Hair Restoration

The adequate thickness and density of hair significantly add to the looks. It is not uncommon to lose some hair each day. However, some individuals may experience immoderate (more than normal) hair loss. Excessive hair loss can be experienced by men, women, and children. Male-pattern baldness or Androgenic Alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Men who suffer from this type of hair loss, usually have inherited the trait.

Unlike the medical treatments for hair loss, long-lasting outcomes can be obtained with surgical hair transplantation. The most trusted and proven technique which has stood the test of time is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). FUT involves removal of a strip of a superficial layer of hair-bearing scalp from the back and sides of the head. The another technique for hair transplant is FUE (Single hair graft removal using punches) which is the most common procedure done worldwide. The strip is anatomized into fine follicular units under magnification, and individual follicular units are transplanted on to the bald area. For achieving good rewards post hair transplantation, a good survival rate of grafts is important. We take care of each and every step of the procedure like making the grafts adequately sized and custom directed slits for hair, strict no-touch technique, and dedicated teamwork to ensure that the hair is transplanted at a reasonable speed so as to ensure maximal graft take rate.

The procedure is done under local anesthesia and does not require hospitalization. The results are evident immediately after surgery, however, due to shock loss all the transplanted hair fall off, and regrow over a period of 3-6 months. The new hair that grows thus is permanent. The patient may experience some numbness in the scalp after the surgery which gradually resolves over time.

Hair transplant surgery has become a choice of many people today as we know about celebrities such as Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt and many cricketers undergoing this procedure. So, what is hair transplant and why do people undergo the procedure? Are there any precautions that a patient should take before going for a hair transplant? Are there any side effects of hair transplants? All of us have some such questions.

What Causes Hair Loss?

    A head full of hair is taken for granted, but according to various studies, by the time people reach 50, they experience hair loss to some extent. Hair loss happens in over 70% of men and in about 20% of women. As per a study conducted by the ISHRS, a body of medical experts, hair loss has several psychological and emotional effects on a person. People start losing confidence, develops mental and emotional health issues. Given a choice between being bald and having hair, most will choose a head with hair.

    Hair is a far more complex structure than it appears, and multiple factors have an effect on the way it grows. People have about 5 million hair on the body and about 1 million hair on the scalp which is usually present as 1-4 hair in a single follicle. Hair normally grows and falls as part of a hair cycle and losing about 100 hairs a day is considered normal.
    The common causes of hair loss are:

Genetics:

    This is the most common cause of hair fall and hair loss. The loss can be inherited by you from either your mother's side (more common) or your father's side of the family.

Stress:

    Stress from physical or mental work causes hair loss by reducing the supply of necessary nutrients and blood supply to your hair leading to their 'miniaturization' and loss.

Nutrition and Diet:

    Poor nutrition, rapid weight loss/gain and not having proper iron and other proteins is the main cause of hair loss. After all, keratin, a fibrous structural protein, is an essential formative component of hair.

Medical Conditions:

    Chemotherapy, which is a powerful treatment that destroys cancer cells, also results in baldness. Infections, such as ringworm, can pervade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to hair loss. Lifestyle changes: Hormonal fluctuations and imbalances can result into temporary hair loss. This can be due to childbirth, pregnancy, menopause and unbalanced diet. Hormone levels also get affected by the thyroid gland, so thyroid problems may cause hair loss.

Aging:

    Unfortunately, as we age, our follicles can deteriorate, resulting in hair loss

Women suffer from a common type of hair loss, androgenic alopecia also known as female pattern alopecia or baldness. This is viewed as hair thinning predominantly over the top and sides of the head. It upsets approximately one-third of all susceptible women but is most commonly seen after menopause, although it may begin as early as puberty. Within normal hair fall, approximately 100-120 hairs per day are lost. Fortunately, these hairs are replaced. True hairs loss occurs when lost hairs are not re-grown or when the daily hair shed exceeds 125 hairs. Genetically, hair loss can be adopted from either parent's side of the family.

Human hair does not grow evenly and constantly. They grow in phases and always in returning cycles. The three phases of human hair are-
(a) ANAGEN PHASE: 1000 days or more
(b) CATAGEN PHASE: 10-14 days
(c) TELOGEN PHASE: 100 days
There is also a shedding phase, or exogen phase, that is independent of Anagen and Telogen in which one of the several hairs that might arise from a single follicle fall off. Anagen is followed by catagen and the onset of this phase signals the end of active hair growth. During catagen phase club hair is formed over a 2-week period and the process entails a reduction of the blood supply from the hair follicle and the cells that produce new hair. The club hair is a dead fully keratinized hair, and normally 40 such club hairs fall off every day. The transition from Anagen to Catagen is on account of an unknown signal.
Treatment For Hair Loss

  1. There are two aspects of hair loss treatment.
  2. Prevent further hair loss and improve the existing hair.
  3. Grow hair in areas where the roots have been completely lost.
Based on these requirements the 1st line of treatment in any person male/ female is to start on medical treatment. This involves using oral medications and applications to improve the blood supply, reduce the action of dihydrotestosterone as well as add nutrients to the hair root. These, when combined with injections of growth factors, reduces hair fall as well as improves the strength and texture of the present hair. There are several treatments for hair loss, ranging from medicines to lotions to shampoos to laser treatments. However, once the hair follicle, i.e. the root of the hair is dead, none of these treatments are effective of hair growth.
Medical treatment includes-
  1. Minoxidil solution
  2. Minoxidil (2%, 5% or 10% solution) is a spray, gel or lotion that is put directly on your scalp in the balding areas twice a day and it reduces hair loss, increases hair follicles and also thickens the shafts of existing hair in both males as well as females.
  3. It seems to work best on people younger than 30 years of age who have been losing hair for years less than 5.
Skin irritation, dandruff, and an itchy scalp are the most common side effects of this treatment. Women user of minoxidil may experience facial hair growth, especially on the forehead and cheeks. Finasteride Tablets Male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia is caused by the effects of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on genetically susceptible hair follicles that are present mainly in the front, top, and crown of the scalp (rather than the sides and back). Finasteride blocks the enzyme reductase which reduces the level of DHT and improves hair. This is the only US FDA approved oral medication for hair loss. Finasteride should be taken as 1 mg tablet once daily with or without meals by males. A 5 mg tablet is prescribed for women who have completed their families and are approaching menopause. The favorable rewards are seen in 6-12 months. For those who choose not to take Finasteride, or who cannot take it due to its side effects, the surgical hair restoration is just as effective. The only contrast is that medications can prevent further hair loss whereas surgery cannot. Medications are not required for a hair transplant to be successful or the transplanted hair to grow and be permanent. Biotin and Spirulina These along with other micronutrients like Selenium, Zinc, etc. are supplements that improve the ability of the hair root to grow. These work like manure to the hair and strengthens the hair roots. Also, Iron and folic acid tablets improve the hemoglobin level in the blood and are required for people who have hair loss due to anemia.
