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.
