Hair Loss Treatment

People lose between 50 to 100 hairs each day, this is a normal case scenario and something which is not considered alarming. In case, the hair loss is more, then it is an alarming sign. Hair is made up of a protein and it consists of a hair shaft, which is underneath the scalp and root that is responsible for the growth of hair. Hair loss is not only seen in adults but in some cases, teenagers also face hair loss problems. Deficiency of essential nutrients and proteins in the diet in adolescence leads to hair loss. Some medication and treatments like chemotherapy are also responsible for hair loss. Hair loss is also caused by some chemicals that people use to look good like hair gels and hair colours.

What is Hair Loss & its Causes ?

Hair Loss is also known as alopecia. The word alopecia alludes to male pattern baldness, diminishing hair or sparseness in any furry area of the body. Alopecia areata signifies “balding in regions”. In most cases, balding is a normal sign of aging and not a disease. Since it is not seen as life-debilitating to specialists it is regularly slighted. This is lamentable in light of the fact that balding can bring about genuine misery in an individuals’ life, with some extensive mental anxiety.

One of the main reasons for hair loss is physical stress. Any trauma experienced around the head – surgery, accident or a severe illness – can lead to the thinning of hair and eventual hair loss. However, this is a reversible effect, and once health is restored, so is the hair. Too much of anything is harmful, and too much of vitamin A is especially harmful to your hair as it can lead to hair loss. But like physical stress, even this is reversible and can hair can be restored once the dosage is corrected. And while we’re talking about too much of things, avoid using hair treatment products and/or hair press, heat therapy, hair therapy as they are all major contributors towards weakening the hair roots and eventually resulting in hair loss. Deficiency of both vitamin B and/or protein also results in hair loss, and adjustments in the diet should be made accordingly if one is found lacking either one of the two.These are some of the most common everyday causes for hair loss. There are some other causes as well, like total loss of hair which is the after effect of undergoing chemotherapy. Thyroid diseases and iron deficiency anemia also lead to hair loss, but are more commonly seen among females. So, if your checklist had you tick in any of the above reasons, pull up your sock but don’t pull out your hair. Find a solution and work around the problem, the thick gushing hair you were so proud of in your raging youth might still welcome you back.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has been in use since 1997 and has been approved for “permanent hair reduction” in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under the FDA’s definition, “permanent” hair reduction is lessening the number of hair growing again post treatment for a long term and stabilizing it. It is the most commonly practiced procedure at any Dermatology clinic. Lasers cause localized damage of hair follicle by selectively targeting melanin, while sparing the rest of the skin. For this reason, dark black and brown hair responds faster and better than dirty blonde hair. Lasers do not work on gray hair.


There are various laser equipments used for hair removal like Diode, ND YAG, Alaxandrite and Ruby. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is yet another kind of equipment, though not a laser, it can still be used for hair removal. Usually 6-8 treatment sessions are provided with a gap of four to eight weeks between each session. Depending upon the laser used, the procedure can be painless to mildly painful.

Post Procedure

Typically the shedding of the treated hair takes about two to three weeks. These hair strands should be allowed to fall out themselves and should not be manipulated by the patient. Hair removal lasers are effective treatment for “ingrown hairs” or “shaving bumps” medically known as pseudo folliculitis barbae. Laser hair reduction is the safest, cheapest and most effective method of hair removal and should be preferred over the painful methods of hair removal like waxing, threading and epilation.
