Hair is a precious gift for many people, but many hairline problems, patchy hair, and thin hair in this modern world. This condition is called hair loss. According to statistics, 75% of men and 25% of women have significant hair loss. The effects of hair loss are multifaceted, but most patients lose their confidence and charm.
Although hair loss is not life-threatening, hair loss can negatively affect your mental state and physical characteristics.
This article provided by the Hairsure clinic gives information about How a Hair Transplant specialist treats hair loss in women and men.
What is the definition of hair loss in men and women today?
Human hair follows a growth cycle, which consists of three stages. During these stages, the hair grows, rests, and then falls off. This cycle continues every year. Generally speaking, genes determine the density, type, thickness, volume, and length of hair. Naturally, it is estimated that a person loses less than 100 hairs a day. Any amount higher than this indicates hair loss. The rate of hair loss may increase due to many factors.
- Male hair loss: Almost 40% of men suffer from this problem. It affects the upper or front part of the scalp, mainly reducing the scalp’s vertex hairline. It can leave some bangs on the sides and at the back of your head, or you can gradually go completely bald. This is often called male-pattern or androgenic alopecia.
- Female hair loss: Unlike in males, the female pattern may vary depending on the underlying cause. Some people may have hair fall suddenly, while others may experience severe thinning. If more hair follicles are in the resting stage, it slows down the germination of newer hair follicles, leading to more hair loss.
Hair loss assessment and clinical evaluation
In some cases, a person may need a physical examination or additional diagnostic methods to determine the underlying type of hair loss. Clinical diagnosis includes:-:
- Medical history
- Physical examination
- Hair analysis test, “Norwood Scale”,
- Photographic assessment
- Scalp biopsy
Hair loss treatment:
A Hair Transplant specialist considers various hair loss treatments to treat hair loss in women and men. Generally, doctors recommend appropriate hair loss treatments based on the degree of hair loss.
Medications: There are two hair loss drugs in the market that have been shown to slow down or even reverse hair loss in some cases. Finasteride (for male) and Minoxidil (for both male and female). Generally, Finasteride and Minoxidil are instant hair loss drugs in India and provide reliable results. These can be taken orally or applied to the scalp to combat hair loss. Or, you can make an appointment with a doctor online at Hairsure Clinic to learn about other medical options for hair loss.
Laser hair treatment: Painless, safe and effective Laser hair treatment (LHT) or low-intensity laser treatment is a scientific, non-surgical method to treat hair loss, thinning hair and scalp problems. The effectiveness and safety of LHT have been verified globally for more than 30 years. In terms of non-surgical cosmetic treatment, LHT is considered one of the best treatments for hair loss.
LHT uses a device containing 160 weak light therapy lasers to emit light energy from approximately 160 laser diodes that cover the head. LHT works on the principle that laser light stimulates cell metabolism and helps damaged cells to repair themselves.
Microneedles or Mesorollers: Microneedles or Mesorollers have revolutionized hair care. Considering the individual’s natural healing mechanism, mesotherapy is closely related to the body’s natural growth. Doctors use rollers (1 mm in length) with microneedles. It gave us great results in the case of hair loss.
The working principle of microneedles is to cause micro-injuries, allowing your body to regenerate the skin to repair itself, but in some cases, it does not. It has the same principle as Oriental Acupuncture. As we all know, blood circulation can stimulate hair growth by increasing the nutrient supply to the hair follicles. It is well known that increasing vasodilation lowers DHT level because it lowers DHT in hair papillae. This anti-hair loss treatment is performed without any anaesthesia and only causes mild discomfort.
Mesotherapy: Mesotherapy for hair loss is a non-surgical treatment for hair loss. It is a cosmetic procedure in which several small doses of drugs, vitamins, growth factors and hair growth solutions are injected into the mesoderm of the scalp. The goal of thinning hair mesotherapy is to improve the scalp’s microcirculation, provide nutrients and stimulate hair growth. It can be used in combination with PRP or derma rollers to treat hair loss. The best result can be seen with multiple sessions at weekly intervals. The cost of Mesotherapy hair treatment depends on the active ingredients used in these injections.
PRP platelet-rich plasma therapy
Mesotherapy and PRP are performed by injection, but PRP requires a doctor to draw blood from the patient. The growth factors in the blood are injected back to the scalp to promote hair growth. PRP is not as scary as it sounds. It is a treatment that injects plasma from your blood into the treatment area to stimulate cell growth. In addition to rejuvenating the skin, it can also treat sports injuries and stimulate hair growth on the scalp and strengthen hair follicles. Like many non-surgical treatments, PRP does not regenerate completely shed hair, but it can stimulate the growth of thinned areas.
Hair transplant is a surgical method to treat hair loss, removing tiny hair follicles and implanting them. During the operation, the surgeon will use a scalpel, micro punch or scalpel blade to extract the hair follicle from the donor area. Hair transplantation is of two types they are:
FUT-Follicular Unit Transplantation: It is also known as “strip procedure”. This is the most popular transplant procedure performed in India. It is considered the gold standard in comparison with all other hair transplant procedures. In this process, a piece of the strip is removed from the back of the head, leaving a linear scar that can easily hide under the hair. Technicians divide the strips into hair follicle unit grafts (hair roots) and then implant these grafts into thin, bald areas where they root and grow new hair. FUT advantages:
- The possibility of obtaining the maximum number of grafts
- FUT can solve the maximum degree of baldness
- Permanent results
FUE-Follicular Unit extraction: It is also known as the “One-to-One procedure”. When the strip cannot be removed from the scalp, FUE surgery can be used for people requiring 1,500 grafts or fewer. Instead of bringing a hair strip of skin, grafts are punched one at a time, leaving small round holes in the back of the head, which will heal into small round scars. The grafts are then replanted in the thin or bald areas where they will root and grow. FUE advantages:
- Almost invisible scars
- Minimal pain after surgery
- Reduce downtime
- Ensure natural hairline
- Reduce the risk of complications
