Fibroblast Stem Cell therapy - the most effective Hair Loss treatmentyet

The era of cell regeneration and cellular therapies continue to amaze me.

Hair loss, is, without a doubt, one of life's greatest concerns for both men and women. I personally have been struggling with it for as long as I can remember. Many, regardless of social, financial or educational background suffer from it. That's the reason why, nowadays the market is full of products which have the purpose of preventing hair loss. Out of these products, some have proven more efficient then others while others have showed no effect at all. Farther more the vast majority has no scientific research.

Over the years several products and methods as solutions to hair loss or thinning hair has come about. These include scalp Mesotherapy (mesopecia), growth factor dermal stamping, PRP injections, micro needling hair vitamins, low level laser light therapy (LLLT) , Biofibre hair prosthesis, and even " hair fillers". These work to some extent but require several treatment session and regular maintenance.

Stem cells has always been known as the ultimate solution for repair and regeneration of new cells and it is natural that this should be applied to the scalp area for hair growth.
But where can we get the stem cells from?  as autologous stem cells can only be derived from bone marrow ( require bonemarrow aspiration) , dental pulp, fat ( requiring lipo aspiration) or blood ( very little) or now skin. And extracting and processing theses tissues for stem cells require either invasive procedures or a lab service which are expensive.

Recently, a new device called Regenericon from Italy which is specially designed for the clinical applications of regenerative procedures using autologous ( your own) micro grafts, is brought into our practice.
By extracting patient's own tissue, namely skin from scalp area, we can now harvest 60-80,000 progenitor cells  (stem cells) in just 30 min procedure. The skin and hair follicle is the tissue that has the greatest concentration of progenitor cells in the human body due to it's plasticity, growth factor and regeneration properties. Let's not forget the skin is reverted in 21days!


This is definitely a turning point in the the treatment of hair loss. These cells have the capability to repair and even regenerate. That's why the best areas that came to mind upon discovering these cells, was to use them in areas that need to regenerate, as in the scalp with lessening hAir density. 

So healthy men and women, with mild to moderate hair loss, that wish to improve their appearance, without any downtime, may now go for this state of the art hair regeneration therapy. 

How the treatment works :
1. Evaluation of degree of hair loss based on Hamilton classification (men) or Ludwig scale ( women). Best candidates are below or upto stage 3 for Hamilton and below or at Stage 2 of Ludwig.

2. Ensure no medical contrIndication and scalp is in healthy state.
3. Micro grafts taken from behind the ear under local anesthesia




4. Micrografts are processed using the Regenericon device to get serum containing progenitor stem cells 
5. The cell enriched serum is then injected into the areas where hair loss is ( no scarring)
6. Procedure is over in 30min. There is no need for repeat unless desired in 15 months.

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to :
1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats
2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to
3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) .
With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at 62…

Laser Vagina Rejuvenation

Our V2LR laser handpiece is finally here. Had a revision session with Prof Zerbinatti in the clinic on 3rd Jan. Imagine, for those of us who wish to "rejuvenate" ourselves can do so now with ease and painlessly. Just make an appointment with the clinic, come in 30min earlier so a topical numbing cream can be applied, and have the procedure conducted and completed in 1/2 hr,tops. What will you get ? Well, internally the lasering will "puff"up the mucosa of the vaginal wall by collagen remodeling, as well as improve sensations. Externally the procedure can lighten the skin color, increase sensitivity as well tighten surrounding area. ALl these in just 3 sessions! Prof Zerbinatti claims that in his clinic this is currently the most popular procedure among women in their 30s and 40s.


I am very excited about this procedure. I know a lot of women out there do not have any problems, and therefore do not require any surgical LVR but would like to just improve. Like everyhti…

Automated Hair Transplantation

Finally, something to write! After returning from Italy after the V2LR training, I became interested in a new technology for Hair Transplantation called the S.A.F.E.R. techniquee using the French made PUNCH Matic machine. Traditionally, hair transplantion is a very time consuming process taking around 6 to 8 hours of tedious and meticulous work. Because of this, many Drs and Surgeons prefer not to conduct this procedure in their practice. Also the old technique gave only 60-80% follicular survival rate and for someone who is losing his/her hair, losing more doner hair can be unacceptable. I began to like the idea of this new technique when I found out that I do not have to cut a few strips of scalp skin from the back of the head to donate the follicle unit(FU). With the SAFER technique I only vacuum individual hair follicle out without cutting the skin. This makes is very much less invasive and less complications. Survival of the follicular unit is also much higher. I also like the …
