5-reasons-why-men-suffer-from-hair-loss-1540x537-carousel

Advantages and Disadvantages of the Current Practice of FUE

Advantages

  • No permanent linear scar
  • Comfortable healing process
  • Decreased healing time
  • Fewer limits on post-op activity
  • Viable alternative if decreased scalp laxity
  • Useful if limited number of grafts are needed (e.g. eyebrows)
  • Good of patient is a poor healer
  • Ideal to repair donor scar that cannot be effectively excised
  • Able to “cherry pick” most desirable size and caliber FU.
  • Good if patient prefers to wear their hair < 2 mm.

Disadvantages

  • Fewer permanent hairs transplanted for equal number of hairs in larger (2000+ FU) sessions due to harvesting outside of the safe donor region
  • Variable follicle transection (2-10%)
  • Small punctate scars
  •  Time consuming
  • Costs more, labor, etc
  • Patient has to cut hair very short
  • Scarring of donor area may make subsequent FUE sessions more difficult
  • Limited candidates (not ideal for white or curly hair)
  • Grafts slightly more fragile and subject to trauma during placing since they often lack the protective dermis and fat of miscroscopically-dissected FUs.

 

 

Which Specialist Do I Talk to About Hair Loss?

our-specialty-image

Do you see more hairs in your hands when you shampoo?  Are you watching your precious hairs go down the shower drain?  Are you pulling more hairs out of your brush?

If you’re worried about hair loss, maybe you’re starting to think about hair transplantation. Is a hair transplant right for you? What other options besides surgery are available? You know there are a few hair-loss drugs, but don’t know much about them.

 What’s the next step? Maybe you should talk to a medical professional, but whom?

You’re PCP

If you’re like many people, you might have a primary care physician (PCP) you turn to for general, everyday care.  For reference, a “PCP” is usually board certified in Family Practice or Internal Medicine, so they cover a large breadth of knowledge but are not “specialists.”

PCPs attend to many patients and are able to manage a wide range of maladies: blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid issues, chronic back pain, sore throats, and so on.

While there’s no reason your PCP can’t discuss hair loss or hair restoration with you, it might not be the best option.

To the average PCP, hair loss doesn’t rank high on the list of pressing health concerns. It’s not a life-threatening condition and treatments generally aren’t covered by insurance. Plus, most PCPs won’t have an extensive background to discuss hair loss disorders. Thus, if you do choose to talk to your PCP about hair loss, the best option is to ask him/her for a referral to a dermatologist.

Dermatologist

Dermatologists are specialists; therefore, they focus on a far-narrower spectrum of healthcare. When it comes to discussing hair restoration with a medical professional, a dermatologist is probably the best choice. Hair is considered a “skin appendage.”  That means it originates from and is an integral part of the skin. So, hair follicles and hair-related problems are an inherent dermatological issue. More importantly, dermatology is the only medical specialty that requires doctors to be trained in the diagnosis and treatment of hair-related disorders.

Since hair loss is a recognized part of their field, dermatologists not only have more experience and training, but also greater motivation for staying up-to-date on the latest hair-loss treatments and technologies.

What’s Happens Now?

Your dermatologist will probably first ask you a list of questions about your hair loss:

  • Lifestyle (e.g., hair care practices, sudden weight loss, recent surgery, diet restrictions, etc.)
  • Medications or Supplements you’re taking
  • Family history (yes, genetics plays a major role in certain types of baldness).
  • Current illnesses
  • Length of time you have been noticing hair loss and related symptoms (itching, flaking, etc)

Your dermatologist might also conduct a direct examination of the scalp looking for signs of inflammation or alopecia (medical term for hair loss).

Based on your answers to the medical questions and their examination of your scalp, the dermatologist might next:

Order additional tests and/or screenings – If your dermatologist suspects there are other factors at play besides pattern baldness, he/she might want to perform a biopsy or rule out other conditions such as vitamin deficiencies or anemia.

Prescribe medications – Your dermatologist might decide to guide you through treatment on Minoxidil (Rogaine) and/or Finasterida (Propecia).

Make a referral – Hair Restoration surgeons are even more specialized, so most general dermatologists do not perform hair transplant procedures; however, they may know whether or not you are a good candidate. He/she should be able to refer you to a reputable hair surgeon near you or guide you to for Hair transplantation Surgeons website to help you locate one.

If your hair loss is causing you significant distress, it’s important to talk to a qualified doctor about it. Start with the right specialist to help you determine why you are losing your hair and if a hair transplant is right for you.

The surgeons at Excellence Hair Transplant & Laser Center, have years of experience and training in hair loss and hair transplantation.

Receding Hairline Stages: What You Can Expect To See As It Gets Worse

Noticing a receding hairline can be a devastating discovery, but knowledge is power.

Receding hairlines can affect men and women of all ages for different reasons. The most common cause for men is male pattern baldness, caused by genes making the hair susceptible to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT makes hair follicles shrink, leading to hair loss. Women can also experience receding hairlines but more often their hair loss is diffused. It can be related to DHT, but it is typically a result of lowered estrogen levels with menopause.

Some drugs can also induce hair loss. For example, hormone replacement therapy is becoming common place for men and women who are seeking to maintain youthfulness, energy levels and muscle mass. Sometimes HRT includes progesterone and testosterone, which will increase your DHT levels. This can cause a sudden progression of hair loss.

When considering treatment, it’s important to understand the different stages of hair loss.

Stages of Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness is grouped in stages according to the Norwood Scale, a set of images that divides receding hairlines into seven levels and 2 types:

Norwood ScaleStage I shows minimal hair loss. Hair still appears full, and hair loss is generally unnoticeable. This type would be considered “normal” for a young man in his teens and 20s. If you are still stage I in your 30s, consider yourself lucky.

Stage II indicates hair loss is beginning around the temples but it is too insignificant to be visible. Sometimes this can seem to occur rather suddenly when a man is in his early 20s and the last surge of puberty hits. It can be the cause for alarm for a young man, but it does not necessarily mean you are destined to be bald.

Stage III is the stage at which hair loss becomes visible with deeper temporal recessions. For a man in his 40s, this could be considered “normal,” as the majority of men experience some degree of hair loss as they age. It is also the first stage at which treatment becomes viable.

Stage IV shows continuing hair loss around the hairline and more visible thinning at the vertex. If you are trying to slow down the progression, you will definitely want to initiate treatment here, and transplant may be an option.

Stage V depicts larger areas of hair loss at the front and top of the head, but at this stage, there is still some hair left in the midscalp to separate the areas of hair loss between the front and back, or hairline and crown.

Stage VI shows very significant hair loss. Most of the hair on top of the head has been lost at this point. There may be some thin hair between the receding hairline and vertex, but in general, it is one continuous area of hair loss. Some people refer to this pattern as the “horseshoe,” because the hair that remains is in the shape of a “U” around the sides and back of the scalp. It would take multiple sessions of transplant to restore this pattern and that is dependent on the donor availability, which at this point, is usually not abundant.

Stage VII, the most extreme stage on the Norwood Scale, means there is little to no hair at the front and top of the head. The remaining hair sits low above the ears and at the back of the head.

Intermingled with these 7 stages is the Vertex Type and the Anterior Type. The Vertex Type is described above in stages II-VII and is the more typical hair loss pattern for men. The Anterior Type follows Stages III-V and instead of separate areas of hair loss (hairline and crown), you have a progressive backward march of the hairline. The further back your hairline sits, the higher the corresponding stage.

Women may find themselves pictured on the Norwood Scale, but more often their pattern will be defined by the Sinclair or Ludwig scales for hair loss.

Treatment Options

Depending on the stage of hair loss, individuals experiencing receding hairlines may seek treatment to restore their hair. Everyone loses hair differently, and treatments may vary.

Receding-hairline-treatment-with-minoxidil-before-and-after

Early treatment is critical to success, and the highest response rates have been shown to occur with combination therapy. Combining a topical medication such as minoxidil (Rogaine) with an oral medication such as finasteride (Propecia), produces a synergistic response. Minoxidil (Rogaine), which reinvigorates shrunken hair follicles, while finasteride (Propecia), interferes with testosterone activation to DHT, blocking the signal for hair loss. Combination therapy is recommended for a minimum of six months to one year in order to see results.

Hair transplants are a viable option for many patients. There are different types of procedures, but essentially all hair transplants take hair from areas of the scalp that have stronger hair (namely the back or sides), and place them in areas of baldness. There is currently FUE methods of hair transplants: follicular unit extraction (FUE) Available. This method is outpatient procedures which we perform at the Excellence Hair Transplant Centre in Vadodara.

Hair Loss & Scalp Disorders

hair-loss-treatment

Hair coming out in clumps rather than individual strands.

Hair loss: How much is too much?

Hair is not permanent. Follicles cycle through actively growing and resting phases, shedding existing hairs and growing new ones. On average, we lose about 100 hairs a day, as evidenced by the accumulation on your pillowcase and in your hairbrush. Surely, you aren’t going to count every hair you lose, every day. There are a few clear signs of potential problems:

Hair coming out in clumps rather than individual strands.

A noticeable increase in the hairs shed during the night, or when washing or combing your hair.

Your hair seems finer than it used to be.

Balding or thinning spots or a receding hairline.

Should you be concerned?

In most cases, hair loss is not medically dangerous. It is typically caused by factors such as scalp conditions, hair styling products, stress, or genetics. However, it can be emotionally and psychologically devastating. Our confidence is strongly affected by our appearance. Even more important for many individuals are the symbolic and social connotations related to hair loss.

Many people erroneously believe that hair loss only happens to men, so women often feel abnormal and ashamed when facing this problem. For men, it can be just as difficult to face. Although male hair loss is widely accepted as “normal” it is associated with old age, causing many men to feel “over the hill” when it begins. The age related association is especially challenging for young people who experience hair loss, which is more common than many people realize.

Treatment may be optional if you are not bothered by the condition. However, if you decide not to treat your hair loss, the cause should be diagnosed by a dermatologist, because in some instances it is actually a symptom of a medical condition.

Types of hair loss

Hair loss, known as alopecia in medical terms, comes in many forms, from thinning to complete baldness. There are many types of hair loss. A few of the most common include:

Alopecia Areata – This autoimmune disorder causes your body to attack its own hair follicles.

Androgenetic Alopecia – This is often called Male Pattern Baldness, though it can occur in men or women. It is caused by genetics and hormonal factors.

Telogen Effluvium – This is brought on by a stressful condition, and usually begins several months after the trigger.

Chemical Hair Damage – This is often associated with hair styling products. Chemical exposure causes hair to dry and become brittle, breaking off.

Traction Alopecia – This is another hairstyling-related problem. It occurs when the hair is pulled too tight, damaging the follicles.

Scalp MicroPigmentation for Alopecia

Scalp MicroPigmentation for Alopecia and other scalp conditions can help to mask and cover issues with this type of hair loss. While there are no cures for Alopecia Arreata, Alopecia Universalis, the treatment can provide some effective relief from the visual signs of this type of hair loss.

Traction alopecia and numerous other hair diseases can be addressed with this treatment, and we can help camouflage the damage with Scalp MicroPigmentation for Alopecia treatment, so that sufferers of these conditions can continue their life feeling more confident about the way they look.

Alopecia Universalis is a condition that causes complete balding in the scalp, so we have to create not only a new hairline but a completely new hair shape on the whole scalp.  Due to the large area more sessions might be needed then with a normal case of male pattern baldness, but the results can be life changing giving complete freedom.

Full Alopecia with Scalp Pigmentation Alopecia Arreata is sometimes referred to as spot balding and as it’s usually not successful to transplant hairs into affected areas. Using SMP to cover these bald areas can help them blend into the unaffected areas, and therefore hiding the condition.  Most people prefer to shave down when having SMP for Alopecia but for women, and those with smaller areas we often blend this in between existing hair. This creates what often looks like a perfectly normal hair line and design.

There are numerous other conditions like Traction alopecia, scarring alopecia and Lupus just to name a few that can cause balding areas to appear in the scalp. Usually we can offer considerable relief for those people by helping to hide the area with SMP hair replication. If you suffer from scalp disorders and would like to mask them contact one of our specialists who can help you camouflage your condition.
