Some diseases and medical treatments can also cause hair loss. This problem can be prevented by having hair treatment for hair loss.

Hair treatment for hair loss
There is no cure for certain hair loss diseases such as alopecia areata, totalis, universalis, incused and androgenetic. However, proper hair management and treatment can reduce the symptoms and restore hair growth. The hair loss treatments that a dermatologist will do depend on the type that exists. There are a limited number of medications available, but they can be extremely effective with a treatment plan.
While home remedies have gained popularity, there are few to no studies that confirm the effectiveness of such treatments. In some cases, they can do even more harm than good, given their minimal effectiveness in relation to the unknown side effects they could have on your body. It is best to follow the medical advice of a dermatologist because they know what will cure or will not cure the disease. Here are some popular hair loss treatments to look out for:
- Aloe Vera
- Onion juice
- Egg masks
- Licorice root
- Coconut milk
While some over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are quite effective for prescribing, other over-the-counter drugs have limited effects on the disease. They may help in mild to moderate cases, but are usually not effective in severe cases. Used incorrectly and without instructions, they can prove ineffective and cause unpredictable side effects. However, a dermatologist can tell you if these can be effective for you. Here are some over-the-counter medications that may or may not be included in a treatment plan given by one of our dermatologists:
- Minoxidil Initially used for high blood pressure. Helps blood flow to the hair follicles, increasing their size and the diameter of the hair shaft. This helps the hair to grow and maintain it for alopecia.
- Antifungals Kills tinea capitis fungus if present.
Androgenetic alopecia, also called hair loss, affects both men and women. In men, it starts with a receding hairline in the temples and thinning of the crown. These areas enlarge and eventually converge. In women, it appears to be thinning in the anterior central scalp with enlargement of the central part. Hair loss treatment options include minoxidil, hair transplant surgery, finasteride (men only) and PRP treatment.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune skin disease that results in hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere in the body. The immune system, which is designed to protect the body from foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria, accidentally attacks the hair follicles. This can lead to hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere. This type of hair loss is more common in men. Alopecia areata usually starts with one or more small, round, smooth patches on the scalp and can progress to total hair loss on the scalp (alopecia totalis) or complete loss of body hair (alopecia universalis).
In all forms of alopecia, the hair follicles remain alive and ready to resume normal hair production whenever they receive the appropriate signal. Treatment options are available for mild, broken alopecia (hair loss of less than 50% on the scalp), although there is no acceptable treatment that works in all cases.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an outpatient procedure that increases the density and thickness of the hair using the body’s platelets.
How PRP works
Platelets contain growth factors that promote healing and reduce recovery time. They are used in various fields of medicine for tissue regeneration. For example, in orthopedics, PRP is used to accelerate the healing of musculoskeletal injuries. In dermatology, PRP has been found to increase hair density and hair thickness by using the body’s natural growth factors to strengthen hair follicles.
First, blood is collected and collected in a special platelet that separates the tube into a centrifuge. Once the separation is complete, platelets are collected and injected into the treatment area.
How many treatments are needed?
A typical hair loss treatment plan includes three treatments that are divided into monthly intervals, followed by another treatment four months later. Because hair loss is a persistent condition, maintenance treatments 1-2 times a year may be required.
Does everyone react to PRP?
PRP works best for people whose hair loss has started in the last 6 years. Its effectiveness depends on the amount of hair follicle residue. Individual results may vary.
How long does the process take?
Sample collection takes 5 minutes. There is a closure while the sample is transferred to the centrifuge, rotated for 10 minutes and the PRP is collected. The PRP injection into the scalp lasts 5-10 minutes.
What to expect during PRP treatment
Your blood will be drawn and prepared during your appointment. PRP treatments begin by taking a small sample of your blood that your dermatologist will use for centrifugation to separate red blood cells and plasma from platelet-rich plasma.
PRP releases natural growth factors and enhances the body’s natural healing process. This solution is then injected directly into the scalp at the thinning areas. PRP then stimulates your body’s growth response to increase the number and density of hair.
