Hair Loss and How To Re-Grow Beautiful Hair
Hair grows out of little pockets in the skin follicles. As per the experts at hair loss clinic in Berhampur – The Artmeis Medicare – there are about five million hair follicles on the body, including nearly 100,000 on the scalp. Each strand of hair grows in three phases:
- Telogen – This is the resting stage that takes place when the hair falls out and lasts 2 to 3 months.
- Catagen – This is the transition stage that takes place when the hair stops growing and lasts nearly 4 to 6 weeks.
- Anagen – This is the active growth stage of hair that lasts between 2 and 8 years.
The vast majority of hair follicles on the scalp are in the anagen stage, while just five to ten percent are in the telogen stage.
Every person is at the risk of losing hair, some more quickly than others. The follicle itself gets contracted and is made incompetent of re-growing anything. This sort of hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia, which is referred to as male pattern baldness. This plays out in two ways:
- The thinning of each hair, and
- The overall loss of density.
But, in certain cases of alopecia, these loses aren’t truly permanent. At least, not right away! At times, it can be slowed down or delayed.
So, there is hope! If you have been losing hair or if you think you are at risk of hair loss of thinning, then read on for some possible fixes. The insight and advice comes from an expert trichologist in Berhampur at The Artmeis Medicare. What is the key point? You have got to be proactive.
In cases of andogenetic alopecia, finasteride is still the gold standard, says the expert. He says that even younger men can slow or delay hair loss by starting a daily finasteride prescription. This medication works by inhibiting an enzyme that results in hair loss. In clinical trials, ninety percent of the patients either gained hair or maintained their hair over a 5-year period.
There are a few substitutes to finasteride, should it prove to be ineffective or if it starts causing side effects. One of these substitutes is minoxidil, which is a topical product available over the counter. It is known to encourage the growth of hair by activating potassium channels in the follicle and leads to growth factors and prostaglandins that promote hair growth.
Here is one that a lot of people might not have heard before. PRP – Platelet-rich Plasma Injections – have been sued in other fields of medicine for over a decade but have only reached dermatology within the last 5 years. Put simply” Blood is extracted from the person with hair loss and growth factors are extracted from the blood then injected back into the scalp where the hair loss is taking place. It is the most promising hair loss treatment in Berhampur that you can get at The Artmeis Medicare and re-grow beautiful hair without any side effects.
