What causes hair loss?

Miami hair loss can occur for several reasons. Some can be controlled, treated and others can not. Even sometimes the causes of hair loss are not the same for men as for women.

  • Age
  • Heritage

  • Some medicines or treatments for diseases

What causes hair loss in women?

After childbirth, the hormones of women go through a period in which they are reduced and this can result in hair loss. This hair loss is temporary, it is very common that after 12 months everything returns to normal.

Women tend to diet to lose weight. Sometimes these diets are very aggressive and are not well balanced. If you do not receive all the nutrients: proteins, fatty acids, zinc and other vitamins; Your hair will fall out.

hair loss causes

Another frequent reason, are the treatments and the dyes. The products that are applied to change the hair color or transform the appearance of the hair, sometimes are harmful to the health of the scalp and it is very likely that if it is damaged, the hair will fall out and the new hair will not grow.

What causes hair loss in men?

The most frequent causes of hair loss in men are the following:

Genetics: it is proven that almost 70% of men suffer from androgenetic alopecia. It is commonly known as baldness and can manifest itself from very early ages. There are men who at 18 years old already begin to lose hair.

Age: As time passes, the strands of the hair become thinner and the hair grows with less force. If there is the predisposition in your family of hair loss, that does not help. In men, a fatal combination is genetics and hormones. With the passage of time the birth of hair at the root of the head begins to recede at the temples, then the forehead, at the crown of the head, until all the hair falls off.

Stages of hair loss

Norwood Classification: This graph identifies the entire process of hair loss (men) by stages, and is very valuable because with it it is easy to identify at what stage the patients are and how we can treat them.

  • Stage 1: This first phase is sometimes not very visible. At this stage, the hairline begins to recede. It is not to worry and has no treatment.
  • Stage 2: The hair recedes into a triangular shape and the frontal temporal areas are exposed. The hair that is close to the ears recedes and baldness begins to be evident.
  • Stage 3: From this moment, the level of hair loss can already be considered as baldness. The temples are exposed and with few hairs. The hair that is in the front area will form a crown.
  • Stage 4: The symptoms of the third stage are aggravated and the recoil of the hair at the temples and the front of the head are very evident.
  • Stage 5: The hair that is in the crown almost disappears. The absence of hair near the ears and the temples are quite considerable.
  • Stage 6: This is a phase in which the hair located in the crown disappears. And the other areas become more critical.
  • Stage 7: This is the last stage and hair loss is critical. We can only find hair in a semicircle in the ears. Most men at this point prefer to shave their heads.

Ludwig Classification: This is the classification of the three progressive stages of hair loss in women employed during the evaluation.

  • Phase 1: At this time women have a shortage of hair on the top of the head. Sometimes when you comb your hair and make a streak, you realize that you have less hair than you should have.
  • Phase 2: During this stage, a lot of hair is lost, there is a decrease in volume in general. From this point, you can already apply treatment.
  • Phase 3: This stage is the most critical of hair loss in women. People will notice hair loss. The baldness will become evident and it will continue falling the hair.

Hair loss symptoms

If you wake up in the morning and find many hairs on your pillow, this may be the first sign that your hair is falling out.

If you feel the irritation of the scalp, or have any dermatitis or redness, come to a consultation, because that may be the cause of hair loss.

If you bathe and you drop an excessive amount of hair, that means that you should evaluate that loss of hair.

If you have dandruff or fat, this can cause you to lose hair.

This type of hair loss, we can identify when there is a receding hair, followed by a thinning of the strands of hair at the temples and the crown of the head. The hair goes back until it is in the shape of a horseshoe. This male pattern baldness is hereditary and is usually caused by having too much of a male hormone. In women this pattern of female baldness, we begin to see when the hair becomes thin and loses volume in the upper area of the head.

Alopecia Areata

This type of alopecia creates hollows of baldness in the head. Spaces the size of a coin. It is common in young people and adolescents, and in most cases, the hair will grow back. This alopecia is caused by problems with the immune system.

Cicatricial Alopecia

During this type of alopecia, the place where the hair is born is destroyed and that means that the hair can not grow back.

Ethnic hair loss (African American hair loss)

African-American women braid their hair quite often, this causes the hair to split and suffer greater wear. This type of hairstyles are very tight and exert a greater force on the scalp. If we add to that the hair of the black ethnicity is drier and in general the females do all kinds of treatments, with heat and aggressive products for the hair, because they are more prone to suffer from alopecia cicatricial central centrifuge.

How is hair loss diagnosed?

At the first consultation with the specialist, you will be asked a series of questions, analyzes and a summary of your medical history will be requested. Doctors always look for the cause of hair loss and then find the right treatment.

Hair loss treatments

The treatments that are recommended for hair loss in Miami, will always be conditioned by several factors. What is causing this baldness or loss of hair and the particularity of each person?

Specialists can recommend surgeries, medications, laser therapy, wigs; The result that the patient wants is also very important.

For example, to treat pattern baldness 2 drugs that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration may be applied.

According to them:

"Minoxidil (Rogaine). Minoxidil is an over-the-counter liquid or foam that is rubbed on the scalp twice a day to make hair grow and to prevent further hair loss. It can be used by men and women. With this treatment, some people regrow their hair, lose their hair more slowly or both. The effect reaches its peak at 16 weeks and it is necessary to continue applying the medication so that it continues to have an effect.
Finasteride (Propecia). This prescription medication is available only for men. They are pills that are taken daily. Many men who take finasteride experience a decrease in hair loss and some may grow new hair. It is necessary to continue taking it so that it continues to take effect. "

There is also alternative medicine. There are some studies that show that lavender oil, mixed with cedar wood and rosemary and thyme oils, can be effective if hair loss is caused by Alopecia Areata.

At Jolie Plastic Surgery we also suggest you use mild shampoos and products that are not too aggressive for your hair; avoid stress, rest and have the hours of sleep you need to recover from daily work and very important: keep a balanced and balanced diet.

In many cases, baldness needs a hair transplant. There are two fundamental techniques:

The extraction of strips (FUT). A strip of the scalp is removed and the follicular units are cut creating the grafts and transplanting them to the affected area.

The extraction of follicular units (FUE). Follicular units are extracted one by one and then grafted. This option is more delayed but avoids the linear scar.

Here at Jolie Plastic Surgery, we performed this method with the Neograft robotic machine and the result has been impressive.
