Think about what makes a person look youthful — it’s not the absence of wrinkles or a positive attitude but a full head of hair.

Hair loss and hair thinning are common issues that affect millions of people worldwide. The process of hair loss can be complex and influenced by a range of factors, including genetics, age, hormonal changes, medications, and pregnancy. Both men and women can suffer from pattern hair loss and the results can be debilitating when it comes to self-esteem and confidence levels.

Hair growth follows a cycle of three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. During the anagen phase, the hair grows actively, and this phase can last for several years. In the catagen phase, the hair follicle shrinks, and the hair stops growing. Finally, in the telogen phase, the hair falls out, and the follicle remains inactive for a period of time before starting a new growth cycle. During our lifetime, there can be around 25 to 30 hair growth cycles, each lasting about five years.

Hair loss occurs when the hair follicles stop producing new hair, or when hair falls out more quickly than it can be replaced. Hair thinning is a gradual reduction in the diameter of individual hair strands, which can make hair look less dense and less voluminous.

Hair loss and hair thinning can be distressing for many people, but there are several treatment options available, depending on the underlying cause. These can include medications, hair transplants, and lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and stress reduction. Whatever the cause of your hair loss or hair thinning problems are, turn to The Clifford Clinic and its panel of experts who are able to prescribe a variety of treatments and supplements that target all levels of hair loss; from gradual thinning to severe balding.

For overall hair and scalp health

Hair Growth+ inCLINIC by Nourkrin at Clifford Clinic

Backed by three decades of proteoglycan research, Hair Growth+ inClinic by Nourkrin at Clifford Clinic is an oral supplement which is clinically proven to preserve hair and promote healthy hair growth. Proteoglycans are proteins that play a vital role in hair growth—a lack of it means that hair follicle enters a miniaturisation stage where it generates thinner and shorter hair until it no longer produce new hair. Hair Growth+ inCLINIC by Nourkrin at Clifford Clinic contains drug-free ingredients from marine-derived extract and is a Proteoglycan Replacement Therapy that manages all types of hair loss.

Hydrafacial Keravive Scalp Treatment

The Hydrafacial Keravive Scalp Treatment consists of three steps to deep-cleanse the scalp and follicles, improve circulation while infusing scalp with nourishment. Using its signature Vortex Technology, dead skin, excess sebum and impurities are removed from the scalp and hair follicles without damaging it. The Keravive Peptide Complex Solution is then infused into the scalp. This concentrated serum is formulated with five biomimetic growth factors and two skin proteins that simultaneously exfoliate, hydrate and nourish to promote healthier and stronger hair growth.

This treatment can be performed as a standalone treatment to maintain scalp and hair health, or to complement other hair loss treatments to enhance its benefits.

AnteAGE HAIR System

The AnteAGE Hair System consists of two products — a hair serum and a handheld dermal needling device. The hair serum uses WNT1 stem cytokines, poly botanicals and a myriad of natural stimulants to improve hair growth cycles. While the AnteAGE Hair Serum can be used with or without the microneedle stamp, using it will improve the serum’s penetration for better results. The needle length is 0.25mm and does not require anesthetic to administer. For best results, it’s recommended to use it twice weekly.

For specialised scalp problems

Bellasonic Hair Loss Treatment

As we all know, most hair problems stem from the scalp and if you suffer from dandruff, there is a potential for hair follicles to be clogged, affecting the overall health of your hair.

The Bellasonic Loss Hair Treatment uses a handheld device that emits ultrasonic technology with a combination of high-frequency (HF) ultrasound (Bellasonos) and low-frequency (LF) ultrasound (Bellapact). This produces microscopic cavitation bubbles where they will either oscillate with the pressure wave, or immediately collapse, creating channels where active ingredients are able to penetrate deeper into the scalp to treat the root problems of dandruff — at depths where topical treatments like anti-dandruff shampoos and serums are unable to reach.

The device is also able to stimulate blood flow to the scalp, which can help nourish hair follicles and encourage healthy hair growth. It can be used on all hair types and is designed to be gentle and non-irritating.

For treating visible hair loss and hair thinning

Laser Hair Rejuvenation

Fractionated Thulium Laser (FTL) has shown some promise in promoting hair growth, by improving blood flow and provides essential nutrients to hair follicles. By doing so, FTL can induce the hair follicles to enter the anagen phase, where hair actively grows, leading to thicker and more voluminous hair growth.

In a clinical study, researchers evaluated the effectiveness of FTL in promoting hair growth in both men and women suffering from pattern hair loss. The study showed that patients who received FTL treatment experienced an increase in hair density and thickness compared to the control group.

This treatment is suitable for those suffering from early stages of hair loss and has no downtime.

Regenera Activa AMT Treatment

Don’t let the name scare you. The treatment is actually a minimally invasive procedure that encourages hair growth. Regenera Activa AMT Treatment is a cutting-edge hair restoration technique that uses autologous micrografts obtained from the patient’s own hair follicles to stimulate hair growth. The procedure involves extracting a small sample of tissue from the patient’s scalp, processing it using a special device to obtain micrografts, and then injecting them back into the patient’s scalp. These micrografts contain growth factors, stem cells, and other regenerative cells that help to rejuvenate hair follicles, promoting the growth of new and thicker hair. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed in about 30 to 45 minutes, with minimal downtime and minimal scarring. The result is natural-looking hair growth that can be visible in one session.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant is a hair restoration technique that is growing in popularity due to its effectiveness, natural-looking results, and minimally invasive nature. FUE involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area (usually the back of the scalp) using a specialised punch-like device. The extracted hair follicles are then transplanted to the recipient area, where hair growth is desired. The tiny wounds created by the extraction process heal on their own, without the need for stitches, resulting in minimal scarring.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and patients can return to their daily routine within a few days of the procedure. The results of FUE are permanent and natural-looking, as the transplanted hair is harvested from the patient’s own head, meaning that it will grow and respond to natural changes in hormones and ageing.

FUE is ideal for both male and female patients who suffer from pattern hair loss but it’s ideal to have their hair short, as it allows for precision and flexibility in the transplant process. FUE is a highly successful procedure, providing a long-term solution for hair loss.
