Hair fall can affect the scalp and it can be temporary or permanent. It can be hereditary due to hormonal changes, medical conditions, or a normal part of aging. Anyone can lose hair on their head, but it’s more common in men.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. Hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness. Some people prefer to let their hair loss run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats, or scarves. And still, others choose one of the treatments available to prevent further hair loss or restore growth.
Hair loss can appear in many different ways, depending on what’s causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually and affect your scalp.
Hair Fall - Causes
People typically lose 50 to 100 hairs a day. This usually isn’t noticeable because new hair is growing at the same time. Hair loss occurs when new hair doesn’t replace the hair that has fallen out.
Causes can be :
- Family history (heredity)
- Hormonal changes and medical conditions
- Medications and supplements
- A very stressful event
- Hairstyles and treatments
Hair Fall - Symptoms
- Gradual thinning on top of the head.
This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting people as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede at the hairline on the forehead. Women typically have a broadening of the part in their hair.
- Sudden loosening of hair.
A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning but is temporary.
- Circular or patchy bald spots.
Some people lose hair in circular or patchy bald spots on the scalp, beard, or eyebrows.
HAIR FALL / LOSS TREATMENT
1. HydraFacial KERAVIVE
From the same stable as the ever-popular Hydrafacial, this relaxing three-step treatment is designed to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and hydrate the scalp.
The first step, Cleanse & Exfoliate, uses Vortex Technology which helps dislodge and remove impurities from the scalp and hair follicles.
This is followed by Hydrate + Nourish, which uses a peptide complex solution to exfoliate and nourish hair follicles with biomimetic growth factors and skin proteins, to promote a healthy scalp and healthier, fuller-looking hair.
To finish, the home-use daily Peptide Complex Spray enhances the treatment and delivers hydration and nourishment to the scalp and hair follicles.
HydraFacial Keravive can also complement hair loss treatment protocols: a cleaner, healthier scalp encourages better uptake and efficacy of popular oral, topical, laser, and surgical therapies. The recommended regime is three monthly treatments, with the topical spray for use in-between.
After just one treatment, patients reported improvement in scalp itchiness, scalp dryness, scalp flakiness, and hair fullness.
2. MAGNETIC THERAPY, TIXEL & GROWTH, FACTOR WITH PRP
Magnetic therapy is done with Venus viva diamond polar probe. It is an RF-based machine with a magnetic pulse. It improves the blood circulation of the scalp and enhances hair growth.
Tixel is a nonlaser fractional system that is based on thermomechanical ablation technology. Using heat energy when the tip of the tixel touches the scalp, causes micro-injuries that encourage the scalp to produce collagen and stimulate the hair follicles. Tixel transfers heat directly to the scalp with patented titanium tips.
Growth factor with PRP injections is a proven hair loss treatment that can regenerate and promote hair growth for men and women by using your own platelet-rich plasma with growth factors to target areas of hair loss. It regenerates and repairs your damaged hair follicle by injecting growth factors.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. PRP contains a range of growth factors and proteins. Platelets promote cell growth and regeneration. As the term “platelet-rich plasma” suggests, platelets are generally about five times more concentrated in PRP than in regular blood. This concentration of platelets is useful because platelets secrete growth factors that promote hair growth
When it comes to hair loss, the theory is that platelets, injected deep into the scalp to reach the bottom of the hair follicle, may stimulate a specialized population of cells named dermal papilla cells, which play a critical role in hair growth.
3. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Withdraw 8.5 ml blood and centrifuge it so that only the enriched cells or platelets (PRP) remain. The PRP or highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma, including essential growth proteins, is injected into the scalp or areas to be treated using a special microneedle.
When injected, gets to work in the bulge region of our hair follicles – this area is home to most of the hair follicles’ stem cells. The addition of growth factors from the plasma helps stimulate activity and promote new hair growth.
Growth factors present in PRP stimulate stem cells of hair follicles in the scalp to develop new hair follicles and improve the thickness of the existing follicles.
