Hair Loss Treatment in Mysore
Hair loss, or alopecia, is when hair falls from the scalp, face, or body. Ranging from mild to severe, it can affect both men and women. Reasons include genetics, physical or emotional stress, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, and medical conditions such as alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder. Androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, affects men more than women. Other types of alopecia include alopecia areata- an autoimmune disorder; telogen effluvium- hair loss caused by physical or emotional stress; trichotillomania- hair loss caused by obsessive-compulsive disorder.
A full medical assessment with a doctor to check for any medical conditions that may affect the procedure, or the outcome is required.
Then, a physical examination by the doctor to check for any scalp diseases, such as alopecia areata or male pattern baldness, is conducted. A biopsy of the scalp or a blood test may be ordered. Consult with our experts to know more.
The doctor may recommend special shampoos and conditioners before the procedure, vitamins and minerals for a healthy scalp, and a topical medication such as minoxidil.
There are multiple procedures available to treat hair loss, ranging from topical treatments to surgical procedures.
Topical treatments such as Minoxidil (Rogaine) can be applied directly to the scalp and are used to increase blood flow and stimulate hair growth.
Medications such as Propecia block the production of a male hormone that causes hair loss.
Surgical options such as hair transplantation, a procedure where hair follicles are taken from an area of the scalp where hair is still growing and transplanted to the area of hair loss, are also available.
Scalp reduction surgery may be recommended
Post-procedure includes hair transplantation, scalp reduction, scalp extension, hair styling, and hair care.
Washing the scalp with a mild shampoo and avoiding the use of any harsh chemicals, vigorous brushing hair, or styling products is essential.
To promote hair growth and reduce the risk of infection, use a special post-procedure shampoo and conditioner. Products that contain natural ingredients can help nourish the scalp and promote healthy hair growth.
Patients should also avoid any activities that could cause stress or tension to the scalp, such as tight braiding or wearing a headband. Hair Loss Treatment in Mysore is available at Manipal Hospitals, visit today.
