Hair Loss Facts & Causes
Hair grows everywhere on our body but are not grown on the palms of our hands or the soles of our feet. Some hairs are very fine and not visible to the naked eye.
What is hair loss?
Keratin generated in the hair follicles produce new hair cells and old, dead cells are forced out. This happens at the rate of six inches per year. The hair that is visible is actually made up of dead keratin cells. On an average, an adult loses about 100 hairs per day and retains 100,000 to 150,000 per day. 90% of hair on an individual’s head is always growing.
Types of hair loss
When individuals grow with age, their hair growth also slows down. Hair loss is also known as alopecia.
Androgenic alopecia Hair loss begins in the teens and this condition is usually genetic.
Involutional alopecia Hair gradually thins with age and hair follicles go into the resting phase. This type of hair loss is natural.
Alopecia universalis All body hair including the scalp, eyebrows and eyelashes are lost.
Alopecia areata This is a form of patchy hair loss which might result in complete baldness. Though, hair may return in a few years.
Telogen effluvium Large amounts of hair go into resting phase and are shed at once. This is temporary thinning of hair which may occur due to hair growth cycle changes.
Trichotillomania Common even in children, an individual actually pulls out one’s own hair. It is termed as a psychological disorder.

Treatments Available at Clinic Elegance
FUE This is known as follicular unit extraction, a scarless and non-sutured procedure of hair transplantation. The directly extracted follicular units are placed in the donor areas using micropunches. This is an extremely popular procedure mainly because it is less time consuming and painless in terms of recovery.
FUT It is called follicular unit extraction. As the name suggests, follicular units are extracted in groups and harvested to be placed in the recipient area. This is one of the two advanced techniques of hair transplantation, popular just next to FUE.
LL Laser therapy A super advance therapy, LLLT promotes hair growth by increasing blood circulation. Low level lasers are used to treat hair follicles in the area.
Stem serum This technique uses fat extracts to promote regrowth of hair by revitalizing hair and stimulating non-androgenic hair growth.
Bio-fibre hair transplant Synthetic hairs are implanted into the individual’s scalp. This provides an equally natural look, and is ideal for patients who are not willing to wait for results of hair transplants. Besides, areas that a hair transplant surgery cannot cover, is filled by synthetic bio-fibres.
Body hair transplant Advanced degree of hair loss requires BHT. Grafts from different parts of the body are extracted to be implanted at the recipient site. With the advent of BHT there has been created a vast resource of unused hair which can now be successfully used for hair restoration.
PRP therapy PRP has a great effect on dormant hair follicles. A derma roller is rubbed on to the scalp before the PRP is applied. Alternatively, PRP can also be injected into the affected area with a fine needle.
Hair Loss (Men Vs Women)
Hair loss (men/women)
Hair loss in men
Hair loss in men is termed as male pattern baldness. It is a very common type of hair loss in men. Androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness affects almost 95% of the men. It has a set pattern of a receding hairline at first and then gradual thinning at the crown and temples.
Genetics The cause of male pattern baldness is attributed to genetics. It is inherited from either parent or passed down through the DNA from generation to generation. This baldness is also classified under the Norwood Classification as one of the twelve types of hair loss.
Androgens Men with male pattern baldness are sensitive to androgens in parts of the scalp. The hormones cause the hair follicles to shrink to such a small size that they eventually cannot replace lost hairs.
Finasteride Propecia is an anti-androgen, which blocks the influence of male hormones and arrests hair fall.
Minoxidil lotion This was originally a treatment for high blood pressure also applied to the scalp to promote hair growth as a side effect.
Hair loss in women
Hair loss in women is as common as hair loss in men. Female pattern baldness is not understood well and most women are subject to silent suffering.
Androgen levels At menopause most of the hair on the head is thinning and facial hair becomes coarse due to fluctuations in androgen hormonal levels.
Family history It may run in the family and be passed down from a previous generation to be inherited.
Aging As women age, their hair growth pattern also slows down, resulting in hair loss.
Hairline does not recede, but there is significant thinning of hair at the crown. It usually widens from the center and does not result in total baldness unlike men.
Minoxidil applications to the scalp with a 2% concentration can help in regrowth of hair. Spirinolactone, cimetidine, ketoconazole and birth control pills also help hair growth.
Hair transplant Hair is removed from thicker areas and planted in the areas that are balding. The results are natural looking and 100% safe.
Is hair loss in men different than in women?
Hair loss affects both men and women. Androgenetic alopecia is a condition that is found both in men and women. In men it is called male pattern hair loss and in women it is called female pattern baldness. In both the causes are attributed to imbalances in Dihydrotestosterone levels that cause follicles to shrivel.
Male pattern hair loss is accepted whereas female pattern hair loss is not a very acceptable condition.
The process of hair loss is the same in both men and women. Hair follicles are miniaturized and terminal follicles develop. Treatments also include androgen enhancers and similar hair replacement techniques.
Hair loss in women can be detected early. Hair loss in men is highly progressive and can even sometimes start in their teens.
Male baldness starts at the crown and ends at the temples. Men can lose hair in different parts of the scalp. Female pattern hair loss is diffuse with overall thinning of the hair leading to exposure of the scalp. The hairline in women is usually retained with thinning concentrated at the crown.
Androgenetic alopecia is associated in men with many factors such as coronary artery disease, prostate cancer, diabetes, obesity and hypertension besides genetics, aging and hormonal imbalances. The causes of hair loss in women is associated with hair styling, hereditary, aging, thyroid disorders, birth control pills, ovarian cysts, medications for blood pressure and depression, chemical hair treatments and compulsive pulling of hair.
For both men and women treatment options are extremely effective. The best way to approach hair loss is early detection and expert opinions. Clinic Elegance has state of the art treatment varieties available for both hair loss patterns. Call our office today for an appointment.

Self-donation The individual is the donor for their own hair reproduction. This proves to be a great advantage since donor areas and recipient areas are both from the same owner.
Cost effective The process of hair restoration is an art, involving several analyses and tests before arriving at a conclusion. The cost usually depends upon the kind of result required by the individual and the number of grafts that have to placed to get the desired effect.
Safe Hair restoration surgeries do not require complete anaesthesia. Unless an individual desires many grafts, the procedure is relatively simple, leaving the patient with little or no pain upon recovery. Success rates of hair transplant surgeries are massive.
Post surgical recovery Recovery from hair replacement surgery is fast. A patient can get back to work within 24 hours of the treatment.
Uniformity and distribution of hair One of the greatest advantages of hair implantation surgery is the uniformity of distribution it can achieve. The overall follicular distribution is well maintained. Unlike more traditional surgeries, techniques in follicular implants are treated as micro-surgeries, which means better placement with favorable results.
