Hair loss: A Seasonal Phenomenon

Along with the other reasons for hair loss, there comes an unlikely reason – the time of the year. Yes, the season is the culprit you have been unaware of. The season can be blamed, although the major reasons continue to be a poor diet, genetic predisposition or poor upkeep. Take note of the tips to tackle the problem.

Falling ‘Statistics

It is normal to lose around a hundred strands per day. The loss is not noticeable as the loss is replaced with an equal rate. Given the fact that majority of our hair is in the growth stage and the remaining portion is at a passive stage, it is this portion which tends to fall off.

Seasonal Hair Loss

While the summer months see a spurt in hair growth, the winter months are marked by a pattern of slow growth. The reason is that it’s the hair’s job to grant protection to the head. Rapid hair growth ensures full coverage of the scalp and subsequent protection from the sun. As the months become cooler, the adaptive protection mechanism becomes slow as excessive hair is not required. Even the animals show the same pattern. They shed a lot of hair during winters but not in summers. The loss is more evident in autumn even though it occurs in spring too.

When Baldness runs in the family!

Sometimes baldness is genetic, better known as androgenic alopecia. Nearly half of men over 50 are likely to show the signs of the same. Several procedures of hair transplant in Punjab have been conducted in the name of androgenic alopecia.

DHT is the devil

Another reason for male baldness is the male sex hormone, dihydrotestosterone or DHT. This hormone negatively influences the hair growth cycle.

Coping with the season’s loss

While we can’t control the seasons, we can help our mane cope up with the conditions. Follow these tips:-

  • Massage your mane

A gentle massage of 2-3 minutes goes a long way in strengthening the roots as it increases the flow of blood to the scalp.

  • Restore with castor

Castor oil is a boon during such spells. It strengthens and nourishes the hair roots as it is a rich source of vitamin E and an effective antioxidant.

  • Let ‘Loose’

Sometimes keeping the hair loosely bound or open relieves it of the friction that comes with the tight braids and ponytails.

  • Give styling a break

It will help if you refrain from using sticky styling substances like gels and mousse until the season lasts.

If your hair continues to fall even after the season has passed and the pattern has been going on for more than six weeks, then there is a cause for worry. Stress might be gnawing at you, or you are witnessing the repercussions of poor eating habits. A new medicine’s side effects could also be the abettor of hair loss. If the rate has escalated to an exponential level, you need to see a professional right away.

Transplant: the last resort

Transplant is the last option which can guarantee a crowning glory on your head if all other methods fail. If you find that the hair is not diminishing due to the above-mentioned reasons are the loss is alarming, it’s time for you to see a professional and take a proper medical course of treatment. Opt for an advanced centre instead of bargaining for a reduced hair transplant cost in India. You can live with a better coverage.

Don’t Fall For the Old Tales, Consider These Advanced Hair Transplant Techniques.

Socializing is a common habit that keeps many energized and smiling, but trust me, you won’t enjoy the occasion when you are certain that your bald spot is always before you. One fact about baldness is that it tends to capture every scene than the person, and in fact, it will shine more than your face. But why put up with such when there are advanced hair transplant techniques to rejuvenate your appearance?

What Are the Advanced Hair Transplant Options?

  • The Manual Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

There is no question about this latest hair transplant approach when it comes to delivering natural results. This hair transplant technique requires a surgeon to extract individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp after shaving it or not. The grafts are treated and later on introduced in the bald region following a right angle and direction for natural results. The demand for the manual FUE technique has drastically increased since 2014 due to the technique’s efficacy

  • The BIO-FUE Technique

There is no big difference between the BIO-FUE technique and the manual FUE approach. In the real sense, the BIO-FUE technique requires the surgeon to primarily conduct the hair transplant procedure after which a hair growth serum is produced from a patient’s blood and then injected into the recipient region. This approach of hair transplant in India is certainly expensive, most especially when a conducted in an advanced hair transplant centre.

  • The Modern Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

There is a big difference between the advanced FUT technique and the traditional FUT approach. Unlike the traditional approach that was characterized by doll-like results, the modern FUT technique is less invasive and as well effective in facilitating new hair growth. With this advanced approach, the surgeon will cut a strip from the back of the head to obtain individual hair follicles. The linear scar created is the major drawback of this technique, but modern hair transplant surgeons are well experienced when it comes to minimizing the scarring extent.

Hair Transplant Cost As Per the Surgical Option

Hair transplant prices largely differ depending on the hair transplant centre, surgical option selected, and the number of grafts to be extracted. Unlike other hair transplant surgical approaches, the ARTAS Robotic System is more expensive and conducted in sophisticated hair transplant centres. However, your hair transplant cost in India will require an average of Rs. 50,000 INR. Consider a consultation to understand your ideal surgical option.

JAK Inhibitors- A Game Changer in the World of Hair Restoration

1.jpg

As millions go bald around the world, hair experts aren’t settled with the prevailing hair loss treatments such as Minoxidil, Finasteride, therapies, and oral medications. From footballers, millionaires, presidents, artists, actors, among others, no one is spared from the worldwide misfortune/catastrophe known as hair loss, in other words, baldness.

How Do JAK Inhibitors Work?

JAK Inhibitors generally work by regulating the body’s autoimmune system. Fully known as Janus kinase inhibitors, this medication inhibits one or more of the Janus kinase family of enzymes, hence having an impact on the JAK-STAT signalling pathway. The numerous types of inhibitors have been previously and still being utilized in treating a wide range of medical conditions such as plaque psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis, just like the stem cell hair treatment approach.

The application of JAK Inhibitors in the hair restoration field is seen as a major breakthrough with desired results seen in a few patients who acted as a specimen.

However, researchers have noted that the treatment is only able to combat specific types of hair loss (alopecia) and just like any other drug, it is associated with its side effects, which are seen in a few patients.

During one of the clinical studies, a 25-year-old male was treated with JAKinhibs. The patient had gone bald since the age of 18 years due to alopecia areata. This same patient was also suffering from psoriasis, but within three months of treatment, he had retained his hair in the numerous parts such as the eyebrows, facial hair, eyelashes and underarms, not forgetting a complete regrowth on his scalp.

JAK Inhibitors- The Latest Deal

Studies about JAK Inhibitors began a few years back, pioneered by a team of researchers at Yale University in the USA. The results of the results have made many describe the treatment as a cure for baldness, but scientists aren’t inclined to this description, basically because it is not able to effectively treat the commonest form of hair loss or baldness known as Male Pattern Baldness.

Similarly, the treatment may involve various treatment approaches such as laser-hair therapy (a combination of drug therapy with low-level lasers) to stop hair loss and stimulate hair growth.

All in all, the “JAK Inhibitors” treatment approach is seen reliable with the various hair loss victims around the world. The treatment also joins the existing hair loss treatments such as Minoxidil, Finasteride, BIO-FUE, hair transplant, therapies, and oral medications.

The treatment is seen suitable for males and females with various hair loss levels, meaning that one can opt for the therapy before stretching to a hair transplant in India. In addition, the treatment serves as a better option for those who rely on wigs to cover their bald scalps. Certainly, this hi-tech treatment approach is suitable for restoring hair, boosting self-esteem, and facial appearance.

Possible Side-effects

Just like any other treatment, the ‘JAK Inhibitors’ treatment has a few side-effects that include a low sex drive or loss, dizzy spells, and sweating of the hands and feet. These are some of the side-effects associated with Finasteride treatment, but researchers stress that 98% of males who are treated with ‘JAK Inhibitors’ complain from no side effects.

The Inside Story of Hair Transplant

The Inside Story of Hair Transplant

Baldness is one of the major problems faced by today’s people. Loss of hair is quite common due to aging, side effects of medicines, hormonal imbalance, HIV infection, low thyroid function, chemotherapy, and nutritional deficiency. Amidst the infinite reasons of hair fall and baldness, there comes a ray of hope in the form of hair transplant. It has lent hope to millions dealing with after effects of baldness like loss of self-esteem, dipping self-confidence, and depression. Hair Transplant in India is a common procedure that ensures that you recover all of the above, including your hair.

The whys and how’s of Hair Transplant

It is a surgical procedure that transplants hair from a normal, hairy part of the body to a bald part of the body. The former is known as the donor site, and the latter, the recipient site. Primarily; it is used for treating male baldness. Even eyelashes, eyebrows, beard and chest hair can be restored by this technique.

The monetary facet

Don’t be misled by advertisements claiming to perform transplantation at unbelievingly cheap prices. A low price can’t be equated with the lack of competent doctor and careless post-surgery handling. An experienced and qualified doctor, proper infrastructure, and a trained team capable of handling any emergency are some of the factors that can’t be overlooked. Any lapse on this part can never be compensated in terms of low cost. The cost of the procedure ranges from Rs.35,000 to Rs.80,000.The price depends on the number of grafts required.

Factors to be considered when going for a transplant

  • Qualification and experience of the surgeon –This is the foremost deciding factor. A transplant can’t be performed by just any doctor. One should be very clear about who is going to be in charge, his reputation and past career graph.

  • A dedicated, trained, and a well-qualified team – An expert team which is available round the clock.

  • A well-equipped centre – The centre should be well equipped and have the proper infrastructure to face the situation in case of any eventuality.

The cost of a ‘cheap hair implant’

A cheap hair transplant may result in the following undesired results-

  1. Unnatural Hairline – The resultant hairline may be very low, giving it an artificial look.

  2. Very Low Density — Due to damage to hair roots, all transplanted grafts don’t grow. This can also reduce the diameter of the resultant hair.

  3. Folliculitis – If proper hygiene is not maintained, severe itching and infection may ensue.

  4. Necrosis, or the death of most of the cells in an organ or tissue due to disease, injury, or failure of the blood supply may strike the donor or recipient area.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE)

Abbreviation for Follicular Unit Extraction is a technique that is undertaken in a long single session or several small sessions. The patient needs to have patience as it could be painfully long. The time taken for the surgery depends on a variety of factors, like the surgeon’s experience, harvesting speed, characteristic of the patient. FUE Hair Transplant procedure could stretch from a period of two hours to two consecutive days. The FUE procedure has many advantages over other techniques. There is no linear incision so there is no scarring, only small scars are there, which are not visible to the naked eye. Also, the post-surgical pain is minimal. Besides, it gives very natural results. The recovery period is also as minimal as 7 days.

But it also has a flip side to it – the cost is high. It is also a demanding process and only a skillful surgeon can acquire the art and the science of carrying out the procedure with competence.

Suitable Age for hair transplant

Some men experience baldness in their 20s. This baldness is due to inherited traits. When these men reach in the 30s they totally get bald. They should go for hair transplant surgery when baldness stops in them. If they do hair transplanting when baldness was going on then there transplanted hair will also fall. The most suitable age for the hair transplant is between the 40s and 50s.

Illegal things that some hair transplant surgeons do

Illegal things that some hair transplant surgeons do

Since hair loss has a wide market today, some illiterate and inexperienced surgeons have taken the opportunity to exploit patients for their own benefit. Many sub-standardized hair transplant clinics are conducting business illegally and in a poor hygienic environment. This is why a patient must take a good survey before you finally settle in a hair transplant clinic for the procedure;

From collected data and a survey, here are some of the illegal and absurd practices in some hair transplant clinics;

Hiring technicians

A hair transplant in India must be conducted by an expert or a well-trained surgeon, especially in the field of surgeries. What some clinics do is to hire part timers (technicians) to conduct surgeries on patients. This has led to a high number of botched surgeries

Wastage of hair follicles

Due to the lack of expertise and experience, some surgeons over harvest the donor area, making patients lose more hair in their own clinics. This is hidden to the patients since they are under local anesthesia.

Nurses performing the surgeries

Some surgeons due to their busy schedules handle over patients into the hands of nurses who are trained by mere watching the surgeon perform the procedure in three or four patients. This is real jeopardizing patients’ lives.

Poor sterilization of instruments

Sharing of sharp instruments is one of the commonest ways of spreading life threatening diseases like HIV and Hepatitis.

The hair transplantation procedure for African-American is very much similar with ethnicities hair transplantation but there are some factors that should be considered in the pre-op, operative and post-operative stages in order to get the most beneficial results. These are listed below:

  • The history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring must be known to the hair transplant surgeon.
  • The scarring scalp disorders and scarring alopecias – the most common in African men are CCCA (Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia), Traction Alopecia, Dissecting Cellulitis
  • Adequate donor density – due to the thick curls of the hair, donor density can be disguised, thus making donor look thicker than it is.

Operative factors

  • Hairline design – African-American male are more concerned and demanding. Hence, they will always want the less temporal recession in the design.
  • While performing the strip surgery, some want dissolvable sutures thus making healing process more challenging. Others recommend non-dissolvable sutures to lower the inflammatory response. For African-American, this method would be beneficial.
  • With FUE, there must be the equal amount of extraction and harvesting so as to ensure the correct angle.
  • Also recently ARTAS robotic system is being studied for African-American hair restoration.

Postoperative factors

  • Hyperpigmentation – the skin darkening can occur on both donor and recipient sites.
  • Ingrown hairs/folliculitis – this can occur after the 2-3 months of the surgery because of curly hair but can be easily treated with medicines.
  • The hair growth with alopecia scars can be less strong than the virgin scalps
  • Keloid or hypertrophic eruptions can be medically easily treated.
