, the quantity and quality of these cytokines deteriorate, leading to a slower regenerative cycle as well as a longer recovery process.
Calecim® Professional stem cell serum is derived from a patented source of umbilical cord lining, it contains a potent mixture of proteins, cytokines and growth factors, to improve scalp health and promote hair rejuvenation. The proteins work to strengthen the tissues, while growth factors increase cell turnover, for faster hair growth. The cytokines in the Calecim® serum also help to increase skin cell turnover and improve the condition and general health of the hair.
It is possible to combine this with other complementary treatments to maximise hair growth and minimise hair loss. Make an appointment with us today to discuss further.
