MEET THE REGIONAL TEAM OF TRICHOLOGISTS FROM SVENSON — THE LEADING TRICHOLOGIST CENTRE FOR CLINICALLY-PROVEN HAIR LOSS MANAGEMENT
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.
Meet our first Trichologist Sandy, with over 25 years of experience as a qualified Trichologist in treating various hair and scalp issues. Within few years of practice and experience, Sandy quickly picked up an important know-how that hormonal and medication could cause diffused but visible hair loss.
She finds that being able to provide hope for her clients after having assessed their problems and offering the tools to help them is a form of gift. Sandy basically loves being able to offer trichology services and solving her client’s hair and scalp woes.
"I had a client who was having severe hair loss, and she was waiting it out for her hair to grow back naturally. When she realised this wasn’t happening, she came to me. Her hair was so thin, from various contributing factors such as stress, poor nutrition and general health issues. I started her with the appropriate treatments to speedily improve her condition, followed by some home care products. In turn of time, her hair length and volume finally returned and she was then put under basic maintenance programme", Sandy says.
From such experiences and many more, Sandy believes that our hair is our crowning glory, the one accessory we wear every day. She cares very deeply that her clients must look their best, for that contributes to well-being and confidence in life.
Also introducing our Trichologist Rossanna Fernando, who equally loves to help people with hair and scalp problems to make them feel great again with a head full of hair. With over 11 years of experience, she has seen hundreds of clients with mild to severe scalp problems resulting in hair loss.
Sharing similar sentiments with Trichologist Sandy, Rossanna believes that our hair is our crowning glory, for when we meet someone, the first thing someone sees would be our face and hair. The two irreplaceable things for humans would be our hair and teeth. Just as how a teeth couldn’t grow back after being pulled out, once hair follicles have collapsed and closed up, there will be no growing back of new hair. Rossanna often instils in her clients that a clean healthy scalp equals to healthy beautiful tresses. One’s hair is his or her body’s barometer; what one does to his or her body affects their hair directly.
"My turning point came when I met my first Alopecia Areata client, Joey, who was only 11 years old. She was brought in with six bald spots by her parents. After 8 months of seeing a dermatologist who had injected steroids into the bald spots and receiving no positive results, they finally brought her to see me. Many don’t understand how Alopecia Areata works – it is an auto immune condition where a group of white blood cells attack some other cells in the hair, causing the baldness at certain spots. This can be triggered by trauma or viral infection, but mostly by stress. After speaking to Joey and discovering what her problem was, which turned out to be her school teachers picking on her and her nightmarish school experience, we were able to resolve her hair woes. After evaluating and recommending treatments to treat her scalp, we were able to treat Joey and help her regain her hair after 1 year of Svenson’s hair Treatments", says Rossanna.
Rossanna follows one strong principle in her job. She believes the job is all about building continuing relationships and gaining her clients’ trust. People are surrendering their heads in her hands, so it will never been a touch-and-go affair.
Echoing the same sentiments as our first two Trichologists is Trichologist Angie. With over 23 years of experience, Angie is able to diagnose and provide treatments with significant results in a matter of no time, regardless of what factors have led to hair fall amongst her clients.
Being a Trichologist has always allowed Angie to work closely with new cutting edge technology and solutions, as well as state-of-the-art equipment for hair fall and scalp treatments.
She finds pleasure in seeing her clients walk out of the centre happily with a healthy scalp and head full of hair.
