Thick, Soft and Silky…We’re Talking About Hair
Hair loss is the part of the aging process women and men fear the most. By the age of 40, nearly 50% of men have some evidence of hair loss. While there are a variety of causes of hair loss, androgenic alopecia represents the majority of the causes of hair loss. Androgenic alopecia is a hereditary condition which can be from the mother or father. When this gene for hair loss is present, androgens (testosterone, dihydrotestosterone) interact with hair follicles and result in shedding.
Most people associate hair loss with male pattern baldness, but hair loss is much more prevalent than you may think in women also. More than 21 million women in the US suffer from Female Pattern Hair Loss. Hair loss occurs to not only the scalp but also the eyebrows, legs, arms, and many areas of the body. Unfortunately, not all areas of hair loss are desirable. Hair loss of the face and head can impact an individual’s self-image dramatically.
There has been ongoing research in the field that has advanced the treatment of hereditary hair loss. Fortunately, everyone has areas on their scalp which are genetically resistant to the effects of hormonal hair loss. Surgery enables the transfer of individual follicles from resistant areas to balding areas of the scalp. When those hairs are transferred to balding areas, they continue to grow because they retain their genetic code.
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) has revolutionized the treatment of hair restoration.Instead of transferring plugs of hair, individual hair follicles can be transplanted for a more natural result. FUT can be performed utilizing the “strip method” or follicular unit extraction (FUE). The “strip method” involves removal of a strip of hair from the posterior scalp which is converted into individual hair follicles prior to transplantation. FUE is a process in which the individual hair follicles are harvested from the scalp and transferred individually. The advantages of FUE over the “Strip method” include: no linear scar on the back of the scalp, minimal downtime, and the ability for patients to wear their hair short. Following transplantation most patient experience a process of shedding and regrowth, with most patients noticing new growth at 3 months. However, the final result typically takes 6 months to a 1 year for the full result to be appreciated.
Instead of transferring plugs of hair, individual hair follicles can be transplanted for a more natural result.
Even though hair restoration techniques are more advanced than ever, achieving the most natural outcome requires an experienced surgeon who understands the way hair grows in order to best position the follicle. Several nonsurgical treatments, such as topical or oral medications, work by preventing the hair follicle from shedding, and are important for maintenance of residual hair follicles and preventing further loss.
Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) has been shown to reactivate dormant hair follicles to reenter the growth phase and promote hair growth. Platelets contain growth factors that stimulate regeneration within the skin which triggers the reactivation of follicles. This process involves concentrating the platelets within whole blood and injecting them into the affected area.
With the growing variety of effective treatment options it is important to talk with an experienced surgeon to determine the best treatment for you.
