Understanding Hair Loss: Causes and Solutions

22 Nov 2023 Posted By Skinlogics

Introduction

Hair loss or Alopecia refers to extensive hair fall usually affecting the scalp or in severe cases the entire body. Depending upon what causes it, hair loss can show up in different ways. It can be sudden or gradual and temporary or permanent. The signs and symptoms of hair loss include gradual hair thinning on top of the head, patchy bald spots, sudden hair shedding, full body hair loss, and scaly patches of hair loss spreading over the scalp.

Hair loss is the most common aesthetic concern worldwide, best addressed by a dermatologist. However, some people suffering from hair fall or loss may leave their affected areas untreated or unhidden while some may cover their bald or thinning areas with hairstyles, makeup, scarves, or hats/caps. Others may opt for hair loss treatment in Noida available at Skinlogics Clinic to prevent future hair loss and regrow hair.

If you are experiencing extensive hair fall or hair loss, you must pursue hair fall treatment in Noida by first consulting a dermatologist and knowing about the cause of your hair loss and available hair loss solutions.

Factors that Cause Hair Loss 

The upper two layers of the skin are covered with tube-like structures called hair follicles. As one age, hair strands grow out of hair follicles. Each of the hair follicles goes through different phases of the hair growth cycle: anagen (growth phase), catagen (transition phase), and telogen (resting phase). At the end of telogen, the hair sheds, and new hair replaces it, so the hair growth cycle continues.

It's normal for anyone to lose 50-100 hair strands a day as new hair grows at the same time. Hair loss is extensive hair fall that happens when hair strands fall in large numbers and the fallen hair strands aren’t replaced by new hair at the same time. It could be because certain hair follicles are programmed to be more in the resting phase and have shorter growth periods.

Several factors may impact hair loss, including:

  • Heredity- The genetic makeup of both parents can influence the child’s predisposition to pattern baldness- medically termed androgenetic alopecia.
  • Hormonal changes- The changes in levels of hormones, specifically the androgens, because of pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid problems can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss. 
  • Medical conditions- Thyroid disease, diabetes, lupus, iron deficiency anemia, lichen planus, scalp ringworm infection, and hair-pulling disorder (trichotillomania) can all cause hair loss.
  • Autoimmune disease- Alopecia areata or patchy hair loss is a type of hair loss resulting from an attack of immune system cells on hair follicles.
  • Certain medications- Chemotherapy drugs, beta-adrenergic blockers, blood thinners, antidepressants, arthritis and gout medications, and oral contraceptives can cause hair loss as a side effect.
  • Some cosmetic procedures- Frequent or excessive hair shampooing, dyeing, perming, and bleaching can all contribute to overall hair thinning and make hair follicles weak and hair brittle, ultimately causing hair loss.
  • Head radiation therapy- The scalp hair loss caused by radiation exposure may not be restored with new hair the same as before.
  • Poor nutrition- The deficiencies in Vitamins A to E, minerals like iron and zinc, calories, and proteins can all cause temporary hair loss.
  • Burns and injuries- If the scalp's skin gets burnt or injured, scarring does not allow hair regrowth following hair loss.
  • Physical or emotional stress- A physical or emotional shock may lead to general hair thinning or hair loss. Patchy hair loss is a stress-induced autoimmune condition.
  • Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles- Tight hairstyling, using rollers or hot curlers, and hair straightening with heating tools can all contribute to excessive falling out of hair.

Hair Loss Solutions in Noida

There are plenty of hair loss control treatments available, but the best option will be the one that caters to the needs of the patient depending on what has caused hair loss. Typically, the first line of treatment for common types of hair loss is topical or oral medications.

For severe hair loss, there are many in-office hair loss treatments offered at Skinlogics, a hair treatment clinic in Noida worth exploring.

Here are the top 4, advanced hair loss treatments:

Scalp Microneedling in Noida

This treatment involves the use of a derma roller- a handheld device covered with tiny needles of varying lengths. When the microneedling device is rolled over the treatment area, it helps create multiple micro-injuries in the skin, boost fresh collagen production, and regenerate the health of hair follicles. It can encourage new hair growth by stimulating hair follicles, improving blood supply to hair roots, and increasing absorption of topical hair loss treatments. It helps thicken hair and successfully treat general hair loss, patchy hair loss, and pattern baldness. The overall procedure can take a few minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. The expected results can show up in 3-6 months.

Hair Mesotherapy in Noida

Mesotherapy involves injecting the mesoderm of the scalp skin with a blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other hair-growth stimulating agents. This treatment enables thorough nourishment of hair follicles, negation of D-H-T hormone, and improvement in blood circulation that ultimately leads to quick growth and long-term maintenance of new hair. Multiple sessions, typically 5 scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, are needed to get optimal treatment outcomes. For maintenance of the results, the therapy must be performed every 3-6 months.

GFC Treatment in Noida

GFC stands for Growth Factor Concentrate, which refers to the activated growth factors derived from the patient’s blood pl-atel-ets. In GFC hair loss treatment, the activated growth factors are administered at the hair roots by directly superficially injecting them into the scalp. This treatment helps regain lost hair, reduce hair fall, and improve hair thickness while strengthening the hair shafts, promoting hair growth, and increasing hair numbers. Three to four sessions are usually needed for the noticing of the desired results.

Hair Transplant in Noida

Hair transplant is a surgical method to treat hair loss and is performed when all other treatments fail. It involves transferring healthy hair follicles to the bald or thinning parts of the scalp. There are two techniques for performing this: Follicular unit transplantation/strip method and Follicular Unit Extraction. This treatment is ideal for pattern baldness. After surgery, the transplanted hair first falls out and then new hair shows continued growth. The expected results are seen after 6 months to a year and last for a lifetime.
