With a number of successful research projects now been conducted, the Center has enhanced its research facilities manifold with the introduction of advanced machines

  • The Hair Trichometry Test – The Trichometry Test allows to track down information about patient’s hair growth by calculating an approximate overall average hair density, diameter, growth and shedding rates, based on diagnostic data available for a patient. This includes a comparison with the statistically established norms for a healthy individual, based on sex, age and racial variation for hair average criteria.
  • The Sebumeter: The Sebumeter is another introduction that helps in the detection of the amount of sebum secreted by your skin. This helps create customized packages for skin. The TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss) machine measures the water content and evaluates the moisture of the skin.
  • The Dandruff Meter – The Dandruff Meter measures the extent of dandruff accumulated on scalp and what kind of shampoos will help eliminate it.
  • The Gloss Meter -The Gloss Meter helps in the measurement of gloss which is essential in the efficacy testing of skin care, hair care and decorative cosmetics.

Each of these technologically advanced machines contributes to enhancing the organization’s capacity for hair and skin product testing as well.

Speaking on the 4th year anniversary and the launch of these machines, Dr. Premalatha V, Dermatosurgeon, Hairline International says, “The research center has been a strong supporting factor to the work that we do here at Hairline International. From being able to identify underlying causes of ailments to providing person-specific products in treatment and therapy, the research center has been a huge benefit. The latest machines that we now have will only help us enhance our efficiency”.

Speaking on the advanced technology that supports the work done at the research institute, Dr. Bani Anand, Founder and Managing Director, Hairline International says, “We have introduced these machines to enhance the quality of research conducted and to create a base of information that is reliable and which helps in understanding underlying causes of hair and skin ailments, allowing for a change in lifestyle.

Hairline International Hair and Skin Research Center is well staffed with 8 clinicians and 4 non-medical staff as a support team. A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) committee is in place to ensure that all relevant protocols are formulated and implemented. Studies are conducted by clinicians and record maintenance is handled by an independent department that also acts as a liaison between the 7 centers of Hairline International – to collect information and data.

A few successful research conducted by Hairline International Hair and Skin Research Center are –

  • In a study conducted among the residents of RT Nagar, it was revealed that underground water had higher zinc levels in it. The intake of water with higher metal levels was found to be the cause of excessive hair loss noticed in the residents of the area.
  • In a 6-month study conducted by the Hairline Research Centre on 100 patients of hair loss, it was concluded from an observation of eating habits that non-vegetarianism may be one of the causes for baldness.
  • In a study it was found that 80% of the hair fall patients visiting the clinic were PFOA positive. This study highlighted the effects of Teflon that contains Perflurootanic Acid (PFOA), on hair fall.

Kanakapura road: the new destination

Situated in the southern belt of Bangalore, Kanakapura road is witnessing a renewed thrust in demand for upcoming projects and residences, with developments on a massive scale starting to make their presence even before the ongoing work on the metro rail began. What is prompting this sudden surge?

The metro offers the element of good connectivity to the CBD along with the presence of the NICE road, interlinking Hosur and Electronic city on one side and Mysore road on the other. Kanakapura road has thus become a nodal point connecting Electronic City, Silk Board, and outer ring road; where most of the software firms are. This connectivity promotes easy access to each of the respective junctures especially with the metro rail coming in, which permits equal speed of transit to the rest of the city.

These transport factors, combined with the availability of land at relatively affordable rates, and the serene environment in this area, has contributed to making Kanakapura road very attractive, and is precisely the reason why the area is influencing the kind of growth spurt in activity that is happening today.

About two decades back, there was very little commercial activity in this region, due to its lack of connectivity to the city, and especially due to the lack of industrial activity and the IT sector which dominates most of the other predominant regions in Bangalore. Kanakapura road was then home to a number of farmhouses, rehabilitation centres, not to mention the massive Art of Living ashram which has had its presence since the early eighties.

Because of the availability of land in the area and the lush greenery, people would build weekend getaway homes, thus molding Kanakapura road into an area where people chose to sit back and relax, be with nature and get in touch with their spiritual side. Now, with other popular areas of Bangalore becoming too crowded and expensive, and Kanakapura road offering quick and efficient public transport, and with the recent development of the metro, it has become a natural progression to move away from an unaffordable CDB to areas that are better priced and offer better living conditions.

The presence of a high water table and availability of land parcels also triggered growth on this road, with the NICE road also contributing as a redeemer for all commutability factors. The absence of industries has only made the area more attractive, as the serene green surroundings are left preserved making it more habitable. Above all these factors, the emergence of the metro rail has stepped up the pace of growth. Property prices in Kanakapura road will soon witness an increase in rates close to 15 to 20 per cent over the next two years.

The traditional fabric of the area also compliments the rest of South Bangalore, triggering demand. One of the major attractions of the south is that some of the leading colleges and schools are situated in this region. It is also home to some of the best hospitals and medical care. The entertainment segment is also making a mark in this region, with some of the best traditional restaurants, making it attractive especially for the traditional residents of the city.

There are however concerns about this sudden influx of activity in Kanakapura road, and the surrounding areas of south Bangalore causing a strain on existing infrastructure. Whitefield witnessed similar issues in infrastructure after the massive developments that happened in its region. Coupled with this, the metro lines do not run through all the roads of South Bangalore which means the last mile connectivity is not effectively addressed.

This calls for active intervention on the part of the government where infrastructure concerns such as water, sewage, electricity are effectively addressed and the issue of last mile connectivity for the metro is also solved so that Kanakapura road does not face the same strains that Whitefield currently faces. Development and progress cannot be stopped but development needs to happen in a systematic planned manner so that past mistakes of other areas are not repeated.




Now, a Robot Will Assist a Surgeon in Hair Transplant at Hairline International

Bangalore, 03rd, August 2017: Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic has launched a novel means of  Hair Transplant at their clinic. Known as the Human Assisted Rapid Robotic Hair Transplant (HARRTS),  now a Robot will maximize hair transplant results manifold when compared to conventional methods of FUT, FUE and the combination technique. It also reduces the time frame in which a transplant takes place.

Explaining the functioning of the Robotic Hair Transplant system, ‘Dr. Dinesh G Gowda, Dermatosurgeon, Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic says, “While the dermatosurgeon is the one who inputs required fields in terms of depth for extraction and implantation, number of follicles to be extracted as well as the area of implantation, it is the robot that accurately carries out the entire procedure’.

“The Robot It consists of a hand piece that is uniquely designed for speed, safety and accuracy. Placed close to the hand piece is the Cold Bio-Fluid Storage canister which ensures that the grafts have good survival rate in the cold storage safety punch. Each of the punches are uniquely designed for accurate depth control and the silicone covering over the step prevents rotational skin abrasion that is common. The implanter is the first of its kind in the world that implants grafts with and without a slit creation thereby avoiding any unnecessary incisions into the skin, oozing or the flooding of grafts, pop outs etc ensuring that the implantation time is reduced by half when compared to other methods of transplant”, adds Dr. Gowda.

Speaking on introducing Robotic Hair Transplant at Hairline International, Dr. Bani Anand, Founder and Managing Director, Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic says, “We have seen that patients want procedures that are quick, minimally painful and non invasive which yield the best results. Robotic Hair Transplant ensures high levels of accuracy and results. In fact, considering the reduced number of personnel required to complete the procedure, the patient is much more at ease as well. The system also comes with an integrated cloud data management system which makes programing of depth for extraction and implantation easy and accurate”.

Robotic Hair Transplant ensures that the infection rate and bleeding is minimal as the procedure is extremely accurate in terms of depth and breadth of extraction or implantation of the hair. In fact, depth control can be pre-fixed using a calibrated computerized approach. The procedure ensures that there is minimal exposure of hair follicles to an external environment reducing dessication and depth the follicles and thus enhancing the results of a hair transplant.





Escape the Ordinary with a Spunky and Sassy Scoot!

ü  Fly to Singapore in INR 5,599 one way

ü  Single brand and operating licence for Scoot and Tigerair

ü  5 new destinations to be added

ü  New uniform for Scootees and new brand tagline

Bengaluru – Nine months after Scoot and Tigerair announced their intention to pursue a single brand and operating licence under the enhanced Scoot brand, the airline industry today bade farewell to Tigerair Singapore as its last flight departed Singapore for Tiruchirappalli at 2305 on 24 July.  From today, all previous Tigerair flights will be operated under the Scoot brand and Scoot flights will operate under the TR flight designator code. This marks the completion of the Scoot-Tigerair integration process that began last May when the airlines were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.

These include Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, Tiruchirappalli and Lucknow which will now operate under the single brand name – Scoot from 25 July 2017.

 Scoot CEO Mr Lee Lik Hsin said, “As we come to the end of Tigerair’s journey, we open up a brand new chapter for Scoot. Building on what Tigerair and the old Scoot had achieved since their respective inceptions, we are stronger than we have ever been before, and consequently in an even better position to offer our guests more choice, connectivity and value. The enhanced Scoot that we are introducing today is spunky and sassy, and promises to create more travel opportunities for our guests.”

 To celebrate the merger to the single Scoot brand, special one-way promotional fares from Bengaluru will start from as low as INR 5,599 to Singapore, INR 9,799 to Bali, INR 10,499 to Hong Kong, INR 12,499 to Melbourne/Sydney among others. Additional 10% discounts are also available through promotional codes for a booking period from 25 July to 6 Aug 2017.

 “Scoot was very well received after the launch of our first three destinations in India last year, the response was remarkable. We hope to create the same impact in Bengaluru, Tiruchirappalli, Kochi, Lucknow and Hyderabad by bringing great prices without compromising on the safety and comfort of the passengers. When flying with a young and passionate airline like Scoot, our guests can expect a safe, reliable and contemporary travel experience with a unique attitude – Scootitude.” saidBharath Mahadevan, Country Head, India, Scoot.

 Coupled with the addition of the previous Tigerair network, the five new services will bring Scoot’s total destination count to 65across 18 countries.

 New Uniform

Beyond new destinations, Scoot’s crew members, affectionately named Scootees, will be outfitted with new uniform designs bearing a refreshing, yet distinctively Scoot look.  The new uniform for female crew members cuts a flattering silhouette with its asymmetric dress design and higher waistline, while that for male crew members features sharper angles for the yellow highlights on the polo shirts.

 Both male and female crew uniforms also feature fun details, such as black buttons sewn on with yellow thread to provide a subtle feature for the male crew uniforms, and thicker fabric for the Scootees to stay warm during cabin service. The new uniforms represent a fresh start for crew of both airlines, while Scoot’s signature black and yellow colour combination have been retained, carrying on the spirit of fun and spontaneity of the Scoot brand.

Escape the Ordinary

In conjunction with the brand enhancement, Scoot has also changed its Get Outta Here! tagline and adopted a new slogan,Escape the Ordinary.

 “Scoot’s new tagline, Escape the Ordinary, is reflective of our growth as an airline brand,” said Mr Lee. “It is more relevant to the global market now that our network has grown as it is aspirational to our inner wanderlust, and inspires us to travel and explore the world.”

 Scoot also rolled out its first A320 aircraft, previously operated by Tigerair and repainted with the Scoot livery, named “Conscious Coupling” in commemoration of the integration between Scoot and Tigerair. The current Tigerair fleet will be progressively repainted and the complete livery change is targeted to be by mid-2018.
