Hair Synergy together with The DHI Group, in Athens Greece achieved another first by acquiring the NO TOUCH technique in hair transplant, using the unique CHOI hair implanters.
Bosley’s of USA which is still currently the world’s longest established and renowned industry leader in Modern Hair Restoration, started a series of discussions and visits to acquire Hair Synergy for their objective of establishing their presence in Asia. The acquisition sum was discussed around a 7 figure quantum and unfortunately did not conclude due to bureaucracy. MOH put a restriction on who can do the hair restoration procedure.
Mr. Thomas Tham after many attempts through the media and government channels finally appealed successfully to MTI and MOH to lift the ban forbidding GP’s to perform the medical hair procedure. Health Minister Mr. Khaw Boon Wan revoked the ruling and allow general medical practitioners with sufficient experience and relevant training to perform the hair restoration methods of operation.
In cooperation with 2 medical doctors in KL, Hair Synergy introduced the FUE “no-touch “ technique and received tremendous response.
Mr. Tham was appointed Consultant to the Parkway Shenton group to jumpstart the FUE technology and introduce Hair Transplant services as an additional specialty. Together with their trained doctor and an experienced technician, we successfully launched the FUE technique both in Singapore and Vietnam and were able to further offer eye brows, beards, mustaches, and side burns enhancements for the vanity males.
