The Sloane Clinic™, a leading chain of medical aesthetic clinics in Singapore and Malaysia providing advanced aesthetic dermatology and cosmetic solutions now adds hair restoration therapies to its impressive repertoire, offering patients effective surgical and non-surgical hair restoration procedures specially designed to regain a full head of natural looking hair.
ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System
The effects of full or partial hair loss due to the typical genetic “pattern baldness” or other factors can not only greatly affect a person’s physical attractiveness but also his self-esteem. Hair transplantation has long been an option to restore receding hair lines. However, the invasiveness of traditional hair transplantation procedures and the lower success rates associated with manual methods have been deterrent factors for many.
Now, these concerns are a thing of the past with the ARTAS® Robotic System, the first and only FDA-cleared, physician-controlled, computer-assisted technology that is able to safely and effectively extract hair follicles for transplantation during the hair restoration process.
Using advanced digital imagery technology, the ARTAS® Robotic system is capable to map and analyse the density, angle and growth direction of each natural grouping of hair, known as follicular units which typically contain one to four hair follicles. The system uses this information in conjunction with algorithms to identify which follicular unit is the best to extract.
With the doctor’s guidance, the selected permanent follicular units are then precisely removed using the ARTAS® Robotic System’s image-guided robotics in a random fashion within the existing hair from the back or side of the head, called the “donor site”, so that those areas of the scalp maintain their natural appearance.
The hair is then meticulously transplanted into the thinning areas by the doctor, based on the patient’s treatment goals, while leaving a natural-looking donor area behind.
The system’s robotic precision offers hair restoration doctors and patients unprecedented levels of safety, efficacy and patient comfort. With the ARTAS® Robotic System, the doctor is able to harvest follicles using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) in half the surgery time and with significantly lower transection rates (hairs that have been unintentionally damaged in the process of the hair transplantation procedure) than with manual FUE.
This minimally invasive solution offers patients permanent results with no linear scar after the procedure, allowing patients to return to their normal activities in one to two days and wearing their hair in any style just like they once could.
As a result of its unparalleled innovation in the field of hair science, the ARTAS system was honoured with a gold medal in the 26th Edison Awards Ceremony held in Chicago. The award celebrates creativity and excellence in achievement.
Revage 670 Laser for Hair Rejuvenation
Those who desire a non-surgical hair restoration procedure that does not involve any prescription medications now have a new alternative – Revage 670 Laser. This FDA-approved low-level laser therapy is one of the newest breakthroughs in non-surgical hair restoration that utilizes Rotational PhotoTherapy (RPT) to rejuvenate thinning hair on both men and women.
The Revage 670 Laser contains thirty laser diodes that rotate 180 degrees around the scalp emitting painless cool laser energy to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles just beneath areas of thinning or balding scalp.
The enhanced blood flow stimulates dormant hair follicles into the active growth phase, while encouraging cellular and tissue regeneration for thicker, suppler and more durable hair shafts.
Revage 670 Laser is tailored for both male and female hair loss and is suitable for all skin types, skin and hair colour. It is especially effective for women with diffuse pattern thinning (scattered hair loss) and general weakening of hair as the laser light works to thicken fine, miniaturized hair.
Men who are starting to witness hair thinning, Revage 670 Laser can help to make their hair fuller and prevent more severe thinning and baldness.
Clinical studies have shown that the Revage 670 Laser can increase hair density by 40% and an impressive 85% success rate in halting the progression of hair loss.
The Revage 670 hair rejuvenation treatment is easy to work into a busy schedule as treatments take as little as 30 minutes per session without any downtime.
The recommended treatment protocol typically begins with a twice weekly treatment for the first six weeks, thereafter once weekly for the next sixteen weeks.
Once hair growth has been observed, periodic maintenance treatments as advised by the doctor may be required to maintain the benefits of the treatment.
“We are excited to be one of the first few clinics in Asia to offer the revolutionary ARTAS® Robotic procedure and the Revage 670 laser. It is our aim to offer both male and female patients of all ages the most advanced hair restoration options that are precise, effective and comfortable in a convenient one-stop locale,” says Dr Low Chai Ling, Medical Director of The Sloane Clinic™.
“We believe that true beauty transformation requires a holistic approach that needs to be nurtured from head to toe and providing holistic beauty treatments is key. With the introduction of ARTAS® Robotic hair transplant system and Revage 670 Laser, it completes our vision of offering a comprehensive menu of services from top to toe in a single stop,” Dr Low adds.
