Hair Loss Treatment
HAIR LOSS TREATMENT
“Will my hair grow back?” This is the most asked question at a Trichologist’s clinic. While there is no simple answer to this, the chances are better if you are following the right treatment. Right treatment follows as a corollary of right diagnosis. Right hair loss treatment does not necessarily mean years of treatment. When correctly treated most cases stabilize within a reasonable time frame. The various types of treatment options can be classified under 3 basic categories.
When hair loss is the result of telogen effluvium or medication side effects, the hair loss usually is all over the head, while in tinea infections and alopecia areata, the hair loss occurs in small patches. Also, tinea infections can cause additional symptoms, such as scaling of the scalp or areas of broken hairs that look like black dots. In traumatic alopecia, the area of hair loss depends on the method of hair injury and follows the pattern inflicted by hot rollers, braiding or chemical treatments in which it is also referred at American Academy of Dermatology Association. In male-pattern baldness, It usually begins to recede at the temples first, followed by thinning at the top of the head. Gradually, the crown area becomes totally bald, leaving a fringe of hair around the back and sides of the head.
We normally lose approximately 50 to 100 scalp hairs each day. If more than this is falling out, you may find unusually large amounts of hair in brushes, on clothing, and in the drains of sinks and tubs. You may also notice that your hair is generally thinner, that your part is wider, that your hairline has changed or that one or more bald patches have appeared.
