Want a healthier scalp and more luscious locks? I experienced my first professional hair loss treatment, and walked away with a refreshed scalp and game-changing hair care tips.
As a twenty-something, the issue of hair loss had never crossed my mind. In fact, I’ve always shrugged off the occasional clumps in my hairbrush or shower drain as the norm. But as I’m crossing my mid-20s, I’m noticing subtle thinning in my hair, especially around the crown. So when Svenson Singapore invited us to experience its non-invasive hair loss treatment, I couldn’t pass up the chance.
Hailing from London with more than 60 years of history, Svenson’s team of trichologists offer deep expertise in addressing hair and scalp concerns – some of them being international affiliates of The Institute of Trichologists, a professional trichology association! Backed by clinical research and cutting-edge technology, I was curious to try its hair treatments to see if they made a difference. Here’s the rundown of my first scalp and hair loss treatment at Svenson’s Orchard Road outlet:
Uncovering the root of the problem
After a quick registration, I was warmly greeted by Svenson’s group chief trichologist, Kim Fong, who delved into the fundamentals of hair loss and scalp issues. From entrenched lifestyle habits to nutrition and external stresses, boy, there are many factors that contribute to hair loss. Although I’m not grappling with severe hair loss (yet), Kim assured me that prevention is far better than cure.
After assessing my health, medical history, stress levels and lifestyle habits, it was time for the hair and scalp analysis. Honest thoughts? It’s pretty humbling to examine my scalp on such a microscopic level – my hair was sparser than I thought!
The analysis covered five aspects: hair loss, scalp condition density, dead skin cells, sensitivity and thickness. To my surprise, hair thickness emerged as my primary concern, with visibly thinner and weaker strands. Clogged follicles were also notable, (no) thanks to an accumulation of dead skin cells. Armed with this insight, Kim crafted my treatment plan: a deep scalp cleanse to remove build-up, followed by the Filler Advanced II treatment paired with the DEP infusion system, to rejuvenate hair roots and stimulate cell regeneration.
Hair and scalp revival starts now!
To start with a clean canvas, I had a good ol’ hair wash and deep scalp cleanse. Seeing the murky water and floating dead skin cells was eye-opening to say the least – yikes!
Finally, I was ready for the Filler Advanced II treatment. Said to be the latest and most effective non-invasive in permeability technology, the Filler Advanced II formula features proprietary SP1-Technology and BiCelphin Technology. This formula ensures peptides for hair growth can penetrate the deepest layers of the scalp, nourishing hair roots and boosting cell regeneration. It helps extend hair lifespan and strengthen roots for better hair growth.
This was paired with the DEP infusion system – an FDA-approved non-invasive technology that enhances serum absorption by 10 times, while stimulating scalp microcirculation. Unlike invasive treatments, the DEP system safely increases skin permeability, delivering serum directly into hair follicles and roots without damaging scalp tissue or altering serum ingredients.
Throughout the session, I only felt slight pressure and vibrations, without any discomfort. It was almost as relaxing as getting a head massage. And the best part of a non-invasive treatment? No downtime at all!
Post-treatment moment of truth
Following a quick blow dry, I underwent a second scalp scan. Even after just one session, I noticed a significant difference. My scalp felt refreshed, plus I had visibly fewer dead skin cells and clogged follicles.
If hair loss is your concern, the Filler Advanced II programme is said to give fuller hair in as little as 12 weeks. While results may vary from person to person, Svenson promises a full refund if tangible results aren’t achieved (T&Cs apply).
For optimal results, Kim passed me Svenson’s 28-day bespoke hair growth kit, tailored to my hair and scalp condition. I was recommended the foundation care kit that’s meant to tackle early stages of thinning hair. The kit consists of thickening shampoo, thickening serum and recharge lotion, alongside four Power Peptides Release Ampoules for fuller hair and a healthier scalp. The shampoo had a refreshing menthol scent and cooling sensation, while the other products were easy to apply, seamlessly fitting into my shower routine.
Armed with these hair care tips and tools, I’m stoked to elevate my haircare routine in the upcoming weeks – it’s time to give my scalp and tresses the TLC they deserve!
