HAIR LOSS TREATMENT

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, refers to the hair loss from the scalp or the entire body. It may be hereditary or may occur due to certain medical conditions, hormonal changes or drugs. It can affect men, women and children. We normally shed 50 to 100 hairs every day, any hair fall more than this is considered to fall under hair loss condition. Our hair is considered our crowning glory, hence, rampant hair loss can affect the patient’s quality of life and self-confidence.

Types of hair loss

Each hair loss is different with a different set of symptoms and causes. At Skinzest Hair Clinic, our expert trichologist in Gurgaon take utmost care in curating the best possible hair loss treatment in Gurgaon for our patients. The first step is to establish the exact reason behind a particular hair loss case.

Causes of alopecia:
  • Iron deficiency or low ferritin
  • Thyroid related hair loss
  • Age related hair loss
  • Drug induced hair loss
  • uncontrolled plucking
  • Stress
  • Traction alopecia -due to braiding, corn rows etc.
Androgenetic alopecia

The most common type of alopecia is androgenetic alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness. In men, typical pattern of hair loss is a receding hairline. The hair at the top of the forehead is lost first, followed by the hair on the crown, leaving a characteristic horseshoe shape around the back and the sides of the head. Androgenetic alopecia in men is inherited. The hair follicles become overly sensitive to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT damages the hair follicles causing the new hairs to gradually become shorter, thinner and lighter in colour. Eventually, the hair follicles become too small and hair production stops completely.
In female-pattern baldness the hair thins around the top of the head at the crown, without affecting the front hairline. The cause of female-pattern baldness is not much understood. Sometimes, menopause is suggested as the underlying cause.

Alopecia areata

Also called autoimmune alopecia,it causes patches of baldness. It can occur at any age, but mostly affects teenagers and young adults aged between 15 and 29. The immune system wrongly attacks the hair follicles resulting in hair loss. It is very common in people with other autoimmune conditions such as diabetes. In most cases the hair can regrow, but in some cases the hair loss can progress until all the hair on the scalp is lost (alopecia totalis) and even complete hair loss from the entire body (alopecia universalis).

Treatments:

A correct diagnosis is important to help pinpoint the exact cause and thus, help design the best possible treatment. Since, each hair loss is different from another, the treatments too varies in for every different case. An experienced dermatologist can help reverse alopecia, if the condition is diagnosed before it progresses to become irreversible.

Following two medicines are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of hair loss:

  • Minoxidil: Minoxidil is an over-the-counter foam or liquid which is used on the scalp to prevent further hair fall. Most patients experience hair regrowth or some reduction in hair loss. This medicine may cause some side effects as unwanted hair growth on the nearby skin of face, scalp irritation and rapid heart rate.

 

  • Finasteride: This medicine is for meant for men and is prescription only. It is meant for oral use. The patients usually experience a decrease in the hair loss and a few may also observe hair regrowth.

 

  • PRP: In this treatment blood of the patient is collected in a vial. This vial is placed in a centrifuge and spun very fast causing the platelet rich plasma to separate from the other blood cells. This platelet rich plasma is injected into, and around, the area on the scalp that needs to be treated. The injected platelets release the growth factors and the pre stem cells which assist in developing more collagen, which in turn can help in hair regrowth

 

  • Hair Transplant Surgeries: Following are the surgical procedures used for treating hair loss:

 

    • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): In FUE hair follicles are extracted from the donor area. The extracted hair follicles are transferred to the recipient area where small incisions are made.

 

    • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): Also known as strip technique, it is used for patients who have a large area of baldness. In this process the donor hair follicle is obtained by taking out a small strip from the back of the head. This strip is divided into grafts that contain 1 or 2 follicles which then are implanted as FUE.
