WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS?
According to a research, hair loss affects 56 million people globally. Normally, we shed off 100 strands of hair on a daily basis, however, this number increases for those who were affected by hair loss problem. As a result, it reduces the volume of your hair and exposes your scalp.
Usually, people will start losing their hair during their middle 30s or in their early 40s. The rate of hair loss increases by age. But what are the real reason behind hair loss?
One of the most contributing factor to hair loss is GENETICS. If your parent or grandparent have hair loss problems, it is a high possibility that it is your major factor to you having the same problem. The male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness often carried through generation to the next. Based on a research, genetics is responsible for hair loss for men and women over 50 by 50%.
Besides genetics, LIFESTYLE also contributes highly to the receding hairline and hair thinning. It includes your low protein diet, smoking habits, alcohol, and lack of sleep. An unhealthy lifestyle will cause a change in your hormone, leading it to weaken your metabolism. As your metabolism weaken, it will shorten the lifespan of your hair as it is more prone to death.
Thirdly, PREGNANCY and MENOPAUSE can also increase the chances of hair loss. As pregnant mothers or menopausal women, they will have natural hormone changes in their body, hair loss is expected. However, this is a very temporary situation and easily be cured after the delivery.
Lastly, one of the known main causes of hair thinning is DISEASE or ILLNESS. This include alopecia areata, hypothyroidism, acute stress disorder and syphilis. Majority of this diseases causes our immune system to attack the hair follicles, stopping it growth.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Premier Signature Hair Growth Laser emits a low level light energy of 630 – 670mm wavelength per second. As this laser exposed to the scalp, the laser light energy gets absorbed by the stem cells in hair follicle and energy is released in the form of ATP. This energy is then used by the hair follicle to do the needed repairing and stimulate the hair growth cycle. The light process promotes stimulation of epidermal stem cells in the hair follicle bulge and shifting the follicles into anagen phase.
LLLT stimulates anagen re-entry in telogen hair follicles, increase rates of proliferation in active anagen hair follicles, prolonging duration of anagen phase, and in result, prevent premature catagen development.
This process strengthens the villus hair roots before it gets weak and falls off. It also helps to stabilize the normal hair cycle in case of telogen effluvium. This low-intensity light also helps to stimulate cellular activity.
EXPECTATION & RESULT

Result can be seen as early as 2 months, depending on individuals. However, we often recommend our patients to combine it with other procedures such as FUE hair or PRP hair for maximum result.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Watch your diet: As the popular saying goes, “You are what you eat”. Our doctor highly recommended to avoid overconsumption of sodium in your food, and eat more high protein diet to increase keratin production for your hair. Foods like eggs, fish, spinach, and nuts are filled with proteins to help you achieve your goal faster. Besides that, eating berries can also avoid hair thinning. This is berries are loaded with beneficial compounds and vitamins that may promote hair growth.
Keep yourself hydrated: The key to keeping a healthy set of hair is as simple as drinking enough water. Our hair comprises of ¼ water, so, keeping a good routine of hydration can go a long way.
Reduce alcohol intake and avoid smoking: As drinking alcohol and smoking are a huge contributor of hair loss, lessening it activity may help you to hair growth. Smoking reduces the amount of blood circulation to your scalp, thus denying your scalp to receive the important nutrients for it to grow.
