There are different types of hair loss or ‘alopecia’, of which Androgenic alopecia is the most common. Also known as male or female pattern baldness, it is a form of hair loss that affects both men and women. Do you know what the differences are?

Caused by a genetic predisposition and hormonal imbalances, particularly an excess of androgens like testosterone, it is characterised by a receding hairline and hair thinning on the crown for men.

Female pattern hair loss is characterised by an overall thinning which maintains the normal hairline and is more common to develop slightly later, predominately during menopause.

Male pattern hair loss can develop as early as the teenage years, but for most, it is usually noticeable in the late twenties to early thirties. The earlier it starts, the quicker the hair loss will progress for most. Even though it is common, it doesn't make the condition any less upsetting.

While there is no cure for androgenic alopecia, several treatment options are available that can help slow down or (to some extent) even reverse the hair loss process.

Medications:

A go-to option for many is the use of medications such as finasteride and minoxidil.

Finasteride is a prescription medication that works by hampering the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone responsible for causing hair loss.

Minoxidil is a topical medication that is applied directly to the scalp to stimulate hair growth. These medications can be effective in slowing down hair loss and promoting hair growth, but they also have side effects and require long-term, continued use to maintain benefits.

PRP ( PLATELET RICH PLASMA)

Platelet Rich Plasma: first used in Europe in 2005, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) hair treatment is a non-surgical, regenerative hair restoration technique that uses the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth. The process involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and injecting it into the scalp to create new hair follicles. PRP injections activate natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicle.

HAIR EXOSOMES

Exosomes are tiny particles formed by stem cells that can be used in therapy to stimulate hair regrowth and restoration. The abundance of growth factors and other proteins in exosomes has been shown to promote both new hair follicle production and the health of existing follicles.

GROWTH FACTORS

Growth factors are natural substances made by skin cells to maintain healthy skin. They bind to the bulge areas of the follicle and potentially promote hair growth and offer potential treatment for certain alopecia.

These growth factors when injected into the human scalp provide the requisite nutrients which help in hair regrowth. First the scalp is cleansed and then growth factors solution applied over it. Then a special devices LIKE DERMAROLLER, STAMPS OR LASERS are used over the scalp to enhance the penetration of the growth factors solution. The whole treatment takes about 15-20 mins.

MESOTHERAPY

Mesotherapy is a form of alternative medicine which involves intradermal or subcutaneous injections of pharmaceutical preparations, enzymes, hormones, plant extracts, vitamins, and/or other ingredients such as hyaluronic acid.

HAIR FILLERS

This procedure uses ready-made syringes containing HA peptide antioxidants that stimulate follicular production and growth. Hair fillers work to promote hair growth by nourishing hair follicles with the nutrients and proteins they require to produce thicker and healthier hair strands.

In addition to increasing the rate of hair growth, hair filler treatment also works to promote the production of new follicles in the scalp by improving blood circulation in the region.

Improved blood circulation ensures that hair-producing cells within the hair follicles are kept well-supplied with the essential materials required to maintain healthy hair growth. All of this is achieved by injecting a mixture of essential nutrients and proteins into the scalp.
