More hair for life

Did two cases of hair transplantation today. One man and one lady. both had frontal hairline recession, so both had hair transplanted from the back of the head (donor) to the frontal hairline area (recipient). The first patient took us 5 hours to complete and the second took us 4 hrs. Using the Punch Matic SAFER technique I punch out individual follicles called FUE and implant them into the recipient area. A tedious process but it felt very satisfying after all was completed. Imagine , now people can have more hair in areas where there are less or little and even where ere are NO hair! Patches of baldness due to trauma or scarring can be transformed into hair growing areas. What's best is it is for life. Yes, the new transplanted hair is permanent and will continue to grow for the rest of your life! I hope to create more awareness of the availability of this procedure so more people can do it.

Reviewed our 2 new cases today. They are both progressing well. One complaint of itchiness in the donor area ( this is expected when new hair starts to grow out) but otherwise both areas are healing well. Tufts of new hair also seen in the recipient or transplanted area. I decided to also put them under LED (Light Emiting Diode) light which currently is being studied as a way to enhance the regrowth rate. Once the healing has settled, we will also put post transplant patients under the Revage Nuhair Low-Level Laser to farther improve and stimulate hair regrowth. In this way we will be able to give a wholesome approach to our hair transplant patients.

Hydrafacial vs Silkpeel

Our old but very reliable microdermabrasion Diamond crystal peeling machine broke down after many years of high performance. It was one of our highest performing equipment and it had served us well. My dear Diamond MDA I shall miss you. And although I would like to continue our liaison , it does not see possible anymore as there is no longer a distributor in Malaysia. So, I have been going round researching and looking for a new MDA unit to replace our old one. Some here comes the Silk Peel and Hydra Facial.
Silk Peel conducts both dry microdermabrasion using a diamond tipped hand piece which abates and abrade the upper layers of skin. If desired, a "wet microdermabrasion" can also be conducted using the diamond tip hand piece but while the abrasion is going on, solutions containing micronutrients and hydrating agents are infused alongside. This gives for a more effective treatment as delivery is more efficient as products are more penetrate.
Now, the Hydra Facial?
Well, am …

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…

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 …
