Hair loss treatment
Hair loss treatment depends on the type of hair alopecia you are going through. Therefore, consultation with a highly-experienced doctor is recommended. After consultation, your doctor will determine which treatment is suitable for you.
Normally, hair loss can be treated through three techniques;
- Non-Surgical procedure
Medication for hair loss treatment includes; Minoxidil, an over-the-counter liquid or foam, can be applied to the scalp twice daily to promote hair growth. This topical medication can cause irritation when applied too harshly.
Sometimes, hair loss occurs because of nutrition deficiency. Therefore, the doctor during the consultation prescribes a balanced diet along with medicines to help hair grow rapidly and healthily.
The surgical procedure, i.e., hair transplant is another option used as a hair loss treatment. This procedure is carried out when the patient suffers from permanent baldness. In most cases, the cosmetic surgeon uses the following techniques to generate the best possible results.
- Both FUT and FUE hair transplants are considered permanent solutions for acute hair alopecia. In FUT, the cosmetic surgeon removes a strip of the healthy hair-bearing area, usually from the back side of the head, and then transplants it to the balding area.
- In an FUE hair transplant, the surgeon extracts individual hair follicles from the skin and then implants them in the balding area.
- Scalp reduction is another type of surgical procedure that can be used to treat baldness or hair loss. It involves removing the bald skin on the head and replacing it with a hair-covered scalp

Causes of hair loss
Hair loss is a broad topic and therefore requires an in-depth study to understand the causes, events, and reasons behind hair loss.
In the following, there are some common reasons through which one can experience significant hair loss.
Hereditary hair loss
Androgenic alopecia, a common form of hair loss in both men and women, is often hereditary. According to the National Library of Medicine, an official website of the United States government, androgenic alopecia affects up to 50% of people. This type of hair loss can happen gradually. However, some people can experience it when they reach adult age.
Hair loss due to radiation treatment
Due to radiation treatment or chemotherapy, one can experience rapid hair loss. This type of hair loss is called “Anagen effluvium”. However, once the treatment stops, the hair gradually regrows.
In Alopecia areata, your immune system attacks the hair follicles that result in leaving bald spots on the scalp. It is an autoimmune condition, and therefore, sometimes, leads to total baldness.
Emotional or physical shock
One of the most common types of hair alopecia is “Telogen Effluvium”. It can happen because of stress, facing severe disease, hormonal changes, childbirth, postpartum, malnutrition, and mineral deficiency.
Fungal infection can affect the scalp and lead to small bald patches. Medically, it is known as Tinea capitis. However, it is treatable if a person consults with a reputable doctor and takes antifungal medication.
Applying too much pressure on hair by wearing ponytails or buns in a tight style can lead to traction alopecia. However, it is a temporary hair loss and can be treated by avoiding such things.
