Most hair loss conditions can be treated. At Dr Eileen Tan Skin, Laser & Hair Transplant Clinic, dermatologist Dr Eileen Tan usually prescribes treatments such as minoxidil, a solution that is applied to the scalp to stimulate hair growth, and anti-androgens, which are taken orally to reduce hair loss. Also available is a low-level laser light therapy that targets the hair tissue to hasten microcirculation and wound healing. Patients with more serious hair loss can also consider hair transplantation, where hairbearing skin is surgically removed from other parts of the body and placed in the problem areas, to encourage permanent and natural hair growth.
