Hair Loss
The number of hairs that is normally lost in one day varies, but with an estimated average of 100. In order to maintain a normal volume, hair that is lost daily should be replaced at the same rate. The first signs of hair loss refer to the loss of more hair during brushing or shampooing. The process of hair thinning is so gradual that even the person affected does not notice it directly. Of course, its progression cannot be foreseen. Early detection of the causes of hair loss is crucial to select the most suitable treatment regimen and begin tackling with the problem immediately, but also to protect the existing hair follicles from further and possibly irreversible impairment.
 
The three major disorders affecting the scalp are:
  • Androgenetic alopecia: It is the hereditary thinning or baldness that occurs mainly in men and rarely in women. It is due to the effect of androgens on the hair follicles. Environmental factors play a part, but the full causes remain unknown.
  • Alopecia areata: It is an autoimmune disorder of the hair follicle. It is characterised by uneven hair loss that develops on a otherwise healthy skin. In most cases it is limited to one or more spots, but there are also cases of complete hair loss throughout the head or even the body.
  • Ciatricial alopecia: It is caused in the scalp after a disease. In this case, scalp is produced on the scalp and hair loss is permanent, that is, no hair is re-grown in this area of the skin. The size of the scar of the thinning may be small or large depending on the cause that caused it.
Beyond the basic disorders that cause hair loss, there are other factors such as:
  • Diseases: Sometimes hair loss occurs after high fever or surgery.
  • Hormonal Disorders: Stress as well as childbirth and menopause are three main reasons that lead to a possible hair loss.
  • Poor Diet: Sudden weight loss, lack of protein, iron, and high Vitamin A are often implicated in the appearance of hair loss.
  • Various drugs, such as anticoagulants, contraceptives and anabolic steroids.
  • Wrong washing, drying, hairstyle and toiletries
For the correct diagnosis of hair loss, the patient should first visit a specialist dermatologist as soon as possible. When the patient arrives at Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab, the specialist will get a full medical history, a complete hematological and hormonal check-up will be performed, and in some cases a trichoscopy or a sample will be taken from the affected area.

Hair Loss Treatments
At Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab, we apply the following treatments for hair loss, alone or in combination:
  • Minoxidil: A peripheral vasodilator, when applied topically, stimulates hair growth in people with alopecia. The goal is to slow the rate of hair loss and reverse the hair follicle reduction process.
  • Finasteride: It is one of the most widespread medications worldwide to prevent and treat male hair loss. It should be noted that this medicine has ambiguous results and should only be given to men.
  • Autologous PRP Mesotherapy: This treatment uses platelets, which cause hair follicle growth by stimulating stem cells and other cells in the hair follicle microenvironment. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles in active growth phase as well as the maturation of the fluff.
  • FUE hair transplantation: This method is applied not only to androgenetic alopecia but also to female and chamois hair loss. Hair follicles are collected from the back of the head, which is usually not affected by hair loss, and are implanted one by one in the dilatation area. Implanted hair follicles continue to grow after implantation, since they are programmed by nature not to fall.
