Should I use Minoxidil for hair loss

When talking about hair loss, it’s seen that everyone thinks that if you get hair fall then minoxidil should be used and it’s the solution to recover the lost hairs back. But it’s completely not true at all. Minoxidil should be used with dermatologist concern only and it’s not an over the counter medication.

It’s always better to get your hair checkup during your initial stages and to start with the treatments to face fewer problems.

Let’s talk about 10 points as to why we experience hair loss:

  • Lack of poor nutrition level in the body.
  • Medical issues like thyroid problems, gynecological problems like PCOD
  • Sudden weight loss due to physical stress.
  • Having steroids for increasing muscle in the body.
  • Heredity.
  • Excess intake of vitamin A deficiency.
  • Hormonal imbalance in the body.
  • Using styling products.
  • Ageing
  • Chemotherapy

Hair loss and hair thinning are the major problems among teenagers and the adult crowd. As they experience hair loss, they start goggling and start with minoxidil usage without knowing the importance of the medications and why one should consume this medication. As nowadays the internet is very easily accessible so everyone does not feel important to meet a dermatologist and to get the skin or hairs checked.

Minoxidil is a US FDA approved a drug which works well for pattern baldness and hair thinning in both men and women. This medication is having few side effects also, and which remain uncleared to the over the counter medication takers. They just pick the medications and with just half knowledge they start using this medication. It’s very important to know the effects and how to deal with the medications. It’s so much seen, during hair shedding periods everyone starts panicking as they don’t know about this phase in details. So let’s talk about hair shedding in details.

Let’s talk about 5 hair shedding facts:

  • Hair shedding is temporary.
  • Hair shedding is a good sign which shows that the medication is working on you well.
  • After hair shedding, new hairs grow back.
  • Just last for about 3 months or so.

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.
