Hair loss

Whether it is transient or permanent, hair loss is a nightmare for everyone – men and women – as well as adds years to one's real age and overwhelming confidence. Fortunately, there are ways of treatment, even when the cause is not completely reversible. In addition, we can prevent hair loss or to reduce significantly the onset of that.
In the summer the head is more exposed to solar radiation UVA/UVB, the chlorine of the pool, the salt of the sea, the sand and dust, factors that affect the health of the scalp. Autumn is observed to fall hair like the leaves of the trees.
We must not confuse the transient alopecia with the other forms, such as androgenetic alopecia and γυροειδή alopecia.

Tips For Healthy Hair
  • Because the hair is composed mainly of a protein that is produced from the amino acid "cysteine" and "methionine" we are strengthening our diet with protein sources such as poultry, fish, red meat, legumes, milk and cheese.
  • Also consume liver, lentils, spinach, and beans, which are rich in iron, preferably in combination with foods that contain vitamin C (broccoli, figs, oranges, potatoes, grapefruit, apples, peppers), as well as the vitamin that facilitates the absorption of iron by the body.
  • Important role play also holes in the B-complex vitamins, particularly the B5, B6 and B9, which is involved in the synthesis of amino acids of which it is composed, the strain and the follicle of the hair. Even if the diet includes sufficient sources of vitamin B (yogurt, whole grains, red meat, nuts and eggs) can we get in addition a supplement, especially when we are in times of fatigue and stress, or when we are sick.
  • To strengthen the hair, use shampoo and restorative ampoules containing in their composition henna, gin - seng, thyme, rosemary, eucalyptus, cedar, nettle, sage or herb echinecea.
  • During the bathing do a gentle massage with your fingers on the scalp for 3-5 minutes. Thus stimulated, the blood circulation and facilitate the "power" of the hair follicle with the required nutrients.
  • If you have long hair, it doesn't hurt to get it with a special rubber band with a fabric lining before you go to bed, so as not to get entangled during sleep.
  • We limit as much as we can styling hair with hair dryer, iron, hair curler, etc., especially the seasons intensifies the hair loss (autumn-spring).
  • We prefer as the hairstyle a loose ponytail at the base of the neck, or loose chignon from the tight ponytail on the top of the head, especially if you have long hair, have greater weight because of the length.

The early identification of the causes of hair loss is crucial to choose the appropriate therapeutic regimen and start directly addressing the problem, but also to protect the existing hair follicles from further, and possibly irreversible fading.
The existing treatments, which most of the times they act synergistically (selected i.e., a treatment regimen that combines), have the following objectives:

  • The cessation of hair loss
  • The stabilization of the dilution
  • The strengthening of the hair follicles
  • The strengthening of the local microcirculation
  • The stimulation of hair growth
  • Cover the area of the dilution

The medication is a first-line treatment for both male and female type hair loss.
The aim is the slowdown in the rate of hair loss or/and the reversal of the process of miniaturization of the hair follicles.
So far, two drugs have been approved by the U.s. Food and Drug administration (FDA) for these purposes: the minoxidil local action (a modifier of biological reaction) and oral finasteride (hormonal level modifier).
The minoxidil, which has a vasodilating effect and circulates at a concentration of 2% and 5%, increases the duration of αναγενούς phase of the life cycle of the hair (in which it grows, and is rich in melanin), and enlarges and strengthens the tiny follicles, thus limiting further hair loss. The application of 1 ml of the skin of the head two times a day brings the best results after 26-52 weeks, with the top of the head (crown) to show the greatest improvement and the frontal line of the smallest. Apart from topical application, if necessary, can be made and infusions of minoxidil in the areas of thinning.
Adverse dermatological effects, such as irritation of the skin of the head and unwanted hair growth in a neighboring points of the skin of the forehead or face, they are rarely seen. It is worth noting that the interruption of treatment leads gradually (within a period of 4-6 months old) to the previous state. This should be monitored systematically the scalp with τριχοσκόπηση, in order to maintain the result on the basis of objective measurements and to increase or decrease the dosage or to maintain the effect with lower doses.
Similar action has and finasteride, the first approved oral treatment in pill form. It is essentially a competitive inhibitor of type II 5α-reductase, the enzyme involved in the conversion of testosterone to intact (DHT), and is responsible for hair loss. The best response to treatment is observed again in the top of the head, while the smallest in the frontal line.
It should be noted, however, that the finasteride is a teratogenic substance, and for this reason should not be taken by women who wish to have a child, while he has also proven to be ineffective in postmenopausal women. The side effects in men is uncommon (reduction of sexual desire and capacity) and presented in less than 2% of patients. It is completely reversible after discontinuation of treatment, and often resolved during continued treatment.

Mesotherapy And Hair Loss

In cases of hair loss and αλωπεκιών, we use mesotherapy to introduce the skin of the scalp, through the hair follicles of the appropriate medicinal, and multivitamin preparations, to strengthen and επανέκφυση of hair. Preceding taking the medical history, clinical examination and digital δερματοσκόπηση to diagnose the type of alopecia (androgenetica, diffuse, scarring, γυροειδής, etc.), so as to determine the pharmaceutical “cocktails” that will be used. The range of substances used included multivitamins, minerals, trace elements, antioxidants in combination with pharmaceutical substances, such as minoxidil, finasteride, dutasteride, steroids, etc. The treatments are done once a month for six to eight months, depending on the type of alopecia. From the first few treatments, we observe a reduction of hair loss, then stabilization and strengthening.
