Our in-house Trichologists have extensive formal training under UK-based specialists, as well as regional consulting experience. With part of our Trichologist team being official International Affiliates (UK) with the Institute of Trichologists (IOT), Svenson Hair is confident in meeting your hair and scalp needs.
Consulting an experienced and certified Trichologist for a fast and precise diagnosis is key to approaching hair and scalp treatment. A trained Trichologist will be able to diagnose the root cause of thinning hair or scalp condition accurately, thereafter recommending appropriate treatment and care.
Our Group Chief trichologist, KIM FONG is an International Affiliate (UK) with the Institute of Trichologist with over 20 years of experience in treating hair and scalp issues. She has been consulting extensively all across the South-east Asian region, providing reliable and effective advice for clients in their hair growth journey. Kim is a strong advocate of trichological intervention for hair and scalp concerns. She believes that people with hair loss issues should seek out trichologists for a faster, more accurate diagnosis instead of seeking general practitioners.
Sharing more on the common misconception of visiting a doctor instead of a trichologist, Kim recalled her most memorable case: “My youngest client was a 10-year-old boy who was drastically losing patches of hair. He was brought to us after doctors found him to be in the pink of health, and suggested a trichologist instead to find out the cause of his hair fall.
“After evaluating his personal history, lifestyle, genetic and environmental factors, we found that his hair loss was due to trichotillomania – a condition where patients pull their own hair, unknowingly or not, during stressful or emotional periods. We were able to stop the condition from progressing further with the correct diagnosis, as well as stimulating hair regrowth via a customised treatment plan of Svenson’s breakthrough technology and latest formulations. This was memorable as we were able to help his parents understand his condition better and seek appropriate help.”
“His parents soon realised that the patient’s older brother was also displaying similar symptoms. With the discovery, they were able to arrange for help, and with a short treatment program from Svenson, he had a full recovery like his younger brother.”
Echoing the same sentiments is Trichologist
EMILY LAI, who strongly advocates finding the root cause and appropriate treatment needed by consulting a certified Trichologist. Emily has more than 10 years of Trichologist experience, providing treatment advice for hair loss and scalp disorders. Her core belief for hair and scalp care is that time is of the essence in order to reverse or stop the situation, and that modern technology and science can help hair and scalp woes.
“I’ve a 38 year-old female client who experienced very severe hair loss each time she gave birth. Her thinning hair situation was quite serious as her scalp was showing quite obviously.
“This client approached us for help after her third child, when her hair was really sparse. Thankfully, with dedication and science, Svenson managed to help her regain 90% of her hair growth within 6 months - a very fast and promising result. What made it a fulfilling was that the client did not resign her hair woes to fate by dismissing it as postnatal hair fall, and managed to regain her confidence by approaching the right help.”
A Svenson Trichologist with a decade of experience under her belt, LYNN LIU recalls a case under her care - a 48 year old woman who thought she was suffering from
the usual Female Pattern Hair Loss.
“After a thorough consultation covering all bases such as her lifestyle choices, nutrition and an in-depth hair analysis, a proper diagnosis on her current hair situation was unveiled: Telogen Effluvium caused by menopause and severe depression,” Lynn recounted, “ After 4 months of our recommended treatment programme, we are very proud to say that her condition improved drastically. It is all due to quick action from the client herself in getting an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.”
Helping her clients regain their confidence through their hair growth journey is something Lynn enjoys immensely about in her work. Citing hair as an integral part of one’s life, she is passionate about raising awareness of the proper care and attention one should give their scalp as it always tends to be overlooked.
