PRP treatment before after

First of all, hair loss is absolute­ly nat­ur­al and it hap­pens to every­body but in men, it goes to the extent of bald­ness. This is the rea­son why men are more con­cerned about los­ing their hair than women. In some cas­es, it severe­ly affects con­fi­dence and self-esteem. There are cer­tain fac­tors asso­ci­at­ed with male hair loss and here is Dr Jha answer­ing some fre­quent­ly asked ques­tions that we receive almost every day.

Q: I am in my late twen­ties, is it nor­mal to have hair loss at this young age?

Dr Jha: Well, we lose some hair every day and get new in their place. The con­cern starts when the growth of new hair slow­downs. In men, the process usu­al­ly begins at the ear­ly twen­ties but it takes a cou­ple of years for us to start notic­ing it. As we reach in the late twen­ties or ear­ly thir­ties we start notic­ing our reced­ing hair­line. The rate of hair loss or thin­ning varies per­son to per­son.

Q: I don’t drink or smoke or don’t have any stress­ful rou­tine, even when I am expe­ri­enc­ing mas­sive hair fall.

Dr Jha: Your lifestyle or any type of stress does con­tribute in hair fall but they are not the sole rea­son for this. Your genes some­times play a cru­cial role or side-effect of any med­ica­tion or poor scalp con­di­tions can be a cause of hair fall.

Q: Why do am I los­ing hair?

Dr Jha: This is actu­al­ly a very broad ques­tion. There are many rea­sons for hair fall like

Andro­genic alope­cia – This tops the rank as a cause of hair loss in men. If you recall see­ing your own pic­tures when you were, say, 10 years old, your head had full of hair but when attain­ing in the mid-teens this vol­ume of hair reduced? The rea­son why it is lost and the hair­line con­tin­ue to recede fur­ther as the age advances are the pro­duc­tion of a hor­mone called DHT(a by-prod­uct of testos­terone) and this in abun­dance till we attain the age of 50 or more. A hair spe­cial­ist would gen­er­al­ly advise to start tak­ing Finas­teride tablets in the strength of 1mg a day and this will essen­tial­ly block the DHT which affects the hair fol­li­cles and stop the hair loss pro­gres­sion to a large extent. The treat­ment is suc­cess­ful and it works for every­one, how­ev­er, there are a few side-effects. Please remem­ber this tablet only pre­vents hair loss and does not accel­er­ate new hair growth.

Genet­ic – If you have bald men in your fam­i­ly his­to­ry then you can expect to go bald at a cer­tain stage. This is the com­mon­est rea­son for all and called male pat­tern bald­ness.

Hair Trau­ma – If you are fond of styling or chem­i­cal prod­ucts or exper­i­ment­ing with your hair, etc. then you are stress­ing your hair fol­li­cles. In response to this, they become frag­ile and start falling off. This type of loss is not per­ma­nent and your hair may regrow when you start treat­ing them right, but I am afraid that the rate of growth may not be very good.

Lack of Nutri­tion – Your hair needs nutri­tion for good growth. If you are not sup­ply­ing the right min­er­als like pro­tein which is very essen­tial for good hair, your growth can be slow or dull in tex­ture. If not in your meals, try to nur­ture those using sup­ple­ments for hair.

Stress – Any type of psy­cho­log­i­cal stress accel­er­ates hair fall. And, it has been noticed that as the con­di­tion improves the hair growth gets back to nor­mal.

Med­ical Con­di­tion – There are cer­tain med­ical con­di­tions that cause hair loss. So, if you are suf­fer­ing from dia­betes or thy­roid then you can blame your med­ical con­di­tion for your hair loss. Some­times, it can be due to the side effect of a long-term med­ica­tion.

Q: If I opt for a hair trans­plant does it stop my hair fall? Is the pro­ce­dure guar­an­teed?

Dr Jha: Well, hair trans­plant is a per­ma­nent solu­tion for hair loss in the right can­di­date and the trans­plant­ed hair will nev­er ever fall, unlike the native hair which you are born with. How­ev­er, you would need to fol­low the advice of your hair sur­geon as to how to look after your scalp hair in gen­er­al. I always advise my patients to con­sid­er oth­er treat­ments first like Finas­teride tablets espe­cial­ly when I do the pro­ce­dure for some­one who is below 50 years of age pro­vid­ed there is no con­traindi­ca­tion of its use.

As we under­stand the minia­tur­i­sa­tion of the hair shaft is main­ly caused by the unop­posed action of DHT on the hair fol­li­cles and Finas­teride is the only treat­ment to reverse the minia­tur­i­sa­tion of the hair to a fuller and thick­er hair shaft. Gen­er­al­ly, there is a com­bi­na­tion of hair loss and also minia­tur­i­sa­tion of the hair shaft and in these sit­u­a­tions, I advise my clients to have com­bi­na­tion treat­ment of oral Finas­teride togeth­er with scalp PRP and micro-needling. At Renew Skin and Health Clin­ic, Leam­ing­ton Spa I gen­er­al­ly rec­om­mend 4 ses­sions of PRP over 4–6 months. At a min­i­mum gap of 4 weeks.

Q: I’ve heard that hair trans­plant leaves scar… is this true?

Dr Jha: Hair trans­plant is a sur­gi­cal process and yes there are blades involved and there can be scars. In my pro­ce­dure, I pre­fer to use sap­phire blades which have added the advan­tage of accu­ra­cy with min­i­mum tis­sue trau­ma and there­fore unlike­ly to have a scar.

That was just a short talk with Dr Jha.
