TECHNOLOGY OF HAIR GROWTH
THE NOTICEABLE EFFECTS OF REVITALISING HAIR GROWTH THROUGH PLASMA AND ULTRASOUND
The healthier the hair follicle, the stronger your hair will grow. Svenson’s brand-new Plasonic Active Hair Technology provides both plasma transmission and ultrasound technology, a symbiotic system to rejuvenate hair follicles.

Hair Care Tips
What to look for when selecting a reliable hair care centre
There are many hair centres in the market. Here we suggest some tips on what to look out for to ensure your hair and scalp is in professional hands.
EXPERTISE OF STAFF
Be sure to find out more about the experience and background of the Trichologist or consultant you’re speaking with at the centre. Long experience would come in very handy in assessing hair growth issues and progress. Look for the certifications the team has such as membership at The Institute of Trichologists (UK) or The Asian Society of Trichologist to ensure you’ll get expert analysis and advice. Equipment is just as important. Svenson is constantly enhancing its technology and formulations to ensure customers get the best the industry has to offer for hair and scalp care.
QUANTIFYING TOOLS TO DIAGNOSE AND MONITOR PROGRESS
Thorough diagnostic data and monitoring equipment is vital to evaluating the treatment progress so as to carry out treatment adjustments for optimal results. Svenson uses IDHA – a scalp assessment tool with quantifiable data such as thickness of hair shaft, number of strands per follicular unit and more to diagnose and monitor progress.
Each staff member in a centre has a role to play. Each centre should include therapists with service excellence to ensure customers get the top-rate treatment they expect. You should expect ready access to qualified consultants and trichologists, particularly at the diagnosis and treatment evaluation stages. All members of the hair centre should work synergistically to ensure a customer experiences the expertise of each role, from customer service excellence to interaction with technical expertise upon treatment.
WORD OF MOUTH
The best form of recommendation is always word of mouth. Be sure to ask around friends or colleagues about the centre you’d like to visit. Don’t just take their words as gold; evaluate their feedback with your own experience when visiting the centre. Remember, what may work for others may not work for you. It’s always best to prepare any questions to be clarified, and ask them yourself at point of contact.

Can Sun Screen Adversely Contribute to a Receding Hairline?
Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) is the progressive loss of hair on the scalp near the forehead – the hairline. FFA diagnostic knowledge has increased dramatically worldwide, and is now suggesting a high correlation between FFA and absorbed facial products. A recent study revealed that 88% of subjects who reported more frequent use of sunscreen. This discovery is further exacerbated with the rise of a nanoparticle-sized formula for further absorption. Common chemical sunscreen ingredients have also been found to be easily absorbed into the skin. Here are some tips to prevent a receding hairline, while caring for your skin:
USE A PHYSICAL AND NATURAL SUNSCREEN
There are two types of sun protection products for topical use – Chemical and Physical. The former is a chemical formulation of key ingredients which penetrate the skin to absorb UVA rays to prevent skin damage, whereas physical sunscreens are formulated to physically block and reflect harmful UV rays by sitting atop the skin. The FDA only recognises two key ingredients as generally safe and effective for sun filter use – zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
CLEANSE THOROUGHLY WITH THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
Be sure to not neglect your hairline when shampooing as it is often overlooked. Especially after a hot, sweaty day, shampooing at least once a day is recommended to ensure all sebum and dead cell build-up on the scalp surface is cleansed. Try Svenson’s Balance Sebum Control Shampoo – featuring a proprietary Ayurvedica mix and Tiolisina Complex to effectively cleanse your scalp of stubborn build-up and excess sebum.
