How to stop hair loss and thinning and how to regrow full head of hair?

Hello,

This is a very generic question. to answer this question I will have to first give you a brief about the hair loss and its causes.

Broadly speaking hair loss in the male can be divided into two categories as below,

  1. Androgenetic hair loss – this is the most common type of hair loss, this is also called as the male pattern hair loss or genetic hair loss. this type of hair loss is caused by mainly your genetic inheritance and to explain clinically it is caused due to hormone name DHT or dihydrotestosterone. in this case this DHT hormone acts on the roots of your hair follicle causing speed up of hair cycle from anagen phase to telogen phase. after the telogen phase, those hairs ultimately falls off into the exogen phase which is the hair loss phase. after a certain number of such fasten cycles patients lose their hairs permanently causing baldness.
  2. Telogen effluvium – in this type of hair loss main cause is physical or mental stress. physical stress is encountered in any form of overexertion or nutritional deficiency and many other causes like hypothyroidism and other hormonal disturbances.

Now you know the two broad types of hair loss now I will tell you the treatment of those types of hair loss

If you are experiencing telogen effluvium then it’s a temporary phenomenon if you cure stress factor your hair loss will get cured automatically, but by looking at your medicines you are consuming and the symptoms you talk about its quite clear that you are suffering from male pattern hair loss. let me tell you one this type of hair loss is a continuous phenomenon we can only postpone the process of complete baldness but can not cure it completely unless you get done your hair transplant. But you have to save each and every hair you have on your scalp because in genetic hair loss patient each hair is worth million dollar and modern medical science gives you a solution for this.

You are suffering from hair loss and the thinning from this I can guess that you are at initial stages of hair loss to save this and to get whatever hairs you have thinned out you have to opt for following treatments.

  • Minoxidil and Finasteride –  These are the only FDA approved medicines for hair loss which you are consuming. But please make note that these medicines do not regrow hairs which you have lost from roots. These only converts maximum hairs from the telogen phase to the anagen phase which is a growth phase. Due to this, you may experience initial hair loss but this is completely normal. Now the question is how long one should take the minoxidil then here is the answer. TILL THE TIME YOU WANT HAIRS ON YOUR SCALP OR MINOXIDIL STOPS WORKING FOR YOU.

 

  • Evidence-based medicines–  There are some therapies which you can opt for better results. Therapies like PRP, LLLT, mesotherapy these will give you better and fast results. Just make sure you get it done from well-trained professionals.

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.
