Hair Loss Treatment

Generally, hair loss is the loss of hair from the scalp (on our head) or other body parts. Hair loss can include excessive shedding, hair thinning, receding hairline, patchy bald spots, or excessively oily or dry scalp. Hair loss differs between men and women, and can also be different according to region and race (a topic still under research!).

Age is certainly a factor, though not the ultimate one. Hair loss is more likely to affect males, elder people, and highly stressed individual. Fewer than 45% of women go through their lives without any hair loss problem at all, while 50% of men have been found to have mild hair loss, and 75% with moderate to severe hair loss.

Hair loss in men is more of an expectancy compared to that for women. By the age of 80 years, 80% of men are affected by hair loss. Besides, 25% of men start showing hair loss signs as early as in their 20s! 

For women, about ⅓ of women experience hair loss at some point in their lives, and ⅔ women experience hair loss after menopause. However, hair fall is actually extremely normal for both women and man. Losing up to 250 strands of hair when you shampoo is normal for women with long hair!

Aging is no doubt the most common cause of hair loss. However, did you know that you aren’t actually ‘losing hair’, but more on reduced hair growth during old age? On average, our hair grows up to 1.5 inches every month. The process of aging slows down the hair growth (which is unavoidable). So when your hair growth is slower than your hair fall, you start to notice less hair on your head.

However, you may want to see a specialist when you experience the following conditions:

  • Rapid hair loss
  • Hair loss accompanied by itching, skin irritation, pain etc.
  • Hair loss happens after consuming certain foods or medication

Hair Loss Treatment is commonly used to treat the following diseases/condition: Hair Loss

Hair loss is a common longstanding problem for both men and women, albeit in different forms across gender. Hair loss can be caused by aging, genetics, diet, hormones, or skin infections and medications.

There are several types of hair loss treatment that can be done for you to regain a head full of hair, including Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, mesotherapy, hair regrowth injections, and others.

Discuss with your doctor to see which treatment suits your condition best to help you achieve your desired results.

Sometimes, hair loss can be caused by scalp infections like fungal infections or skin disorders. These can usually be treated with medicines or medical treatments, allowing hair to grow back after treatment.

Some medications or treatments can also lead to hair loss, especially those involving cancer (chemotherapy and radiotherapy), diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, or high blood pressure. Hormonal medication, birth control pills, steroids and acne medications affect our hormonal balance and may also lead to hair loss.

Treatments are aplenty these days for hair loss, so even though your hereditary hair loss can be unavoidable, it is certainly treatable. From topical medicines to treatments and procedures, find your preferred treatment at your preferred clinic, here.

It is important to always find out the root cause of the hair loss problems before deciding on the treatment ot be done, and that's exactly what a skin specialist would do.

There are two types of hair loss, scarring alopecia which means there are no more hair follicles on the scalp for hair growth, and non-scarring alopecia, the condition where hair follicles are still present but no hair is growing out of it.

The most common type of hair loss is male and female pattern hair loss, a type of non-scarring hair loss.

Treatments like medication (eg. minoxidil), PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), stem cell treatment and hair transplant can be administered based on your condition after a thorough diagnosis by the skin specialist doctor.

If you have no more hair follicles on your scalp, it means that you have scarring alopecia, or also known as a stable alopecia.

In this case, medications or other external treatments wouldn't be effective as it be able to stimulate anymore hair growth our of the hair follicles which aren't present anymore.

So hair transplant may be needed, where the cosmetic surgeon takes the hair roots from other parts of your body (without hair loss problems) and transplant them onto your scalp.

Hair loss can lead to baldness or alopecia. Conventional treatments for hair loss are shampoos, hair vitamins, etc. Some people who suffer from baldness opt for hair transplant.

The most common cause for hair loss are thyroid disorders, vitamin/mineral deficiency, hormonal imbalances (including stress).

Due to the diagnostic nature of Functional Medicine, it is in a unique position to accurately identify the root cause of hair loss/alopecia and provide natural strategies for managing this disorder. Treatments may vary for each individual thus consultation is most encouraged.

Before engaging any treatments for hair loss, it is important to first find out the cause of hair loss.

Is it due to your diet?
It is important to maintain a healthy diet to avoid (or delay) hair loss. Some nutrients play major roles in hair growth.

Sometimes, a lack of iron or protein (especially iron for women) can lead to hair loss. When our body experience a lack of protein, our body rations the protein in its operation - by stopping hair growth. So don’t forget to load up with proteins - moderately, of course.

Is it due to your hormones?
Hair loss caused by hormonal changes are usually temporary. This is a usual case for women after childbirth or menopause, when severe changes to the hormones are experienced. Hair loss is also normal after giving birth due to the trauma suffered during natural labour causing hormonal spikes.

Our thyroid gland (on our necks) plays a significant role in hormone production and balancing. Underactive or overactive thyroids can affect hormone production, metabolism, and impair hair growth as a result.

After getting your condition diagnosed by a verified doctor, the right treatment can be administered.

Service at the clinic is okay. I found the same doctor. So you know it. Now I want to see what he's doing after the treatment. It's ok again if I use skin care. It's just not very capable. I used the drug first. Look at the cost / budget. Custumer service is okay. Quickly answer questions. That's why all 4 stars I gave.

Hafizah - 28th July 2016

Good service, staff gave tutoring and information regarding my condition. For example, the cause of acne growth and what treatment is right for me. During the discussion, they also served water. The price of the product is also reasonable, some may be slightly expensive but its worth it because it suits my skin. Acne has decreased. I am a bit busy lately, therefore still arranging for further treatment. In my opinion, the product is different from the products available in the market. Friends also say, "You are looking good."Totally worth it because there is a positive sign!

En Hafizi - 24th June 2016 - Original in Malay, translated by Google

Staff and doctor are kind. The cost of treatment is also in my capacity. There is a lack of oily scalp and hair loss. The taste can be further improved in terms of lighting. For example, a doctor can explain the disease in more detail. For me, 4 stars are good enough, maybe 100%.
