Tackling Hair Fall: Expert Guidance on Diagnosis and Effective Treatment Strategies.

 

Hair fall is a common concern that affects a significant number of individuals worldwide. If you’re experiencing hair fall and seeking effective treatment options in Mumbai, you’re in the right place. INURSKN, a renowned clinic specialising in hair rejuvenation, offers various procedures to diagnose and treat hair fall. In this informative blog, we will delve into the topic of hair fall, discussing its diagnosis, treatment options, medications, hair transplant surgery, laser therapy, and practical steps you can take to manage hair fall. We will also discuss what you can expect from your doctor and how to live with hair fall. So let’s dive in!

Diagnosis:

Before commencing any treatment, it is crucial to determine the underlying cause of your hair fall. Dr Sejal Saheta at INURSKN has more than 15 years of experience with various skin and hair issues and will perform a thorough examination of your hair and scalp, review your medical history, and may conduct additional tests if required. The diagnostic process may involve analysing your hair follicles, performing blood tests to check for any deficiencies or hormonal imbalances, and assessing your overall health. Please note that there are various types of hair loss, and it is essential to identify the exact type and cause of hair fall before any treatment is started. For your reference, below are the main classes of hair fall:

  • Androgenetic Alopecia: This is commonly called male or female-patterned balding. It is genetic and generally brought on as a person ages.
  • Telogen Effluvium: This is when acute hair fall occurs suddenly. The reason for this can vary greatly, ranging from stress to crash diets to much more.
  • Alopecia Areata: A patient with this condition develops baldness on the scalp, sometimes from the beard, etc. It is an autoimmune condition triggered by stress. 4. Scarring hair loss: This is an irreversible type of hair loss caused by burns or certain skin diseases that cannot be treated.

Treatment:

At INURSKN, they offer various effective treatments to address hair fall based on the diagnosis. The treatment plan will depend on the severity of your condition, underlying causes, and individual factors. Here are some standard treatment options:

    • Medication: Your dermatologist may prescribe minoxidil or finasteride to promote hair growth, slow hair loss, or manage underlying conditions contributing to hair fall.
    • FUE Hair Transplant: Hair transplant surgery may be recommended in cases of advanced hair loss. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction method of Hair Transplant. It is the most established and safest hair transplant method, with minimal downtime and excellent results. This method extracts hair follicle units (each team carrying 3 to 4 hair roots) under local anesthesia from the donor area. And each unit is implanted individually in the recipient area. This ensures no cuts, scars, or stitches and minimum pain. The patient can resume work the next day.
    • Laser Therapy: Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive procedure that uses red light to stimulate hair follicles, promote hair growth, and reduce hair fall. It is a painless and safe treatment option.
  • Meso Therapy: Mesotherapy is the mechanism by which a serum consisting of growth factor proteins is delivered into the scalp’s middle layers (mesoderm) using either injections or ionisation. These growth factors help resolve issues like lower cellular metabolism or poor blood circulation and hence help with hair health and boost hair growth.
  • PRP Therapy: The human body has an almost unbelievable innate ability to heal itself. It is precisely this ability that we exploit when we carry out hair rejuvenation with PRP. PRP treatment uses platelet-rich plasma taken from your blood to produce results. This PRP serum aids the growth of new hair and makes the existing hair stronger, leading to dense hair growth.

 

What you can do:

In addition to professional treatments, there are steps you can take on your own to manage hair fall effectively. Here are some practical tips:

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Eat a balanced vitamin, mineral, and protein diet. Regular exercise and adequate sleep also contribute to overall hair health.
  • Be gentle with your hair: Avoid excessive heat styling, harsh chemical treatments, and tight hairstyles that can cause damage and breakage. Use gentle hair care products and avoid brushing wet hair vigorously.
  • Manage stress: Stress can contribute to hair fall. Practice stress-management techniques such as meditation, yoga, or engaging in hobbies that help you relax.

 

What to expect from your doctor:

When you visit INURSKN for hair fall treatment, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation and a personalised treatment plan from Dr Sejal Saheta. Dr Sejal always ensures adequate time to understand the patient’s concerns, conduct a detailed examination, provide an accurate diagnosis, and suggest suitable treatment options. She also ensures that she guides the patient through the treatment process, explains any potential side effects or risks, and answers any questions you may have. Also, her entire team is trained by her and qualified by CIDESCO. The team also ensures that before any procedure is started, the same steps of explanation are repeated to ensure that a patient fully understands what to expect from the system.

 

Living with hair fall:

Dealing with hair fall can be challenging, but it’s essential to remember that you’re not alone. Many individuals experience this issue, and there are effective treatments available. Support groups, online forums, and counselling services can provide emotional support and valuable insights from others going through a similar experience.

Hair fall can be diagnosed and treated effectively. At INURSKN, you can expect personalised care and access to various treatment options, such as medication, hair transplant surgery, and laser therapy. Adopting a healthy lifestyle and managing stress can contribute to maintaining healthy hair. Consult a qualified dermatologist to receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Don’t let the hair fall hold you back!
