Hair Loss Treatment

HAIR LOSS TREATMENT

Hair loss is one of the most common problems of today. Nowadays, even the young are facing hair loss issues leading to low confidence. There are many causes for hair fall and it can depend on the kind of lifestyle led. Hair thinning and baldness is common in males and females.

Hair Thinning Treatment

Hair thinning treatment refers to mild to moderate hair loss. Unlike widespread hair loss, hair thinning doesn’t necessarily cause baldness. However, it gives the appearance of sparse hair on the scalp. Hair thinning happens gradually, which means there is time to pinpoint the causes and figure out the treatment measures. At SOS we have dermatologists to consult and diagnose hair thinning. In males, it starts from the hairline to the back of the scalp, slowly extending the degree of balding.

Baldness Treatment

Baldness, also referred to as alopecia, can arise for a variety of reasons. People of any age group can experience hair loss. Most commonly if it is hereditary hair loss, treatment for baldness may be required. Androgenetic alopecia – which is more commonly known as male pattern baldness begins above both temples and recedes over time to form an M pattern. Hair also tends to thin at the crown partially or leads to complete baldness.

Male-Pattern Baldness

Even men who never “go bald” thin out somewhat over the years. Adolescent boys notice some receding near the temples as their hairline can change from the straight-across boys’ pattern to the more “M-shaped” pattern of growth as found in adult men. This normal development does not mean they are losing hair.

Female-Pattern Baldness

Women lose hair on an inherited (genetic) basis too, but female pattern hair loss tends to happen more in a diffuse pattern, rather than the crown and frontal hairline pattern hair loss. Although some women may notice their hair thinning in their early 20s, the pace of hair loss tends to be gradual, often taking years to become obvious. Hair loss may be due to treatable conditions like anemia and thyroid disease and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). These conditions are diagnosed by blood tests along with physical signs. Although not indicated for female pattern balding, spironolactone (aldactone) has had some success in treating this condition in females.

Signs and symptoms of hair loss treatment may include:

  • Gradual thinning on top of the head is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede from the forehead in a line that resembles the letter M shape. Women typically retain the hairline on the forehead but have a broadening of the partition in their hairline.
  • Circular Circular or patchy bald spots or coin-sized bald spots are found in some. This type of hair loss usually affects just the scalp, but can also occurs in the beard or eyebrows.
  • Sudden shedding of hair due to physical or emotional shock can lead to balding. Handful of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair. This type of hair loss usually needs hair thinning treatment and not baldness treatment.

What are the causes and risk factors for hair loss?

Several health conditions, including thyroid disease, iron deficiency anemia, and hormone imbalance can cause hair loss in an individual. While thyroid blood tests and other lab tests, including a Complete Blood Count (CBC) can help diagnose hair fall, it is important to exclude other causes of hair loss as well.

Because there are many types of hair loss, finding the reason behind hair loss can be challenging. The medical term for hair loss treatment is known as alopecia. Most hair loss is not associated with the systemic or internal disease. Hair may simply thin as a result of predetermined genetic factors and the overall ageing process. Many men and women may notice mild physiologic thinning of their hair starting in their 30s and 40s. Other factors may including illness, emotional trauma, protein deprivation during strict dieting, and hormonal changes like those in pregnancy, puberty, and menopause may also cause hair loss.

Patterned Hair Loss

Patterned Hair loss treatment is available for genetic disorder that occurs when hair that got shredded is not been replaced. In men, the hairline recedes with thin hair loss in front of the head female and different causes of hair loss in men, with less hair density at the scalp and hair shed at the partition. Due to such problems clinics have been set up to give the best hair loss treatment in Hyderabad with a professional set of doctors.

Patchy Hair Loss

Some conditions produce small areas in which hair loss treatment is needed, while others affect large areas of the scalp. Alopecia areata is a condition where small circular or coin size bald patches on the scalp are present.

  • Traction alopecia is thinning from tight braids or ponytails.

  • Trichotillomania is the habit of twisting or pulling hair out.

  • Tinea capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp.

  • Diffuse Hair Loss

Diffuse Hair Loss

Some common causes of diffuse of hair in which hair loss treatment needed is given below

  • pattern alopecia,
  • drug-induced alopecia,
  • protein malnutrition, and
  • The systemic disease which induced alopecia, cancer, endocrine disease, and telogen effluvium.

His is an overall hair thinning treatment without specific kind of bald spots or patterns. While this type of hair loss may not be that noticeable to others, often the individual will feel their hair is not as thick or full as it was previously. Common conditions in this category are:

Telogen effluvium is kind where there is rapid shedding after childbirth, fever, or sudden weight loss;
Androgenetic or androgenic hair loss is also known as male-pattern baldness, female-pattern baldness.

Here are a few reasons for why Hair treatment is recommended over other hair fall treatments:

Enhances the volume and quality of hair follicles.
Hair production gets increased due to activation of hair stem cells.
Reduces hair loss and strengthens existing hair.
Within a span of 4-6 months, new hair follicles can be observed and hair fall gets nullified.
Non-surgical procedure without any side effects.

Pregnancy may cause many changes in the scalp in most of the women so they may need baldness treatment or hair thinning treatment. As the hormones fluctuate during pregnancy, a large number of women feel their hair thickens and becomes fuller during that period or after that. This may be related to change in the number of hairs cycling in the growth phase of hair growth, but the exact reason is unknown but after delivery or a few months later which will eventually normalize.

If you want to have a hair loss treatment than a good daily a multivitamin containing zinc, vitamin B, folate, iron, and A calcium is a reasonable choice, although there is no good evidence that vitamins have any kind of meaningful benefit in alopecia. Newer studies suggest that vitamin D may be somewhat helpful and worth considering in your diet for baldness treatment. Specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies like iron or vitamin B12 may be diagnosed by blood tests and can be treated.

Multiple vitamins, including biotin, have been promoted different methods for hair loss treatment, but solid scientific studies for many of these claims are kind off lacking. While taking biotin and other supplements marketed for hair, skin, and nails probably won’t worsen anything, it may also not necessarily help the situation either of hair thinning treatment.
