Hair follicles suffers from burnout too. Miniaturization, or shrinking of hair follicles, is the pathway to baldness, and it can affect a third of women by the time they hit their 30s. Women are prone to hair loss and thinning just like men. In fact, American Hair Loss Association found that nearly 40% of hair loss sufferers are women. Common causes include hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, aging, chronic illnesses (like anaemia), stress and “traumatic” hair treatments (heat and chemical).
So what are the good stuff when it comes to hair restoration? Unanimously, doctors recommend a multi-pronged approach – stacking multiple treatments synergistically to give the best results. We check out the comprehensive range of hair-boosting therapies at SW1 Clinic, the largest aesthetic and plastic surgery clinic in Singapore.

Viviscal Professional supplements has a hair-tailored mix of amino acids, vitamins and minerals clinically proven to promote hair growth.
Getting To The Root Of The Problem
In this case, the hair roots or follicles. Use a minoxidil-based product on the scalp is shown to reduce hair loss and boost hair growth. It works by increasing blood flow to the follicles, promoting its health. To further enhance the effects of minoxidil, the Revitascalp treatment at SW1 Spa, includes a lymphatic massage to rev up the scalp circulation, whilst massaging in minoxidil and hair building nutrients such as vitamin B12, folic acid and amino acids. The relaxation that comes with this “hair-cial” will also help to reverse any hair-losing stress.
