As we age, hair growth tends to slow down and eventually cease due to the shrinking of hair follicles, resulting in gradual balding of the scalp. Hair loss can significantly impact body image and self-esteem.
The primary cause of hair loss is often genetic, with male pattern balding being common in men after puberty, and female pattern hair loss becoming more noticeable with age. In men, typical signs of hair loss include a receding hairline or a bald spot in the crown area, while in women, it often starts along the hair parting line. Fortunately, there are various treatments available for reducing hair loss and promoting hair regrowth in the areas affected by balding.
To identify the type of hair loss and its underlying causes, your dermatologist will conduct a thorough evaluation that includes taking a detailed medical history, assessing your family history, reviewing your history of illnesses, medications, and hair care routine, among other factors. These investigations are crucial in determining the appropriate course of action for diagnosing and treating your hair loss condition.
Hair loss treatments are commonly sought after by men experiencing male-pattern baldness to prevent further receding of the hairline. Women who have a family history of hair loss also opt for these treatments to prevent premature hair loss, enhance hair volume, and improve overall hair health.
Additionally, hair loss caused by aging is another concern that can be addressed with these treatments. Individuals who are dealing with age-related hair loss and balding can greatly benefit from these interventions
Hair loss treatments, known for their minimal invasiveness and cost-effectiveness, are recognized for their ability to yield long-term results in reducing hair loss, promoting hair regrowth, and enhancing the overall quality of the hair. Visible improvements are often observed within a few months after undergoing the treatment. These treatments have been proven to effectively prevent further balding and restore hair volume and health in a majority of patients, leading to increased confidence and a positive self-image.
After achieving initial results, it is important to maintain hair growth. For maintenance, PRP therapy is typically recommended every six to twelve months, depending on the individual needs of the patient.
