Hair Loss Treatment

Hair loss treatment begins with diagnosing the cause of the problem. A dermatologist specializing in hair loss and scalp disorders has the expertise and knowledge to make this diagnosis. He or she will ask questions about how your hair has been changing over time, whether the thinning or loss of hair is confined to a particular area or spread over your head, and if any family members have experienced similar problems. The dermatologist may also gently pull on your hair to see how many strands come out, examine the thinning or balding areas of your scalp with a magnifying light and microscope (called a dermatoscope), and take a small sample of your scalp skin for further testing.서면탈모치료

Genetic factors are the most common causes of hair loss. If you have a family history of hereditary baldness, which is called androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness, you are more likely to experience it yourself. This type of hair loss usually happens gradually and is characterized by a receding hairline and bald spots in men, or thinning patches along the crown of the scalp in women.

Nonsurgical treatments for hereditary hair loss include lotions, tablets, and supplements that slow the rate of hair thinning or stimulate partial regrowth. These products are most effective if they are started at the first sign of thinning or loss and continued consistently. Hair transplantation is another option. This surgical procedure moves hair follicles from areas of your scalp that are not affected by hereditary baldness to bald or thinning areas of your scalp.

A low-level laser therapy has been shown to stimulate regrowth of hair in some people, but more research is needed to determine if this is an effective treatment for hereditary hair loss. Other experimental therapies include platelet-rich plasma, which is derived from your own blood and injected into the scalp to promote regrowth of hair; and microneedling with PRP, a technique that involves penetrating the scalp with fine needles to improve blood flow to the scalp.

If your hair loss is caused by a temporary situation, such as illness, fever, radiation therapy or medicines, it will usually stop once the condition is over. You might want to try wearing a hat or scarf to disguise your hair loss until your hair grows back.

If your hair loss is due to a poor diet, eating more protein-rich foods, such as fish, eggs, cheese, yogurt and nuts, might help. Supplements that contain folic acid, vitamin B6, and zinc might also help. If you are losing hair due to a chronic medical condition, such as lupus or thyroid disease, treating the underlying problem should resolve your hair loss. If you are losing hair because of a mental health condition, talk to your doctor about getting counseling or support groups.부산탈모병원
