Hair loss

Hair loss is a cause for genuine worry in both males and females alike.This problem can be faced by people of all age groups and both the genders. The cause of hair loss varies from patient to patient. It could be anything from physical or emotional stress, environmental pollution, to genetic or hereditary causes, etc which could result in hair loss, receding hairline, bald patches or simply thinning of hair.

Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness is a known cause of hair loss in males. It implies that this pattern of hair loss was seen to be present in the maternal or paternal sides of your family. FInasteride and Minoxidil are FDA approved drugs, and they are the current mainstay of treatment for male pattern baldness. But therapy with both the drugs is usually started after assessment of the patient’s condition, grade of hair loss, type, and cause of hair loss etc. Mostly, for appropriate results combined therapy is started along with any of the following treatment options:-

  1. Micro- Needling or Derma Roller
  2. Mesotherapy
  3. Low-level laser light therapy
  4. Platelet-rich plasma therapy

Hair loss therapy with Finasteride and minoxidil usually requires 2-4 months of regular treatment in order to comment upon the efficacy of treatment.

Male Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in male ranging from genetics or family history of hair loss, daily or work life stress etc. Hair loss may be genetic or non-genetic. The following section briefs you about few top causes of hair loss and treatment for it.

The most important type of hair loss in males is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Almost 70% to 80 % of males suffer from male pattern baldness. The main causes of hair loss in men are usually changing in eating habits or crash dieting, change in environment or stress induced due to work or personal reasons. HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, provides our patients with proven hair loss treatment which are based on 28+ years of successful clinical experience Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV & proven medical research. The mainstay of treatment for male pattern hair loss is finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride blocks the hormones i.e. 5 alpha reductase in the body which are responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth in bald patches or spots. Apart from finasteride and minoxidil various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling (derma roller), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) are some of the ways to treat hair loss.

In PRP for hair loss, concentrated growth factors are extracted from the blood of the patient and then transferred back to the scalp of the patient. In micro-needling (derma roller for hair loss treatment) thousands of micro punctures are created in patient’s scalp with the help of derma roller. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a cold laser (red laser waves) is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. This treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair. All these treatment procedures along with medicine are responsible for the great results. We are able to give to our patients suffering from hair loss.
