This well-es­tab­lished clinic has made a name for it­self with its hair trans­plants.

In 2006, Dr Harold Ma es­tab­lished Freia Med­i­cal in Sin­ga­pore, an aes­thetic clinic to pro­vide min­i­mally in­va­sive treat­ments, among them a range of skin and hair lasers and body con­tour­ing de­vices. He is also cur­rently col­lab­o­rat­ing with A*star on hair cell bi­ol­ogy and hints of ex­cit­ing dis­cov­er­ies to be re­vealed in the future.

But what has put the clinic on the map is Dr Ma’s FUE hair trans­plant. The pro­ce­dure in­volves mov­ing healthy hair fol­li­cles from the back of the scalp to the front and top, where thin­ning usu­ally oc­curs. It is car­ried out un­der local anaes­thetic and the pa­tient goes home the same day. Freia says clients can be back at work within five to 10 days and hair be­gins to grow af­ter four to six months.

The cost ranges from about S$7,000 (RM21,000) to S$20,000, de­pend­ing on the com­plex­ity and ex­tent of the thin­ning.

Dr Ma says: “At the core of this qual­ity is an ob­ses­sion to bring out the best in our clients, to bring the lat­est tech­nol­ogy to them while pro­vid­ing a per­sonal touch.” ≠
