Different treatment for hair loss

Hair loss (alopecia) may only affect the scalp or the whole body and can be temporary or permanent. It may be the result of inheritance, changes in hormones, medical conditions, or a natural part of ageing. Anyone may lose their hair on their head, but in men it is more common. Typically, baldness refers to excessive loss of hair from your scalp. The most common cause of baldness is hereditary hair loss with age. Some individuals tend to let untreated and unhidden hair loss run its course. Others with hairstyles, hats or scarves may cover it up. And some also prefer one of the available treatments to prevent further hair loss or restore growth. Here in this blog Dr Gajanan Jadhao who is well known hair transplant Surgeon in Kerala, India explains different choices for Hair Loss Treatment.

What are the Choices for Hair Loss Treatment?

There are good therapies available for certain kinds of hair loss. You should be able to reverse, or at least slow, hair loss. With some conditions, including patchy hair loss (alopecia areata), hair can regrow within a year without treatment. Hair loss therapies include drugs and surgery.

1. Medicines

Treatment for that condition would be appropriate if the hair loss is caused by an underlying disease. If hair loss is caused by a certain drug, your doctor can advise you to stop using it for a few months. To treat pattern (hereditary) baldness, medications are available. The choices that are most popular include:

  • Around minoxidil (Rogaine): Minoxidil is available over-the-counter (nonprescription) in liquid, foam and shampoo forms. Minoxidil products help many individuals regrow their hair or delay the rate of hair loss, or both. To stop more hair loss and to start hair regrowth, it will take at least six months of care. It can take a few more months to tell if the medication works for you. If it works, in order to maintain the advantages, you may need to continue taking the drug indefinitely. Possible side effects on the adjacent skin of the face and hands include scalp irritation and unwanted hair growth.
  • Finasterid (Propecia): This is a drug for men with a prescription. You take it as a pill per day. A slowing of hair loss is experienced by many men taking finasteride, and some may demonstrate new hair development. It can take a couple of months to tell if it’s working for you. To maintain any advantages, you’ll need to keep taking it. For men over 60, Finasteride does not perform as well. Finasteride’s unusual side effects include reduced sex drive and sexual function, and an increased risk of prostate cancer. There is a need to stop handling crushed or broken tablets for women who are or may be pregnant.
  • Miscellaneous drugs: Spironolactone (Carospir, Aldactone) and Oral Dutasteride are other oral alternatives (Avodart).

2. Surgery for Hair Transplant

In the most prevalent type of permanent hair loss, only the top of the head is impacted. Hair transplantation, or surgery for regeneration, will make the most of the hair you have left.

A dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon extracts hair from a section of the head that lacks hair during a hair transplant operation and transplants it to a bald spot. Each hair patch has one to many hairs (micrografts and minigrafts). A wider strip of skin containing different groupings of hair is often taken. This procedure does not require hospitalisation, but it is uncomfortable to give you a sedation medication to relieve any discomfort. Bleeding, bruising, swelling and infection are possible threats. To get the result you want, you might need more than one surgery. Despite surgery, inherited hair loss will gradually progress.

3. Therapy with lasers

A low-level laser system has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for hereditary hair loss in men and women. There have been a few small studies suggesting that it increases hair density. To show long-term effects, further studies are needed.
