Wash Your Hair Properly

Improper Hairwash Affects Result

We strive to get the best possible result for you, taking care of every single step. A transplanted hair needs 7 days to re-establish blood supply. It is very fragile in this 7 days, easily damaged. Improper hair wash will have an adverse effect on the graft survival and final outcome.

Good Hair Wash Is Important in our Aftercare

During his training, our doctor spent a few weeks just learning how to wash hair. All our staff are trained by Dr Ng how to wash hair for the patients.
Our office has 2 shampoo rooms and 2 hair stylists. The next day after hair transplant, we will demonstrate how to do it yourself at home.


Scabs are the tiny bit of skin tissue carried by the transplanted hair. The scabs first appear as red dots over the scalp right after the procedure. Over the next few days the scabs will dry up as brown crust over the recipient sites.
Proper and regular will easily remove scabs. We will teach you how to do it. If left alone, the scalp may look unsifghtly and also become itchy

Prevent hair loss after hair transplant

Objective - Optimize Result

We used to believe that when you have hair transplant, you don't need to take medicine; when you take medicine, you don't need hair transplant. Not anymore! Surgery and medical therapy is no longer mutually exclusive. Adjuvant Therapy is the current trend when surgeons transplant the recipient site, and use FDA-approved medication to improve and maintain the non-transplanted areas.

The use of medication after a hair transplant procedure, whether as topical preparations or as oral drugs, is called Adjuvant Therapy. It can be used as short or long term.

Short Term Adjuvant Therapy

Rational of Use

From our 10 years of experience, growth of the transplanted hair can be stimulated by a hair-growth-promoting agents such as Copper Peptide, and low level laser energy

Tricomin Follicle Spray

We have imported the Tricomin Follicle Spray from USA which contains Copper Nutritional Complex for use after hair transplant.


•   Encourages healthy growth of the transplanted hair follicles
•   Protects transplanted grafts against environmental factors that may cause hair to fall-out more rapidly
•   May help to treat the underlying cause of hair loss
•   Triamino Copper Nutritional Complex powers-up the natural defense process to protect hair from environmental damage
•   Panthenol repairs and nourishes damaged hair
•   Amino acids and minerals build body in the hair to produce a fuller appearance

Who Should Consider using Tricomin Follicle Spray ?

•   We recommend all patients to use for at least 4 months after the procedure
•   Women would find it usefuk to prevent "Shock Loss" - temporary shedding of transplanted as well as existing hair
•   Most use it up to 12 months and experience an early growth of transplanted hair

Low Level Laser Therapy LLLT

•   2 sessions of low level laser therapy using the Sunetics laser Hood is included in your package
•   The first session would be provided the next day after the hairwash
•   Evidences support the use of LLLT after the procedure to promote wound healing and reduce shock loss ( READ MORE )...

Continuous Medical Therapy

Rational of Use

Hair loss due to AGA progresses if left untreated. Further loss of existing hair degrade surgical results over time, so the preservation of hair with adjunctive therapy can play a role in sustaining the cosmetic benefits of surgery.

Topical Minoxidil

Although occipital donor hair does not respond to oral 5α-reductase blockers,their growth can be stimulated by a hair-growth-promoting agents such as minoxidil.

Benefits of Minoxidil

•   Convert resting follicles into active follicles and promote new hair growth
•   Growth of existing hair contributes to good results after just 1 or 2 transplant sessions
•   Slowing down miniaturization of existing hair helps to maintain satisfactory coverage
•   Avoid the need for further sessions to add on density.

Who Should Consider using Minoxidil

•   Those receiving transplants in the whorl area (vertex)
•   Patients with existing fine hair in the recipient area
•   Younger males and women with diffuse thinning to prevent further loss of existing hair
•   Those with strong family history of advance hair loss
•   Those planning hairline transplant but already have thinning crown
•   Those with very limited donor hair

What and How to Use Minoxidil

•   Use 5% Minoxidil topical lotion or foam
•   Apply to donor and recipient sites once daily

Oral 5α-reductase blockers

•   Men should consider using both topical 5% Minoxidil lotion and oral 5α-reductase blockers
•   This is a prescription medication so please consult your physician before use
